"Retired" Bloggers: Who Do You Miss?

Don't be SHELLFISH... Share! ‪#‎lilly5x5‬:

I was driving around yesterday thinking about a blogger I used to follow, wondering what was new in her life. Luckily, she and I can keep up via Facebook, so I can get my answer pretty easily. But what about all of the others I used to follow? I would check into their blogs daily -- before fancy blogreaders, before Instagram (!!!), before Snapchat. I felt invested in their lives and (selfishly) a little gypped when they stopped blogging about their day-to-day adventures. Of course I respected their decision to stop blogging, but I missed them!

SOOOO...
I had an idea. I'd love to reach out to a few "retired" bloggers to see if they would do a little life update post here for me and all of you. I thought it would be fun for all of us ... and for them, too! So, hit me up with who you'd love to hear from. What bloggers do you miss? Let me see what kind of strings I can pull!

  1. Beautiful Mess- Steph Howard!! She blogged up until she had her little girl and I was so waiting on that birth story/baby update. Thankfully I follow through other social media but I sure miss her humor.

  10. I read a blog called "Misadventures of a Newlywed" back when I first discovered blogs. Must have been around 2009 or 2010. She lived in Atlanta with her husband and pugs. She was super funny! At some point she stopped blogging to go to grad school. She blogged about trying to conceive and I always wonder if she ever had a baby.

  65. Clemson girl :) Love following her on social media, but miss her blog. Also Blair's Headband and Grits.

  66. Super late on this, but adding my 2 cents! Blair's Headband, Beantown Prep, Summer is a Verb. I miss the JGIWC days too. I know she rebranded her blog but it's not the same.
