I have been reading this book today. Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey.
I was looking for ideas and suggestions. I have never done blogging before and so I wanted some direction. I found this book easy to read and informative and more than that, enjoyable. I did get some ideas and some of my questions have been answered. I really dont know how people find our blogs and I don't know what makes people read them. At this point I have 3 blogs because there is just too much for one. I must have too much to say? Who wants to read what I have to say anyway, so I guess what I do is just do it for me. If people read then that's wonderful but I know I dont have any life changing ideas or thoughts for anyone else. If you read Bluebell Woods you may see how I get through trials and tribulations but how do I get through procrastination and mental blocks? I have more than enough to inspire me and I have got really into reading other peoples blogs. I really need to get on and do stuff, crafts and painting and sewing and all those projects I have been wanting to start. Well.............a New Year. A new beginning. Come on 2012 move over 2011 and get the heck out of here we are moving on.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
