My Own 'Little Known Lovelies'

Ok, so I'm probably about to commit serious bloguera crime but I have been pretty cheesed off all day.

What the fudge is wrong with people?

Basically, on a well-known blog elsewhere there was a competition to allow unknown blogs to post commentary and hopefully be selected as an 'up and coming piece of inspiring beauty'.

The winners?


Just another whole bunch of girly girls writing about how inspiring a pretty picture they found of a vintage tutu is. Is anyone else completely sick and tired of reading about how the colour yellow brightened up someone's soul? Or people who simply take pictures off FLICKR and write a small comment about how wonderful and magical they are?

I'm not saying that I should have won. HEAVENS! I'm a lazy blogger with not a lot to say at the moment but at least I take my own pictures and refrain from writing tedious things about fairy dust and magical stars/inspiring cups of tea.

The kind of people that should be recognised are people who create their own pictures, prose, handmade items or delicious dishes.

So here is my shortlist for best, upcoming blogs that actually have some kind of character: (I think this one is private though) (A lovely, different blog by a lovely lady) (This lady is not up and coming. She has already mastered blog land but she is sweet, kind and honest) (Handy and helpful craft advice!) (this girl is SO very nice) (Amazingly witty and well-written) (My sister and dreamboat) (This girl is better than sliced bread)


  1. Oh Sally you sausage, thanks for the mention. I know what you mean about blogs at the moment. Why do people just champion girls blogs who post pictures of what they wear every day? Gah, too easy. X

  2. Yeah I have to agree with you too. I get a bit tired of some blogs that churn out the same thing about a flower or a picture from flickr. I enjoy the sentiments, don't get me wrong but I lose enthusiasm after a while... So many wonderful blogs out there to read and so little need to try and keep your subject matter fresh and interesting (and well written) if possible to maintain your readership...but then again...some people just write for their own enjoyment and don't care about others so if it makes them happy just let them be...Will have a look at these blogs soon buttonmoon! xxx

  3. Now I feel incredible pressure to write a terribly well-written and witty comment.

    I am 100% with you. I hate it when there are posts of some pictures saying "OMG I LOVE these pictures". Wow. Thanks for that.

    Now. Thank you for le shout out and all the other blogs I can add to my ever-growing list of blogs I read.
