    oh man I subscribe to a bunch. There are ones I read harder than others though. I have a system. I check these first out of habit mostly:

    all things bright and beautiful, beach bungalow 8, creature comforts, desire to inspire, more ways to waste time, decorno, urban grace interiors, sfgirlbybay,old glutton and sanctuary

    I subscribe:
    surroundings, absolutley beautiful things, all the best, aphrochic, bloesem, brilliant asylum, cote de texas, craving anthropologie, design for mankind, etsy-love, habitually chic, fresh vintage, happy cavalier, hidden in france, indie fixx, making it lovely, may december home, perfect bound, poppytalk, print and pattern, the pickled hutch, the style files, vain and vapid, this is glamorous, the peak of chic

    It’s actually very doable in a reader. I don’t feel right unless I absorb a ton of media. I also read three San Francisco city papers online as well.

    Grain Edit, Creature Comforts, D*S, Print & Pattern, Decor8 and SFgirlbybay are my daily haunts. I also really enjoy reading individual artists blogs too when I have the time, so much wonderful work out there to keep one motivated and inspired. :)

    I use a reader too, I don’t know how I managed before! Among others, some stand-out ones for me are the various NotCots, Fitacola, we made this, AceJet 170 and the lovely lovely Notes by Naive.

    And I know this is going to sound like shameless self promotion (so apologies because it’s not!) but I find keeping a blog really inspiring too – part of the reason I started is because I see so much amazing stuff on the ton of blogs I read, it’s so easy to forget the best bits. So if I’m feeling in need of some inspiration sharpish, I have a look through my archives. It acts as a kind of filter, because I’m essentially lazy, so I’ll only make the effort post something if I really love it.
