Canadian Bloggers to Follow on Pinterest
A few months ago I put together a collaborative board on Pinterest to bring together great Canadian Blogs to Follow. It was such a big hit that I have added more then 70 Canadian bloggers to the list of collaborators. I am encouraging you to visit some of these blogs so you too can enjoy F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C. Canadian Content. I will be covering the blogs throughout this year.
What does this mean for you my loyal readers? It means that I can bring you a sampling of some fantastic bloggers that live, work and bring up their families in Canada. Don’t be mistaken to think that all we talk about is poutine and hockey. These men and women blogger write about parenting, social causes, travel, food, technology, social media, sports, illness, the sandwich generation, medical issues, humour, beauty and fashion. Whatever you want to read about, there is a blog to fill your thirst for knowledge. Here is the list of some of my favourite Canadian Blogs to Follow:
I get a kick out of reading Mommy Moments written by Jody Arsenault. I met Jody at a workshop at Blissdom Canada this year and she gave me great hope of being a bigger, better, professional blogger. I love reading her blog about her life in Manitoba. You have to love one of the most popular posts for her this year: High Heel Cupcakes. This is great for little girls, a fun night out with your girlfriends or just hanging out with your book club. How cute are these cupcakes?
Blogger write about the good and the bad of life. This is a humour look at what its like to have a brand new puppy to take care of? Well Sandi Allen at Canadian Blog House will be happy to tell you what WILL happen when you get THAT bundle of joy!
Do you want to read one of the best craft and lifestyle bloggers in my humble opinion? This blogger hails from Edmonton, Alberta and is very, very talented – Head on over to Echoes of Laughter where Angie Long Pitre will teach you all about crafts, DIY and organizing projects. She will show you how to organize your fridge. To say the least this has to be one of my favourite posts (being a professional organizer and all).
If you combine crafting and organizing, you will likely love It’s Just my Life. Did you want to know how to organize your Rainbow Loom? I have the perfect post for you by fellow Londoner @AnnieCannie. To say this post is after my own heart is an understatement. I was able to spend more time with Annie this year at Blissdom, We Day in Kitchener/Waterloo and at the Red Cross CPR class. She has got to be one of the most caring bloggers I have ever met!
Many, many blogs have 10 ten lists but this has to be one of the best for families that want to Do Disney World – RIGHT. You need to read Jenna’s Living High on the Hog Blog for the essentials to have a great Disney experience. Super helpful. She also has some pretty inspiring blog post about her 70lbs weight loss. Truly amazing!
Another fun post was to read about Claudia Brietzke’s quest to compete in her first body building competition. She blogs at BeneFIT with Claudia. She is new to me but an interesting blog to read.I don’t know if I would have the courage to post the ‘before’ pictures but the ‘after’ ones really show her dedication to getting into competition shape.
Maybe you just want to do a ‘small’ project and create a beautiful headboard from recycled shutters. If you did, you could follow the step-by-step directions provide by Christine Cook from Quebec. Her lovely blog DIYDreamer is one of my new favourites. Make sure to click around the blog to see her awesome projects. She makes it looks so easy… and lovely!
You could take on a larger project. You may want to work on your house and you need creative ideas on how to renovate a foyer like Stephanie from How to Survive Life in the Suburbs (another fun and generous London blogger friend).
Maybe you are looking for a unique recipe. There are plenty of interesting recipes to be found on blogs. Here is a yummy one for Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes. You can take a look at Olivia’s BC based blog – This West Coast Mommy. She is new to me but I love anything from the West Coast!
Canadian bloggers open themselves up, introduce you to their families and their lives. I loved the series of blog post on Paula Schuck’s Thrifitymomma’s tips about dealing with infertility in Canada. There are many, many stories to read about this very important issue in our society. Here is just one of them: Infertility is Not a Choice
If you wanted to read about parenting and having tough days, you can certainly drop by Shayna’s blog: Mommy Outside the Box. Just another heartfelt piece of life in a Canadian family. Its not all birthday parties & swim meets for us bloggers. We all have challenging days.
Many bloggers touch upon issues that are familiar to some but new to others. I love reading Canadian blogs that educate their readers. Dealing with Celiac disease is a blog topic that Jennifer from 1 Heart, 1Family is very knowledgeable about. You could learn something too so head over and have a read.
Do you want to learn how to do a particular craft. You can do just about anything when you read about Cyn Gagen’s blog Creative Cyncronicity. Many bloggers also create some amazing vlog entries (that is video posts for those that are not familiar with that term). Watch her make use of a broken wreath form. Instructional videos are plentiful on Canadian blogs to follow.
Maybe you want to do some baking. I have another blog to suggest to you: Dawn from I am Addicted to Recipes said the recipe for homemade ‘cinnabun’ cinnamon bun cake was the most popular recipe on her blog this year. They look d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s – What do you think?
Did you know you could make pizza crust using beer? Yes, I said beer. If you want to know how Ashley makes this savoury pizza dough, then head over to Tales of Mommyhood. You won’t regret it. If you make it, tell me how it turns out.
I hope you have enjoyed these suggestions and that you take the time to do some reading of Great Canadian Blogs to Follow.
