Good Intentions Lead to Better Things - None of Them Mine

I have been working on a few new posts, and was a day or two away from putting up a new one when this happened.  

This is My Pixie Blog.  It's written by a Charlotte, a woman of exceptional loveliness living in Hoboken.  I had to look up where Hoboken was because it sounded a little too Lord-of-the-Rings-ish to be real.  Well, I am here to tell you it is real and it's in New Jersey, just across the state line from NYC.  I'm exposing myself as a New York noob for not knowing that, but I watched Sex and the City for the shoes and sexploits, not the geography. 

Now that I think of it, Charlotte's blog actually reminds me a bit of Sex and the City.  Sorry if you find that offensive Charlotte, please let me explain.  In both you get to witness the dating trials and tribulations of a curly haired vixen in New York while she figures out how to handle herself after the crushing bust-up of a long-term relationship.  As embarrassing as this is to admit - I did find a lot of Sex and the City relatable*.  The bonus of Charlotte's posts are that they are not only more relevant to my non-couture lifestyle, but she doesn't start every moment of self examination with "I couldn't help but wonder..."  

I love how well written and honest this blog is; Charlotte doesn't hide the not so flowery turns of events from her readers.  I've happily devoured her entire blog over the course of a few days, and each time a new post pops up on my blog roll I settle in for a great read. 

Do yourself a favour and start from the beginning.  The navigation between posts can be a little bothersome (no next post/newer post navigation), but it's totally worth the trouble.

Happy reading!

  1. I am so incredibly touched you featured my little blog over at your corner today and will do my best to pay it forward :) I have actually written up a little something for you today and hope you'll stop by and check it out. This idea has actually sparked an interest in a blog critique series which I think might be fun.

    Thank you so very much for your kind words and thoughtful review. You are absolutely right about the navigation; it's something I've noticed on other blogs and I'm not sure if it's a quick fix or not, but I would like absolutely to implement this on mine. Think it would make it much easier to go from one post to the next.

    Hope you are enjoying your week and look forward to reading more from you. I also just "liked" you on Facebook. If you like, you can find me there, too.!/MyPixieBlog

    1. I would very much like to like you Charlotte, but for some reason Facebook won't allow me to navigate to your page. Will try again later. Thanks again for the shout-out!
