Happy 1st Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my young blog. Can't believe I've kept this up for a year and have had fun while doing it. I think we'll make cupcakes this weekend in celebration--maybe pumpkin or lavender or blueberry and lemon. Doesn't that sound good?! My girlfriend gave me a cupcake recipe book not too long ago and now I have a reason to bake away. Here are some things I've learned while blogging:

  • I'm not much of a writer. If I write too much it takes me too long and then I get antsy and waste a lot of time trying to get my thoughts down in words.
  • I'm a visual person. Need images to get my point across.
  • There are a lot of talented people out there and I love feeding from their ideas.
  • Blogging connects people together who have similar beliefs, interests, trials and life situations and I love that. I love that I've reconnected with old friends and have also made new friends. I love that my family can keep tabs on me and vice versa.
  • Having a blog encourages me to complete projects and start new ones so I can share with all of you. ;)
  • Blogging offers a creative outlet and a place where I can share all my ideas.
  • Opportunites and new outlets have opened up for my jewelry business.
  • I have learned that I have to REALLY limit my time on the computer or I could spend all day blogging and reading blogs.
  • And of course, blogging gives you all the opportunity to see my darling little family who are my pride and joy. Kisses!

Cheers to another year!

I'm impressed! I started mine nearly two years ago with one post and then didn't return for another year or so. I need to take some blogging tips from you and find a real purpose to my blog - rather than totally random thoughts. I love reading your blog! Thanks for keeping it up.
