Less than a year ago I didn’t really know much about blogs or blogging. I had been briefly introduced to it by my friend, LA Designer Mark Cutler, But other than that was a complete novice!
Now that I have about 10 months of blogging under my belt, I can honestly say that I LOVE it! I feel like a full-fledged member of the blogosphere. In fact, I consider myself a card-carrying member of the design bloggers of America!!!
Besides loving to write my blog, I have a similar love of reading great blogs…especially design related ones!! Early on I was inspired by All the Best Blog, Coco + Kelley, and The City Sage!! I thought these girls had it going on (and they did) and I dreamed of one day having the blog successes that they do. Well the fabulous thing about the blogosphere is that it is a close knit group and I now not only consider these three blogging Divas my friends, I have been mentored by and promoted by each of them on their gorgeous sites!!
But fabulous as these 3 blog divas are, they have lots of company in the blogosphere and I have loved every minute of finding new and exciting blogs to follow through my 10 month blog journey. I want to share with you several of my FAVORITE Sites below!
I am thinking about launching my own Blog awards as so many sites do and I think there is a certain ring to “The Tobi’s” sort of like the Tony’s…so don’t be surprised to see the first annual “Tobi’s” later this year! But in the mean time, here are a group of sites (just to name a few) that will definitely be in the running for “the Tobi’s”!! I know some of these are pretty obvious, but they are the sites that I hit every day and if you don’t then you should!
So to recap on this Independence Day and Day #4 of Things I LOVE….I adore BLOGS!!! And Happy 4th of July because I also adore the USA!!!
