June in Review

Trying out a new monthly recap post, that I am sure I stole from someone. Nothing is ever really new on the internet, so let’s just call it new to me. I thought I might highlight things I liked on the internet this month, as well as my most popular post, any news, favorite books (mine and Spencer’s) and maybe a favorite picture. The topics will change monthly. Super fun! And what better month to try it out than Birthday Month. Woot!

My most popular posts (per Google Analytics):
Goat Cheese and Chocolate Strawberries
Semantics of Motherhood (The interesting thing about this post is the comment per page view percentage is 0.01%)

My favorite post (of my own):
Thoughts on Turning 40 (and the strawberries, of course)

Blogging Tips:
How to Write an About Me Page (via SITS)
Seven Trends in Blogger Business Cards (via momcomm)
Photography Tips/Challenges:
I’m loving the photo challenge that Kristi and Alicia are hosting. It is continuing in July, so go check it out. (via live and love… out loud)

Great Posts:
License Plate, Catchy Song, Failed Slogan, Nevertheless I Appear in Photographs. I am still thinking about her comments about mostly thin bloggers posting full length photographs of themselves on their blogs. (via Swistle)
My Son is a Sponge I obsess about gender issues and raising Spencer all the time, so I really related to this post by TMae. (via LifeVersion2.0)

Crafts/Decor:
Are you on pinterest? You should be. Go forth and pin. Let me know if you need an invite. (The link is to my crafts I am never going to make but admire board.)

Food:
Uli Westphal: Fruit Au Naturale (via (a)Musing Foodie)
Lemon Crunch Pie (via Bebehblog)
Pop Stars Amazing user submitted photos of Cake Pops. The Yo Gabba Gabba ones are a must see (Via Bakerella)

    I’ve had your Semantics of Motherhood post open since you posted it. I’ve been trying to formulate a response. Apparently I think my response must be Pulitzer worthy…

    Happy day, to you!
