Introducing a Series!

As a newbie myself, I have often had questions about blogging.  There is so much to learn.  To me, the best people to ask are other bloggers at various experience levels.

So, I decided to gather some successful design bloggers here to share their insights on blogging.

Each Thursday for six weeks, beginning tomorrow, we will be highlighting guest bloggers in our “Before the Paparazzi” series.


We?  Yes, Tammy from Type A Decorating and I have been collaborating on our first series!  We will both have a series of bloggers at various experience levels share with our readers what it was like to get started. Our guest bloggers will choose from a list of questions to answer and will write a Q&A style post.
