1. http://jessicahische.is/thinkingthoughts
I first discovered Jessica Hische while taking a class on Skillshare and have been a big fan ever since then. I don’t check it regularly but am never disappointed when I do.
2. Pinterest
Pinterest is always a go-to of mine for inspiration, and searching “graphic design” only makes it better. It’s a great one-stop-shop for inspiration, tutorials, cool products, and more.
3. http://www.thedieline.com/
The Dieline is a packaging design blog, but also includes examples of ads, fantastic lettering, and of course amazing packaging.
4. http://www.youthedesigner.com
A fun compilation of resources, articles, templates, and freebies
5. http://www.smashingmagazine.com
This was a favorite of mine in college for inspiration, as well as tutorials.
6. http://www.johnnycupcakes.com/blog/
Is anyone surprised that this made my top 10 list? 
7. http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/#.VGIvo4eFZ00
Brand New is the absolute best place to read about logo updates for major companies. There are a lot of other good things on there as well, but that is my favorite part.
8. http://www.creativebloq.com
Creative Bloq shares a lot of features with the other blogs on my list, but I really like UI and layout of this particular blog.
9. http://blog.papersource.com
Paper Source is a dangerous place for my wallet, but scrolling through the blog is slightly safer. But only slightly.
10. https://blog.etsy.com/en/
This is another one I don’t always remember to check regularly, but it is easy to quickly scroll through and get caught up.
