Blog Spotlight: My Everything Corner

Have you ever heard the expression “Keep it simple, Stupid.”? The phrase might be cheeky, but I think that keeping it simple is the key to writing a blog about a variety of topics. It’s not always easy finding readers who want to commit to your blog, so if you’re offering a combo platter of topics, bite-sized posts keep them coming back for more.

This is a metaphor that really describes my favorite blog of the month. My Everything Corner covers a variety of topics like gardening, cake decorating, scrap booking, jewelry design and running an Etsy store. It’s a great mom blog, with lots of examples of fun activities for school aged kids.

With all of these different themes, you’d think it would be hard to keep up, but the author, Andrea of Blue Jeans Jewelry, keeps things simple. Each post is a little morsel of warm thoughts and good ideas. Reading My Everything Corner feels a lot like getting a postcard from your favorite pen pal.

With a crisp, clean layout, My Everything Corner doesn’t feel like a shopping mall, but more like the foyer of a spa. You’re just listening to quiet music and drinking cucumber water, and catching up on some light reading. Sounds like a great way to spend the day!
