Favorites of the Week 02.07-02.13.10

I’m going to try and highlight my favorite posts of the week, every Saturday.  I usually put a *star* next to my favorites in my Google Reader.  I re-read them and comment later, I forward them to friends, and I even post them on my Facebook Fan Page.  I know that as a blogger, there is so much to learn from other bloggers.

So here they are, my favorites for the week of 02.07.10-02.13.10:

1. Dadvatar-Busy Dad Blog

Jim’s tale of attending the Blissdom Conference as the only male blogger. He compares it to the popular movie, Avatar.  With whitty content, and great pictures to go along.

2. Heart Shaped Ice Cream Sandwiches-No Biggie

What a delicious and cute Valentine’s Day treat. So simple. Brownies, ice cream, and a cookie cutter.  Yum. It makes me hungry just typing this out.

3. Connecting with your Community of Readers-Tip Junkie

Laurie from Tip Junkie did a presentation at Blissdom about Community and Blogging.  She talks about networking, and creating a community for your blog. This is the first of a series.

4. A Happy Home for Hotel Toiletries-This Mama Makes Stuff

Carrie talks about donating those sample size bottles of lotion and shampoo that you bring home to homeless and women’s shelters. I mean really, do you use theses? I know that I sometimes use them at the Hotel, but when I get home, they never get used and go to waste.

5. Wanna Be J. Crew Ruffle Shirt Tutorial-Her Southern Charm

All you need is a plain t-shirt, an old knit shirt, rotary cutters, a self-healing mat, matching thread, and a sewing machine. You can make this design with these simple instructions, and you can save yourself from spending $50.


Just one more thing for you to make me long to be featured on. :) Anything that will inspire me to kick my butt into gear and BE MORE CONSISTENT. Ugh.


Thanks Girl for including my post! Is it possible to be going through Julie withdraws already? When Tiffany told me she had to leave Friday I was certain the my weekend would be ruined. Thank heaven we connected because you made it SO much fun for me. Seriously!! You Rock and I'm so going to need to find an excuse to come to Cali and play with you and Kelly.


Ooo some great posts! :)
