July Blog Roundup


In the spirit of June’s fave five, here are my picks for July.

MarshalN wrote this terrific post On Tea Blogs and their importance. He attempts to answer an interesting question – why bother?

  1. Oh, whoa! So this is where the traffic boost is coming from! Thanks, Nikhil!

  2. Nice name! Although I just read the comments on your post about it, and can see your brother’s point of view too 😉

  3. New blogs to read! Delightful!

  4. Welcome back Tess!!
