My First Challenge ...

Well, I finally got brave enough to enter a challenge! Okay, I said it ... I have no confidence. I had been telling myself that I wanted to try to do one. So, I went to Beate's blog and decided to take a chance and enter. I admire many of you SCS ladies and Beate is one of 'em. This challenge is WSC63 ... I hope I am doing this right, Beate!

My tendancy is to hoard my things; i.e., papers, chipboard, brads, ribbons ... should I go on?? I can't help it. They're my friends, ha! So here it goes ... Let me know what you think. Is it acceptable??

The recipe:
Keywords: WSC63
Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Linen
Paper: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, retired SU Afternoon Tea DSP
Ink: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Ranger Walnut Stain (for distressing)
Accessories: Dotted Swiss EF, 1/2" circle punch, SAMJ, Chipboard Flower, non-SU copper brads, Taupe Grosgrain Ribbon
Techniques: Distressing
Difficulty (1-Easy 5-Advanced): 2

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
