I am constantly impressed by the number of creative bloggers there are in blog-land. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since there are so many millions of bloggers, the odds are favorable that there would be huge number of talented people in the pool.
Over the 3 years I’ve been blogging I have found that some of the earlier sites I used to follow have either dropped from the face of blog land, Under Spanish Moss, Atmosphere, or, as in the case of some of the DIY sites, I have been honest with myself and recognized that I will not do certain projects, even if I have the time. Therefore I’ve dropped some of the do-it-yourself/craft sites from my “must read daily” list. (there are only so many hours in a day) I still visit them, but with minimal free time (I work full time), I’ll scan the posts from time to time instead of daily.
That said, there have been some new additions to my “favorites and/or must read” list and I thought I might introduce you, just in case you haven’t discovered them on your own! I’ve added a couple to the “Recommended” column on my home page, as well as one that has been on the list for some time but is worth special mention.
I’ll begin with the newest blog (at least for me), Inspiring Interiors. A friend of mine, Carol, recommended this site. Carol is a designer with fabulous taste and I happen to love her work, so when she suggested I have a look at Inspiring Interiors, I immediately put my mouse to work and knocked on the proverbial blog site door.
Kifus has been blogging since 2007, but her archives suggests that she may have started in earnest in 2009. This is my story where blogging is concerned, so I can relate. Her site has taken me to more countries than I could ever hope to visit, and the best part…we get to visit homes in these countries and cities. I’ve visited Australia, Brittany, Aix en Provence, Sardinia, Italy, and Vermont (in the U.S.), to name a few.
Last but not least, I can’t even remember how I discovered Content in a Cottage but I have probably gotten more enjoyment from Rosemary’s brief but constant inspiring and entertaining posts. Her unique eye for images always amazes me and she usually only posts one picture and a brief paragraph but both tend to stay with me all day. She usually posts about 3 of these one picture/one paragraph musings each day.
As her blog name suggests, Rosemary lives in a charming cottage in Chatham, New Jersey. From what I gather she is in Real Estate and sometimes that provides her with sources for a lovely home, garden, field or horse or doggie for us to meet. Rosemary’s own doggie is a favorite blogland pet that I always enjoy hearing about…he is very sweet and his pictures always have me smiling! Meet Webster, King of Content in a Cottage…
I can count on finding some unique room design when I visit Content in a Cottage…wouldn’t this be the best bathroom? You couldn’t help but smile when you walk in to brush your teeth each morning!
As a fan of cottages, I can always count on Rosemary to come through…
You’ll also see plenty of spacious abodes…
So, rally the horses and hounds and stop by for a visit to Content in a Cottage if you have a moment.
I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting my new blog friends and wish you happy touring!
