Admittedly, when I started my blog, it was basically on a lark. I didn't identify any specific goals. I'd started reading a few crafter's blogs, loved what they had to offer and thought I'd give it a whirl.
I still can't say what I want Moonbeams and Fireflies to be when it grows up, but after giving this some thought, I know what I personally hope to gain through the blogging experience. Here goes:
- I get a kick out of trying different things. Blogging is about doing all sorts of things I previously didn't do often: tell a story, design digitally, edit photos, view the world with an eye toward sharing
- I want to connect with new friends who share my passion for dabbling in arts and crafts, repurposing and recycling rescued materials, collecting antiques and vintage items, gardening and enjoying nature
- My more than 30-year career--which isn't over yet--is built on a foundation of writing and editing--for other people and mostly in the world of print. Blogging is just for me. Just because . . .
- A mind is a terrible thing to waste and I don't ever want to stop learning. The beauty of being a part of the blogging community? I can learn so much in a single day from all the talented bloggers out there that it often makes my head spin
When it's all summed up, it seems I'm in for bushels of fun, friends and fantastic enrichment as my little blog grows up.
NOW, GET READY TO PARTY
Hope to see you there.
Make it a great day!
