6 Creative Blogs You Need to Read

We all have our favourite blogs safely pinned to our reading list and whilst settling down to read our favourites is great, we can either seem to get stuck in a rut or too wrapped up in our own blogs; it's easy to forget about all the alternative, innovative blogs in the blogosphere.

So to break free from my reading habits I spent some time exploring other inspiring and creative blogs. After all, we need other blogs for inspiration for our own. From vintage DIY and paper love to crazy cupcake creations and the food blogger we all recognise as Deliciously Ella these are 6 blogs you need to add to your reading list.

CakeSpy Follow CakeSpy on Bloglovin'
The clue is in the clever name of this blog - Started by writer, illustrator and baker Jessie Oleson in 2007 CakeSpy claims to be a 'dessert detective agency' with a mission to 'seek sweetness in everyday life' by writing about bakeries, conducting baking experiments and picking the brains of bakers and food artists. It features some original and sweet ideas which are definitely worth checking out.

Design*Sponge Follow Design*Sponge on Bloglovin'
You may have already heard of Design*Sponge because it attracts over 1 million readers per day. And I can see why - Brooklyn based writer, Grace Bonney, began Design*Sponge in 2004 as a space to share her energy and excitement for design. Updated 3-5 times daily it continues this featuring everything design from interior and food & drink designs to design DIY's and tips for the business environment. But covering the story behind the designs is the blogs secret to success.

Deliciously Ella Follow Deliciously Ella on Bloglovin' 
The majority of us have heard of food blogger Deliciously Ella and even made some of her recipes but how many of us have actually read her blog? Deliciously Ella (real name Ella Woodward) has taken on a plant based diet following being diagnosed with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome and she formed her blog which celebrates what you can do with plant based ingredients. However, her blog is not just for sufferers of the illness and, many of her recipes can be adapted to suit each individual. Her raspberry & banana breakfast bars regularly get me through a long shift at work so check it out.

Pikaland: The Illustrated Life Follow Pikaland on Bloglovin'
One for aspiring artists and illustrators, Pikaland combines creativity, illustration and entrepreneurship. Pikaland, founded by Amy NG in 2008, advocates living the illustrated life and features a regularly updated collection of inspirations and creations produced by illustrators and artists. Follow Paper Crave on Bloglovin' 
Another blog which 'does what it says on the tin'. Author of PaperCrave, Kristen Magee, literally has a craving for all things paper; she declares "if it's made out of paper, then I'm interested" and she shares her paper obsession by featuring stationery, greetings cards, posters and art prints, paper crafts, papercuts, paper sculptures and paper art on her blog. Who knew a whole blog could be made around paper?! Fascinating.

RecipeGirl Follow RecipeGirl on Bloglovin' 
Lori Lange has been the go to girl for recipe trends and tasty food creations since 2006. Previously a school teacher she swapped the classroom for the kitchen and food fanatics all over the internet are glad she did. RecipeGirl is home to over 3,000 original and adapted recipes which cater for a variety of tastes, diets and occassions including seasonal snacks, party picks and vegan & gluten free ideas.
