When I started blogging, I was SO lost. Bloglandia was this place that seemed like high school. Somehow everyone knew each other and it was tough to get in. Eventually though, I learned my way (and re-learning now with WP!) and along the way bumped into a few fabulous bloggers that I cannot wait to tell you about.
I met Leeann of Join The Gossip through a Fall Swap set up by another blogger that we both happened to follow. Then as it turned out, Leeann was a blog friend of an old friend of mine from PA. She is fun, funny and sweet as can be with a keen eye for fashion, always up on current events, and honestly, is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Her blog has tons of fashion, makeup and beauty info and tips. Not to mention great giveaways and reviews on lots of different products, restaurants and etsy shops. If that doesn’t sell ya, you gotta check out the weekly “Man Candy Monday” linky (one of my favorites to drool over)…cause um, YUM.
Sage of A Lotta Lettuce is actually an old e-friend of mine that I have been communicating with via message board for god, like 10 yrs? Her blog actually inspired me to get to menu planning (even though with the craziness of the past 2 weeks, i’ve fallen short… regrouping soon!). Her blog is great for those of us at the stage in our lives when we wanna get our lives together and be grown ups. She talks about saving money, home ownership, menu planning (yea, I salivate while checking this out…you will too) and weight loss. In fact, she just lost her first goal of 30 lbs, big congrats to her.
Erin if the lady behind my fabulous header, button, logo and my theme. She has re-designed my logos so I could have Stone Alley Hosting (who actually set this up as it is now….so this blurb is a two-fer, Becky is amazing to work with and I highly recommend using her for your transfer!) do my transfer and hosting and she did it super fast with amazing results. I actually won a blog design by her sometime last year and she basically created my blog to what it is now. I really have her to thank for organizing my blog and giving me the traffic to get to where I am now and expanding more than I ever thought I would. Plus she does it while managing a household and a newly walking baby girl. Can we say super mom?
Sara of BSD I actually feel upon on Facebook through a chain of referrals. When I actually got to have a quick chat with her, I discovered not only were we both LA locals, but she lived just a few miles down my street (over the hill, as we put it here in LA). She has a TON of super saving tips and show you you can live frugally and have a fun filled life. She is the ONLY money saving blog I know that posts every hour on the hour, and for us bloggers out there, we KNOW that blogging once a day can be a challenge, can you imagine 24 in a day??? Woah. My hat’s off to you BSD!
Damien is an old friend from my Play Production days in High school. Yes, once upon we all wanted to be “actors” but I think that’s just the norm for growing up in LA. All I gotta say is THANK GOODNESS Damien went another route cause just look at his photography. I cannot stress enough how beautiful his shots are and I love looking at his wedding pictures. He truly captures the heart of each couple…and captures the beauty in everything he shoots.
I am so happy to have found these bloggers and I hope that you all read them and get to know them as I have!
