Today was one of those snippets of fun in the midst of chaos!! Truly, my favorite kind!
Last week, Linda posted a little tutorial on "why we blog". Do you (I?) do it for more business? To make money? To gain exposure? To get Published? Or just see where it takes us?
I started this blog two years ago on a whim. I had been reading several blogs for about a year. I found something I really liked and heard my little voice saying things like ... I can do this, I like this ... I think I have things to share, etc., etc. Friends of mine were not so enthusiastic.
That's a lot of work. Every Day? You'll run out of things to say! ... What, are you crazy? What is a blog?
But I jumped on anyway. Sometimes the best way ... just do it and see what happens!!
Well, Linda and I have talked. And she knows I have stated that I just want to see where this ride takes me.
Not enough. If I want it to succeed, it has to be more. and I have to consider Tweeting and Facebook, etc., etc.
So I have been thinking.
The Boston Design Center and WaterSpot hosted
for a presentation and Luncheon.
Susanna agrees with Linda! Designers today need to be hooked into the Social Media. Even Old Girls like Me!
Susanna shared her stories of being published and just flat "going for it". She has a wonderful background from her time with Elle Decor and House and Garden. Her words were the same as Linda's.
Find your Voice. Make it Happen. And don't be Shy.
I have been blogging about a year and a half. Growing ... slowly! And I have treated this as a place to share my daily (almost!) life in design. With a little bit of personal thrown in ... just to lighten things.
Today's chat with Susanna made me realize that I blog, yes to "grow" my business and to Share my adventures in Interior Design ...
But the clarity came when I all of a sudden KNEW ... I mostly blog to Inspire you to be Creative in your Lives. Whether in Interiors or just the way you approach the day.
And an unexpected treat of blogging. The friends I have made that continue to inspire ME!
What would you like to hear about? As I move forward I'd like to know that you are a part of this. My thoughts are to include a post from YOU! Tell me your thoughts, or something you want to know more about and I'll gladly share. I'd like to take the adventure with you as my partner! So please if you see something you want more OR less of let me know!
Other than that ... thank you for continuing to read and support me ... and I'll do my best to Bring It!
Thanks Linda and Susanna!
