One year....and oh my,
how Blogging has changed my life.

A computer has only been a part of my life for the past 4 years.
I always said 'I don't need one'.....
I've sure had some thoughtless ideas sometimes. I'm just glad someone finally set me in the right direction, I learned how Un-intimidating it really is, and I smile every time I see it come to life. What a different world it has opened up for me. Especially one year ago....

My neighbor convinced me to start a blog. I knew basic computer things like emailing, searching for info, and was using one for data entry at work. She told me what address to go to, basic things I needed to know, and said I could do it....

Well, what a dunderhead I was! I thought my friend Linda and I could start making some things to sell and maybe even share a few things with someone. I guess I was thinking 'Web Site' or something...who knows. My first post sounds like I think the whole world was right there reading what I wrote...I should have deleted it! I was going to put it on here but it's too laughable and a little embarrassing to be honest. If you want a good laugh you can find it. But I won't care if you don't...really...

Anyway, it took some time and a whole lot of writing about things. But I think I've finally found my comfort place here. I've made some awesome friends along the way, learned there are many women with both different and similar ideas as I have, laughed and cried along with them...and them with me. I don't have a ton of followers but feel a closeness to who I have met. And I'm still a work in I've always been.

I've been telling stories about things in my past, people in my memories and lately the history of my family a few generations ago. I hope you enjoy visiting when you stop here and I love it when you leave a comment. And I love to tell stories....the true kind. This is my outlet for that.

I also have a silly/sarcastic side to me....that's why the Change in a Bottle Blog was started not long after this one. It started out DUMB too, but I've finally found my comfort zone there. I love everything about Blogging. First, all the awesomely talented ladies I've met and who have shared a little part of their time with me. And then the fact that I can open my mind and just let things come out in words.

Can't get much better than this........

Thanks again for coming along on my journey. Who knows what we'll find next.

Be sure to enter for the GIVEAWAY taking place later this evening.
Visit the post below this one.
And have a great Monday.

See ya Yesterday
