WordPress kind of scolded me for not having anything posted. So here goes.
Blogging is a true discipline and I am still struggling with it but I do love interacting with my fellow beaders, near and far. I guess that is my true inspiration. I have busy trying a new approach to organizing my jewelry for sales and an Etsy shop. I am working on pulling my jewelry together into collections. So let me share a great video course that inspired me to do so. I am also coming to realizing that blogging is not really about just coming up with taxing original content and thoughts. It is equally about providing valuable curated content that your readers will enjoy. That content can be in various forms such as video, audio, infographics and other helpful formats just so it is useful to your audience. So here it is :

I have to admit that I am not much of a blogger I guess because it means I have to shut down my mind to everything else except for the topic of my writing. Well, isn’t beading like that anyway? I know for me it has been a mental vacation from the stresses of life. Also after nearly 30 years in the computer industry, it has given me the opportunity to use all of my artistic and creative abilities in a free-flowing activity. I guess that is why I love beading so much. What about you?
When I sit down to bead, especially in a nice Panera Bread, where soft, soothing music is playing or the fireplace is crackling on a cold day, I forget about everything, as I get lost in my beads. I get lulled into tranquility. All I am thinking about at that time is the beautiful colors in front of me.
Writing can be like that perhaps so then blogging must be another good way to escape from a hectic day. For me, it means forgetting about all the pressures of writing for graduate courses. On my blog, I get to just share my thoughts without concern for how I will be graded. In my most recent graduate studies in seminary, we were required to write 250 word Blackboard discussion posts. Many times, I did not need all those words to express myself, because I am trained in business to be succinct rather than verbose. It was challenging for me to keep rambling on. So to share with you my fellow beaders and bloggers I will just put all of that aside and remember the pleasure I experienced as a undergraduate student writing letters to my friends. Now, you, my readers, are those beading friends that I hope will enjoy what I share in my writings about my beading journeys.
