Ali's Notepad - June 24th, 2011

Woo it's Friday! Time for me to feature your awesome posts. If you would like to view my Pinterest board with pictures & links to of all of these projects, click here.

I'm in a blogging funk. Posting every day of the week is getting pretty tiring. I think I may have to tone it down a little bit. :<

I have such blogging guilt if I don't post every day. I wonder though if posting every day is too much for readers to keep up with. What do you guys think? Okay, on with the features!

This Strawberry Cake looks so adorable. In fact I'll be making it today to use up the strawberries hanging out in my fridge. (@ Kitchen Therapy)

Zucchini Lasagna Cups look messy but so delicious. (@ A'lil Country Sugar)

One of my favorite blogs, Taylor Takes a Taste has two recent posts to check out if you are a food blogger. The three angles of photographing food and a post on making painted & stained wood backgrounds. (@ Taylor Takes a Taste)

Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting Trifle. Amazing! (@ From Cupboard to Cupboard)

These Shirley Temple Cupcakes sure are cute. (@ Siggy Spice)

Are you sick of bacon after a week of my bacon recipes? No? Good! Bacon Jam at Dinner with Julie. (@ Dinner with Julie)

A simple but delicious Cheesy Taco Pasta dish. (@ Lauren's Latest)

Oh man, does this Oreo Brownie Trifle look amazing or what? (@ Love from the Oven)

  1. I have the bacon jam on my to make list too! I have something up my sleeve...mwahahaha.

  2. The carrot cake trifle sounds amazing, and I can't wait to check out the Shirley Temple cupcakes!

  3. What a delightful gallery today -- thanks for sharing these recipes. Do you use picasa for this? Or, live writer? Other? Have a blessed weekend!

  4. I am certainly not sick of bacon yet. As usual you have found some great recipes, but I am most excited about the food photography link. That is not a blog I knew about and what a find. Thank, Ali.

  5. I can't read every blog every day. I also have guilt when I don't post, but I don't post every day. I just can't. I already feel like all I do is blog! Don't burn out - I love your blog. Slow down if you need to that's better than burning out. :)

  6. Too funny! I'm the opposite and have felt SO guilty for posting every day since changing my blog title and content. Some readers may prefer daily posting but those like me, who read a million blogs, probably prefer less. Which is why I feel guilty about posting so much--I know it would get to me (and does) as a reader. I'm trying to slow it down and at least aren't posting on the weekend but it has been hard b/c I have so many waiting to be posted! In any case, your blogs are short and sweet so I wouldn't mind them daily but don't feel bad if you can't do it.

  7. change "aren't posting" to "am not" :) I can't leave my grammar error unchecked! lol

  8. I suffer with blog guilt too if I don't post daily, but as Veronica states, serious bloggers view tons of blogs every day. I may have to reconsider and cut down my daily posting. Thank you for featuring me today.
