One Year Blogoversary
Four years ago a family member began blogging. He sent us all his link via e-mail, I checked it and thought"oh that looks interesting", and promptly forgot to bookmark the url. I grew tired of continuously asking him to send me his blog link and gradually I forgot about blogging.
Until a year ago that is. I had been reading more and more sewing blogs and decided a blog would be fun! It could be used as a sewing diary as well as a place to keep track of my ever growing sewing pattern collection. Besides, I heard rumors of the beginnings of a blog at work so I *needed* to know how to do one!
But a name, I needed a name. All the cute and clever ones were taken. But then I remembered that one of the first sewing blogs I read was simply titled Stacy Sews. So I created a blog and titled it Sharon Sews....direct and to the point. I didn't think that I would end up writing about more than just sewing. By the way Stacy, I never thanked you for the name inspiration ...
Once I had the blog set up I had *no* idea what in the world I would even begin to write about! Well yea, I knew I wanted to write about sewing, but what about it? But of course I had to do it right away so my first ever silly little post was about a retro Betsey Johnson pattern I had just purchased off of (where else) eBay. You know, I'm still looking for the right fabric for that one, LOL!
Over the past year I have found so many wonderful blogs on such a wide variety of topics! The ones I read on a regular basis, well I feel like I've gotten to know the authors just a bit. Some of you I've had the opportunity to communicate with via email. The comments you leave for me give me an insight into your personalities also, even if you aren't a blogger. There are many of you that I would really like to go grab a cup coffee so we could spend some face-to-face time together. I like to think that you feel the same way about me.
Just think, only a year ago I was living my life blissfully unaware of this incredible online community of bloggers. So here's to one year of blogging and many more to follow. Pin It
