So… hello, blog. Here I am!
It’s been a while since I’ve made the time for my blog. I love blogging—really, I do! It’s just that pesky life that gets in the way. When you have four kids, you homeschool two/three of them and you work from home as a part-time graphic designer, life is… beautifully overwhelming. And interesting. Always interesting! I want to blog about it—without having the entire process take over my free time!
So, I gave up on it.
That’s when a comment from a friend made me think about blogging in a new way. We were talking about how I’m almost done with my Project Life album—which is SO exciting! I’ve captured all of 2012. I’ve slipped my last photo into my binder! Now, I have to still decoratively scrap all the little cards from mid-September until the end of the year. But in one sense, I’m done. Totally done—I did it.
So, when I share this with my friends in the forum at SSD, they say “Show us!” And I laugh and say that I don’t have the time. All that photographing. All that photo editing. It would eat up the time I have for the actual scrapping!
So, then my friend Jen says, “One word for you: INSTAGRAM!”
But I use Instagram so much for the pics for my album, I don’t want to clutter it up with pics OF the album. LOL!
And then it hit me as I was cooking dinner tonight: I bet there’s an app for that!
And there is! There’s a WP app! And through the app, I can blog. But better yet—I can take pics right off my camera roll, like this:
(That’s a page in progress that the same friend, Jen, begged me to take back in December.)
So, hello blog! I’ve missed you. Technology has brought us closer once again. It’s time to get chatty!
