I’ve been blogging for QUITE some time now soooooooooo let’s just say I know a thing or two…or even THREE for that matter…about this Blogosphere and the greats that reside there!
Truth be told, there are SO many UH-mazing bloggers out there making me a mere peon in their world of sorts trying to perfect my craft on a platform all my own! However, similar to swimming in a tank filled to the brim with like 1.289 BILLION Cullen Jones’, it can be a bit overwhelming and oftentimes challenging, but nonetheless, EXTREMELY fulfilling, rewarding, and down right AWE-FREAKING-SOME!
That being said, I’d like to celebrate those greats whom I happen to be doing the breast stroke with! Yes, I enjoy their posts, and yes, their website layouts are mighty cool, but overall, their creative minds, content, and messages they convey are what peak my interest even more! Therefore, I hope you all take the time to visit their websites and see why I find them as charming as I do! Oh yeah, you know the deal – Tell ’em Shimmy sent ya… & tell Cullen I’d like to whisper in his ‘Swimmers Ear’… 😉
Layout look familiar? Yeah, Shimmy must confess – I stole some layout tips & tricks from Miss Karen! No worries, I told her and she was PERFECTLY fine with it! Besides all that thievery, however, I’d like for all of my San Francisco Shimmy’s to check out her blog for all things to do & see in Cali’s own ‘Bae Area .’ Karen makes sure to keep you up to date and always on beat with the hottest eateries and events to make your stay or visit worthwhile!
