I recently saw a list of “top Canadian blogs to follow” and thought it was interesting. Half the blogs on the list don’t update often (once a month!) so I was wondering how that could be a top blog? To me, a top blog updates regularly offering insightful, meaningful and engaging articles and content. I’d expect a TOP BLOG to update more than once a month or even week. Why follow a blog that doesn’t have anything new to offer?
I did a little bit of digging and saw that if you PAID a monthly fee you could be listed on this one specific list. No thank you. I’m not sure how one gets on other lists but personally, I look for blogs to follow that have new and engaging content. I love reading blogs that don’t come across as know it all, instead shares information from their own personal journey and wants to relay that to the reader.
In my honest opinion, a top blog should offer a variety of things: Articles, Recipes, DIY/Crafts and great photos.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share my absolute favorite blogs. I don’t read blogs daily, I check my list of blogs I like to follow once a week so that I have some stuff to read and catch up on! Some are food, some are parenting and others lifestyle. These are the top 10 blogs I read weekly and think you’d really enjoy following as well – also, none of them paid me to be on this list. I genuinely think they are incredible bloggers, photographers, people, and writers. Take a look!
