To Blog or Not to Blog

I’ve been lurking in the blogging world on and off for years. When I went away I always came back to hang with these like-minded people. And I have always felt I could give something back. But How? I had trouble leaving comments and writing a blog was really public. I didn’t want to find out I wasn’t good enough. But the more I lurked the more I want to come out and play. I came up with all sorts of excuses to remain a wall flower. But it wasn’t feeling very good.

And then 2012 arrived and Donna of Funky Junk Interiors did this…

Her ‘A Week of Change, a new you for 2012’  created such desire that I stepped up and posted a comment! Me! making a comment. And not just any old comment but a confession that is now changing my life.

I want to leave the rat race and make a living with my creativity.

Yup! that’s what I wrote. I know it will take time but I’m determined. This blog will be my sounding board. I’ll learn and grow as I go and see where it takes me. And I’ll keep going as long as I have fun doing it.

That was part one! Part two brought the “Picture Perfect Room” challenge and I was off and running. I chose my half-finished laundry room and commenced with the next two parts: ” Try Something New” and “Offer Something.” I hope to offer up all three efforts for your review in the near future. So stay tuned as I traverse this new and enduring adventure and report back. And if you’re like me and lurk in the back ground, DON”T wait 2 years to make a comment.  It doesn’t hurt. Really!
