For those new to my blog, you may not know that I’ve been blogging for nearly 8 years. I decided to compile a list of posts that give you a good taste of my writing style and personality. Based off of Google Analytics data, search engine traffic, and reader comments, the following posts are my most popular works of blogging art.

If you like what you read, feel free to click on the sidebar and become a follower of www.cuteculturechick.com. Believe me, there’s a LOT more where that came from.

Oh My Darling Clementine!

Does anyone else get giddy when temperatures drop and clementines start showing up in grocery store produce sections? I do! Even more so when I find them on sale for $3.99 a bag. Here’s to my favorite cold-weather fruit! Huzzah!

p.s. Are any of you reading my review blog, www.NicoleRatesIt.com ? Click over and give me a follow. If you do, I’ll share my precious clementines with you (but you’ll have to come to my house to collect it…but that isn’t so bad, is it?)

Profound Effect

Tagged by Esther: Think of 25 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of musically shaped your world. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you’re it.
