Blogging has opened me up to the whole world on the internet of people that communicate, buy, sell, share, challenge, spread joy and look to each other for inspiration. Cyberspace...it's a land that is wide open and expansive and it grows everyday as new people find their way to it.
I want to thank my followers who have been checking into my blog and making comments. It encourages me to know that their are people who are actually reading what I write! People who are interested. I know there are a number of blogs that I follow and I love checking in on them and seeing what people are up to. It inspires me!
Lately there is one lady in particular whose blog I love to read. We met through Etsy.com and I'm a big admirer of her writing! She is Kristen D. Randle and her blog is http://krandle.com/kstreetjournal/ I think her writing is just awesome and I'm currently reading her book "The Only Alien on the Planet" which I love and I just started reading! I already think it should be made into a movie! So you never know who you will meet on the internet. Especially if you take the time to leave a comment on someone's blog or make contact with them in some way. You might find you make a new friend, or like to trade ideas or art or website links. ...it sounds cliché but you just never know who you will meet unless you take the first step.
There are three artists I'd like to mention that I've enjoyed meeting since I've been on the internet with my blog and using social media. The first one is Juli Ryan. When I say "meet" it is through emails and correspondence on Facebook and Twitter or through Etsy or blogging. Someday maybe I will be able to meet Juli in person and go to one of her art shows because I just love her paintings filled with enchantment and color!
