    Thanks for sharing Sarah! I’m always looking for inspiring bloggers to add to my list. I’ve been reading more “small” bloggers lately, but some of the “bigger” ones I like are And Kathleen, The Fresh Exchange, an A House in the Hills.

    OMG. The Middle Finger Project. So much yes. I appreciate anyone who can dispense advice with all the swear words deserved by sometimes-magical-sometimes-pain-in-the-ass small business ownership.

    My top three blogs are, in no particular order, yours, And Kathleen and Braid Creative. I know Kathleen is half of Braid but they’re quite different blogs-albeit with the same authentic voice. MFP, Marie Forleo and The Symmetric are next in line. I’m all about straight talking ladies!

    I’m falling in love with your blog. Every. Single. Post. Is. Gold!

    I’ve decided to do a partial escape too (going back to school for what I love and leaving a 9-5 job). Your posts are inspiring and confirming that the choices I’ve made in going back to school are right for me.

    I’m also starting a blog (to talk about the transition from a job to grad school, international education (what I’m going to school for), and just travel in general), so your blog posts are seriously helpful! Signed up to hear more about the Badass Babes Blog Club — can’t wait!

    I’m also a big fan of Kate & Marie. Others that I like to read are Mark and Angel Hack Life, Terri Cole and Zen Habits.
    Thanks for the awesome blog, Sarah! :)
