I think our blogging effort is coming along quite nicely. (Hope you agree!) One of the fun parts of a blog is being part of an active online community. We’ve been able to do that for some time now, through our Amoena and TheBreastCareSite.com Discussion Forums, and of course, the Goliath that is Facebook.
But we want to know: Who are some of the best breast cancer bloggers out there? Where do you go for your daily dose of intelligent, intriguing or just plain hysterical conversation? What about health blogs, fashion blogs, recipe blogs… do you read any? Here are a few that we like:
- Meg Wolff is a renowned cook and author, who serves up macrobiotic recipes (that look delicious and helped her heal from cancer) as well as other health info on her blog, Becoming Whole. She also writes for the Healthy Living section at the Huffington Post.
- We’ve been following Ellyn Davidson’s Life after Breast Cancer for a couple of years. She’s a fighter, a public speaker, a serious activist, and the definition of a thriver!
- For gorgeous prose, funny anecdotes and thought-provoking wisdom from a survivor and author, try out Sue Glader’s “Poking Around Life.”
- Dance With the Reaper includes “essays on life after cancer.” The writer’s style is no-nonsense and bold. She’s a mom, a woman with a sense of humor… and someone who also had cancer.
- Of course, Living Beyond Breast Cancer is one of the great resources for women with questions, and their blog is currently providing a year-long series of survivor stories in honor of their 20th anniversary.
- Our friend, Carole Sanek, writes not one, but two inspiring blogs: I Survived Damn Near Everything, and After Breast Cancer Reviving Surviving Thriving. She’s learned a lot and shares her whole self, helping others who might be struggling.
- When you want to embrace and return to simplicity, visit The Simple Minded Suburbanite. The author isn’t a survivor of cancer, but of the hectic pace of daily living, and she’s one of our faithful Amoena Life magazine contributors. You’ll love her spunk and zen (yes, she has both!).
We’d love to get your recommendations on great reads. Let’s build our community — let’s share, and comment, and learn together. (Oh, and feel free to plug your own blog in the comments! Personal blogs, food blogs, bra blogs, mommy blogs, Amoena retailers — everyone’s welcome here!)
