Stop & Chat Saturday


Stop & Chat is a weekly discussion post here at Read. Sleep. Repeat. where we talk about what ever tickles my fancy!

This week’s topic is:

Blogger Crushes!

Today’s Stop & Chat was inspired by Renae of Respiring Thoughts! And for that I want to say: THANK YOU!!! from a fellow creeper. 😉

So let me get into this potentially embarrassing and lengthy post!

When I first started blogging, I like everyone else, had those blogs that I completely idolized. I’m talking a “Hey Arnold” type shrine in the back of my closet kind of idolized. And I’m not ashamed to say that at first it was because they were so big. They were like those creepy mega-churches you see on t.v. all the time, and I wanted to be a member! But as time went on and I started learning the ropes, the number of bloggers I stalked lowered and the names changed. I even started stalking them for real reasons! Who would have thought?! And today, thanks to a tweet that Renae did a few weeks back, I’m going to showcase the blogs that I still stalk (unknowingly to them!) and hope that I don’t get a few restraining orders in the mail.


Xpresso Reads

So I’ve never met Giselle and I think I’ve tweeted her like 5 times but she was the first “super mega blog” I found and began to stalk. Her reviews are awesome and her tweets are hilarious. But best of all she seems like a total sweetheart. 🙂




Reading After Midnight So umm, this is the blog that made me start Read. Sleep. Repeat. Not only is her blog like ridiculously pretty, her reviews always make me smile. She even has a super cool motto that I’ve repeated to myself with ever blog post I do: “this blog is my happy place

The dynamic duo known as Steph & Kat….ummm so to put things into perspective Steph tweeted me one day and I may or may not have wet myself a little bit from excitement…and a little of my Pepsi may or may not have came out of my nose. Beside their amazing reviews, Buzz Worthy New post, and kick ass interviews they are thoughtful. A few of the blogs I use to stalk fell off my radar because I felt like maybe, just maybe, they had forgotten that once upon a time they were smaller blogs too! I’d send a tweet or email with a question and would be totally ignored! But this dynamic duo (in my opinion) is so not like that! Their Little Blogger Big Ambitions project is the proof of that puddin’ and I can’t say how much that means to someone who has been given the cold shoulder by a blog I’ve looked up to.



I want you all to know that I did this post not because I want these blogs attention, but because I know how hard it is to go up to your blog idols and say “Hey, I think your awesome”. So I figure if I can do it, then maybe some of you can too? Share what blogs your stalking or just think is awesome below!

  1. Love Xpresso Reads, I don’t know how Giselle does so much, girl is seriously wonder woman. Just discovered Cuddlebuggery a couple of days ago, but loving it so far, their reviews are soooo funny. Will have to check out the second one.

  2. Isn’t she?! I can barely keep up with Read. Sleep. Repeat. and she keeps up with her book blog, design blog AND tour blog?! I bow down to that kind of productivity. 🙂

  3. I remember that before I started blogging, I discovered lots of book bloggers and would spend hours staring at their blog design, and envying how many books they got to read. I couldn;t help bt be in awe at how amazing these people seem. Now that I have my own blog, I’m still pretty much in awe at all those huge bloggers who have their own domains and sooo many followers, but the best part in the blogging commuinity. I love reading the comments I get from fellow bloggers, and laughing so much over twitter. It makes me so glad that I made my own blog.

  4. Well you know the saying…..the book blogger community is the best community. 🙂 There is nothing like siting back with other bloggers who completely get where you’re coming from.

  5. Thanks so much, muffin! You definitely tweeted me more than 5 times (proven by the fact that I know you by just your profile pic and I have the worst memory! :P). You should totes go to BEA next year so we can hang out in signing lines! (Which is the best part of BEA, duh! 🙂 I heart your blog and your awesome personality! <3

  6. well aww shucks! Don’t you know how to make a girl feel special?! And believe me I’m going to BEA next year even if I have to start pawning off limbs and internal organs. 🙂

  7. It feels good to think that I can inspire people in a way, even though blogging for me still feel like in the beginning – I am still unsure where I’m going, but I am enjoying the ride :))

    I can’t imagine a world without my happy place and I am sure you will have tons of fun with yours 🙂 I just wish I could have more free time to connect with all my book friends more often, but reading messages like yours make me so happy. Thanks, honey!
