This could be complete madness, well if you ask my lovely Sondra she'll say it is (hi honey!). I've signed up for Tinniegirl's "Blogtoberfest 2009". Blogging once a day for the month of October. Yep, madness.
I'm not really much of a joiner, well in some ways I'm not. I'm pretty independent and don't really feel the need to be part of a group. So as far as blogging goes I'm not that great at being super friendly and inviting people in. I don't think I invite conversation here. I'm sort of a here it is take it or leave it kinda lady for lots of reasons. That's what's so hilarious about blogging, well for me. Sondra says "you just do it to get feedback and people to tell you you're good" and I'm like "no I don't, it's so I can share my crafty with like minded crafty". But she does have a point, I do get a kick out of comments, out of feedback on something I've made. I'm a fringe dweller for sure, much happier to sit on the sidelines. I also don't share a lot of personal feely type stuff here. It is a craft blog after all and I figure it's my happy place to share the happy! You don't want to see my skeletons for sure, they're reserved for my shrink and Sondra!
You know what else, since I'm on a soapbox of sorts. What I've also noticed lately is all of the Aussie craft bloggers! I think I must have been under a rock these past 3 or so years and missed the explosion. All of a sudden I've come up for air and WHAM there you all are! It's fabulous. When I started blogging there were literally only a handful of Aussie craft bloggers. Now, there's oodles of us and it's pretty darn cool. I've recently been doing some house cleaning here and have changed my sidebar links, come out of your RSS readers and check out my list of Aussie craft bloggers.
I've also decided that we'll do a little giveaway as part of Blogtoberfest, since that also brings you guys out of the woodwork, everyone loves freebies! But you gotta be quick. Next Tuesday, 6 October, is my birthday. Drop in, leave a comment between now and then, tell me something, leave me a link to something you want to share, could be a tutorial or a crafty picture or crafty supplies, or just drop in and say hi or tell a joke, make sure you include your email address. We'll draw it on Wednesday 7th October. What can you win? Well a couple of you can take your pick from the store, one item. It could be a pendant, or you might want the apple pincushion pattern (and of course I'll throw in a kit) or even a finished apple. We can work it out later.
Ok, well that's enough talking. See you tomorrow! EEEEP.
P.S. Belated birthday boobie hugs WezzieJ.
