Blogging Along in April – Day One
I can do and say and post whatever I like. It is my blog however, right? This is my own space. This is a space just for what is webbing in my mind. Oh what terrible webs we weave. Sir Walter Scott, 1808!
There is something so delicious about a NEW blog! And oh so exciting! I'm going to be obsessed with my new blog for the next 30 days, and oh if I am away for a day, I will catch up on a following day in May. Who knows, I might make it another 30 days, if people catch on to what I am writing about. I have a new title, Was smiling now and forever. I have a new blogspot... https://stillsmilingalways.blogspot.com/ which is right where you have found yourself reading this morning! And I have a new .com www.keeponsmilingkreativekorner.net ! And one post about myself not being the other woman you think I am. That's really it. No new followers, just yet. Nonoe except close circle of online pals from the Wilder hood, have read my blog. And with that, I am a okay.
The first thing I am realizing is, I kinda want more! I know, I know, that less is more. However, I do want readers. I would like to see some comments. I would like honest to goodness feedback and or people having conversations on my blogger. Isn't that what we all dream of when we start a blogger? I have been having new ideas, new topics, new brainstorming ideas, about what the actual fuck I will be writing about for 30 days! If it is one thing in life, that I live to do, deep down to the core, is write. I have journals stacked upon each other on my computer desk filled with the ramblings of my crazy bouts and while, I know, I am the only one who reads them. I am okay with that. Really, ok- because they are personal. Too personal to post on the interwebs,...
While some of you may not know, I majored in mass communications in college. I tried the radio dj for a while, such a competitive market, not made for the city I live in. I tried writing for my school newspaper. Where I was lead photographer. I enjoyed every minute of that. I tried writing for our small local paper. Apparently I am not liberal and opinionated enough for that. Me? Really NOT opinionated ENOUGH Lets laugh out loud at that! I did however branch out and start my own photography business Keep On Smiling Photography. Where, I did manage to have photos I have taken published. There is that. I do have those framed in a scrapbook :) I put writing on the back burner while I transferred to the digital world of photography. Only to learn I really missed old school black and white dark room film. That is where I feel in love with band and concert photography. I once called myself a little Linda McCartney. Thus hoping maybe one day Rolling Stone Magazine would call. Then one day, to my surprise, my writing drought ended. And started cooking once again.
My true self fully believes I can do it all. Be the creative soul that I am and be successful at it! It has taken years to build who people think I am as the artist. But they really only have half a clue. Though only see what they want to see right? But I like to think of myself as is a nut case (in a good way!) “Those are your best qualities,” he said, kissing me on top of my head. Yes, even he, my husband thinks I am a nut case. As, I have 3 live pet squirrels, 2 dogs, and 5 cats. to him, I am the crazy cat lady. And I love that. It is okay that he calls me that. But you call me that, and I might come unglued and out of my seat!
“Love me, anyway,” I demand. And he does.
And you should too, as you see me smile!
