1st Stop: October Blogging

We had a few good reads this month on the blog. If you’re into photos, I suggest checking out the post about what I couldn’t take my eyes off of at the Hermitage Museum.

If you’re the kind of person that digs videos, have a peek at my two new ones: The One Thing You Forget to Pack and A Word About Money Belts to Those Who Misuse Them.

Story lovers will enjoy any of the following:

2nd Stop: Weekend Snaps

I took a break from weekend snaps this month, but I hope to start them up again in November. Stay tuned.

3rd Stop: Favorite Comments

In response to my post about my photo essay involving traveling across niches:

I think of all the niches out there, blogging about traveling has to be the most time consuming. It’s not as simple as doing a bit of research, reading a few articles and then crafting your own article about the subject; you actually have to go out and DO the activity. And then, while you’re traveling, you’re constantly thinking about taking great pictures, taking notes, thinking of funny stories for your blog and it starts to feel a little too much like work. Ultimately you end up needing a vacation from your traveling (all the while wondering if your vacation would make a great write up lol). It can be so taxing! I think making time for yourself, for a new hobby and meeting people outside of your niche is a breath of fresh air. It recharges you, gives you new ideas and can rekindle your passion for your niche.

In response to my post on toilet adventures:

This would be terrible! After fifteen years of marriage I still don’t even like it when my husband hears me pee!

5th Stop: What’s Hot on Facebook

This question: If you could move to any country in the world, where would it be, and why?

6th Stop: BvtW News

Not much new has been happening in my world. I went to the Problogger conference, which I’m sure you’ve already read about, and I’m gearing up for a trip to the States soon! Other than that, just enjoying the warmer weather that is gracing Sydney as summer approaches.

What’s news with you?
