If you’ve read my blog, you probably know I like to laugh and I like to have fun. When it comes to reading blogs, I still like to laugh but I also want something that makes me feel. The feeling can be sad, sympathetic, empathetic, inspired, elated, breathless, disgusted, angry, or any other powerful emotion.

And there you have it. The posts that made me feel something. I can be a tough reader and only one post made my eyes water but so many of these just drew out emotions in me, some good, some bad. But they all accomplished the goal of making me feel. I hope at least one of them does the same for you.
