The blog world is endless and ever expanding. People become friends across the country and world, through their love of food, fashion, science and more. I am fairly new to the writing blogging world but not to the following blog world. Although my reading has increased dramatically since I have started to write. In my reading I am discovering how amazing it is. Food bloggers and the friends they have made through blogging are reaching out to help each other. Many food bloggers are uniting together for Jennie - In Jennie's Kitchen , a food blogger who recently lost her husband. Bloggers are helping to raise money by creating auctions on their sites for baskets, photos, prints, paintings and more, It's fantastic. You may not know her and I don't know either, but her blog is wonderful, refreshing and real. Check it out at the link above and the other sites helping to raise money @ Bloggers without Borders.
This out reach from so many great bloggers makes me want to help you see other great blogs on the web. I am just starting to get into Pinterest. For those who have never heard of it, it's a site where you can bookmark or "pin" favorite photos and links to articles, blogs, recipes etc you have seen on the Internet. You create your own boards to post pictures on to and you can follow other people and what they are pining on their boards. It is basically another avenue to check out the delicious, beautiful and crafty items that are on the web. I am trying to maneuver through it and get used to it as there are also so many other categories other than food. There is gifts, travel, fashion, science, people, nature, home and more. It is quite cool.
In efforts to get used to pinterest, explore the web, bookmark some great photos and recipes and spread the blogging for others, I am introducing "The Five Friday Pin Up" Every Friday I will let you know my five favorite items that I have pinned or repinned this week from other blogs and places on the web.
Check it out! You can follow my boards, Sweettwist_Meg - just like my twitter name.
