Auspicious Beginnings

Sound the trumpets! Release the balloons! Set off the fireworks! I am starting my blog!

Now what....I have been debating and debating about starting a blog. Everyone says it is a must do. So now I must work to make it a must read. What a challenge! I am not a natural writer, it is a bit of a struggle for me. So if you cringe when you see bad grammar in print, this may be the wrong blog for you. I will, however, try very hard to get my spelling right. I have a thing about that. I will be writing about various topics, mainly having to do with artistic topics. I might stray off the topic now and then if I think something is of interest. I will try to have a casual, yet professional site (if there is such a thing) with a touch of humor. If I have to be too serious I will never write, but then again if I have to have you rolling in your computer chairs all the time, that is just a bit too much pressure also. I do not intend to tell you what I had for breakfast, or what new shoes I bought. Now to figure out what TO write. I am sure I will think of something I always have too many ideas swirling in my head. Getting them out properly is the problem. Please stay tuned... in the mean time. May I suggest I really like my new book! (As pictured)

"Blogging for Dummies" by Susannah Gardner and Shane Birley and I know I should have a link here I will have to look up how to do that again. It was in there and I forgot how. Still learning what fun!

  6. Thanks Lynda! I have changed these colors and layouts around about a million times. It is just too much fun to play with :) The banner is just my Etsy one. I didn't want to reinvent the wheel on that one.
