If you are reading this from my actual blog and not just your email or facebook, you may have noticed I made a million little changes. It is all part of the editing process I talked about in a previous post. Not too familiar with my blog? Well, I added a link to my Etsy page right under a photo of me! I really do love that photo, and I love blogs with a photo of the writer on them. It makes the blog more personable and to be honest, it helps me keep all of my blogs straight. I read a lot of blogs on creative businesses and the photos help me associate the wisdom with a face, not just a name. The order of my widgets is different, too, which is a small thing, but I felt like my tweets were clogging up my blog space. Those needed to get moved to the bottom. Some widgets I ditched entirely if I didn’t feel like they were really helping anyone. I don’t know if the “Tag Cloud” is helpful, but I think its pretty, which counts for something.
I am really pleased to announce my “Blogs I Heart” section. Like I said, I’ve been doing so much reading, absorbing, and learning on the internet. I try to sum it up and pass it on, but sometimes you just need to go to the original source. These people are a great inspiration to me and help keep me motivated. Go check out their blogs and see for yourself. You can also find them on Twitter (in no particular order): @Glamour365, @JessVanDen, @laurasimms, @meganauman, @taragentile, & @blacksburgbelle.
I’d love to know what your “Must Read” blogs are. Please link me to them in the comments!
