I never thought I could make it as a blogger. What’s a blogger really anyway? And what makes someone successful at it? Daily I think it changes for me as I’m still trying to figure it out what I consider rewards, and if I should really be seeking them.
When I stepped blindly in faith to switch this blog from a photography blog to more blogging, using my photography skills to compliment my words, what I swear I was born to do – write, I have been touched by the blessings that have come from this. Things that spur me on, comments, texts, during times when I am about to throw in the towel, really. Something out of the blue comes along and it’s a little push to keep going.
New friends, new thoughts, new journeys, so many wonderful things have come from blogging. So to be asked to be featured in a blogging magazine, I would have never thought, especially since I decided to pursue this less than a year ago.
I have 8 pages in the Spring 2014 issue of Artful Blogging which is published by Stampington & Company. The pages are thick, the images by other bloggers are so moving (I have to admit I was a bit intimidated), but I am honored to be amongst such talented company. I talk about my story of blogging and why I do it, and how it all began – with diaries, the 17 that I found in my room back home, and a reminder that I have always loved to write, which is why I pursued a degree in journalism. I love to tell stories.
I’m excited to curl up with this magazine on the couch and see other’s images and read why other bloggers blog. You can purchase an issue at JoAnns, Michaels, Barnes & Nobles to name a few, or online or subscribe for $60. You should also check our their cute shoppe online.
Thank you for reading, supporting me, commenting, and just carving out a little time in your day with me.
