Artful Blogging

Yesterday in the mail I received a copy of Artful Blogging, a magazine by Somerset Studios. I was very flattered that my plush houses photo was included in the article about Whip Up. In case you have never heard of Whip Up (which I doubt, but just incase) It is Collaborative weblog sharing news and information on many kinds of crafts

There are some great blogs featured in the magazine like Jek’s Scrumdillydilly, and the blog Elsa Mora which I actually just started reading about a week ago.

This kind of nicely leads up to something I have been wanting to post…to ask for links to your blogs! In the last few weeks I have found some lovely blogs all through my comments. Such as When Skies Are Gray, Head Explodie, Peapods, and so many more!!

I use a blog reader to read them all and it saves so much time, and will just show you what has been updated. So dear readers, do you have a blog? Please do tell!

    Hey! I know you just got like 50 new blogs to read, but I thought I’d also take you up on the offer. I just started mine but I’m trying to post everyday. It is kind of a mishmash of stuff I collect, places I go (or want to go) and things I do. Hence the title.

  42. Natch says:

    how does one get/use a blog reader? Such a thing would make my life so much easier! hah. Of course, it would probably mean I would start reading more blogs… a vicious cycle you know ;)

    my blog is located at though, being a full time student, it is generally only active over my breaks… thankfully, the longest break of the year, summer, is just one month away!
