 link up with Holly today & join the fun...what kinda girl are you?

and speaking of girls -- i have a girl here today whom I adore. You may remember me mentioning her before over here on le blog because she is a blogger I have been following from the very beginning. But besides that she was the first blogger who I reached out to that actually wrote me back when I had a few quick questions...& she was as sweet as can be & since then I have followed her since I started blogging almost 1 year ago....SO i know you will just love her too. Besides being so down to earth, she has such a fun sense of style & writes from the heart....oh & did I mention its WEDDING week on her blog?!?

....& even better she is sharing her TOP 3 BEST Blogging Advice....so without further ado meet the beautiful

Hey, hey, hey!  I'm Sarah and I write over at Coming Unstitched.  It's my little space where I share my personal style (when I'm not wearing pajamas that is), my love for design, and advice/inspiration for your wardrobe!  I have just wrapped up doing a 30x30x30 challenge (which by the way, is kind of terrible so I don't recommend it- you'll miss your other clothes way too much) and this week I'm sharing alllllllllll about my recent wedding.  Which means you get to see way too many pictures of my face- and my adorable husband's.  When I'm not being obsessive with my blog or working full time, you can also find me writing a fashion column for my local newspaper, or working with clients in my new Etsy shop.  Clearly I don't have enough to do in my life.

Now that I've been blogging about a year and a half, I'm obviously an expert on the whole thing (this is definitely a joke- is ANYONE an expert on blogging?!) my best advice for you is this:

 Be kind.  First and foremost you must realize that people are putting themselves out there on their blog so there is no point in leaving rude comments.  If you don't like something, just move on.  And if someone comes to you for help, HELP THEM as best you can.  We're all very busy but there is a reason that this person is reaching out to you and usually it takes a lot of guts to do so.

  Leave THOUGHTFUL comments.  I love, love, love finding great new blogs and let's face it, there are a ton of them out there.  If someone leaves me a nice comment, 99% of the time I'm going to go to their blog and check it out.  But if all you leave is a "Great post, would you like to follow each other?" or "I'm following you, come follow me back", chances are I'm not coming to visit.  I put a lot of time into my posts (as I'm sure you do) so acknowledging that you actually read it is more important to me.

 Keep evolving.  When I first started out, I never did outfit posts.  As someone who works from home I'm usually in pajamas and you can't really launch a style blog with pajamas (or maybe you can- and it might just be the best blog ever!).  But the few times I did post an outfit, people LOVED it.  So over the year I've evolved once I've seen what my readers respond to.  I will always post what I love, but my readers are the ones giving me the opportunity to do so and the ones that keep coming back.  I want to keep them interested.  So change it up, introduce a new series, do something out of your comfort zone.  Just keep your readers coming back for more.

I hope that you'll come visit me- there are plenty of ways to say hi:


Let's be friends!

P!nky said...

I have more pink in my closet than anything else.

I watched episodes of NCIS over and over again.

Katie said...

I seriously wish I could adopt every homeless animal as well!! And I totally am that girl that is running Saturday/Sunday errands in sweats and no makeup!

Anonymous said...

Pearls & Paws

Kathrin@shopschoolsleep said...

Haha "when they make a darker color" than black!! So funny!! I am forbidden to take in any more animals (we only have 2 cats haha) at least until we get a house...at least that's what I tell myself...and I am absolutely forbidden to watch the Sarah Maclaughlin ASAPCA commercial or Animal Planet...I want to rescue all animals...except spiders and snakes...those are not pets!!

I loved this link up. I found I have a lot in common with a lot of my bloggy friends. I have WAY more black than color, I would hoard animals from shelters if I could afford to and if it wasn't frowned upon, I listen to music all day long.

Happy Wednesday!

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I wish I could adopt all the homeless animals too! It breaks my heart that there are people out there that don't love animals like us animal lovers :-)

Janna Renee said...

I wish I'd have known about this link up sooner! I already knew most of these things about you, but that's because of our special relationship ;) BEAUTIFUL picture of you!

Kristine@thefoleyfam said...

Kel!!! Love that pic of you!!! Onr of my favs beautiful!! After reading your list... Confirms we are #soulsisters #loveyou
