Blog Envy

I have been looking around the blog-o-sphere and I am jealous. I have a sever case of blog envy. Some of you have some truly awesome blog lay-outs and designs. I only wish I had the talent to pull this off.

Blogging is a hobby for me. Yes in the past I have lamented that I do not have a hobby but this is one that has developed. As a hobby it's role is cheap entertainment to keep me occupied during my unemployment. We can also call this therapy. In this role, I have no $$$ to put into making this pretty and I don't have the technical skills to do it myself. So until I am employed or my blog starts producing serious $$ I will have to learn to be satisfied with what I have.

So I am moving forward. I am going to try not to be jealous any longer. Instead, let me point you to some blogs, in no particular order that I have come across recently that I love the aesthetics (I like the content too but that is a different story). I apologize that I don't have a cool button or award to give, but I hope you visit them to show your love as well.

I know there are more blogs out there that look fantastic. Feel free to let me know which blogs you love the most (for the looks not the content). I am always looking for ideas as I dream of my perfect blog.


  1. I'm with you. I don't really want to spend any money on mine either! I use LeeLou's blogs. There's a link on my blog. And it's FREE!

  2. Awww thank you. I used to use layouts from Cutest Blog on the Block, but I would always make my own header. I got tired of doing it, so I decided to just pay someone. I hope to get back to playing with the laoyout more myself at some point...but for now, it's just easier for me to pay someone else. LOL! I wish my blog made me money...LOL! That would be nice. :) Hope you have an awesome week and thanks again for the link love. :)

  3. I have suffered from blog envy too. But I don't have the money to hire someone to design my blog or the time to figure out how to do something different myself. So I have decided to be content with what I have. I have found some really great blogs out there too!

  4. Thanks for including me! Remember that I'm giving away a blogger template on my blog from the girl who did mine!
