Ladies and gents,

I realized that I totally forgot to get my Lazy on last Sunday, so I’m trying to really beef up the content for you today.  It’s going to be a bit of a mish-mash, but I’m planning some specific content areas for link posts in the very near future!

If you like Katrina Tan of Pugly Pixel, and if you think she’s a bit of a visual genius like I do, you’ll love her guest post on A Beautiful Mess: Tips for Laying out Blog Posts.

& I recently found Erin of and have to admit that her post on how to create an affordable home gym is just what I needed right now.

& Code It Pretty is a fantastic resource for all bloggers that are relatively new to design.  There are some Blogger-specific tutorials, but many involve universal concepts, like button creation and how to make more visually pleasing images.  (More kudos to Pugly Pixel – I found Code It Pretty through Katrina’s blog!)

Shannyn of Frugal Beautiful is moving back to sunny California after spending two years in Chicago, and she wants to share what she learned during her time in the Windy City.  (Also, she has a rescued pug, so you should go look at him.)

& Kaelah of Little Chief Honeybee is well known as a lifestyle and frugal fashion blogger, a photographer, a web designer, and a small-business owner, but did you know she also makes a mean cocktail?

& Not in the mood for anything alcoholic?  You should try making Kyla Roma’s Chilly Chai from Scratch!  It’s not a hard recipe at all, and you’ll have pitchers for what you would have paid for a large from Starbucks.
