Two years ago today I clicked on "publish post" for the first time. 307 posts later, I'm looking back to that first day and doing some reflecting. In thinking about what blogging has meant to me, I can honestly say that it is important to me as a fiber artist and as a person.
As an artist, blogging has enabled me to share not only my work, but my ideas, my plans, my frustrations, my successes, and my failures. Blogging has provided discipline and motivation. It's given me an opportunity to dabble in teaching. Through all of you, it's provided encouragement, inspiration, feed-back, answers to questions, and suggestions.
As a person, blogging has given me a wonderful community to be part of. I have made friends and acquaintances from all over the world. This would only have been possible through this format. I appreciate every single one of you.
I'm going to be spending the next several weeks doing some blog housekeeping, organizing, and updating. So if your blog reader goes nuts and reports a hundred new posts from me, that's why! Mostly I want to work on my Fiber Gallery, which I've neglected. I started that blog to help me keep track of what I've done, but I haven't done a very good job of finishing what I started.
I haven't made the blog rounds lately, but that's something else I plan to get caught up on. Most of all, I just want to thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life.
