Guilty Pleasures: Reading Blogs and a Vote For You!

Hi Peeps!  I’m on route back to Wisconsin as you read this.  My trip out west was a blast, but now it’s time to get back to work!  I’ll be sharing trip photos next week and hopefully not too many accident stories.  😉

For this week’s guilty pleasures, enjoy the best of the blogosphere that I’ve been reading and think you should too!

On Writing:

Many of you shared this post by Roni Loren on using copyright images in your blogs, but it warrants another round!  If you didn’t catch Bloggers Beware:  You Can Get Sued For Using Pics on Your Blog, you don’t know what you missed.

To save you after the initial panic of the serious issue in Roni’s post, check out August McLaughlin’s post which helps you create your own graphic images, Blog Images Made Easy:  Tips from a Non-Graphic Artist.

Donah, of Sweet Jelly Bean, also gives a creative outlet in her DIY Monday:  5 Easy Steps to Make Your Own Blog Header.  When I get back, I just might give this a try.  Who’s willing to talk me off the technology ledge when I do?

Kait Nolan shared The Dangers of Writing What You Know with some great tips so as not to go too over the top or not give enough.

Pop Culture:

Please HELP!  I need your input! 

Inspired by Catie Rhodes’ post who is fine tuning some changes to her blog, I really wanted to reach out to you, MY READERS, and ask for your help.

I’ve been posting a barrage of topics lately and I’m curious to know what interests you most!  Blogging really wouldn’t matter without my readers.  I only post because I enjoy my discussions with each and every one of YOU!  I’ll soon be celebrating my 2nd blog anniversary and I’d love to make this next year of the Happiness Project bigger and better than ever!  So please take some time and tell me what you’d love to see more of on my blog!  And if you select other, please share some helpful comments below!  I always appreciate feedback!

Thanks for chatting!  I truly appreciate all thoughts and comments everyone shares!  You guys are the reason I write!
