Programming Note: GOMI Liveblogged Blogger Book Reviews

Happy Monday, hams! I’m trying to figure out why the internet turns into a pit of boring every single year around the beginning of April and I have to assume it’s just spring fever. So in order to combat this intarwebs slump, and because we all had a such fun last time, I have decided to do Liveblogged Blogger Book Reviews as a semi-regular feature.

I just put in an order to Amazon for the following:

- Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook for the Digital Generation by Brit Morin
- Design Mom: How to Live with Kids: A Room-by-Room Guide by Gabrielle Stanley Blair
- Cupcakes and Cashmere at Home by Emily Schuman
- Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create & Give Joy by Joy Cho

I’ve saved the next Young House Love book and the second Ramshackle Glam book to order as their release date approaches. It would obviously be delightful if I could get blogger books early all the time, but eh no big deal. I have no problem buying them and then mailing them on to one of you hams when I’m done.

Design Mom liveblogged book review will happen Wednesday afternoon! Are there any other blogger books I should add to my list?




Gluten-Free Girl Is Selling Flour And Other Snackable News Content

Gluten-Free Girl has a shop up on her site to sell that Kickstarter flour she was going to produce. 2 1/2 lbs of her super special flour will cost you about $26 with shipping. That seems reasonable.

Young House Love‘s second book Lovable Livable Home: How to Add Beauty, Get Organized, and Make Your House Work for You is evidently going forward despite the closure of their blog. It is up for pre-order on Amazon.

Love Taza begins encroaching on World Famous Author Natalie Jean’s Brooklyn Hipster kingdom by announcing she’s ‘in Williamsburg’ working on ‘something exciting’.

Super successful blogger The Feminist Breeder is having a personal debate about whether to accept a real job or continue being broke and selling off her stuff on craigslist.

Some fashion blogger named Mimi G is taking herself on a “multi-city tour” to teach you how to be a successful blogger. I’ve never heard of her, so I will not be signing up.

And CecilyK, ‘snackable content’ expert, will be taking her hair to NMX in order to speak about being a successful content marketer. Because when people think of success, they think of Cecily Kellogg for sure.

Whole Pantry Empire Begins To Crumble

The Whole Pantry, the app and community created by magical mystery cancer lady Belle Gibson, appears to be unraveling. The app is apparently no longer found on the Apple App Store – and publisher Penguin has pulled the ‘Whole Pantry’ book.

…we have been left with no other option but to stop supplying the book in Australia. We remain hopeful that we will receive the formal assurances we have requested in the coming days…

Since Belle’s instagram has been emptied of photos and the Whole Pantry facebook page seems to be unavailable, media outlets can only continue to wait for some sort of statement from Belle about what exactly is going on.

SOMI: Pattern Behavior

It’s been a while, but I had to give you a SOMI with which to kill your Friday lunch hour.


Behold, “Pattern Behavior“. You crafting/sewing forum folks will love it, but I’m having some hearty chuckles myself. Enjoy!

NatalieNow Is Just Like A Homeless Person

Natalie Hill Jensen, her ring, look at it, apparently still hasn’t had time to get her big rebrand off the ground. I guess she’s too busy escaping her married life in BFE Utah in order to ride around the NYC subways.


Her ring! Look at it! And then scratch your head as you try to figure out what eating two donuts on a subway – while on your way to eat even more food – has to do with being “like a homeless person”.
