Bakery….

Have you visited Bakery yet? It is an amazing resource for bloggers like me, I love reading all their tips and tricks. If you’re an aspiring blogger or you just fancy reading something different for a change, then head on over.

This article on their today made me think…

Here’s what happens: You find a blog, love the blog, and tack it onto the numerous feeds in your Google Reader, categorizing it by industry and making cute little notes [or is that just me?]. You then check said feed daily, bulk up on all of your day’s recommended dosage of Inspiration, and forget it until tomorrow.

Here’s the problem: As a blogger, I recognize the need for community. And one of the easiest ways to gauge your community is through readers/commenters. So how do your readers who follow your feed tell you what they like/dislike if they’re not commenting b/c they rarely visit your site in actual formation?

I wonder if I have a load of readers who just see my via the RSS reader?  If so come say ‘Hi’ properly…I’d like to meet you :o)

And just because I can’t post without an image…check out this little beauty I found yesterday while searching for my new haircut (getting the chop tomorrow on by birthday eeeek!)

One Week To Go!

I know I keep banging on about this, but I actually don’t care as I know someone will be kicking themselves if they miss out on this amazing free wedding photography contest.  You have exactly a week to finalise your entries and get them to me.  I will be (trying!) to pick a winner soon after the closing date – there have been some great ones so far! 
Clicky clicky clicky!

Just another little gorgeous and inspiring image to keep you going for now..

So, What Happens Next?

For most of you, your wedding and impending marriage is probably the biggest, most life changing thing you have ever done right?  But what happens next?
I’m not talking about the post-wedding depression you might read about elsewhere, but the question that will crop up as soon as you become a Mrs (or Mr!) “So, will we be hearing the pitter patter of teeny tiny feet soon?”

As a newlywed myself (can I still be considered a newlywed after nearly a year!?) I get this question constantly..which is fine, it’s to be expected, but I’m 25 for goodness sake…and I just bought a very fast car (hehe I had to get that one in there!) which although it is roomy is probably not the most suitable form of transport for a child…and I’m all about my cat, Akira right now.

There is loads out there on the world wide web about babies and all the jazz…probably as much as, if not more than stuff about weddings.  Yet, as with weddings, you very rarely hear from the man’s perspective.  However Marcus is trying to change that.  He has just started a blog called Terrified Dad – what a brilliant name!  Want to read all about how scary babies are? Well head right over there!

Seriously, babies do terrifyme, and don’t get me started on the whole pregnancy thing…so just to lighten the load I thought I’d better illustrate this post with a the most non-scary photograph I could find..balloons!
