It's sharing time!
OK...truth be told, it's solicitation time. Before I opened up NoPo Paws, I had tons of time to search the interwebs, click through on every thoughtful comment on the blogs I was following to find more blogs. Nowadays, it's hard enough to find the time to make a thoughtful comment (you don't even want to know how many times I re-read a post, all the comments and my own draft comment before hitting that comment button), let alone find new blogs. So...here is a list of five of my favorite blogs. Choosing just 5 was super hard so I went the route of selecting 5 which I enjoy for different reasons. I would super appreciate it if you'd let me know some of your favorite blogs in the comments so I can take the lazy woman route of finding awesome new blogs to follow.
Two Pitties in the City: A & E do a wonderful job of highlighting living in a big city like Chicago with 2 big dogs. Plus they take awesome pictures, have diverse and thoughtful posts, and Mr B and Miss M are the most adorable sibling Pitties on the interwebs.
Love and a Six Foot Leash: Aleksandra does an amazing job showcasing the beauty and spirit of their bully breed fosters. When I read her blog, I lament my subpar photography skills and my somewhat scattered and not quite so eloquent writing style. Love and a Six Foot Leash is an inspiration in terms of foster & rescue, writing and photography!
Rescued Insanity: Kristine's honesty always makes me realize I am not alone when I struggle with myself and with my dogs. I envy her ability to put it all out there and I appreciate that she's doing so 'cause it makes me feel better when I'm not feeling so perfect, which is pretty much all the time!
Wootube: The Food Lady is H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S! I must admit that this is the only blog on this list of which I am truly just a stalker and have never commented on a post. I am way too busy laughing after reading her posts to add any comment of value. Plus we met a couple who had adopted one of her previous fosters this summer and bonded over her blog. I love it when real world and internet world collide!
Of Pitbulls and Patience: Skye has the best pittie smile in the history of all pittie smiles. And Parker is a saint for putting up with her crazy antics.
What do I enjoy about these and the other blogs I follow (that I felt super bad about not putting in this post)? I love hearing about other people's dogs, the issues they face and the solutions they come up with. I love hearing about others' experiences with animal rescue, fostering and advocacy. I enjoy being part of a supportive community and know when I have an issue or request (like turning me on to some new blogs, hint, hint) that the people I've connected with online will come through. :)
Thanks for being awesome, guys!
