At the Beginning...

of my blogging journey. As an author, that is, because I sure have read a lot of blogs. Mostly other crafters', from which I have gathered inspiration for many new projects and techniques.
My goal here, however, isn't so much to teach new ideas, but really just to share the path I'm on now, and if anyone derives anything from it, so much the better. Even though I sometimes feel isolated with what I'm going through, I've lived long enough to realize there's probably someone else who has trod in similar shoes. Perhaps I will gain something from the writing process, and time will tell if reading my experiences gives somebody some insight.
It seems as though most bloggers try and keep their posts on a main theme, for instance, if I wanted to share my craft projects, then I wouldn't write about my illness here, or care giving for my Mom, family struggles, etc. I have even seen authors have multiple blogs, and that's annoying for me when they reference something on their 'other blog'. Holy smokes, if I'm giving you my valuable time, please don't even think I want to exert any more effort by visiting another one of your blogs. Frankly, if you have something to say, spit it out. Don't make me hunt for it. I don't want to explore your rationale for having multiple blogs.
Therefore, I've decided to go with a 'multiple topic' blog. If the spirit moves me, I will write about it. If it falls out of bounds of what one wants to read, then scroll on, baby. Scroll on!
