For the Love of Blogging!

Posted on January 5th, by Amy in 52 weeks. 42 comments

I love blogging.  Hopefully that comes across here as I write daily!  Having this portal to a social life via my computer is amazing, but there are days when it’s work.

(I found this tray and had to share it with you!  Love it!!)

I have read a lot about blogging too, on other blogs, naturally!  Many offer ebooks about this and that, but I’ve not been baited until I came across Tara’s ebook “52 Weeks of Blogging your Passion“.  This ebook is all about encouraging me to blog more, and from perspectives that I hadn’t thought about yet. (It could be for you too if you are interested!)  So, occasionally you will see posts that refer to this challenge, and today is one of them!  As we begin the new year, I would like to share my mission, my vision for this blog.

Parkcitygirl is my outlet to share my love for my family and my love for fabric!  Quilting is my creative therapy in the midst of our busy household, by sharing here my desire is to encourage and inspire others to find their personal creative outlet.

What do you think?  Is it me?

    Hi Amy,
    I really love your blog! I think that mine is boring. However, we all blog for different reasons! It was insecurity and a bit of isolation that prompted me to blog. Insecure about my various dabbles in fiber arts; quilting, knitting, dollmaking and the comments have served to spur me onward. I haven't any quilting buddies, so I'm home working alone…lol! Your blog is very YOU and I am happy that you are here!

    A mission statement, what a great idea. I should have thought of that earlier. I'll have to take a closer look at the ebook.

    I love the tray. It reminds me of a quilt block from a Piece O'Cake book.

    You are doing a good job as far as I'm concerned. I've been a silent reader since I came across a reference to the spring quilt festival and all the wonderful examples I found on that inspired me to make a proper effort to learn patchwork and quilting.

    My new year resolution was to finally set up my own blog and participate online rather than just lurk, so thank you very much.

    I've seen that ebook. I took a class with Creative Thursday and we went through similar personal challenges to our on-line presence. It did wonders for me.
    And yes, it sounds like what you do.

    Nice Vision Statement. I just did a similar exercise from the Problogger – 31 Days to a Better Blog program. Your blog is really easy to read and enjoy – light – airy – colorful – with good ideas! (love that rainbow tray BTW)
    Best, WendyB

    No Way! I just checked out problogger for my first time following your link. I suspected that there might blogs about blogs, but a blog about blogs about blogs is almost too postmodern for me.

    Love your mission statement, and I see a quilt in that tray!
