I am attending a blog party. My very first and I am excited. It's fun and I hope you will join in, as well. Just go to http://www.itallstartedwithpaint.com and link up.
Sandy over at Happy Valentine mentioned it in her blog and I said, well yes, I'd just trapsie on over and take a look at what was going on . And, it made me think 'What do I want my blog to be when it grows up?'
I had no idea what a blog was when I found a friends (she pushed me in the right direction) and I knew that blogging was for me. My husband had Alzheimers at that time and I was home with him a lot and didn't have much social contact with gals my own age ... or younger ... or older. And, I thought perhaps if I blogged about Our Journey through Alzheimers it would be a release for me and I might hook up with others in like circumstances. I've made the grandest friends and I couldn't stop at just one blog... oh no, I have Living Life on Main Street and Latane's quilts.
I've been disappointed somewhat in my inability to draw flies to the sugar, so to speak... you know, have a ton of followers and comments and such. I've tried various things and nothing seemed to work much until I started doing some linkys. Oh, yes.
So, you might say that What I Want My Blog To Be When It Grows Up is this:
- I want to paint a picture of me and my life, such as it is
- I want to perhaps influence a few, gain friends a lot, and just have a ton of fun.
- I want to learn more about how to make my blog more readable so that when it does grow up it will be fantastic.
And, I want to thank each of you who have visited my blog. I adore hearing from you and what you are doing on any given day. By posting about your world and your life it is enhancing mine greatly. So, I thank you.
