Starting a blog has felt a bit like getting ready for my first big date. Picking out the theme, background and pictures for the header were all harder than they ought to be. Too bad you can’t just describe what you want it to look like and presto! gorgeous blog all ready to use.
At least while I was getting the blog dressed, I didn’t have to think about what I was going to say. Making conversation in a vacuum isn’t as easy as you might think.
Maybe it will help if I visualize a less stressful analogy. Instead of being a sweaty-palmed teenager, let’s envision a fern, poking up through the leftover leaves of fall and tentatively unfolding its fronds to the spring sunshine. I like that better – adventurous but not too pushy, following the natural instinct to reach out to others.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Carol Miller. I own and run www.QuiltUniversity.com, where I also teach quilting classes. In my spare time, I love to garden, read and listen to music.
My husband is the IT person for Quilt University, while I maintain an uneasy truce with technology. If it would just stand still long enough for me to learn it all, life would be wonderful, but it seems there is always an upgrade or a new camera to master when I would rather be up to my elbows in fabric or plants.
I hope you will come back and visit as I feel my way through this new world and tell me how you deal with the constant shifts in the computerized world. Don’t they understand that change is only good when it is my idea?
