It's a new month, and that means it's Blog Inspiration time again! This is definitely one of my favourite posts to write each month - and since you're all so fabulous, there's never a shortage of blogs to highlight.
Before I get on with giving out August's badges, I'd like to thank Mama Hen @ Mama's Little Chick, who kindly gave me an Outstanding Blogger Award. I'm not sure that I'm outstanding, but I am a blogger, so one out of two is okay by me. Thank you!
So, this month's badges:
|I could have given Traveller's Yarn an award in travel or craft, but since she's crafting-while-travelling, that scores extra points. I always mean to take something with me to work on on my travels, but seldom do.|
|Jacqueline over at Tinned Tomatoes is one of my favourite vegetarian bloggers - with barely a tin of tomatoes in sight (but she does make some amazing cakes).|
|Jules at Adventures in Thread manages to impress me every time I visit her blog, just with the beauty of her header photo. Plus, she's always making exquisite objects of impressive complexity (including some amazing dolls!).|
|Holly at 504 Main has an incredible eye for the fabulous, and features her favourite finds in her weekly Tickled Pink event - always a worthwhile read.|
Recipients are under no obligations, but are welcome to display the badge, and to pass it along if they wish.
And now for something a little bit different... let's talk about Facebook.
I know I'm not the only one with a Facebook page for my blog. But if I'm busy reading an interesting post, I don't always notice whether the blogger has a FB link in their sidebar, so I'm sure there are loads of great bloggers who I've yet to connect with on Facebook.
I find it helpful to get messages from my favourite sites in my Facebook news feed. If I enjoy your blog, I'd really like to 'Like' your Facebook page, too.
So, inspired by various generations of blog-hops and twitter-hops... let's have a Facebook-hop. Add your Facebook page to the linky below, then go and visit a few of your fellow bloggers:
If this works well, I'll consider making it a regular monthly feature - let me know what you think.
