So I think she can blog!

This was harder that what I had anticipated...
You guys are truly talented and fabulous in your own ways.
SO it was until a few minutes ago that I was visiting my five top favorites and I finally looked at the clock and I said to myself... what a wonderful world you better make a decision if you want to go anytime soon to bed.

 So I am going to say it:
Erin, I L♥VE that you blog!

So, why do I think this girl can blog...?
 Here are some of my reasons:

 I adore Erin's blog!  Her sweet site makes me simply happy.
The colors, the projects and ideas and her choices of features are GREAT and that is why
 I follow her blog!


In my opinion, one of the reasons that sets How to Nest for Less a part is how organized Erin's blog is.
With just one click you can jump to a page packed with inspiration...
She has inspired me to do better in this department... :(

I believe a good blog is one that has the power to keep you there for more than 60 seconds.
Often I am on the run but for some reason when I visit How to Nest for Less  I am not in a hurry... I want to stay and see what is new!
I really enjoy her Friday's features!

 I know that the author of the blog is Erin.
Duh! Not so duh!
Do you know how many anonymous blogs are out there? 
 If I tell you the truth it makes me a little crazy when I click in the "about me" tab and I see everything but the name of the author.
Am I weird?
I like to get to know you guys...  I love the old fashion Hi, my name is....

This girl has talent...
 I really like visiting  blogs with great features but I REALLY  LOVE  visiting blogs where I can see as well the CREATIONS of the authors... Your own taste and the way you guys do things inspires me the most.
What I adore about her projects is that it is like a buffet of creativity, a taste of many things...

Check OUT that wall!


Fashion Accessories:
I want to make this for my girls...

...and Yummyness!


So Erin I am giving to you the....
36th Avenue


So you think you can blog?

This is how it works… Each month I host a link party that will last the entire month and will be found on my sidebar...
Those participating will share their blog… {not one little project} I am talking about the entire pie here…
I will visit every single one of them… {I promise} but from all of the entries I will choose just two blogs to feature on mine… One blog will be featured the 15th of each month and the other one the last day of the month…
The two winners will get a full post from me on The 36th Avenue.
Why? Because I crave EXTRAORDINARY!
I am talking about a serious love letter from me about your site…
I will create a post with my favorite items from your blogs, and share my love about it with everyone I know in Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and of course here… Wait I am not done... I will also display your Blog Button on my Sidebar until a new winner is chosen two weeks later.
To enter the party I just have three tiny little rules….
 if you don’t I will have to delete your entry...
and I really don't want to do this.

I would love to get to know as many bloggers as possible,
 so share the love on your sidebar!

36th Avenue

Follow The 36th AVENUE blog and on Facebook!
{These are the best places for me to reach everyone, easy and fast… Love it!}

HAVE FUN GIRL…and show me you can blog!

NOTE:  Keep in mind that this party DOES NOT replace The Share YOUR Awesomeness one...

OMG!!! I seriously just screamed at my office desk :) THANK YOU so much for featuring my blog!!! It's so hard to balance work, being a mommy & wife and blogging sometimes, but acknowledgment like this makes it all worth while! Seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You know I'm a HUGE fan of yours as well :) You always inspire me to kick it up a notch! Thank you!

PS...I am soooo glad you mentioned the 'no name' thing.

That is such a pet peeve of mine. You create a about yourself, your family, us your home, but don't want us to know your name????

What is that about???

I tend to not follow nameless people or as Jerry Seinfeld would call them..."no namers"

Thanks for the party! I was already following Erin, but not you...all that has changed now :). I saw you on FB.

Love the new party! Your posts are always so creative, I love reading them. I can't wait to link up to this...but I think I'll wait 'til next month.
Still feeling guilty about taking off the month of August!!!!

I cannot wait to go check out Erin's blog. I am right there with you wanting to know who is the writer of a blog. Sometimes I will search and search for the person's/writers name. Haha. Love that you do this party! You are seriously so clever

ha ha ha that is kinda crazy that you wouldn't share your name? Thanks for hosting the party :) Can't wait to check out Erin's blog! I'm pretty partial to the name Erin; it's a pretty good name ;)

Thanks for all your great inspiration. I deleted my link by accident before and reposted it. Sorry. I didnt know what the little x was next to my picture. Duhhh.
Thanks again for helping me make my blog a little better each day.

This is such a cool idea. I only wish I would have thought of it! I'm having fun "meeting" these other bloggers & enjoying their blogs. I agree - I like to know a little about the blogger {name, photo, etc!}.

Warmly, Michelle
