I realized I follow people on Instagram and Pinterest or I subscribe to their blogs for a few different reasons. Usually because they offer beautiful things to look at, things I can relate too, things that are helpful or things that make me smile/laugh — generally the people I follow on many accounts (or stalk, whatever you wanna call it) are people I find inspiring in some shape or form. So in an effort to bring more beautiful and inspiring things to your day I wanted to share some of the people I either follow on the internet cause I really dig them, or people I met via the internet cause I really dug them.
If I included people who inspire me that I know in “real life and met in real life” this list would be really long and I also wouldn’t be able to link to many of them (since many of them aren’t on the internet) so you wouldn’t be able to get just as inspired. And that wouldn’t be quite as fun. Well for you, it would be pretty fun for me.
Since I am a bit of a cliché and my niche of likes, skills and interests is a bit vast and spread out these 4 inspiring people pretty spread out in how they inspire me. So there should be at least one (probably all) that resonates with you.
Andrea Duclos from OhDearDrea
I had always loved her blog, her honesty and colorful point of view on life. And then Drea quickly became my favorite person on the internet, because she talks about the things no one else does and in such an honest real life way. When we became, talking everyday friends I realized even more just what a truly fantastic person she really is. Her blog and her IG are my favorite, relate-able, authentic and honest and just freaking beautiful.
Mariah Coz from femtrpreneur.co
She runs/writes the uber helpful site femtrepreneur.co, where she offers her expertise to help female entrepreneurs become badass bosses. Her advice is pretty much always bang on (and super helpful), it’s honest and relate-able and she is just a joy to follow.
Alyssa from mini mioche
I e-met Alyssa, 4 (or so) years ago when she found my blog on the internet. It took me forever to meet her in real life, but boy am I glad I did. And not just because I have had the chance to work with her on some really fantastic projects — those are just icing. She has business drive and ambition is incredible, her focus to get to her end goals is, (have I said the word enough yet?) inspiring. Not to mention her creativity in how she approaches every aspect of her business, incredibly inspiring (there it is again!) to be around and follow.
Stephanie Birch from @stephynow
She is one of the only yoga-gramers I follow on IG. She has a way of grabbing attention with her stunning poses and then holding you there with her truthful and inspiring words. I appreciate so much that her account is not just about the physical poses it dives much deeper, which is hard to do since all you see is a visual.
Who are the people on the internet who inspire you? Do you follow any of these people already? Would you like me to share more posts like this in the future?
