Let's Try This Again

On January 1, like most other people, I swore I was going to stop procrastinating and just do it -- blogging, that is. So here I am, one month later, trying to hold myself accountable. I figure if I attempt it again, hopefully it will become a regular habit.

As a solo business owner, it's not like I don't have anything better to do. But today I found myself with a few hours before my next appointment. I had several choices of how to spend that time -- get my 2010 tax papers in order, tackle a few tasks on my 3-page To Do list, start a new painting, clear off my desk, or blog. I actually did spend some time working on my taxes, even though that was my least favorite thing to do. And then I answered a few e-mails, so I felt thoroughly productive. So I gave myself permission to indulge and begin a new blog. Blogging is a whole new world to me, but I know it's one I must learn in order to stay current with the social media phenomenon that has taken us all by storm. It's no longer enough to have a website. Now I hear you need a blog to go along with it!

So I will start out slow, as I spend time learning the ins and outs. My passion is decorative painting, so that will be my main focus. I am trying to be mindful of taking Before, During and After pictures of my projects, so I can describe the process of each project. I always enjoy that when I am on someone else's artistic blog.

But I also hope to share things I come across that are of interest to those of you that could care less about painting. So, thanks for listening, and following me on my creative journey.


  1. Go with the flow, Deb. Aim to be a nice shining light in the blogosphere a few years from now, not a roman candle creating drama then rapidly burning out.
