We just celebrated Memorial Day in the US which is the unofficial kickoff to summer.
If you’re in the US I hope you enjoyed some BBQ’d goodness and some fireworks—which I hear looks so much better through nature’s camera—your eyeballs, and not your phone. Wink, wink.
The same goes for sunsets.
Today I have a roundup of your favorite blog posts ever on one of my favorite topics—BLOGGING!
