One That Covers It All

Ever now and then, I come across a blog that covers a wide variety of topics. That’s exactly what the blog The Pioneer Woman does.

Ree Drummond, The Pioneer WomanYou may know that The Pioneer Woman, aka Ree Drummond, has her own cooking show on Food Network known as The Pioneer Woman. She got a show on Food Network because of her blog, which has won numerous awards, and her best-selling cookbook. However, I discovered her on Food Network because I have a mild (more like huge) obsession with Food Network shows. I really don’t know why…

Later, I discovered her blog and man, oh, man does she do a great job blogging! She lives in the middle of nowhere on a cattle ranch with her husband and four kids. One might wonder how she has so much to blog about then. Well, I’m assuming living in the middle of no where with four kids forces one to come up with interesting stuff to do.

Her blog has a number of sections making it easy to search through this wide-ranging blog. The Confessions section includes photos and stories of her husband and children and the animals on the farm.

The Cooking section includes step-by-step photos of all the cowboy-friendly dishes she taught herself to cook through the years. There’s butter involved.

In the Home & Garden section, Ree shows the step-by-step saga of a start-to-finish remodeling project of an old guest house on the ranch, as well as general home tips and photos of things she loves.

And in the Homeschooling section, she discuss the adventure of homeschooling four children on an isolated cattle ranch, hold regular “Smartypants” trivia quizzes so readers can test their brain matter, and share Words of the Day, interesting trivia, and occasional brainteasers.

There is so much on this blog. So many great recipes, so many amazing photographs, great stories, and more.

Revisit

Today, I am revisiting a blog I posted about months ago and for good reason. This week marks the first week of my last semester of college, so I thought it would be appropriate to revisit one of my favorite blogs: The College Prepster.

The College Prepster TCP

Even though the author Carly graduated college last May, she still blogs about college-related things. Just recently, Carly posted about study tips and back to school clothes. While I love looking at her blog for other reasons, I think it’s great she still sticks to the roots of her blog and writes on topics that many of her readers relate to.

She has a list of INTENSE STUDY TIPS, a lot of organizing tips to keep you focused on studying and so you don’t forget dates or deadlines, and a list of Apps that are helpful for school.

Since Carly graduated over a year ago and has had a job working in NYC for exactly one year, she does not post much about college or give school advice as much. However, I love the things she posts about. She’s been talking a lot more about fashion and clothing and about what she does in NYC.

Carly posts a lot about work, which is great for me since I am hoping to have a job come December after I graduate. She gives advice on stuff ranging from what Shoes to wear for interviews and jobs to a list of apps that show all How to Feel Like an Adult.

I definitely see myself using the advice she gives (and she gives a lot on all sorts of topics) in my future.
