Does this look familiar?
Have you figured out who she is yet?
Many of us “veteran bloggers” cut our teeth on this whimsical and colorful blog.
Some of you may never have heard of her. For she stopped posting on this blog in 2011.
She began it in 2006. September 2006 in fact.
She was legendary in the home and garden genre of blogging. She took gorgeous photos, and we hung on every color-filled one.
In case you haven’t guessed by now, which means you are a fairly new blogger, she is Kim of Dear Daisy Cottage.
I can’t really put my finger on it, but she had a way of taking photos at all angles that mesmerized us.
She could take a photo of a bowl of cereal and it looked magical.
I told myself I’d just grab a few of her photos to spotlight.
But her blog is kind of like a bag of potato chips. You can’t stop at just one.
So I just kept digging farther and farther into her posts.
Kim was a blogging icon back in those days. She showed us that color was to be embraced.
And embrace it we did. Those of us that are lovers of color.
Thanks Kim, for being at the forefront of colorful blogs. We miss you.
Wherever you are, whatever you’ve chosen to do, we bloggers that followed your every post will never forget what you taught us, even though you probably weren’t trying to.
Color is magical. The gift that keeps on giving.
And we thank you for helping us learn that.
