Today I celebrate the first anniversary of my blog writing!!!!
When I started, I was uncertain that I would enjoy blogging, uncertain that it wouldn’t just take up more and more of my time, and uncertain that ANYone would want to read it. Well, all three of those worries were unfounded!!!
I love writing about what I am doing and I have found that the blogging process has helped to focus my quilting energies. I am always thinking about the next project and how I can blog about it. I have also enjoyed the documentation process that goes along with blogging, and have found it to be really helpful to write what you do and why.
Secondly, although it does take time to keep up with, it has been worth every minute spent and, after the honeymoon period passed, I haven’t been glued to my computer night and day.
Finally, the biggest enjoyment of blogging has been the people that I have met along the way…..from the comment written in French that I had to translate, to the “friend of a friend in Australia” comment on the last post. I have connected with known quilters as well as previously unknown ones. I have “met” people who spin with drop spindles, knit until their arms ache, learn to speak Greek just for the heck of it, cook some amazing dishes and, most importantly, keep the art of quilting alive and well in this world. I have given a gift to a total stranger and received one as well. I have been encouraged, complimented, educated and loved by all of you and I thank you!!!!
So, please raise your glasses…..
