I set myself a challenge at the beginning of the month to post daily. This was mainly because I started the blog back in May and I thought I knew why....but then I was posting only every now and then, so this self set challenge has cleared up a few things for me.
I only discovered blogs in january this year and I'm addicted. I started reading for home inspiration and now craft inspiration too. Also now I read certain blogs because I care what is happening in these 'virtual' friends lives.
I've always been very cautious about the internet, but the blog community is proof that fundamentally people are Nice. Honest. Trustworthy. Generous.
This month has made me see that I don't necessarily have anything to share daily. And to be honest I'm still not entirely sure if I have a 'purpose' to my blog. Then I ask myself - does it need a purpose?? I like that blogging makes me record my projects. I like that blogging makes me take photos. The camera is nearly always to hand these days - which means more snaps of my boys for me too.
So, I shall continue! Hopefully without the committment of a post a day it may free up a bit more time for all the projects on The List!
Sandie, at Dancing on a Blade of Grass, accepted the challenge herself - sucessfully too! And she has very kindly given me this.....
Thank You Very Much Xx
I'll be back in a couple of days- hopefully with the answer to my paper gift bag question!! I dismantled a laura ashley paper bag last night, I'm going to use a felt tip and mark the fold lines and use as a template...watch this space!!!
