This is by no means an exhaustive list and I will be adding to it, but for now, these are some of the Canadian family friendly bloggers you should know about.
First off, there’s me. Ha! Of course you’re already on my blog Creative Cynchronicity and I hope you’ve had a chance to look around and get to know me a bit (I’m Cyn – nice to meet you!) but I also would like to introduce you to my other blog Gagen Girls. It’s still a fledgling blog but there’s some great content there too (if I do say so myself). It’s a mother-daughter blog with my daughter and we share posts from our own unique perspectives as empty nester and newlywed.
Shash from Shasher’s Life – “Personal Blog of a Cool Mom of 4, Married to the Preacher Man, but at times I’m a little more Sass than Saint!!” – personally, I love how Shash keeps it real on her blog. Every post is genuine and from the heart (and she has a HUGE heart).
Kristen from My 3 Little Kittens – “My 3 Little Kittens is filled with Giveaways, Product Reviews, Recipes, Coupons and More!” – Kristen is not only one of the sweetest people I know but her recipes make me drool every single time.
Brandi from Yee Wittle Things – “Family Friendly Reviews, Giveaways, Recipes, and More” – Brandi is another Canadian blogger who just makes you feel like you’re at home, visiting with a neighbour. Check out Brandi’s recipes too – YUM!
Sandi from Canadian Blog House – “You will find me engaging in the community, striving to bring you the best of what I find on the internet, and bringing you many exciting opportunities to win prizes.” – Sandi sums it up right there….”engaging in the community”.She cares about her readers and has built a loving community with them.
Sherrie from Good Karma Baby! – “I’m a Lifestyle Blogger sharing my #GuthrieFamilyAdventures in Food, Travel and Life experiences with the world. I craft posts about being an Educator, Farm Owner, Hockey Player, Runner, Wanna Be Foodie and the conflicts that arise when I attempt to be all of these things at one time.” – Sherrie and I first connected over our backgrounds in the education profession, but her warmth and authenticity oozing out of everything she says on her blog and social media channels is what kept me coming back.
Joann from Woman in Real Life – “I hope that you will grab a cup of tea and a sweet and join me to explore ideas about cooking, baking, parenting, thrift shopping, poetry, decorating, books, exercise and whatever else we come across “in real life.”” – Do it. Grab that cup of tea and a sweet and sit down with Joann for a while. You won’t regret it.
Christine from Life on Manitoulin – “City girl moves to the country, falls in love, and marries a farmer. She tries to incorporate her city ways with her new country lifestyle and blogs to keep in touch with friends, family & students who live far, far away 🙂 Can this city girl go country? Watch as she learns all sorts of exciting things about life on the farm and in a small rural community.” – Ok, now Christine is pretty darn amazing and shares beautiful heartfelt and inspiring content but really, the big draw is her little one. That kid knocks my socks off!
Alex from North Story – “My Nikon is surgically attached to my hand and I needed a place to put the photos. We live in a little McHome in the suburbs in Canada that we are trying to fix up while dreaming of living in a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere.” – There is something about Alex’s blog that just makes me exhale a big sigh of relief. It’s just so clean and pretty and there are images that make my heart pitter patter from the simplicity of them.
Lala from Lala’s World – “I am a mom to 4 girls and a brand new baby son at the young age of 40!!, I have found love and healing on the road to Who I am! I am a wife to the best man I have ever met and together we are raising these teen girls and our new son!! Life is NEVER dull and I have learned to never say never!” – Another blog that is new to me, I’ve found Lala to be delightfully open and honest, sharing her feelings on such topics as divorce, raising both teenagers and a newborn at the age of 40, body image, and more.
Regina from Leelalicious – “I LOVE delicious food! But I want it to be nutritious as well. I hope you enjoy my balanced, real-food recipes.” – Ohhhh my! Regina has recipes that are to die for. Yummy yummy desserts is what I first knew her for but her savoury recipes look just as amazing. If you love good food, you must check out Leelalicious.
Julie from SoberJulie – Oh how I love Julie. As Julie says, “After facing her alcoholism and being involved in a car accident Julie began writing at SoberJulie where you’ll find that this funky blogger takes the tired, unappetizing reputation about sobriety and turns it into a day at the circus.” That is the perfect way to describe it! Julie’s blog is fun – lots of great ideas for recipes, mocktails, travel and more but one thing that really stands out is her willingness to be vulnerable and share even the difficult parts of her journey through life with her readers.
Ok, this list should get you started. More to come! Be sure to leave your suggestions in the comments below for the next list.
