I saw this and instantly cracked up. How much do we all need a copy of this print for our walls? Answer: a lot.
This is especially apropos considering that yesterday I was given a Liebster Blog Award from the lovely Tina at Colourliving. Liebster is German for “beloved,” which just makes the whole thing even sweeter. The Liebster Blog award is a “pay it forward” honor that recognizes your favorite, smaller blogs (ones with less than 200 followers) and once chosen, you get to bestow it on other bloggers. Tina got to pick 5 blogs, and she graciously chose me (woo!), and the rest of our little Pia Posse (xoxo): Theresa at InspirationCooperative, Annie at Insideology, Chi at Carousel, and Lauren and Still+Life. And now, I get to pick 5 blogs to pass along the award to:
Congrats, ladies! Now go nominate your own 5!
I got to thinking about when I first started blogging, almost a year ago to the day, and how much things have changed in the that time. I’m now writing to an actual audience instead of just my mom (sorry mom, you still count!), and I have this amazing group of blog-friends who I can’t wait to “see” when I get up in the morning. Blogging has given me back my love of writing, and thanks to blogging I’m once again carrying a camera around everywhere I go. I’ve said it before and it hasn’t gotten any less cheesy, but I couldn’t do this without you guys. I also couldn’t do it without any of this stuff:
What about you? What are your staples for blogging? Every time I sit down to post or catch up on other blogs, I’m surrounded by almost all of those things (which means that yes, I do go through an inordinate amount of pretzel m&ms). I’m so bummed Apple stopped making the white macbook. Mine is less than 8 months old and I’m already stressing myself out about 3 years from now when it stops working and I can’t replace it with an exact replica. It’s my third white Apple laptop, having gone through 2 previous iBooks in my day before upgrading to an iMac. I still have/love/use that computer, but let’s be honest: being able to sit in bed and blog is one of my favorite things in the world. I realize how lucky that makes me.
