Amanda Rose Zampelli's blog is actually where I first heard of 30 Days of Lists! I had been getting lost on the internet searching for inspiration for my own blog. This was back in March, when I was kind of starting to lose momentum with keeping up with my New Year's Resolution of trying to put up a new blog post every week. As I looked more into 30 Days of Lists, I had learned that it was a growing community of all different types of people (crafters, bloggers, just people who like to write lists, etc...). The prompts seemed intriguing enough, and the commitment level was totally manageable. You basically put as much or as little effort into this daily challenge... So long as you put together some sort of list... All while encouraging me to get my creative juices flowing at least once a day for a whole month. Anyway... that's my short summary of how I even got into this daily listing challenge, and how I found Amanda Rose Zameplli's blog!
I believe I found the last two blogs on Pinterest while looking for any health related blogs.
I loved how bubbly, friendly, and real Julie Fagan from Peanut Butter Fingers was. After browsing her blog for just a few minutes, I really felt like I was getting to know her! Her style of writing and daily posts continue to inspire me even months after I stumbled upon her blog.
I found Erica Castillo's blog, To the Sea, when I was looking up healthy postpartum lifestyles. Let me just say, power to you girl! Erica attended UH Law School (another reason for why I love her blog: she spent time living in Hawai'i like me) and was right back in the classroom the Monday after delivering her daughter. Her and her family are very well traveled (a goal that Thomas and I have for our family). She also does an excellent job at documenting her children's lives (something I aim to do). She is also very honest in a real and edgy way.
I just thought it was worth explaining how I found these blogs and a few of the reasons for why each of them inspire me! I hope you enjoyed some of the places that I get my inspiration from. My family also inspires me... As well as motivate me. Enjoy yesterday's vlog!
