Giving it a whirl!

Ok, so I'm on Day 3 of this great online class called "Blogging for Scrapbookers" through I've been seriously thinking about creating a blog for several months now, but have had two real issues (ok, excuses) that have prevented me from getting started:
  1. A lack of technical knowledge, and
  2. The pressure of having to come up with posts that are both witty and informative. (Seriously, who needs that kind of stress??)

Well, thanks to Shimelle's amazing class, I now possess the step-by-step instructions to create, edit and maintain a fabulous blog and will receive daily "prompts" for the next three weeks with creative suggestions for posts. But, more importantly, I now understand that it's ok to create a blog that's really just for me! I'm the boss, applesause, and I can talk about whatever I want! I can be as sassy (or serious) as I want, post pictures and projects I am having fun with right now and if no one ever visits or reads my posts, that's ok! This little blog can just be another extension of my creativity and allow me to express my thoughts and feelings about my everyday life. And hopefully it will also bring some new energy into my most favorite pastime: scrapbooking!

Ok, so it would be great if at some point in the future someone other than my Mom and sister follow my blog, but even if they don't, I'm excited that I've taken the first step on this journey!
