This is my birthday week
Contrary to what my profile says I have NOT been blogging since April of last year. My hubbie started up a family blog and added me in as a contributor. At that point I had zero interest in blogging and did not read very many either.
Last summer I started taking some sewing and design classes and in October, as a birthday present to myself, I decided to set up a blog just to record my progress. Shortly thereafter our computer died so I did not get going seriously till November.
I have had an interesting year with my, now multiple, blogs (and yahooing groups.) I've learned a lot of interesting things about the different areas of embroidery/design/quilting/genealogy. I've visited a "gazillion" blogs and learned from each of them. Above all I've been able to interact with a lot of interesting people, some of whom have become friends.
I've stepped out of my comfort zone and participated in fundraiser events, swaps, on-line challenges, tutorials, classes and giveaways. It's been interesting.
Thanks to each of you who have visited during my first year. Thanks to those of you who have left comments.
I'm currently taking a blogging 101 class because while I have learned a lot about blogging over the past year there are areas I want to improve and others that I want to learn about properly.
So from this about to be birthday girl (Wednesday) have a great week. I'm off to take photographs for my giveaway and some other stuff :)
