From everything I’ve been reading, I know I’m not alone when I say I’m feeling so grateful and lucky for the good things that came my way in 2011. Who knew the life of a blogger could be so rich and rewarding? And I mean that in the soul sense, but there’s a lot of good luck and timing that wove its way through, too.
Like connecting with the amazing group of bloggers, Canadian Design & Lifestyle Bloggers West.
This group is dynamic and full of talented, ambitious personalities. All you have to do is read the blogs of our DLBwest members to know I’m not kidding! Do you remember the idsWEST weekend I wrote about here, and my interview with designer Kelly Deck, here? Well these opportunities wouldn’t have been possible, this fusion of social media and design…
And if not for blogging, I would not have even known about, let alone entered, the fabulous giveaways hosted by fellow bloggers and gifted creatives alike. Which means I would not have been the lucky winner of the giveaways I wrote about here and here. And seriously, there were a ton of jaw-dropping giveaways!
If not for the amazing world of blogging I might not have been as informed about these design books that found their way onto my wish list…
And are now scratched off because my awesome hubby put them under the tree! Well, he put the first 2 under the tree, and gave me a gift card to Chapters for the last one because he wasn’t sure if I seriously wanted all 3!!! And I know I’m not the only one who got to add a few of these books to the coffee table collection!
Blogging has given me so many tips and a ton of information that’s often hard to find. Where would I be without the tutorials, the go-to’s, and the do not do’s that might not otherwise arise? Because of blogging I have taken on projects I probably wouldn’t have attempted before, like the summer and the fall Pinterest challenges!
Speaking of Pinterest, that’s a whole other world that’s a blogger’s delight! But it’s not limited to bloggers, oh no, not at all. Have you stopped by? Oh, and I heard whispers in the fall that there will be a winter challenge coming some time in January! Do you think you might join in the fun? Keep an eye on Young House Love blog, because that’s where the details will be.
Reading blogs can be a one-stop shop, and trust me, I’ve discovered a world of resources literally at my fingertips… you know, clicking across the keyboard can open some magical doors! Do you know how much information is packaged in a blog and tied up with the visuals as if they were the bow? Blogs are pretty to look at, and practical to read!
Blogging is the doorway into the hearts and homes of others. I know, because it’s your comments that touch my heart, your decorating ideas that fill my home, and your recipes that I want to try. Post after post, the inspiration to try new ideas, to get things done, the eureka moments when you learn something new, and just to share and share alike is what makes blogging the special community that it is.
