So interesting! Lots of great points. I really try and do mostly original material, even though I get lots of PR requests.

Can't wait until tomorrow's installment.

Hi gals!
Another great podcast. I love hearing what happens with PR companies approaching you and how you handled overlapping posts with other bloggers. It happens alot I know. The best thing about this?.....I can listen and still do my work at the same time! When I have to read the blogs....I can't get anything else done. This is GREAT!!!!!!!

Joni's voice makes me picture Tammy Faye Bakker.

Hello Ladies, I think it's so important for all of us not to self-censor too much - I love to read the authentic voice and experience the 'real' personalities of bloggers! Great topic. I listen to your podcasts while I work on other things here in my office. On that note: for those who feel that the podcasts are too long - I say nay - if you are surfing, blogging and checking in on all your favorite blogs, well then yes - 20 minutes is too long, but if you put the podcasts aside to listen to while you file or do paperwork or sketch or fold laundry - then 60 minutes would keep me riveted!!! You can also open a new browser and listen to the roundtable while you check emails.

Oops, I meant to write the above comment on the snarkery podcast. Oh well. As for content, I just go with my gut and what's interesting to me at that moment. As you know I always wanted to run a Lifestyle magazine in the real world, so when I met blogging I thought - my word - this is great - I can blog about any damn topic I want!

Anon at 9:09 - not sure about TFB's voice, but lovely Joni sure doesn't LOOK like her. Thanks for your insightful input, tho!

You should see my mascara!! OY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lauren said...

really interesting... I've also thought a lot about the different "design blogging groups" there seem to be & how I need to branch out more.... But the scary thing is, how do you find the time? I get so loyal to the blogs I read now, that I feel guilty when I can't read & comment every day!!
For my content I usually just start writing about whatever's on my mind design-wise at the time I sit down to write. I often find myself planning posts in my head & then never actually write them.

great info!! really enjoying this!! :)

Oh better late than never right? How sad that I haven't been able to squeeze in 17 minutes to just sit, breathe and listen until now.

I began my blog for my own self. As a way of documenting my life and I never dreamed so many people would read it. Your comments today have me thinking that I might start a second private blog for my family stuff and just leave Decor to Adore as a public blog.
Thanks for the insight.
