I Do Now I Don’t Wins Most Inspiring Blog

Posted on February 11th, 2009 by Monica

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Without further a do, I give you I Do Now I Don’t. This is a great blog that started from a very sad story. This is one guy who was handed lemons and chose to make lemonade.

The concept of this blog is something I haven’t seen before. He started a great little company helping people sell their engagement rings that for whatever reason aren’t needed anymore. This is a great way to get fabulous jewelry at very discounted prices while helping someone out of a jam.

Finding creative ways to help others inspires me.

Make sure to read his story.

The Pink Book Blog Wins Best Use of Photos Award

Posted on February 5th, 2009 by Monica

I am a sucker for great photos, and The Pink Book Blog has fabulous photos. The whole site is total eye candy.

They call themselves the pink ladies. These four pink ladies have a great eye. With four different personalities contributing to the blog they have a wide range of great topics that they cover. I could spend hours perusing through their archives. This is one blog that is a must read.

I would tell you to subscribe to their feed, but they don’t seem to have one. What a shame.

Totem Travel Awarded Best Honeymoon Blog Award

Posted on January 28th, 2008 by Monica

I’ve been looking for so long for a great honeymoon blog because there’s so much junk relating to honeymoons and travel blogs. This one includes travel logs, pictures, and not only locations but actual hotel and destination reviews. For example, check out this post on the Best Sandals Resort.

What I like most about this blog is the extensive information and photos to exotic locations! Yay.
