Blog Routine, Plans, and WIPs

Hi there, blogging types!

I've decided that I'm going to try and do this bit every Sunday. That leaves the other nine websites "on a whim" and means this will be my consistent update. Occasionally I won't have internet access and it may have to be scheduled ahead of time or late, but I'd like to try to keep a routine. It'll keep me on my toes and it will give a steady answer to the question, "why hasn't anything been posted in a while?". So on that plan of action, I'd like to give you my weekly thoughts-that-keep-me-awake and works in progress.

A General Introduction

It occurs to me that people who use Blogspot may not be familiar with me already. I like to believe my minor amount of e-fame has given me recognition, but I know in reality I'm just another voice looking to be heard. So, here is who I am:

First and foremost, I consider myself to be an artist. Experience has informed me that most people take this to mean that I paint. Indeed, I am a terrible painter and shouldn't be let around the stuff. I am an artisan, working in thread and needles, often throwing beads into the mix. I'm selling many of those creations through Etsy, [here]. My main crafts are cross-stitching and beading, and on occasion I've tried latch-hook, embroidery, punch-needle, glass painting, foil-scratching, embroidery on paper, and drawing. I wish that I knew how to knit and crochet, and some day I hope to learn to make quilts. Doing all this, I've slowly learned to do photography (digital) of small objects up close, and how to edit those photos to show true color or remove blurs.

Starting a Blog

Hello Blogging Types,

Word from deviantART's jamberry-song (and general ShareZone members) is that starting a blog will help boost my sales and overall exposure!

Chances are, many of my posts here will consist of what my usual deviantART journals are, but there's always the possibility I'll run around ranting about this, that, or the other thing!

I bead, I cross-stitch, and sometimes dabble in other crafty arts.

Until I figure this out,
