and take with a grain of salt, i did!

– Posted in: a not-so-brief history

It isn’t every day I get an email out of the blue from someone who found me on Studio30+ to tell me how much she enjoyed reading my blog. So much so, that she went all the way back to the beginning of the story, to see where I started and just where this journey has taken me. I am so incredibly flattered that the lovely Teresa of Take with a Grain would take time out of her day to give me an in-depth blog review and incredibly helpful tips on how to improve navigation (which is something I’ve been giving some thought to for some time now).

“Charlotte’s blog actually reminds me a bit of Sex and the City… In both you get to witness the dating trials and tribulations of a curly haired vixen in New York while she figures out how to handle herself after the crushing bust-up of a long-term relationship.”

Girlfriend has clearly done her homework since she knows I am the proud owner of a mess of curls. And sometimes the not-so-proud owner of a Jew-fro, depending on the season.

It seemed only fair that I give Teresa a bit of a shout-out here today as a thank you for crafting such a sweet and thoughtful post. Please check out her Take With a Grain blog and like her on Facebook.

Have you ever reviewed someone’s blog at random or has anyone ever reached out to you with a review of your blog before? This does get the wheels in motion for me. I would love the SITS girls to review my blog, but I don’t think they are accepting any more submissions. Maybe I can run a series here where bloggers can review their favorites. Not only would we discover some new reads, but we can read about what works, what doesn’t, what could use improvement, etc. What do you think of this idea?

I think that is a fab idea. I am always looking for new blogs to read. Plus, it seems like a great community building activity.

I like it, too! I’m in if you decide to launch this. 🙂

I was thinking along the blog reviewing lines myself. I would be a eager and willing participant/reader if this goes ahead.

Thanks Charlotte!

Oh I think that’s a really fun idea Charlotte!

P. S. Your feature is tomorrow!

P.P.S. I knew we were meant to be friends when I saw your pie answer.

I’ve never reviewed someone’s blog. Period. And mostly because it’s just never occurred to me. But I love the idea. And I love finding new blogs to read when I have the time. It’s practically impossible to get in with the SITS girls and so I seen an opportunity for you. You would ROCK that and I would totally be game for it!

I think that’s a fun idea! It sounds like a great away to expand the bloggie friends I have in regular rotation. So I’m always up for new fun reads! 🙂

I love this idea. I’m always open to constructive feedback and love to discover new blogs.
