20 Blogs to Follow ASAP

Of course, I’m of the opinion that you should be following For the Sake of Good Taste.  But it’s just one of the countless blogs that you seriously need to be following to get the most out of your internet life. Here’s a selection of some of the best blogs to follow (in my humble opinion).

Future Jules here!  It’s now November 2018 and I’m giving this post a quick makeover.  Some of these lovely bloggers have rebranded and a few are no long in the blogosphere, so I’m adjusting accordingly.  Even better?  I’m including even more amazing bloggers! 

A Little Ashley

Ashley recently graduated from Clemson University and is now getting her master’s in marketing research as well as blogging!  She describes her blog as being “about college tips, life advice, and other random ramblings.”
