Blogger Bombardment: August 2

One of the great things about being a blogger is that you get to read other bloggers. I guess technically you don’t have to be a blogger to do that, but I feel you get more invested when you’ve got a baby of your own. Paul is so lucky to have me because usually I’ll bombard him with about 12 send him a link a day about something awesome I’ve found.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to your own blogger bombardment! Is that too obnoxious of a title? I might keep it. It’s pretty nice alliteration, you must admit! Give me your thoughts. I can’t be the only one that finds these posts and gets insanely click happy…right?

Travel Links
