When I started blogging this spring I had no plans or any idea how this blog might take shape. I knew I enjoyed writing. I knew I liked to take pictures. And I wanted to share. But the question was did I have any thing to say? At first, I didn’t think so.
I remember two specific things that really got me interested in blogging. The first was when my old co-worker, Anne, introduced me to Dooce, which remains one of my favorite blogs of all time. And the second was when I was asked to design a blog page for a literary newspaper while working at my old job. I had no idea what blogs entailed at the time (and I still have no web coding skills). It’s a good thing for me that wordpress provides templates!
Anyway, I’ve come a long way since then. I write posts fairly regularly. I take pictures. And I subscribe to a lot of blogs. It has really been a fun journey, full of inspiration, thoughts, sharing, learning and laughter. I’ve met people, via blogs, that I never would have, nearby and over great distances. And I’ve learned that there are those out there, family, friends and strangers, who are interested in what I have to share. And that is so amazing.
In fact, I’ve been trying to think of something to offer for the holidays. Something useful and fun. I like the ideas from these sites (1,2,3,etc), plus I’ve come up with a couple of my own. Basically, the plan is to offer a little something free to download every Sunday until Christmas. Check back tomorrow, the first of seven download-for-free Sundays, and I’ll see what I can come up with. 🙂
