Literary Friday ya’ll…..

literary friday

I’m looking forward to this weekend. A weekend of hopefully quiet time, some reading, some blogging and just trying to relax.

Why am I looking forward to this?

Because next weekend, the most adorable niece ever, Miss A, is spending the weekend with me- AND it’ll be all about the A, all weekend long. We’ll be dancing to Taylor Swift and Megan Trainor. Continue reading

Where is Traveling With T?

where is traveling with t

Hey lovelies… every time I post this type of topic I find myself humming “Where in The World is Carmen Sandiego?” (BTW, that trench coat she wore with the artistically placed hat on her head- FASHION sense. #Envious) But enough about me and my envy of a cartoon-ish character’s wardrobe…. Traveling With T has hit the road… Well, the road of the internets, that is. Yes- been burning up the road the past 2 days- and I want you, my readers, to know where I’ve been- and to able to read my guest posts- and give my hosts some love! Continue reading

Get your bloggy, crafty and foodie links here in Thursday Mashup! Plus a giveaway or 2!

Bloggy:

-Last week during Bloggiesta, I talked about Did You Need A Facebook Page For Your Blog and you responded- some of you were in favor, some not. If you liked the idea of having a Facebook page, the Blogger Babes have Simple Tips to Help Promote Your Facebook page.

– Looking for Spring Reads? Book Bloggers International has suggestions!

– While Rebecca @ Love At First Book did not LOVE the book WHEN THE CYPRESS WHISPERS, it is one of Katie’s @ Doing Dewey Futuristic Friday selections. After reading what Rebecca posted about it being “a light read” I’m a bit more curious to check it out!

 

Crafty

H2O Bungalow has a sweet Some Bunny Loves You sign made (with a free template!)

Fresh Idea Studio has a beautiful DIY Easter wreath/Spring Wreath (gorgeous!)

My Crafty Spot has a DIY Hexagon clock that has me doing a happy dance over the color!

 

Foodie

Kleinworth and Co has Toasted Coconut Brownie Torte that looks so delicious, you might just want to lick your screen! (No judgment- it crossed my mind!)

– 30 Handmade Days has an easy (did you hear me? I said EASY!) recipe for Melt In Your Mouth Cheddar Biscuits. Now, listen, there is about nothing better than sinking myMelt In  teeth into a good Red Lobster biscuit- except for the drive and the fact that I always have a craving at the most inconvenient times. So, I’m def ready to try this!

Blog Talk

Book Bloggers International talk about using GIFS- the how and why (and the cons of using them).

Love at First Book and The Book Wheel have kicked off their November Book Club: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK! Join in!

Thanks to Love at First Book and her Fabulous Blogs (where she gives love and shout-outs to great blogs)- I saw the blog The Thinking Closet. Then when checking out Rebecca’s relatively new Policies page, I saw that she credited The Thinking Closet. So I checked out The Thinking Closet– and saw Lauren’s latest post is about 10 MORE Tips for Bloggers (and also that she had posted a previous 1o Tips for New Bloggers). Reading these tips, I found myself nodding along, already either thinking or doing some of this stuff (but still plenty of other tips that I want to do!) Thanks Rebecca for helping me find The Thinking Closet!

The Book Wheel writes a great post about traffic (and not the bad kind of traffic where you are stuck in your car for hours!) No, Allison writes about the traffic blogs want- Visitors! 8 Simple Ways To Boost Your Traffic is fab (and good for bloggers from 1 day of experience to many years!)
