  1. Great question - but a difficult one! I think my favourite UK blog is

    I really like Sally's writing, her honest and fun posts and the fact that she's into writing letters!

  2. I love – where designers submit (anonymously) their nightmare client stories. I've only been tempted to submit my own story a couple of times, but it's comforting to know that others go through the same occasional frustrations. Plus, I just find it really funny.

  3. For those creatives interested in logos and identities, this is a pretty good blog.

    It's kept up-to-date regularly, it's informative and has lots of interesting articles on logo design and current design issues.

    Of course, I have my own blog too which is worth a mention if I'm allowed to recommend two!

  4. I love Attic 24 - - loads of creative inspiration, free shared content and beautiful photography. Her ethos seems to be about appreciating the little things in life, which I think is something we all need to remember.

    And like the poster above me, I'd like to mention my own site here if I may!

  5. My favourite US blog is It's written by two sisters who blog daily. It simply has everything - fantastic layout & informative, fun posts (diy, blogger support, fashion, lifestyle).

  6. There are SO many inspirational artistic bloggers out there, it makes it very difficult to choose. My very favourite american bloggers whose work I love are Dina Wakley and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer but I also follow and enjoy several (hundred!) British arty bloggers. To start with I shall say (Rosie's Arty stuff), I can identify with so much of what she says in her journals. She has great humour and is very artistically talented.

  7. I love Ali Edwards for great ideas on capturing stories and images of our own everyday lives

  8. I love - I've been reading it for some time now probably because its updated daily, written so well ad has a great sense of fun which you don't get in a lot of the more traditional media, even online.


    Great blog from Gretel with snippets from her life and creative processes. A down to earth and very readable blog! ;-)

  10. ...and then there is my blog of course:
    Stop by and say hi!


    It's fun and interesting! And needs subbies!

  12. I love for its varied interesting content, for its honesty and taste for adventure. (Some content may not be considered PC today, but just look beyond that and let the many good parts shine through.) It's also a nice space to go spend a few minutes away from work. :)

  13. ooh lots of great blogs being recommended here - thank you Anke, Lisa, Jinny, Kris, Gail, Hannahk, qwiksave and Laura... I will check them all out! Still a few days to enter the giveaway, don't forget to use the Share buttons to tweet or recommend this post on Facebook, Google+ etc!
    Just one thing though - best if you don't post as 'anonymous' - we're all friendly here, so go ahead and tell us who you are! thanks x
