Thank you, Elle Decor!
I was quite excited to see decor8 mentioned in the June issue of Elle Decor magazine as a blog that the Margaret Russell, Editor in Chief, considers one of her favorites. Pinch me! On the editor's page, she talks about her personal experience as she blogged during Top Design on the Bravo website and then mentions some of her favorite blogs -- Style Court, Apartment Therapy, Design*Sponge, Another Shade of Grey, decor8, Chameleon Interiors, The Cool Hunter, and The Nestmaker, so of course I'm extremely flattered to be part of that round up. :)
While reading her thoughts on blogging, I can tell she gets it, gets us, and I'm encouraged by that because when I started decor8, few even knew what a design blog was, and if you told them, they only listened to be polite. It was a lot harder to "sell" the idea of blogging back then, and to motivate myself to stay on top of decor8 and keep pressing forward. Today, many are reading design blogs, including those with impeccable taste like Ms. Russell, so it's the best time to be involved. Having her nod of approval is huge, not just to me, but to our growing community in general. We're being heard, bloggers!
Thank you Ms. Russell for showing your support, it means so much!
