It's just a way for bloggers to get to know each other, share a little bit about themselves, and make friends! So here's a little bit about why I started blogging:
I needed someone to talk crafty to, other than my poor husband, who only speaks engineer.
I like to share my harebrained ideas with the world.
I needed an occasional soapbox.
I have an etsy shop for my creative overflow and wanted a blog to go along with it.
I like show-and-tell.
I wanted to make new friends online!! (It is hard for me to make friends in person.)
Here's what blogging is teaching me:
I don't have to be perfect to be liked. (There is no chance I will be perfect, so this is a very good thing.)
Bloggers are overwhelmingly supportive of one another, even their direct competition. I love that!!
Twitter isn't just for 14 year olds.
I really really need to take pictures and write things down when I'm creating things from scratch.
I don't have to blog every day or even every week to be a "success."
There are so many cool people out there that I can't wait to get to know!
So head on over to the party at 5 Minutes for Mom and meet some other new bloggers! And please leave a comment for me and for them - we bloggers LIVE for comments!!
