I think you should meet some! While this post is a bit long, I really do think each blog presented here is worth looking into.
Some wonderful writers:
The Whispering Writer. She cracks me up without fail. She is full of sarcasm and honest commentary that hits my funny bone each and every post.
Caroline. Her posts make life seem like a vacation. She stops to smell the roses and reminds her readers to do the same.
Micaela and her twin, Marz, are sweet lovable personable girls. With blog connections and give-aways to boot.
Carolyn shares her life on this blog and has a sister blog about her switch to a vegan lifestyle.
Annie writes about her life with chronic illnesses. She includes poetry that speaks from the soul. And she is the one to blame for my recent addiction to We Heart It images.
Lovely Little Nest is a sweet homemaker who talks about design - ooo la la...... eye candy is always on her blog.
Marta is a wonderful writer with all sorts of tips on blogging... plus she has regular give-aways. Oh my!
Will is just so thoughtful and thought provoking.
Some creative inspirations:

Aimee has fabulous art "doodles" that make every day seem bright and sunny.
Heather makes these wonderful characters that inspire old-timey values.
Katie makes me happy. I am always leaving her blog wanting to make my world more colorful. I also love the fact that she does art in public spaces to inspire others - even those not in her blog world.
Lee shares her art journal pages on an regular basis to inspire her readers to share their own work. Something I aspire to do someday soon... I'm just bad about scanning in my sketchbook.
