Stylish Priorities

Edited by: Jennine Jacob of Independent Fashion Bloggers

Nothing like the end of the year to get you thinking. The holiday season is not only a time for giving, it’s a time for reflecting. Whether your giving lavish gifts or wondering if shopping takes away from the spirit of the season, or just plain having fun with all the holiday parties (it’s time to dress up!) this weeks links run the gamut from profound thoughts. Some of my favorites were how fashion has no age limit and just in time for New Year’s Resolutions, will losing weight make you happier? Of course there’s some excellent posts about fashion blogging, questioning reblogging and content ownership along and balancing your blog with your life.

  1. Congratulations to you, Bella, and Marissa!

    I ask myself often if I’m addicted, and if I favor my blog too much over time with hub and kids. It’s hard to tell if I’ve found a valid balance. Addiction could be seen as good custodianship (of one’s own blog. creative development, and relations with other bloggers). Choosing to spend free time on the blog could be seen as choosing to spend time on ME. Wives, partners, mamas need “me time,” too…and I just happen to choose photographing and blogging for me time over TV series, crafts, video games, baking, manis and pedis and massages…

    Sheesh, I think I’m working on my own blog entry here! Thanks for the space to hash out some thoughts.
