Lots of you, out there who read this silly blog, have blogs yourself. So I think you know how exciting every comment, every response, each “follower”, subscriber, “like”, and link back to me are! It’s not like they get less exciting over time.
I just noticed I have 140 followers, and while this is a very meager number compared to a lot of the “bigger” blogs out there, it’s still very flattering to me that 140 people, are interested in what I have to say, or something of that nature. So I’d like to thank each of you, for more or less your support.
I don’t think I’ve ever told you all what my goal is with blogging. Well, I used to mention it quite a bit. But I haven’t in a while and I think I have a lot of new readers who probably don’t know.
I’m NOT trying to make big bucks, get picked up by some huge ad network, or anything like that. (I’m not saying I’m avoiding it, but it’s certainly not the goal.) Fame? You know I’d love it! Celebrity? Well I kind have always thought I was one anyway so…ha. I started this blog to share love, at a time when I was very depressed about life, and felt like there was a lot of sharing to do.
Now a lot of my love is shared in craft or edible form. And my end goal, is a craft empire of sorts. Yes I’m dead serious. I’d love to have my own craft/baking television show. Again, because I love the spotlight (why deny it?) and also because it would give me such a fabulous platform to share much more love.
So when I say, “I love your guts” and stuff such as that, I actually, really, mean it. Because I’ve found, after a few years of some not very happy living, that love is the only thing that matters. I will add to that, love, and how you share your love, are the only things that matter.
So with that said, I hope you have a great day. And speaking of great days…
I was on a run the other day and it started raining. And as the rain pounded harder and harder, my pace became faster and faster. I love things like running in a thunderous downpour. It makes me feel so hardcore and bad A. And as I got that runner’s high, thinking about how awesome and hardcore I am, I remembered at the beginning of my run how anxious and blah I felt.
I’ve realized that about 70% of the time I think I’m super awesome. I can accomplish anything, become anything. I’m that hard core, runner/crafter/blogger who will take over the world with love, baked goods and felt. And then about 30% (more sometimes) of the time I think I’m one of the biggest, sloppiest, messiest, and by far craziest people on the planet. Life tends to be in extremes like that for me. Ha.
Today is a conquer the world day, though it might take a drastic turn for the worse…but until it does, I hope you’re having a conquer the world day. But if you aren’t, just remember, you might have one tomorrow. And if tomorrow STILL isn’t one of those days, well, let me know, maybe we can go run in the rain together.
I leave you with some pictures of the family posing in front of our latest addition to our home! Heather, bless her heart!, found a guy who was selling these antlers (they were shed naturally) that he found on hikes around his home. She painted hers for her baby’s nursery and they look SO GOOD! We kept ours au naturel, but I still might want to paint them.
