Blog it Forward!

Amazing Victoria at sfgirlbybay has been organizing this awesome blogger mashup called “Blog it Forward” with 300 blogs from all over the world (!) and it is starting this Wednesday, February 10th… and I am proud to be the one of the starters!!!

Basically, we each post about “what inspires you personally” and passing it to the next blog everyday (except weekends) from Wednesday on. (See the full list of the blogs and the schedule here) As Victoria is hoping, “the spirit of this is to share some new and maybe not as well-known blogs, so i hope everyone finds some new inspiration!” I also hope that the spirit will carry through and that everyone finds inspiration everyday :)

Stay tuned on what inspires ME this Wednesday…! Thank you, Victoria!!

sfgirlbybay Launches

Good morning! Hope everyone had a nice weekend…

Over the weekend, lovely Victoria, Randy and I finally launched sfgirlbybay! We’ve been working on this new site for a long time so seeing it’s actually live makes me so happy :) When she said “let’s go live” I felt like the wedding day finally arrived or something because we’ve been planning for a long time, making sure all the details one by one, and yes, it was stressful at some point when I had to deal with PHP and CSS madness, and of course it was such a fun process designing and awesome to work with Victoria (like old days! It’s really fun to work with her!), and the launch was just beautiful! We are still working things out here and there, but I think she is happy and she is getting lots of good comments from her readers and that really makes me happy.

Her new home. Very clean and I love the color scheme she decided to go with. It has a really nice feeling and makes me want to spend more time here.


I love how all the categories are organized by polaroid films! So cute and so Victoria.


and of course, her famous “Sunday in the City” has its own section.


and there are more nice features…

If you haven’t already, please go to and look around her new site, you will have a great time. Congratulations, Victoria!!! Cheers to you, your successful blog and many more years to come!!!
