Top Ten Tuesday: Five Blogs I’ve Followed the Longest and Five I’ve Recently Followed

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites.” I’ve come across far too many nice, talented, and amazing bloggers to ever be able to choose only ten that are my favorite, so instead I’m listing five blogs I’ve followed the longest and five I just recently followed. Be sure to check out their blogs!

The Veterans:

Even though I haven’t met any of these ladies in person, I feel a strong kinship with them because it feels like we’ve been a part of the same community for so long.

1. Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek – Rachel and I have been blogging for about the same amount of time and although we don’t read a lot of the same books, I still feel like we mesh well together. She’s currently taking a break from blogging, but be sure to be on the lookout for her return.

2. Cristina @ Girl in the Pages – I believe Cristina and I also started blogging around the same time. I always enjoy her reviews and can always count on her honest opinion.

3. Lipsyy @ Lipsyy Lost & Found – When I think of Lipsyy, I think of Halloween. October is a special time on both our blogs. There aren’t a ton of blogs that devote a lot of time to the horror genre, so I love having her on my reader when October comes around.

4. Holly @ Nut Free Nerd – Holly is one of the most insightful bloggers I follow. If you’re looking to follow someone who is really smart and articulate, follow Holly.

5. Stephanie @ Stephanie’s Book Reviews – Stephanie and I don’t always read the same books, but when we do, we usually agree on them. Also, I just found out we both ship Bellarke pretty hard and I could use some support in that arena.

The Newbies:

I just started following these bloggers recently and am really looking forward to getting to know them more.

6. Wendy @ whatthelog – My first impression of Wendy is that she’s incredibly open. I really admire her for it. She does a very neat thing on her blog where she showcases diverse bloggers which is pretty awesome too.

7. LaRonda @ Flying Paperbacks – I came across LaRonda’s blog thanks to the Comment Challenge. As a cohost, I get introduced to a variety of bloggers and sometimes I come across one that I’m not partnered with, but whom I want to know more, so I follow. That’s what happened here.

8. Dani @ Perspective of a Writer – Dani has such a wide variety of posts on her blog. I’m always so impressed and have enjoyed the interactions we’ve had.

9. Carolina @ Fictionologyst – I’ve only been following Carolina for about a month, but I already feel like we’ve got a really good rapport. She’s got excellent taste in books and music (my TBR and music library have both increased thanks to her).

10. Aimee @ Aimee, Always – Aimee is the last blogger I followed and I don’t know too much about her, but she does have some excellent taste in books and a great selection of posts.

Do you still follow the same blogs from when you first became a blogger? How do you decide who to follow? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.

Giveaway Alert: I am giving away my ARC of Seafire by Natalie C. Parker. I recently just finished it and loved it. I already preordered the novel when I received this ARC, so I’m hoping this copy makes someone else happy. This is a Twitter giveaway, click on the image to be directed to my tweet. Ends 8/16. US only.

  1. I only know a couple of these so clearly I need to do some blog hopping. 🙂 I like how you broke this one out- tough topic this week in a way, I struggled with how to do it.

  2. I always enjoy Christina’s (Girl in the Pages) blog when I visit. Speaking of which, you’ve reminded me, it’s been a while since I have visited… I need to remedy this! *clicks blog link*

    There are SO many amazing bloggers who deserve shout-outs in these posts. Alas, there’s simply not enough room for them all.

  3. I started blogging five years ago and it’s been really cool seeing how the blogs I follow have changed and grown over that time. It’s also exciting to see more bloggers join the community and discover more blogs to follow!

  4. Great list! I love how you featured both ‘old’ and new bloggers. I still follow a lot of the same blogs as when I first started, but some stopped posting over the years. I’m always discovering new favourites that each bring something different to the table.

        1. I got my hopes up this season, but with every episode, I slowly deflated. They have such a great foundation. I kind of wish the writers would just tell us if it was going to happen or not, because there are times where I feel like they are just stringing us along.

        2. Same! I started twitter stalking Bellarke fan sites and it sounds like the main producer guy of the show kind of hates all the Bellarke shippers, but will throw them a bone in interviews occasionally and bait people. What I really hated about the season finale this year was that it was supposed to also work as a series finale if they weren’t renewed so it makes me think they’ll never get together. They are really the only reason I watch that show. I spend way too much of free time thinking about them.

  5. I can’t remember a time without Leah @ Fiction Fan, Naomi @ Consumed By Ink, Anne @ IveReadThis, and Ami @ Luv to Read, Laila @ Big Reading Life, and you! I tend to unfollow bloggers who don’t do the courtesy of reading and commenting on my blog. I’ve followed some great blogs that are interesting, but if the blogger isn’t engaging, it’s not my cup of tea.

  6. Thanks so much for the shout out! I’ve had a bit of a hiatus lately but I’m currently working on a new look for my blog and hope to get back to posting regularly soon. It’ll be October before we know it! :O Thanks for continuing to follow!! xx
