Let's mix things up!

>> 2.26.2010

So in efforts to tidy my blog up a bit yesterday, I accidentally erased my template completely (d’oh!). Bye-bye tabs and three column format… :(. Since it looks like I’ll be spending a bit of time this weekend fixing things up, I thought I might as well work on the blogroll as well. So, just like I did in my 100th post, I’m asking you all to create the blogroll by sharing your own blogs! I’m starting from scratch here, so make sure you join up even if you were on the list before. Just leave a comment in today’s post with the following:

1. blog name*
2. type of blog (home decorating, cooking, thrifty, personal, etc)
3. blog's web address
4. Tell me anything else you want to share with me. Is there something you wish I would write more about?
*Please, only share if you update regularly.

Mine would say:

Thrifty Little Blog
a thrifty lifestyle blog
I wish that you would write more about your finished projects and less about all of the mistakes you make (if only...).
Please, don’t feel shy! I want people to find your amazing blog!!
