INSIDE: I’m proud to announce that A Simple and Contented Life has been listed as one of the Top 100 Simple Living blogs to follow in 2018! Where did I rank? Which are the best simple living blogs to follow this year? I reveal all in this post.
This month A Simple and Contented Life celebrated its first blogiversary! I can hardly believe I’ve been blogging a year already! I might have occupied this little corner of the internet for a whole twelve months now but I’m still relatively new to the blogging world.
A little fish trying to make her way in a very big pond, I’m still learning the ropes and consider myself very much a baby compared to some of the bigger, more established bloggers I follow and admire so much.
And that’s why I was so excited to be featured in Feedspot’s list of Top 100 Simple Living Blogs and Websites to Follow in 2018. Listed alongside some pretty amazing bloggers, it’s a great honour to be in the company of so many others who are much further ahead in their journey of simpler living – and blogging – than me.

So where did I rank?
A Simple and Contented Life ranked #73 in the Top 100 Simple Living Blogs and Websites to Follow in 2018. I might be closer to 100 than first place, but that doesn’t matter to me. Being featured lets me know I’m doing something right. That I’m helping others to make family life less stressful and more enjoyable. And that gives this newbie blogger the encouragement to keep going.
Who else was featured?
To find that out you’ll need to head over to the list! What I can tell you though is some of my favourite simple living bloggers have been featured. And so, if you’re unsure of who to check out first, here’s who I recommend.
1 | Be More with Less
Courtney and her blog Be More with Less feature as #4 on the list of best simple living blogs and it’s not hard to see why. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2006, her blog shares how her diagnosis has impacted her life and the joy she’s discovered in living with less. Now, with the help of her book Soulful Simplicity and her Project 333 minimalist fashion challenge, she helps others to do the same. With more than 150k followers on Facebook alone, be sure to put Courtney at the top of your list.
2 | The Life on Purpose Movement
Erica’s blog The Life on Purpose Movement is all about living life with intention. Thirteenth of the top 100 simple living blogs for 2018, Erica believes that the relationship we have with ourselves sets the tone for every other relationship we have and I couldn’t agree more. With posts on motherhood, marriage, introversion, wholehearted living and much more, consider her your helping hand for stepping out of a life on autopilot and into one of purpose.
3 | I Dream of Simple
Number #67 of the best simple living blogs, Tara is a woman after my own heart. Her blog I Dream of Simple is packed full of tips and practical advice on how to declutter your space, time and mind – including a guest post from me on how to make mealtimes simpler! Tara also wrote a post on creating capsule wardrobes for your kids for A Simple and Contented Life…read it here! Sharing her family’s journey of learning to cultivate a life with enough, Tara’s blog has everything you need to tackle your own decluttering projects and succeed in living a life more simple.
4 | Embracing Simple
At number #24 is the blog Embracing Simple. With a tagline of “inspiration to create a life you love”, it’s not surprising it caught my attention. Passionate about living a life more fulfilling and intentional, Christina strives to help others do the same. Writing about all things simple living, you’ll find articles on how to be more frugal, decluttering your home and happiness and gratitude as well as parenting and motherhood.
5 | Simple Families
I’ve been following Denaye and her blog Simple Families for a long while now and love it so it’s great to see her listed as #28 in Feedspot’s list of simple living blogs. A Clinical Social Worker who specialises in children and families and has a Ph.D. in Child Development, Denaye really knows her stuff! Her blog and podcast (which I listen to regularly) are full of practical help and advice on simplifying childhood and living well with your kids.
