Join the Blogging for Bliss Blog Party
In celebration of the release of Tara Frey's book Blogging for Bliss, Kari Ramstrom of ArtsyMama is having a blog party. What a fabulous idea! Kari is asking bloggers to post anything on the theme of Blogging for Bliss. Be sure to visit her site for the list of all the participating blogs. I've only been blogging since February but I'm hooked. I first started my blog because I wanted to connect with other women who shared the same creative passions as me. It has provided me with so much more. I'm inspired by the many fabulous blogs that I've since found. Blogging has also been a great way to improve my photography. It forces me to constantly be taking pictures which I love to do.
The hardest part has been the learning curve beyond the basics. That is, figuring out how to customize and enhance it. I often see something on another blog and think "how did she do that?". The most challenging part is keeping up with all the blogs out there. I'd love nothing more than visiting all of them each day, but there are too few hours and sooooo many blogs but I do visit as many as I can each day.
Knowing that people are interested in visiting my site has been very gratifying. I'm so appreciative of the comments I receive; they really mean a lot to me. It was so exciting when I started seeing all the countries that visitors had come from. Me, a home-town girl who has always lived close to home in California, being able to communicate with these wonderful ladies the world over!
When I saw that Blogging for Bliss had been released, I rushed to my local Barnes & Noble to pick it up. I even went through a red light albeit I didn't intend to! It has wonderful photos and is filled with tidbits of information and ideas. I'm so happy there is a book on blogging just for creatives. I would be pleased to hear from you if you'd like to leave a comment. Now, go on over to visit the other blogs in the party. Hurry, don't be late!
