So I am sitting here thinking about how I am blogging and in April I had absolutely no idea about blogging. When I decided to attempt to open my store Henrietta’s Hippo I was told social media was a must. So I opened my face book account and someone set me up on a blog on google. I had no idea what I was doing and had one follower in six months. My daughter came home from college and read the blog, and her sweet way NOT, said this is pathetic. She proceeded to teach me how to blog. She has a blog and if not mistaken has two thousand followers so I guess she knows what she is talking about. For the first two months she edited inserted photos and taught me how to write and blog. I am no where near the level she is and have much to learn and perfect but I am now blogging on my own and have been nominated for four awards. I am shocked truly cannot believe that I am doing this and people are actually following me and better yet really like my blog. I realize for those who have been doing this for awhile probably can’t understand the significance of this. I was married for twenty two years when I divorced. I guess you can say that I was in a abusive marriage as I was told that I couldn’t do anything on my own and basically stupid. After awhile you start to believe what is told over and over and become fearful to leave or attempt to accomplish anything on your own. I finally left, got sober and here I am one year later paying my bills, raising my children and blogging. None of this has been easy but I am more confident and truly happy in years. I am starting to learn that if I am tenacious enough I can do anything and will be successful.
Clanmother Has nominated me for theVery Inspiring Blogger award. I am very honored. I very much appreciate what she says on her profile. Blogger, photographer and Life-Long learner. I to want to be a life long learner, continue to grow and enjoy life while I am doing this. If I have inspired her than I am truly accomplishing something.
TheBowtieButterfly Has nominated me for Beautiful blogger award. How amazing is this! It really thrills me that my blog is considered beautiful. Most times when I post pictures I’m not sure if they are appropriate for the content or even interesting. But this award makes me feel like I am doing it right, and other people see the beauty in some of the same things I do.
Jessica at I adopted a dog now what Nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. When she notified me she said that she liked how I incorporated my dogs into my blog. I needed to hear this as I feel vindicated my daughter is always giving me grief for inserting photos of my dogs. She claims they have no place in the blog as its about home decor, I disagree as they are one of my biggest support in life. I adore dogs I love other peoples dogs and love to talk and show mine off! Thank You Jessica!!!I am going to take my time into deciding who I am going to pass these awards onto as I consider them a great honor. So Jessica this picture is for you Thank you again for the award. Ferris and Baloo are honored to!
