I received such a lovely email recently, from a representative of the home décor blog Be@Home; she was inviting me to be showcased in their weekly Best of the Web feature!
"I have been following your blog for the last few months and I am very impressed. I love the recipes you post, especially the one for Blueberry-Walnut Rugelach. We are always looking to feature new websites that have content relevant to our readers and would therefore love to share links with your blog."
Well, bestill my fluttering, flattered little heart!
So I went to the site to check it out before I made a decision ... wow. It made me jealous of people who have a keen eye for decorating and the talent to create beautiful crafts. It inspired me to want to become one of those people, someone who could take simple pieces and turn them into something gorgeous. It gave me the notion that I should host a fabulous dinner party, with flowers and skillfully coordinated-but-not-quite-matching dinnerware.
But -- most importantly -- Be@Home made me feel as though I could be that person with artistic flair and a sense of style. That is quite a feat! I can cook, but I'm not crafty and I don't do decorating or presentation particularly well.
As they say about themselves:
"If you’re looking for the best shopping tips, home care product reviews and top deals on home décor, you’ve come to the right place. Be@Home is Become.com’s blog source for everything you need to make your house—or apartment—look and feel like a home."
And so, I thank them for making me feel at home by featuring me on their exceptional site!
Go peruse Be@Home and all of its affiliate blogs, with great information about pets and electronics and kids and decor and cooking and whatnot, and see what you're inspired to do today ... :)
