  1. I was scared at first, because the sidebar thing wasn’t showing up because of an old plugin 🙁 I’ve got rid of it now though haha.

    I love this blog, and all other blogs like it. I love it when people plug great sites, especially ones with articles on. I just love reading them, haha (:

  2. Man, God bless you for this post!

    I have never known about existence of such great websites, even though I’ve been looking.

    I’m definitely going to be a constant reader of some. :hehe:

  3. I love that you’re into design– we share that together! I wish that I was better at graphic design, though. I have such an appreciation for it, but I lack the skill to be able to create extraordinary things…thus. I am an interior design junkie. Haha.

    I think it’s great that you posted this because the design of the blog is SO important. The content could be the greatest thing to have ever been written, but if your audience has no idea how to find it or it all looks like a hot mess– that’s a big turn off.

    You’re adorable, though, keep up the good work and good luck with everything!
