Boost My Blog Friday - 4/08



Hi everybody! Today is Friday, that means it's time again to catch up with Boost My Blog Friday here on Design It Chic!




For those of you new here, it's very simple.. the only rule is: no rules!! That's right!! This blog-hop is supposed to be a boost in our blogs' asses... friends-wise:)!!
So just make sure you link with us, follow us as the host (and leave us a comment so we know you follow us and return the love back:) and then feel free to follow whoever you want to, leave nice comments, send them love notes and chocolate boxes *WOW scratch that last part:P* and don't forget to do the happy dance!

If you join with us on Boost My Blog Friday, please take your time and leave a comment, so we know you're participating with us and maybe pay you a visit:) Thanks!



And as always, today we have another question for you:
Sugar or Splenda(or any other sweetener)?

Well most of the times we use honey instead. It's just more natural and it's even recommended by doctors in so many affections. If we're out of honey we go for sugar, but the queen bee is much happier when we have some of that golden sweetness in our cupboard:) Now what's your story? Just share your sweetening deal here with us and also find out what other fellow bloggers opted for too:) Now let's get this party started!


And, if you missed anything here at Design It Chic, you can check the Blogger tutorial section for more blog tutorials, the SEO department for more tips to improve your blog's traffic or check out the Unclutter tips column for more tips on making your blog clean and easy to access! Happy Friday all!

Hello :) Sugar for me! I know it's bad for you but I'd rather take natural badness for synthetic - plus aspartame gives me a terrible headache :)

Your blog rocks btw!

Sugar for me. The other fake stuff is just too unnatural and 'bad' to say the least.

For last several months, I've been using Splenda in my tea primarily. When I bake, I still use sugar. I love honey, but my family is allergic to it. However, on rare occasions I do eat with biscuits.

Thanks for hosting a hop with so few rules and regs!! Some of them just get so ridiculous with their requirements...it takes all the fun out of it!

Honey is first on our list, followed by sugar/brown sugar, then Splenda. Almost no (sometimes it slips through) saccharin or aspartame for us.

Charlie and Jessica said...

New follower from the blog hop. Thanks for hosting! And to answer your sugar question, we do both! Sugar in our cooking and things that take a lot of it since its cheaper, but Splenda in our drinks like sweet tea or coffee. Odd maybe, but its the best of both for us, somewhat less calories without too bid a dent in the budget! Have a great weekend and stop by our blog if you have time and want some new recipes :-)
