I have found a couple of advantages to blogging that I didn't expect. I now have a record of my work -- finishes, starts, and works in progress. I also now have a record of the various different things I've tried -- stitching, adding color, and different techniques for embellishment.
Best of all -- I've made friends and influenced people. This last was something I never dreamed would happen. How cool. It seems a little immodest to crow about having influenced people -- but I have had people tell me so. And it's influence in a good way. Not like when your friend's parents don't want them to hang around with you. Or your friend's husband. Or your kid's friend's parents. Um, but anyway...
And last, but not least, I'm writing again. A poem a week -- at least. Although I don't always publish them -- I gotta have some standards.
This is probably a good time to thank my family and my followers for their support in this endeavor.
