I was recently asked to list 5 blogger who I thought were fabulous. The first thing that came to mind was, “Only 5?” I could easily name a dozen off the top of my head. However, rules are rules so my apologies to all you other fabulous bloggers out there . . . you know who you are. ;-)

What what qualifies as a Fabulous Blogger in my book? There are so many variables to consider that do not include blog stats or Twitter followers. To me, a Fabulous Blogger is someone who will stick by your side through thick and thin, someone who’s there when you need to rant or will cheer for you when something great happens.

Here are my 5 Fabulous Blogging friends (in no particular order):

PhotobucketSimply Cathi – Cathi was one of the very first bloggers that I had the pleasure of meeting in person. She is a mother to 3, grandmother to 3 and a Disney fanatic. What I like the most about Cathi is her ability to take the unfortunate events that life has dealt to her and still get up every morning with positive attitude. It shows in her writing and it shows on her face . . . she is a survivor.

ice boxThe Ice Box – Desert Songbird is one of my very first blogging friend. And even though I haven’t been visiting her as much as I’d like to she has never stop commenting on my site. Now that’s loyalty! She’s been there for me when I couldn’t pay people to visit An Island Life and has always offered her honest opinions and advice. She definitely keeps me real.

kaylaThe Eclectic Element – Kayla is another very loyal blogging friend. I haven’t known her as long as some of my other blogging friends but I feel she’s someone who I could definitely count on. She’s living with a condition called Lyme Disease yet she’s always so happy and positive. She’s also a frequent commentor and I know she’ll always have something to say even on some of my most boring posts. She’s someone a truly hope to meet in person one day.

Welcome to Married LifeWelcome to Married Life – I’m not sure how I initially met Krista online but she’s been a blogging friend for as long as I can remember. What I really like about Krista is her honesty. If she has an opinion about something she’s not afraid to say it. She’s very true to herself and I always know where I stand with her. Having a friend who will tell you like it is without being insulting is a very rare thing.

Thanks, Mail Carrier – I was also able to meet Xenia in person at BlogHer10 where we were Energizer Smart ChargeHers together. We were able to hang out a little together and even got our toenails done. I tell you, once you bond over pedicures you’re friends for life. What I like the most about Xenia is her sense of humor. She can take an everyday product and write such a great review that even if you had no interest in the item beforehand you can’t help but want to read more.

So there you have it, 5 Fabulous Bloggers. Stop by their sites and check out all of the wonderful things they have to offer. Each one is very different from the other yet fabulous in her own way.

Don’t forget to enter the 50 Fabulous Wishes contest for a chance to win $1,000 to support a friend’s wish. I was selected for this Tropicana Trop50 sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. I received compensation to use and facilitate my post.

    Awww… you’ve completely made my day, Kailani! You’re definitely in my top 5 of bloggers and I’ve thought you were awesome long before all of the fun things that we’ve worked on together and getting to hang out all around NY and get pedicures (definitely a highlight of BlogHer for me)! If you didn’t live so darn far away, I’d be bringing my girls over to play with yours every week… but for now I’ll just keep admiring you through the internet and say thank you for being such a wonderful person!

    I’m………… shock. And that’s putting it mildly. Wow. I never expected that you would say something so special about me. I have been a very negligent blog writer of late, and I never enter any of your contests. I love reading about your adventures, though, and I adore your daughters. They are so precious. Thank you so much for the kind words; I will endeavor to live up to those remarkably high standards you set!

    Thanks for being so sweet! I really do want to be honest, yet nice! :)
    I think I met you by visiting your blog while you were doing the weekly round-up at 5 Minutes for Mom! So, it’s been awhile!

    I agree with everything Blueviolet said, you picked great ladies (Kayla is one of my best buddies, too) and I love seeing your dry skin adventures, also!
    I don’t think I could pick just 5 fabulous bloggers either. You did a wonderful job. :)
