In looking for sources of inspiration for my blog I often find myself checking out other peoples’ blogs. I love taping into their niche market, seeing what is inspiring the creator at the moment and also influencing their readers. It is a way to keep up with the times, keep ideas flowing back and forth and stay inspired. Here are a few blogs created by kids from around the Coachella Valley that are my personal favorites. Each of these feed me different tastes of their flavor, combined making a delicious meal, one that you can really sink your teeth into.
