As I work on this spotlight, I am listening to Florence and the Machine's "Dog Days are Over." Which is the perfect song to listen to while spotlighting one of my favorite bloggers, Christy, over at A Lil' Welsh Rarebit. She has such an uncanny way of turning my day around. If I'm having a downer day, I drag my feet over to her blog until I am ready to skip away with a lighter heart.
I first met Christy via the blogosphere back in the day when my business was called "Banners By Lyndsay." Yeah. That was a few years ago... :) Christy needed a lil' facelift for her blog. And so it began. Since then, I've helped Christy shape her blog into the perfect combination of what she embodies (cheerfulness, optimism, honesty, motherhood, and honestly a lust for life).
The thing I enjoy so much about Christy is that she is honest with herself and her readers. She knows her limits and challenges, and meets them head-on. Even when she's having a hard time of things, she'll find time to post something uplifting, or email me with some personal encouragement. Christy is a sweet soul. And it shows through clearly in her blog. For me, Christy is the blog equivalent of a friend who I call when I need a good dose of "I hear ya sister," and "we're all gonna get through this together," and "my laundry and playroom are a disaster, too, but let's eat some chocolate instead..."
Did I mention she's a triathlete? She sure is. Christy made a pact to get into shape, and dove head first into the challenge (literally). And since I love to share happy news, she just found out she's expecting baby number three!
Of course I am a little biased when it comes to the design of her blog. Afterall, it's partly my handiwork. But Christy had a very clear vision of what she wanted, down to the colors, navigation, and banner design. There was just the right amount of give-and-take. She even signed up for a blog critique with us, and implemented a few of the changes to fine tune her blog all the more.
So check her out! You can find her over there in our Sweet Spot, or right HERE.
