I started the blogging on a blizzard day and I don't really know why I did other than I was bored.
I had no expectations, no game plan and most of all no preconceived notions of what defines a successful blog. Actually, at that time I barely knew what a blog was.
This whole idea was pretty off the wall even for me. I'm very unphotogenic, I am not known for my writing skills, and if the truth be told I'm horrible at expressing my feelings and emotions. So what the hell was I thinking?
So, the adventure began. At that point I really didn't know about followers, comments, stats or any of the other things that can make you crazy.
I actually prefer it that way. I never ever thought I would have followers, I am proud to say I have 67, yep that's 67 women that like my wackiness and took the time to follow me............
But more importantly, I have made some great friends. Like Dawn @Suitcase Vignettes who could actually be my long lost sister (if I ever had one) and Debbie @ She Accessorizes Well that has the most beautiful jewelry, and is brave enough to put herself out there in real life, and Pam @ Over 50 Feeling 40 who is teaching me how to write a better story, and Paula @ Fashion Over Fifty who just makes me smile every time I open her page, and Mongs @ My Thrifty Closet who has encouraged me and supported me. And Patti @ Not Dead Yet Style that reminds us all that over 50 is a fun, elegant and classy phase of life. And Dawn @ Spunky Chateau that has a heart felt thrifting need as big as mine and Emily @ Tinfoil Tiaras that has such a sweet outlook and has shown me that Canadians are really no different than Americans (Don't tell her I said that!).
What I'm trying to say is to me blogging isn't about the stats. It's about the friends the journey brings.
And that makes it all worth it.
So take a minute and stop by to visit my friends and show some bloggy love!
This is what I wore shopping yesterday. A little retail and thrifting made my day wonderful.
Yep, still haven't worn a "proper" coat!
And, yes that is a white purse! I wanted you to see the scarf bow......
