8+ Blogs To Read When You Need A Little Inspiration

As a person with a blog, it’s obvious that I like to spend time reading other blogs and articles! With video content taking over the internet, I can say I still find joy in reading (and you do too if you’re reading this). I love to follow along with blogs that inspire and motivate me in some way. There is nothing better than reading an article and feeling pumped up to try something new or just get after something! 

There are literally endless amounts of blogs out there. It can be hard to find ones that you love. The best feeling is finding a new blog to start reading and binge reading a bunch of their content! Its both a blessing and a curse lol. A blessing because duh, you found a great blog. But a curse because my to-do list will suffer a bit from the binge reading!

So, here are some blogs that I personally read and find to be motivating or inspiring in some way! I hope you can find someone new to follow along with or at least some good reading material!

Best inspirational blogs to read

What makes a blog/ blogger inspirational? Everyone will answer that question a little differently.

To me, I like when a blog is full of content about goals, personal development, or some type of lifestyle I aspire to live. That’s a big reason I started my own blog! I want to inspire people to live their best lives and go after their dreams.

So, these are some blogs that have inspired me in some way either with the content they post or the lifestyle they live! Happy reading :)

Final thoughts

I do love some video content from time to time and I wont lie, YouTube is probably one of my favourite platforms to engage with. I think I like YouTube for the same reason I love reading blogs – the connection over longer form content.

Whether you are reading someone’s written words or watching a 20 minute long video, you are connecting with that person on a deeper level than a 5 second Instagram video. As a society we crave connection which is so weirdly lost on SOCIAL media.

I hope you find someone new to follow and connect with virtually. I know I will be keeping up with all these bloggers :)

What blogs do you follow for some inspiration? Who did I miss from the list? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
