Fabulous Blogs

Valse Du Beau/Waltz of the Beautiful by Cody Smith Photos

In a local paper yesterday psychologist Dr Janet Hall welcomed the continuing popularity of light entertainment, saying that people felt happier if they embraced feel-good entertainment. You should expose your mind to whatever is beautiful, noble, right, pure and admirable, and anything that’s excellent or praise-worthy. She warned about the possibility of depression from constant exposure to apocalyptic and terror-filled TV shows and movies.

Yes, words like beautiful, noble, right etc are subjective. Sometimes too the English language is limiting. When it comes to blogs, the ones I follow often do it for me. They’re filled with my kind of beauty - not just material things but beauty in ideas, in observations. There’s humour, honesty and a feeling of connectedness. When I leave a comment I know that it will matter to the blogger. I’d love to hear about a blog or two that does it for you, where a visit leaves you feeling better than you did before.

Hi Chrisy, thanks for your comment, i agree my bf really should try another type of dancing, swing dancing might be fun, or maybe I should buy a learn to dance DVD :)
One blog I visit which is always bright, cheerful and has such sweet words that leaves me feeling more happy than before I arrived is Bluebird Notes http://bluebirdnotes.blogspot.com/
Im sure you would think the same :)

I think i need more light entertainment too then..
The connectedness and humor and ideas are important, u said that very nicely!
I guess its all about personality and uhm, being able to put it into words.

I like Del's blog
http://deliciousdesignz.blogspot.com/
She is nice and she has the craziest teapots! Also, she always comments on my blog posts which is pretty nice too!

Whatever you say to me always matters. I love to hear from you and when I even see your name I sometimes open it right away or leave it to open last knowing that it is like a present unwrapped.

I adore you Chrisy.

How are you feeling dear one?

Love Renee xoxo

I've been blogging for roughly about a year now and I can't tell you what it's done to my life - I had absolutely no idea it was this much fun and that I would meet some of the earth's most talented extraordinary people AND get to have small chats with them everyday! And guess what? Your blog for me is right up there as I'm sure it is for a lot a lot of people!!! My other fave blog would have to be Gabbi's : http://felinofelice.blogspot.com/ If you don't visit already - I highly recommend it - it is delightful!!!

Hey Harriet said...

I have to say Chrisy that your blog does it for me!!! Also Sam's suggestion of Gabbi's blog is a good one as it's one that I discovered a while ago and thoroughly enjoy. And of course Sam's blog is just beautiful!

Light- uplifting - inspiring ... . .
qualities so rare in todays' real world.
I also find connections with like-minded spirits to be rare. Our far flung bloglandia friends remind us that we are not alone in that which we value.
Hugs to you, my dear -
Jjjjj

I pull inspiration from a trove of blogs, spanning everything from gastronomy to home decor, wordless photo-blogs to personal journals that are almost entirely comprised of text. I think blogs are marvelous, when done earnestly and from the heart they become like scrapbooks of the soul.

Thank you dearly for your own fantastic blog and for sharing of your own heart, mind and soul with us, my friend.

Many hugs,
♥ Jessica

We all do need a little lightness and beauty for our hearts…
And sometimes it can be the simplest things.
Last Friday for me, it was a street entertainer of about 65 years old playing his
violin in the Boston public garden.
It was a beautiful song…I added my dollars to his jar and he gave me the most wonderful smile.
That song and smile carried me through the day.

I find the blog world to be a very encouraging and giving community and I visit many different blogs from art, to beautiful,
to just plain fun…
I am happy that I came across your blog just a few short months ago…
You have added a richness and support with each word you write,
and for this, I thank you…

Gabbi said...

I know exactly what you mean Chrisy and your blog very much does that for me and so does Sam's Matou en Peluche. It's a lovely way to decompress really.

Oh, oh, oh! I agreee! Surrounding oneself in lovely things makes for lovely thoughts. And, your comments mean the world to ME, I'll tell you that. Hope you're still recovering and feeling better!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

I so agree with you about reading blogs that add inspiration and good feeling into your life! You always leave me grinning ear to ear, thinking on some and being inspired by others. I'd say your blog pretty much captures the good feeling in one place!

Chrisy said...

oooh some newbies I'm looking forward to investigating here...and all the compliments about my blog well thank you so much...I truly didn't do this post for this reason...but it's still nice!

Allegra Smith said...

Hello Chrisy, thank you so much for the comforting words. Indeed, there is nothing in this world I appreciate more than a hug from a friend. One of my favorite quotes is "That's what I consider true generosity. You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing." Couldn't Simone de Beauvoir have said that about women friends? I believe she did.

elsiee said...

I thought about it and I thought about it and then it hit my YOURS! Your blog is the most inspiring! Inspiring while managing to be beautiful and entertaining and thought provoking - and I've been meaning to thank you for introducing me to Capucine - Muah!! Muah!!

I love this post. I agree wholeheartedly with your ideas about what makes a blog special. Especially like what you said about knowing that when you leave a comment it will matter. Perfect words.

Splendid Little Stars said...

There are certainly several and yours is among the very top. (truly) Your posts are a work of art in and of themselves. I leave feeling inspired, and inspiration is fulfillment. So I thank you.
There are some others that I always look forward to reading, but I will mention only 2:

I was looking for some info and was searching on Google for it. I visited each of the top 10 pages that came up but didn’t get any relevant result... I then luckily found your diamond message board in the dirt and thought to check it out. This is what I was looking for

Cheers peeps at sophismpress.blogspot.com and keep your good effort up.
