As I come up on my first year anniversary of blogging in about 6 weeks, I have been thinking a lot about what makes a blog enjoyable. I started trying to figure out what attracts me to a blog. I quickly decided it is a lot to do with pretty pictures. When I began this blog I felt like I had to post new projects as often as possible to make my blog interesting and attract followers. I love blogs that do a lot of tutorials and show before and after pictures...but I also like blogs that post about their kids, pets, gardens..everything that their life in all about. So I have decided that I want to be as well rounded of a blogger as I can..and I want to work on taking more pretty pictures!
I think that most of us would agree that Tausha at Simply Me is one of the Queens of blogging pretty pictures. I can stare for hours at her pictures of pretty fabrics, laces, just all kinds of pretty things laying around her house. I wanted to let everyone know that Kim at White Whispers 2 u is having a giveaway of a book she put together of Tausha's photos.

Wouldn't we all love to win this?! Which brings me to another thing I love about blogs--so many bloggers are just so nice and so giving! Blogging has really enriched my life and made me feel so good about the truly good people that make up this world.
So I will try to make my blog as enjoyable and pretty as I can...
I often get questions about what kind of camera I use so I thought I would share.
I have this old Canon Rebel that has been a trusted friend for many years. I affectionately call it "the beast". It is as heavy as it looks.
Then I have my purse camera which is what I use most of the time..it is a Sony Cyber shot. This is the 3rd one I have had (first one got stolen out of my purse, second one got dropped, and now I am very careful with #3). I love this little camera. I think it takes the best pictures I have seen from a point and shoot...in my opinion. I took half the pictures in this post with the beast, and half with my purse camera. Can you tell a difference?
You'll have to excuse my obsession with my roses lately...I think they are so pretty!
So what attracts you to a blog? I'd love to know!
Thanks for visiting!
