Over the last few years, I have immensely enjoyed receiving my Better Homes & Gardens magazine and flipping through to see how many bloggers I know! Turning to the back cover and looking at the “I did it” feature reveals a fellow friend and blogger well over 60% of the time. Yay for bloggers and yay for magazines who feature bloggers!
For many of us who blog professionally, being featured in a national magazine is a fun “feather in the cap”. I have been so proud of all of my bloggy friends and colleagues and all of their many “feathers”! I’ve been featured several times on BHG’s online site, but I’ve never had the honor of being in print. Well don’t blink because you might miss me, but I made a very teeny-tiny cameo in the August BHG. You can find my tips in the article, 30 Budget Decorating Tips & Tricks. Yes, I wish it was my kitchen being featured instead of my tips, but I’ll take it! It’s also fun being in the same article as my good friend’s Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick and Melissa from The Inspired Room. The article is bursting with bloggers, so be sure to notice!
Also in this issue is my lovely friend Sandra from Sawdust Girl and her daughter’s room makeover! The August issue is BHG’s budget decorating issue, so it’s filled to the gills with bloggy goodness.
I’m so glad that our niche continues to receive national recognition for all of our hard work, tips, and tutorials! Keep it up DIY/Home bloggers, and thank you magazine editors for noticing :).
