Welcome To My New Blog!

I love reading blogs!  I have about 20 that I follow regularly.  Some are about crafty things, others are about day to day things.  So after months of following these blogs, I began to get the urge to create my own.  It looks like fun and I've used blogs before.  I use one all the time in the technology class I teach.  I created a vacation blog so my family could follow our Yellowstone adventure a few years ago.  Well, true to my nature, I decided to dive right in and create one. After I had picked the perfect background, added pictures and some gadgets, I started to panic.  Well, not really panic, because I don't panic. :)  Worry? Fret? Second guess myself?  Whatever you call it, I began to ask myself a few questions:  Could I create something people will want to read?  What would I talk about? Would I type post after post only to have 3 followers - all of who (whom?) are probably related to me?  What if I made stupid grammar mistakes and people laughed at me?  Oh, the pressure.  Then I decided that none of that matters.  I'm creating the blog for me.  I want a new creative outlet and this is it.  Hopefully, I'll gather a few followers along the way (big thanks to my friend, Kim, for following me before I even finished the blog!).  But you know what, even if my mom is the only one who reads this - because she has to, she's my mom - that's just fine.  I'm still going to enjoy the process.  My plans, goals, and hopes for my blog are this:
  • Have fun with it!
  • Give others something to do after they've caught up on the day's Facebook and Pinterest updates but aren't quite ready to go to bed.
  • Create a record of all the new recipes, crafts, and home projects that I keep pinning and KNOW I'm going to complete.  Really, I am! 
  • Inspire me to create and do more since now I know that people will be anxiously awaiting my next post.  I won't want to disappoint my public. 
  • Post once a week.  Maybe every other week.  Or monthly.  Monthly might be good.  What???? I don't want to create unrealistic expectations and set myself up for failure!
Well, however this turns out - good, bad, or ugly - I hope you'll enjoy what you read. For now though, thanks for hanging out with me for a few minutes.  I have to go pin now.
