Suger Coat It

While I'm stuck in a purgatory of unpacking boxes and cleaning, I thought I'd introduce a blogger friend or two.  

There has been a lot of talk around recently about blogs needing to have a "niche".  I have to say I'm not sure I agree with this as I much prefer blogs that are varied.  I like to know about people, what they're up to, where they live, what they love.  So, while I'm stuck in a purgatory of unpacking boxes and cleaning, I thought I'd introduce a blogger friend or two, that fit my favourite "non-niche" niche perfectly.
Meet Melissa, aka "Suger".

Who are you?   Melissa Walker Horn.  Blogger, business owner, wife, daughter, sister, friend, wannabe mum, social media addict - not necessarily in that order.

Your blog? Suger Coat It – www.sugercoatit.com

What do you blog about?  I blog about life and the things that make it sweet. Family, fun, health and lifestyle and fashion. I also cover a lot of blogger and blogging type subjects. There is no constant topic on my blog. The only consistent is me.

What has been your most popular blog post?  Hits wise it’s an offhanded one I wrote about My Family Stickers. Just a thought I had one day that I blogged. More recently my post about the phrase ‘real woman’ has been REALLY popular. And I love both for totally different reasons.

Do you read other people's blogs?  Errr, yes. I have 726 currently in my reader. I visit most weekly. I have some favourites I visit daily or for every new post.

What do you like in a blog, and can you share two of your favourites?  Just TWO! I couldn’t. But what makes me go back to a blog time after time is an easy to read layout, upbeat content {If I wanted to read constant complaining I’d stay on facebook} and a real insight into who the author is. Pretty pictures help too.

I asked Melissa for a random photo, and this is what she sent.  Her sister's dog interrupting a photo shoot.

If you have stopped by, it would be lovely if you could leave a comment or just say hello so I know that you've been here. Thank you!

  5. Thanks so much for introducing me to Melissa and Sugar Coat it. I'm with you on that one, I totally go for blogs that have varied content. I love ones that I can feel like I've popped in to have a cuppa and a chat about 'stuff'. Easy to read, with great pics gets me in every time. Love your blog and good luck with the moving in and unpacking...have fun with it! Alison x
