Now, I realise by writing about one of my favourite blogs I may be telling you something you already know… and what you will already know is how totally fabulous this blog is: sfgirlbybay (bohemian modern style from a San Franciso girl)
What do I know about sfgirlbybay?
Well, from what I am told on the website I know the editor and main contributor is Victoria Smith — a journalism major, a degree in interior design, photographer and all round design aficionado.
From my many, many visits to her site I know I will always find something interesting to read, something interesting to track down, gorgeous photos to inspire and many new links to send me off on a trail of discovery.
Some sites seem like the author is ticking all the boxes on “how to write a successful blog”. I never ever get that feeling here. This blog is written by a person with a true love of design, interest in fostering new designers and generally opening reader’s eyes to new approaches to design, be it interiors, photography, printmaking … you name it, the list is long.
The language is friendly and I come away feeling like I have had a visit with a friend. I don’t feel the need to visit every day, although I generally do (don’t worry, I’m not like that in real “real life”). I know if I don’t get to it one day there will just be that much more to discover next time.
I think so highly of the site I have previously advertised on it myself. If I can reach people who love what I love that’s got to be a good idea. Just so you know (and because I don’t want to fret about what you’re thinking) I don’t know Victoria and am not getting any special deals for writing this I promise. We’re upfront about things like that at Look Mama. We are.
sfgirlbybay was recently voted number ten in the Times of London Top 100 blogs in the world. How completely cool is that?
