Why I Blog
Why do I blog? Ever since I learned to hold a pencil, I’ve enjoyed writing. I used to want to be an author. However, while I can give you a million story-starters, it’s hard for me to finish one.
I started sewing in middle school at 4H camp. I fell in love. I love all things beautiful, and I love making ugly things look pretty again. Blogging combines my love of writing and sewing. How did I get started? My sophomore year of high school, I took a web design class. One of our projects was to create a WordPress blog. At the time I didn’t know what to blog about, so the blog sat empty. Then recently I discovered that sewing blogs aren’t at all uncommon, and I thought, “Hey, I can do that!” The rest, as they say, is history.
