first of all...let me say that i NEVER intended to write a post like this.
you see, for the most part, i am a bit of an introvert. i love my down time and i really love my privacy.
don't get me wrong--i LOVE talking with people and being social, but i am not one of those people that can walk into a crowd and make instant friends with everyone.
i am more of a "one-on-one" type of gal.
it has taken me a long time to realize who i am and embrace my strengths and recognize my weaknesses.
i am pretty darn great in a lot of areas in my life, but there are other areas in which i...*a-hem* need improvement.
a LOT of improvement.
for instance, i am terrible at remembering cub scouts every wednesday for my 8 year old son.
in fact--this is what has been going down in my house every wednesday for the last 8 months-
"WHAT?? it is wednesday again? huh? do you really have scouts every week? where is your shirt? don't you have to wear your shirt?? it always at the same time? where is it again? didn't you just have scouts?? ugh. maybe we just won't go this week. i think your shirt is in the wash. how is it wednesday again?....i really need to put an alert on my i-phone for this...later"
i am also really bad at self-promotion.
i would make a HORRIBLE mary-kay lady/amway salesman/pampered chef hostess.
i would never schedule parties because i would feel like i was annoying people. forcing them be somewhere or listen to something that they have no interest in. anyone else get what i mean? (i am such a wuss.)
get a Facebook page.
get on twitter.
sign up for linked-n.
ei-yi-yi!! i would moan.
that just sounds like so much w-o-r-k!!
(insert a looooong *sigh, and me flopping down face first on the bed...)
i feared that it would be like adopting a set of quadruplets!
4 more things to have to watch over.
i have been thinking a lot lately about how stretched we all are.
there are SO many places to "be". did i really want to ask people to "go' somewhere else to "find/follow" me?
i guess i just felt like if someone wants to FIND me, they can come to my blog.
i mean...i am always at my blog. at some point during the week, i am here. the problem is that not everyone looks at blogs (gasp!). crazy, i know. and some people use these other sources almost exclusively as a way meet others.
i know that each of these social media sites has its place and function, and realize the positive aspects of broadening my horizons.
SO, i am finally caving.
this blog will always be my main source of creative outlet. this is where you can get the juicy details of my projects and what i am finding and loving and thinking.
however, starting now, you can also find me here:
facebook. (under design dump)
SO....here i am.
putting myself out there.
feel free to follow me! (and if you don't, i totally GET why)
have a happy weekend everyone!
