Blogging about Blogging

I started this blog almost 4 years ago and honestly was not sure if I would keep up with it. I was inspired by the scrapbookers who had blogs, especially Ali Edwards. I chose Blogger since it was free. I thought that I would not feel guilty about abandoning my free blog once it lost its novelty or if I became too busy to post.

My blog gave me a place to share my life and my scrapbooking (and eventually my cards). I named the blog after my move from Ohio to Texas. It gave me another way to keep up with my family and friends. I was surprised by how much I enjoy blogging. I enjoy the instant gratification of posting. I enjoy writing stories and sharing my thoughts and photos.

In 2009, I had a whole new topic to blog about: a little baby. Now that baby is a busy toddler. I have found new challenges from trying to balance family and work, which can inspire some posts. So far, my blog does not have a defined theme, and I post about whatever is on my mind. This approach has worked for me, but I want feedback from my readers. Please answer the poll and/or leave a comment about what you would like to see more of or less of on this blog. Thank you for reading!

I'm a fellow blogger who likes a little mix of creative and family. Makes you feel like you get to know someone a little and, for me, it makes the creative stuff more interesting.
