Here are some of the posts that have gotten my attention this week:

{Daisy} said to comment on other people’s blogs in order to get comments on yours. She’s already gotten 600+ comments this month alone, which means I should listen to her advice. In the post, she shares some of her growing pains, and the things she has learned.

hello, gorgeous

{Digital Photography School} gave me a new camera to lust after. I really want a new camera. I have a nice one, but I really want one that has removable lenses. I’d been eyeing the Fujifilm X series (the X100, in particular) because it has a really cool, retro look. But my camera-dork coworker kept telling me that it doesn’t have removable lenses so it probably isn’t worth the price tag. So, I decided I would hold off until I made enough money on the side to pay for it. Then, this little number came up in my reader. DPS says the downsides don’t exist. Now, all I need to do is win enough Amazon gift card giveaways!

spring pesto "pasta"

{Against All Grain} posted a fantastic spring pasta thing, made out of zucchini “noodles” — now I want a julienne peeler! Maybe Goodwill has one? Has anyone had cashew cream? I’m not a vegan but that looks fantastic!

{Sam at Yakezie} posted his value proposition. I really like Yakezie, and the people are super nice. I’m absolutely a newbie, and a challenger, but the forums are wonderful, they don’t let jerks come to play, and the community is unique and wonderful.

    Zucchini noodles?! That's awesome! I've had spaghetti squash as pasta, but never thought of trying other gourds. And Daisy's right….until you're HUGE and popular, you have to show the love to other bloggers :)

    Of course, I do comment people that don't comment me occasionally….just not as often.

      I love the commenting. Before I started writing, I never left comments on blogs I read, and that's too bad! It is now one of my favorite parts!

    Good you read the Yakezie Value Proposition post. I had a good time writing it and thinking about things. I believe we should all write one as it helps the readers and ourselves. Just wrote the Financial Samurai Value Proposition as well.

    Hope all is good!
