Guest Blogger- Whitney Hartmann

Thanks Amanda for inviting me to be your first Guest Blogger. I think you'll find my entry more than appropriate because it is all about Blogs!

I am not a huge blogger. I have a blog for my business, and I post photographs every so often, but I love searching through blogs. Most of them have blogrolls, or list of blogs, on their sidebars, so once you find a good one you can click through all of their favorites as well. I am always sending Amanda links of my favorite new blogs that I like. I am a terrible online surfer, so blogs are a perfect way for me to catch up on the latest trends and be inspired by artists, photographers, crafters, other moms just like me, or just to catch up with some family bloggers.

So without further ado, here is a list of my latest favorite blogs, Amanda's excluded. Mark them as your favs, add them to your blogroll. You'll want to checkback for new great inspirations everyday.

Finally, if you want to jump on the bandwagon and start a blog for your self, I highly recommend it. It is a great outlet for your creative juices, or just a wonderful way to stay in touch. Here is a list of places you can get a blog for free.

Hi,
We are 3 gals trying to be able to stay home with our families. There are actually 5 of us on the site, but Robin doesn't do crafts, she writes for the vintage recipe site and Susie only does the air freshener blanks.

I hate to ask, but we were told we needed to be on bloggers "favorite list" or blog rolls for people to find our site when searching.

So we are asking for help.

Would you add our site to your blogs fav list? I will add yours to mine if you like.

It is
Starla's Candle Making

We have a vintage recipe site too.

Thank you so much
