I am sitting here at my computer, preparing for a meeting this afternoon for a new project in a school, and I have just realised that yesterday was my “blogoversary”. One year ago yesterday I decided to blog about a silversmithing course that I had started to get me out of my creative rut.
Well the silversmithing course is long gone, but I’m STILL here!!
Writing this blog has been one of the best things I have ever done, I think that I have developed a lot over the past year creatively. I have started to go to life drawing again after years of being too lazy /scared/busy and have also started to paint. The creative rut is over and I think I have you to thank for that. You have spurred me on and motivated me. I find it completely weird that a bunch of people I have never met have influenced my life, but there you have it.
I have a fantastic group of friends and family who never read my blog, It just doesn’t ring their bell, and that’s fine – I wouldn’t swap them for the world. They encourage me in their own way.
I do enjoy this blogging community though.
Thank you if you have ever left a comment or if you are a lurker (I know I have readers from Italy, Spain, France, America etc.), thank you if you follow my blog and frequently read my ramblings. I am really touched that what was initially my online sketchbook has become so much more to me, and your comments make my day.
You bloggers rock!
Now I had better get on and actually do some work 🙂
