Technical Difficulties & Metal Linky Party

I hadn’t intended on posting tonight but wanted to make you aware of a little email glitch that I was recently made aware of. (Thank you, Donna!)

It seems that intermittently over the span of a four day period,
emails going to weren’t automatically forwarded to my normal Mail account as they should have been and I didn’t read them.

I’m catching up on them, so if you asked a question, it should be answered tonight.

I’ll be back tomorrow for another post in the Vintage Chic Style Series.
I’ll share how I mix vintage, industrial, and modern metals to create vintage chic style in my home.

And you don’t want to miss Thursday’s post. I couldn’t talk about metal without input from Donna at Funky Junk Interiors. She has written an awesome guest post for the rust-lovin’, industrial bunch.

On Saturday, I’ve decided to host a “Metal Saturday ” linky party for you to share your own little collections of metal whether it’s shiny, rusty, faux, vintage, modern…
I’d thought it would make a fancy, virtual curio cabinet of sorts!

I’d be ever appreciative if you grabbed a button and helped spread the word.

If you do, thank you!
(…and thank you if you don’t. I’ll still love you.)

Due to “scraper” websites that earn revenue by scraping feeds (like an automatic copy & paste) and stealing the creative content of others, I can no longer provide FULL blog posts via email subscriptions. I apologize that you now see a partial post and have to click over to my blog for the rest. I try to create lovely and original content so I appreciate your understanding. If you don’t, I am sorry to see you leave and thank you for being a part of my journey while you were subscribed. {Jami}

  2. Oh my sweet girl, I love that photo of the tea pot and the idea of “Metal Saturday”!! I’ll be there!! Oh, and I know exactly how you feel about self-doubt when it comes to blogging. I feel like that every so often as well. But you have nothing to doubt, you are the sweetest and kindest blog gal out here, and super talented to boot! I just adore you and your lovely blog!! Your support that you have lent to me over the past few months has been incredible and I will never forget that!
    I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
    Talk to you soon.

  4. Lisa says:

    I hope your blogger doubt goes away. I think we all experience it sometimes, you’re not alone. Thank you for party hosting. Great party idea. I’ll put your button my sidebar.

  6. Gloria says:

    I success! Now I have the button in my blog, you can count on me (I thougth I couldn’t, I’m very clumsy with computers…)

  7. Love the metal linky party idea Jami! Just another good one coming from this little ol blog of yours….don’t listen to the buggers in your head,
    you have a great blog!

  8. Aw. Thank you girls! I appreciate your encouragement more than you know! I’m an all or nothing kind of girl so if I can only give something 75%, I get frustrated. Thanks for loving the 75% regardless. Love ya.


  9. What a great shapely pot! Looking forward to seeing more. We all have the doubt now and then. You have no reason for any though as your blog is doing so well and I love coming here! :)

  10. I love the metal Saturday link party idea – how creative Jami :) I believe I have “few” entries!

  11. I will be sure to grab your button Jami!!;) Please dont have blogger doubt my friend~ YOU are one of the most talented AND sweet bloggers in blogland!!! HUGS,Rachel

  12. I love the idea of a Metal linky party. I grabbed your badge and am spreading the word!! Love your blog!!!

  13. Hi Hi! Dont get blogger insecurity! I stopped updating my blog because I got no comments and felt like I was writing to the black hole called the internet! Fear not, I read your blog and really like it!

    You know you shouldn’t doubt yourself..You are awesome and you know you are my hero. Doubt is just another way of the world telling you to go with the ebbs and flows of life..Everything for a reason. You are special Jami, and I hope you know that you are always gonna be #1 in my heart. Love you girl:)

  15. Jami, I’m all for following your heart. If it’s a blog break you need to mull things over, take it!

    If you need to earn income, look into advertising networks that can help pay your way and consider sponsors.

    The most important thing is to be happy. At times I want to quit, but then find my way tapping keys again.

    Figure out what your goals are, and whether or not they include blogging or not. You’ll then have your answer. Blogging is tied to your sales, so that’s one reason to hang in there if you wish to continue that trend.

    Off to go advertise your metal party! :)
