In the spring of this year, I started blogging knowing nothing about blogging.
I am not big computer person, and definitely not a hi-tech person.
I don’t even own a smart phone.
I literally Googled “blogging websites” to get started.
I decided to use wordpress.com as my hosting site because I liked the name better than the others listed in my search engine results (super scientific method of choosing).
Purchased the domain name, thedomesticlady.com.
And my blog was born.
I have learned a lot, but I have so much more to learn!
Here is my list of random blogging facts:
#1. Unexpectantly, blogging has become like a friend. When I have not blogged in a few days, I start to miss it.
#2. Family members now say to me all the time, “Now that’s a good thing to blog about, put it in a post” in random conversation which always cracks me up (but then again, I crack up all the time).
This actually just happened at Christmas Eve dinner. There was a discussion about my family and Duck Dynasty….and the similarities…My sweet Aunt Julie said, “Now that’s a blog post.” :)
#3. I am still shocked at how many people read my humble blog. The fact that they find me humorous is humorous to me.
#4. I am a terrible photographer.
#5. I need to take a photography class (more like many classes).
#6. I dream about writing blog posts. In my unconscious state they seem like amazing ideas….not so much once I am conscious.
#7. Usually the blog posts that I think are the most uninteresting are the ones that get the most positive feedback.
#8. I never realized how important befriending other bloggers is in making my blog a success.
#9. No matter how much I try, I am just not a crafty person.
#10. I found that I like DIY home projects much better than crafts!
#11. I am so grateful for all my readers!
#12. And I am so looking forward to this year.
Bathroom renovations, new exterior porches and landscaping, and hopefully a bead-board back-splash in the kitchen to name a few.
Happy New Year!
