blog brunch have you heard of blog brunch? when i discovered it via august empress, i thought, how fun! in a nut shell, blog brunch is a live question and answer chat that takes place on twitter every first saturday of each month. hosted by two lovely bloggers, megan and ms. pink, people from all over the globe meet to discuss our favorite subject – blogging!

each month, they spotlight a different hot topic which allows bloggers of all sorts to network, ask questions, share information and most importantly- build relationships.

if you missed last month’s, you can catch up with this handy recap right here.

Let's Do Brunch the next brunch is this saturday, may 5th at 1pm EST and 10 am PST. mark your calendars and join in- i’ll meet you there! and don’t forget to use the tag #blogbrunch

the august break

the august break

happy monday, lovelies! i wanted to share with you that this month, i will be participating in susannah conway’s the august break! the idea is to post a photo each day and look at august through the lens of your camera. it’s just a little way to take a break from the regular pressures and expectations of blogging.

my purpose will not be to post the most beautiful photo every day, but rather simply share with you my life through the lens of the camera (or droid). there will be no editing, no pressure and no rules- just fun! some days there may be some text while other days i may let the photo just speak for itself. i am also going to use this time to work on some projects, catch up on work and get a head on what i have planned for this fall.

and on that note, i would like to encourage you to join us in the august break as well! with over 650 participants so far, i think we all should to take some time for ourselves and allow some ‘give’ in our lives. so what do you say, will you join me in looking at august through the lens of your camera (dslr, compact, polaroid, iphone)? there are no rules, just lots of pretty photos to look at!

love, bonnie

some of you may know that i recently had the absolute delight in taking part of holly becker’s  blogging your way e-course.  holly is the founder and editor of decor8 and in this e-class lends to us her advice, tips, and expertise in blogging and all of the wonderful things that accompany it.  holly does such a wonderful job at making each of us feel right at home.  she creates a comfortable and cozy place for us to learn, ask questions and get to know one another.  from overcoming writer’s block to tech help, the material we covered went above and beyond what i ever expected.

to add to all that holly shared with us, we also had weekly contributor and amazing photographer leslie shewring share her expertise.  you might remember her from her beautiful blog, a creative mint?  leslie shared with us everything from camera settings to adding text and editing images as we quickly filled out notebooks with inspirations, ideas and know-how.

all in all, i highly recommend holly becker’s e-course, blogging your way, and you’ll be happy to know that she plans to teach it again this fall.  it has been some of the most inspiring and educational 7 weeks i’ve had to date and the things we learned will go on being referenced for years and years to come.  if you have a blog or aspire to write one, i hope you will make it a point to experience this amazing class!
