Hello, again! I’ve decided to continue presenting topics in groups of five. Why five? Because I like that number more than four, that’s why! 🙂 Today’s topic is that of informative or spiritually uplifting blogs. Please note that I am not presenting the blogs in any particular order. Suffice to say that each of the following is special in its own way, so please read, click, and take in the many flavors of creativity.
So, what does a new father do now that he has a child? Blog about it, of course! Tyler, the Dad in “Days of the Dad” faces personal challenges and the greater challenge to be the best father he can be. He focuses on life within a loving and supportive family unit while dispensing numerous childcare tips and providing links to many helpful resources. Though life poses obstacles he must face as an individual and as a father, he does so by projecting limitless positivity and sheer determination to the extent that both seem to leap off the screen. Please check out his blog if you haven’t done so already.
Written by a woman named Tiffany, Ethereal Empathy is one of the most uplifting and thoroughly peaceful reads imaginable. Tiffany is a fountain of positivity, and she posts about spirituality, health, peace-of-mind, and much, much more. She began her drive to relay her energizing nature through her blog long before the dark days of COVID-19 came upon us. Her deep thoughts and motivational spirit are very welcome constants in our ever-changing world.
For many, the diagnosis of a child with autism is the official beginning of a life of challenges undreamt of by most families. However, instead of focusing on any negative facets that could accompany life with a family member with autism, Adam, the “Dad” in Dad Does Autism, focuses on life within a strong family that bucks the odds by refusing to be anything other than normal. Does he speak about the challenges they face? Yes, of course, but he does so while offering advice, resources, and most of all, encouragement.
This may appear to be a strange entry to include given the nature of the other blogs I included, but hear me out. This blog is about mental health, physical well-being, and feeling wanted in a world that makes almost everyone feel unwanted at one point or another. This blog is not a cheerleader with pom-poms. Instead, it is like an honest talk with a good friend, albeit one who went through the wringer and fought to reclaim their sense of self. In truth, I don’t know if the extremely skilled writer of Unwanted Life is male, female, or totally non-binary. And you know what? It does not matter. The details behind the author certainly didn’t matter to Feedspot, which named Unwanted Life as one of its Top 15 UK Mental Health Blog, Websites & Influencers in 2020.
This is the massively popular Kayleigh Zara’s eponymous blog. Massively popular? you might ask. Well, over two million hits a month can’t be wrong. Just ask my kids! This Ph.D. candidate from the UK blogs about positivity, food, fashion, design, beauty, and ways to drive internet traffic. I admit that my focus is more on her food and traffic-building entries. However, finding such interesting content on her blog shows that Kayleigh Zara truly has something for everyone.
And that’s it for this edition of On My Mind Today. I hope you found the above blogs as interesting as I do. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
All the best,
