10 Blogs Outside of the Fitness/Foodie World I Read Often

Hello hello! Happy Monday! Getting a bit of a late start to the blog world today, so an evening post is coming your way!

We had a wonderful weekend at home, complete with organizing, cleaning, and catching up on a few shows. OH, and we both felt baby girl kick! Adam’s reaction was a little along these lines…

Things are getting exciting around here, but more on that later!

Tonight I wanted to chat about some blogs I often find myself reading that are actually outside the realm of fitness or food. It’s always nice to get out of the “healthy living” blogosphere every now and then, and these are a few of my go-to’s for work, fun, education, money, and just plain guilty pleasure! I won’t mention BuzzFeed, because duh, who doesn’t read BuzzFeed on the reg?

Bark Post

This is actually the company blog for BarkBox, which we have yet to try, although I know Truckee would absolutely love it! They do a great job of keeping the blog full of all things DOG.


Search Engine Journal

This is a blog I reference and use for work a lot, just to stay updated on the latest industry news.

Search Engine Land

Same with SEJ above, this is a tool I am often using to keep up with any recent changes in the world of SEO.

Scary Mommy

No words for this blog. It is too funny, and I’m sure once I’m a full-fledged mom I will think it is even funnier!

Oklahoma City Moms Blog

The Moms Blog network has city blogs all over the country, and one of my sister in laws actually contributes to this one in OKC. Another sister in law writes for the Ft. Worth one!

Get Rich Slowly

Get Rich Slowly is chock full of very, very, very helpful information! Adam and I both read it pretty regularly.

Mr. Money Mustache

This is a blog Adam actually reads more than I do, but it was worth mentioning. Excuse the minor curse word in the logo, sorry!

Shanty 2 Chic

For days when I want to DIY my entire house, this blog hits the spot. It has tons of super cute tutorials and projects!

The Londoner

This is one of the very first blogs I started actually “following”. Her name is Rosie, and her life is seriously a dream. I love reading her posts and living vicariously through her adventures.

Lifehacker is a great blog for random tips and tricks. It’s a good one, trust me!

    Great post – I was just thinking that I need some more blogs to follow outside the health genre. I just checked out Shanty 2 Chic and everything looks amazing!

    Yay you both felt her kick! That’s so fun. Doesn’t it just bring a smile to your face?! I remember the first few days she kicked, I had to really be paying attention. Now she kicks all the time. Just wait!

      Ahh I can’t wait for it to be super strong! It’s still pretty randomly, but I think I’m much more aware of it now, and after we both felt her legitimately kick on Saturday I know it’s her!

        Exercise, together with a healthy calcium intake, builds strong bones. Weight-bearing exercises, like running, walking and weight-lifting, help lower your odds of getting osteoporosis as you grow older, according to experts.Ideally, you should start when you’re young, but it’s never too late to pick up the habit. Even a brisk walk can help, say metabolic disease specialists.
