I do keep a blogroll of my favorites, my absolute "I can't miss a post" type of blogs. There are also about 100 on my Feedly. The reason I prefer to read blogs over any other type of medium is I feel a connection, like I personally know the blogger (which I don't). I have been fortunate to meet a few of the fashion bloggers in real life.
Stay with me readers, I so enjoy blogging, just going through a #socialmediashutdown right now.
