Hello, Everyone!! I get the feeling that there might be a lot of newcomers showing up to say howdy over the weekend and so I just wanted to let you know that I’m awfully happy to have you. For those of you who have already been around for a while, I hope you know that I am most thankful to you for reading each post.
I learned a lot on my recent trip to the Haven Conference. The things that I learned had more to do with the way I think and feel about this blog than the actual content of the sessions that were offered. For example, I realized that my favorite part about blogging and being a blogger is not the actual blogging itself. That part, the editing of the photos and the actual work I have to do on the computer, that part? That is not my favorite. All of the most successful bloggers that I know always say that if you are not passionate about blogging, that you will burn out in a very short time. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard that advice. It has always worried me because, I’ll be honest, I find sitting in front of the computer, “blogging”, pretty tedious.
So. The big thing that I learned? The parts that I find to be a bit tedious? They’re just the hard work that I need to do in order to get to my favorite part – and that is the interactions that I get to have with all of you. I’m serious. I’m not just saying that. It makes my day! I absolutely love reading all of your comments on my blog posts. I love posting all kinds of silliness on Facebook and hearing everyone chime in with their own silliness (it’s also a good place to see sneak peeks of my latest projects). I’m not that big on Twitter. . . I just don’t get it, but I LOVE Instagram! And I love Pinterest, too!
If you’ve never been here before today, you’re likely visiting me via Miss Mustard Seed‘s site. I don’t need to tell you what an inspiration Marian is – to so many of us. I know you feel the same way about her as I do. I am (we are all) lucky to know her. Can someone be your mentor if they are younger than you? (only a little tiny bit) Can someone be your mentor if they don’t even know that they are?
Okay – this was meant to be short! WELCOME to everyone who is reading – old and new – thank you so much for being here and brightening up my day!
