My HGTV Canada debut!

Now for some wonderful news:  HGTV Canada hasn't given me my own show (sadly)...but I will now be blogging for them on their website!  
Recently I was commissioned to write shop reviews of local Calgary decorating shops for HGTV Canada's wonderful Style Sheet blog:  
Style Sheet is written mainly by HGTV staff writers, with appearances by guest bloggers like me!

For my first review, I wrote about a beautiful Calgary decor shop called Melange for the Home.  I also took the accompanying photos.  You can read my review here.  
Melange is a beautiful shop.  For locals...I recommend a visit to check out their stunning Christmas decor (and maybe a little shopping)!

If you are a Calgarian and have an idea for a shop I should review, please send me an email or post a comment.  I have a list of favorite shops to review but would love your suggestions!  I hope to do at least one post a month for HGTV Canada.  I even had to get a business number for my "writing" business.  Isn't that cool?!

Please check out the main HGTV Canada website too!  They have some great home decor and renovation content.  I am also adding Style Sheet to my blogroll!

  1. Congratulations! Too bad they aren't giving you a show of your own...I find very few inspiring programs on HGTV besides Sarah Richardson's series and a couple others.... A series dealing with cross-Canada styles and decor shops would be something I'd like to see.

  21. Congrats - I just know you'll do a great job. Your post over a year ago on Belgian decorating style was one of the first blog posts that I read and I loved it. It was well written and very informative. I'm sure your posts about Calgary stores will be equally good.

    cheers,

  26. How To Make money with affiliate programs Today. Affiliate marketing is the easier and probably the most effective method to make money from the internet. It is basically, a kind of selling technique where potential buyers from your website are directed to the websites of sellers. For every click, the website owner gets a small commission.

  30. What I like about small business owners is that they are not afraid to take huge risks and lay it all on the line. But, I agree they do need a lot of help with their marketing. I think having them go the social media and email route is not only the least expensive but its also the most effective. Thanks for the stats!
    With Facebook and Twitter being among the leaders of the Social networks, marketing as a small business is being transformed..
    Respondents according to the Vertical Response survey appear to need some differentiation with the use of SE marketing and Social media Marketing
