Today I'm grateful for . . . my blogging friends. :) Some of my best writing buddies have come from blogging, including two of my critique partners. *Waves to nevillegirl and storytellergirlgrace* While I read several blogs (I believe I'm upwards of 50 subscriptions in my Feedly), a few of them really stand out to me and I'd like to give them a little shout-out now (in no particular order). :) (NOTE: Writing blogs will come later--for now this is just a list of my favorite blogs that aren't necessarily writing-focused).
Sushi and Pizza (My mom and dad's blog--they're both hilarious).
I Don't Eat My Drumsticks (My brother's blog--he's also hilarious, and a total goofball).
The Book Chewers (A blog all about books--yes, I contribute to this blog, but I'm not talking about my
own posts. I'm talking all of the other posts. You should seriously check it out!)
As a Teen Writer (The lovely Karoline Kingley's blog--her posts are very in depth and are usually good conversation starters. Her writing is amazing, and I wouldn't be surprised if she gets published very soon!)
Musings From Neville's Navel (nevillegirl's blog--I don't think I've met anyone nerdier on the online world. nevillegirl is extremely funny and her blog has a great variety of posts, from books, to movies, to writing, to school, you can find it all there!)
Notebook Sisters (Cait and Mime's blog--I love these two. They're extremely random, quirky, and funny. Cait and Mime are sisters, and their chemistry online is awesome. They make for an interesting read.)
Rainbows and Penguins (Beth's blog--always up for a good discussion about writing and usually has awesome prompts and/or writing tips!)
(and finally) StorytellerGirl (storytellergirlgrace's blog--I love her blog! Her posts are also very in depth and I find myself constantly starring them on my Feedly. She's also a great critique partner! I'm always excited when I get my work back from her because I know she'll have great advice for me.)
What are your favorite blogs? I'm always up for suggestions! :D

30 Days of Gratitude--Day 4
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
