“Blogging is a constant give and take of work and balance, and so many resources are needed to make our blogs more successful, and to save us time in all the tasks we have to as bloggers. Between unique photos, social media community, blog design, and everything else, it is so great to have a handful of really useful resources to help you along your blogging journey!”
→ Christine from Christine Everyday compiled an awesome list of 10 Completely Free and Crazy Useful Resources for Bloggers, and I’m seriously digging it. There are so many great new things in there, and if you’re a blogger you’d better check it out.
“Why am I writing this post? There’s an ever-growing amount of information out there about breast cancer, but if I’m being truly honest – I know next to nothing about it. That’s right. I’m 30 years old and I know very little about breast cancer other than the most basic definition of what it is. That’s why I’m using my blog to try to educate not only other women about this, but myself.”
→ Kimi from Kimi Who wrote this great post about how she doesn’t know enough about breast cancer, and since most of us probably don’t know enough, she also took the time to research and educate us further. This post also includes ways to get involved.
“Both, Emilie and I, have had the opportunity to have to move within a week of eachother. I was the lucky one because I got her to come help me while she would have to do her moving on her own. Moving is hard work. Between having to buy furniture, trying to figure out where you can save some money, and having to deal with an empty kitchen – you don’t realize how expensive things are until you go to cook dinner and realize you forgot to buy basics like salt.”
→ Laura from Burke Does put together this fabulous post with a few quick tips to help you save money with that expensive first apartment move. It can be stressful, but with good information it makes it a little bit easier.
“It is so easy to get caught up in the glitz and the glam of blogging. I know non-bloggers will giggle at my last sentence (I’m looking at you Caroline!), but if you’re a blogger you know exactly what I’m talking about. I’ve just realized that it doesn’t matter. It’s superficial. I want people to read my content because they genuinely enjoy it, not because I posted in a blog group on Facebook.”
→ Well geeze, I didn’t expect to stop by Lizzy’s blog Stumbling Upon Lizzy and find myself re-evaluating my life… She wrote about how she wants to blog for herself, inspired by Venus Trapped in Mars’ doing the same thing, and now I’m thinking. This blogging thing is hard, and it’s always changing, and sometimes you have to re-examine your priorities and POV. Hmmmmmm. Ugh, thanks Lizzy! Haha J/k.
“There are many things to love about fall: gorgeous foliage, cooler temperatures, boots and scarves, apple and pumpkin treats, holidays, and new beers. Seasonal beers have exploded on the market the past several years, and fall and pumpkin beers are the most sought-after of the group. With new brews released each year, it can be difficult to find one that suits your tastes. Luckily, Cassie and I tested some of the most popular pumpkin and fall beers so you don’t have to. It’s a tough job, but someone had to do it.”
→ We’re going to end on a much more light-hearted note, and some priorities I definitely don’t have to re-examine here, this Pumpkin Beer Guide from Lindsay at Bourbon, Lipstick, and Stillettos will do just the trick! It’s great info for those of us that love Pumpkin Beer.
