The Man Behind La Dolce Vita

la dolce vita blog - man behind the blog

Ooh, I’m so excited for today’s Man Behind the Blog. I consider Paloma Contreras something of a blogging goddess and idol, and I know many of you do too. I mean, for one thing, La Dolce Vita was basically the first blog I ever read. And second, not only has Paloma been part of the blogging community for over six year and a half years (!!), she’s still producing wonderful, inspiring content that’s made her a permanent fixture in my RSS feeds. I can remember reading about her traveling adventures with her husband Fabian many, many moons ago, and was so pumped when he agreed to being featured here today.

What say you, Vincent?  Read the full post +

You know how some blogs just make you happy? That’s what Sarah’s blog does for me. Maybe it’s the gorgeous photography — always bright, cheerful, luminous. Actually, much like Sarah herself. I always love stopping by A House in the Hills for great natural living tips, beautiful recipes (that always encourage me to eat better and take care of myself), Sarah’s trademark, too-cool style, and also, for one of my favorite posts on a blog, ever. She’s mentioned her sweet husband Lou many times, and they’ve always seemed like two (extraordinarily talented) peas in a pod, so I couldn’t wait to hear what a photographer might have to say about blogging! Here’s Lou’s take:  Read the full post +
