Well, I've finally done it. I've been wanting to start a blog for some time now, but have been hesitant to begin. For one thing, I wasn't sure I had anything of value to say, and while I can't guarantee that everything I type will be oozing with wit and wisdom, I will make every effort to keep this from being a "blah-g" - I'm actually hoping that it will be more of a "crog" (I've learned so many new words since I discovered the wonderful world of blogging, lol).

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day :)

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!!! And welcome to the world of blogging. I, too, felt I had nothing of value and worth to say when I started, and that first post was the most difficult to do. But I found as time went on, it got easier to be me, and it became almost addicting! Looking forward to see where your blog takes you!!!!!

  4. Hi Katy Lin!
    A BIG welcome to blogland or as I sometimes like to call it, the Land of Blog! Blogging is a wonderful experience, there are so many truly wonderful people out here. I wasn't sure what I could say that would be of interest either but, I've been saying it for 2 months now and people actually read my posts and come back for more. Just have fun with it and share what's in your heart and your life. That's what this is all about! Be sure to let your husband be a part of it if he wants. My hubby always has some input and really enjoys it WITH me!
    Hugs, Sherry

    Welcome to blog land. No one really thinks what they have to say about their day to day life is full of excitment. But others do.

    I'm looking forward to knowing you better as time goes on.
