Learning the Art of Blogging, oh My!

I have yet to unlock the key to effective consistent blogging.  I love put pen to paper or rather fingers to keystrokes, and I truly do love the idea of communicating thoughts, ideas, and sharing prose through a blog that reaches out and touches my readers in various ways.

I am not technically gifted to understand the intricacies of of the dashboard where all creative bloggers go to design those pages that draw you in, and I do not totally comprehend how to get those wonderful links to various products that we crafters, designers and homemakers want to "click" on to find out more .......

I would love to learn to share tutorials, mine and others, to engage followers and to be considered one of the must follow bloggers! Now wouldn't that be wonderful?

So I am off to the bookstore to find the book or books that will guide me through the world of blogging.

I will also get out my calendar and commit to dedicated blogging time so that it is not months between my entries and I will in 2015 work towards my goals regarding my alter ego of FarmGirl Sister and that will be my theme of posts, chronicling each achievement and even set back as I go.

You will see me organize my chaotic home and studio; you will get your hands dirty as we design and plant my garden this Spring; you will come right along with me as I tackle projects and repurposing challenges for my store Gladiola's Vintage Market in Branson West; and if you follow along for the hard stuff, you will be rewarded by going along on my very fun pickin' trips.

Oh I know you have heard this from me before.  After years as a caregiver for my Mom, and taking the last year to grieve at her passing, I want to work to accomplish those things she always encouraged me to do.  My Mom was my biggest fan and I want to show her even now as she watches over me, that I really can do the things she always knew I could!

Meet Eula, my pick up pickin' buddy

Crafting parties in my dining room! here I go, off to learn to be a blogger you want to know!
I so hope you decide to follow along for the ride.

-til tomorrow, Stormy
