As I was sitting at my work desk number crunching all day I was thinking about my blog and how Im approaching my 100th post
Jen had a question on her blog the other day, ‘if no one commented, would you still blog?’
Receiving comments is so motivating and encouraging and I must admit pretty thrilling!! But for me, blogging has pushed me to draw and create and to observe my wonderful surroundings and view things in a different way so yes, definetley!! I would!
The first blog I ever visited was Amy’s as I loved her little online shop from years back when she used to post on the 'Victoria magazine' forum.
I also remember visiting a great inspiring website last year ‘Another Girl at Play’ which featured
Alicia Paulson , her sister Julianna Smith and Claire from Loobylu
Such inspiring women who create - that got me going!!
From a post on Alicia's blog I somehow discovered 'Illustration Friday' and that changed everything for me!
so I encouraged my friend Melissa , who draws the cutest cats ever! to join up with me
'We can do this Melissa - one drawing a week - easy AND fun'
so this is how my blog came to be and its been an amazing blogging journey so far - really really great and I thank you ALL for your encouraging comments!!!
