Blog, blog,blog........

So I'm blogging about a blogger who blogs about other bloggers, still with me? Kim over at Today's Creative blog has a gorgeous site that does just what it says, every day she showcases a blog that has caught her eye. Looking for something new interested in finding a gem, then her site will get you there in style. Have I mentioned how visually appealing her site is? Gorgeous.

Blogging cartoons

I ran across How About Orange's recent post and it made me laugh, she has a cartoon by Dave Walker and it's pretty funny. I have had this one in my cartoon file for sometime, the side c's , and after going to the site I found the artist is Hugh MacLeod. His site has other very witty cartoons that it seems he scribbles on the back of business cards. Clever, huh.


What attracts me to a particular site?
Content, well written, site design and graphic layout, organization, unique communication venues, reliable updates and the need and success to inspire or educate others.
Flygirls has hit the proverbial nail on the head with all of it. Andrea is a 29 year old designer living in Philly; her site was recently awarded Best Niche Blog by 2007 Black Weblog Awards. Her site though primarily about fashion design hits on many other creative arenas such as textiles, architecture, art, photography, and beauty. I also recommend watching the Webisodes.
Below is the latest Webisode, if not viewable please got to her Youtube site.

Flygirls also has a link of the day in which she simply leads her readers to a blog or site that has caught her eye.

Yet another neat feature is Fly girl of the week in which she interviews fly women in the creative industry and finds out what inspires them.

If you are fly material nominate yourself here, and if picked you’ll not only be featured on her blog but also receive a “Fly and be inspired” tote. It’s a win-win, right?
I hope you enjoy Flygirls as much as I do. Happy Blogging.

Tea swap.

I'm working on 5 packages of tea to send out to those participating in a tea swap from I'll update this site once I have some photos downloaded. If you have yet to visit I suggest you get on over and see what it is all about. I was thrilled to have found it, since I love sending mail and really, really, love to recieve mail I think this site has helped immensely.

I swap with Swap-bot!

Get your blog listed! Blog Directory

I had to add this before signing off for the day. I came across Delightful Blogs and think it is fantastic. What a plethora of blogs to get lost in, and such a quick way to find the blogging community that interests you most. The sites boast at having 2013 blogs listed and I'm sure they are adding more each day. My fingers are just tingling to be let loose to flip through all 2,013 sites. I have to make my husband a big fat turkey sandwich, just load him up on all that sleep inducing tryptophan, that way I can get some quality surfing done with out having to battle him for the computer. I highly recommend adding your blog to the site they have a registration form and you have to meet certain criteria, have to have been up and running for at least three months (that takes me out right there) but if you fit the bill why not add your site so that your message can be showcased for others to find. I'm counting my three months down till I can add my blog.

Inspiration: Artsy Momma

Okay I'm only on my, what, third post and I am inspired by who has reached and surpassed her 200th blog. Amazing, her posts are clever and witty, her daughter is adorable and she writes to her posts as if she is talking with family. Allowing each of us to feel comfortable and accepted into her blogging world. I highly recommend adding Artsy Momma to your repertoire.
