Holiday reading part 1


If you're like me the thought of your favourite blogs shutting up shop for the holidays is causing your palms to sweat and your heart rate to rise. Without you're daily fix what are you to do? I have the same addiction. Last Christmas when I was new to the blogosphere I went into withdrawal when the few bloggers I was reading then went on well deserved holidays. So with that in mind I've put together a holiday reading list. Some of these blogs are brand new. Others have been around for much longer. Some you will know, others you won't. There are interior design blogs, graphic design, home renovation and some much more. They come from all over the world and not all are in english. I'm a long time lurker on a few and others I've only found in the past few days. By no means exhaustive this list hopefully will help you fill those "empty" days. Part 2 is still to come.

P.S. Medical authorities warn that gorging on new blogs may be a health hazard. Take your time. There's lots in their archives and there are even more new blogs on their blog rolls. Click on the banners to go directly to the blog.

Aw shucks! Thanks for the linky-poo. I was wondering why I was suddenly getting all this traffic from your (fabulous) blog.

I am enjoying others on your list I hadn't discovered yet! Thanks again.

This is awesome! Thank you for posting this. Though I am already an avid reader of some of these blogs, you have opened up to my eyes to some fabulous new ones.

This list is dangerous though as on my xmas wrapping downtime- I AM going to gorge myself on them! :)
