Blog Hopping…

{Image via Matchbook Mag June 2011}

I love going to the library and getting to see rows and rows of books just full of potential. You never know which one could be new favorite so it’s fun to browse the aisles and see what catches my fancy. In the blog world I feel like people’s blog rolls do that for me. I love heading to one of my favorite blogs and seeing what’s on their daily reading list.

When a re-did the blog a couple of years ago the trend was to go without blog rolls so I did just that and I must say I miss seeing all of my daily reads on the side bar. Don’t worry I’m undergoing another re-vamp just tweak things a bit and I will be adding a new blog roll.

Lately with design clients, family, baby, and blogging I haven’t had as much time to check out new to me blogs. Last night I was literally looking at a blank screen in WordPress for hours, because I had no ideas for a blog post today. Normally when I read other people’s blog someone’s post will pop an idea into my head and through that I will formulate blog post ideas. Well lack of blog hopping and wrapping up another crazy week with massive snow, power outages and a gas shortage I was simply on empty when it came time to be inspired for today’s post.

This morning it hit me that my blog readers were probably the best people out there to let me know what’s on their blog radar and who I should check out for inspiration. So, if you have a free moment I would love for you to leave me a comment and send new blogs my way!

Happy Friday!

You could also check out (my blog) I admittedly have no idea what I’m doing and am super new at this, but I really enjoy the creative outlet and the adventure of turning my city apartment into home on an intern’s budget… a.k.a just some free coffee from time to time ;)

    Love following your blog. I really love the layout with your fabric swatches for link buttons. So clever! We have been documenting our lives on our blog for a while, it is slowly transitioning into our work portfolio site. We have been living in and remodeling our 800 sq/ft apartment, raising three dogs, renovating a trailer and starting a general construction and design business. We would love for you to check out our crazy!
