A Blogiversary to Recognize!

It's hard to imagine that I engaged in a 'blogging' space on this date 15 years ago. A MILESTONE in and of itself!  Lots of water under the bridge, changes, and growth since those long ago days.  

We were Kansas residents, at the time I began this blog.  I started it as I wanted a space to communicate with my 'left behind' friends and family to be able to read about our adventure of living in farm country on a farmstead.  I also had a desire to write about and publish my ART PROCESS. And - blogging became a special occasion to JOURNAL. 

Blogging was ONCE a 'have to' for me. Perhaps you have noticed, I am not as active on this space as I once was. 

NOW living back in Colorado and family changes - the necessity for blogging much of the time - has waned - click for more... The ART PROCESS is still a happening event.    It was and IS a way to connect with the 'like minded'  - however, many of those like-mindeds have set their sails and traveled off into other spaces and platforms.  With each passing year, I feel less and less connected through my blog and I get WAY LESS response to what I write.  Are you still out there????

At the present, I am taking a fiercely wonderful online 'marketing course'.  Look for changes in the coming fall months.  I will be launching a NEW website filled with all things ART.  

Stay tuned - for the TBD (To Be Determined) time.

PS There are a few blogs left from those olden and golden days.  Keeping a blog going is likened to 'geeking out'.  I LOVE visiting my fellow 'geeks'.  It takes time to do this writing, but I find there is a plethora of good news out there on blogs, especially from those folks who do ART of some kind or another.  Keep the fire going. even if it's only once in awhile.  HUGS!

Happy Blogiversary, Pattie! I hope you will keep your blog. I must admit I haven't been the best blogger myself over the past few years but I'm still trudging along. hehe Best of luck with your new website! I'll look forward to seeing it.

I started my blog back in 2006 and I do love blogging so don't think I'll ever give it up. Social media platforms have changed over the years and continue to change, and not for the better in my view. I go to them less and less and find myself drawn back to blogging more regularly. I've noticed that some are pushing their blogs again so there is still hope.

Enjoy your upcoming weekend. x

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving such a nice comment Serena. I love stopping by your blog once in awhile. Crossing my fingers that 'blogging' has a resurgence in this next year. There was a time that I ran to the computer each day to write something new. I still have lots on my mind - I will just have to make more time to share it. BLOG ON!
