One month ago, yes...it has been one whole month LOL, I hit "publish" for my very first post. It was both exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time. It's scary to put part of your personal life out into the abyss for the world to see. I questioned my sanity then decided to just go for it. I had already made up my mind that I wanted to do this.
I had never really paid much attention to blogs before this. I know I had gone into different ones to read an article on crafts, decor, etc. I usually found these when browsing through Pinterest (an addiction of mine) but I still hadn't really noticed what they were all about. One day my sister-in-law and best friend, Debbie at She Graces Her Home in God's Beauty was telling me about a teacup exchange that my wonderful niece Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose hosts. This caught my interest. A little while later I decided to go into Stephanie's blog to have a look. I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up joining the teacup exchange and thoroughly enjoyed myself, meeting 2 new teacup buddies in the process. After looking at Stephanie's blog it piqued my interest so I began searching for more. I found some terrific blogs that reflected my interests and spent a lot of time going through them. I was hooked and there was no turning back. I wanted to do this too. There were MANY frustrations along the way, I'm lucky my hubby didn't divorce me LOL. Through this he kept threatening to write a blog about me writing a blog. Stephanie was wonderful at assisting and getting me through the rough spots and I'll be forever grateful!
What were my reasons for deciding to create a blog?
1. It would give me an opportunity to share things that I enjoyed such as crafting, decorating, renovating, nature, etc.
2. It would hopefully allow me to meet people with similar interests, to enjoy and experience the camaraderie of the blogging community.
3. I was hoping it would motivate me to get moving on house renos, painting, etc. Things that I've been wanting to do but just couldn't get started on.
4. It looked like a lot of fun and I wanted to join in on that fun...LOL.
Well...this blog is still a work in progress so bear with me as I continue to learn. So far it has been a very enjoyable experience. I had heard the blogging community is saturated with wonderful and supportive people and I have found this to be true. I'm truly amazed at how friendships are already starting to develop and in such a short period of time. Everybody has been so kind.
Thank you so much for your kind words and support that you have all shown. I love reading your comments, it brightens my day. Please keep them coming haha!!
