#1 Has she gone crazy.
So, I have really started to commit to my blog and start getting it out there. I moved from Arizona and all my family and friends to a small town in Utah. Overnight I had lots of time on my hands and nothing really to fill it. I love to do anything and everything crafty. So, I thought I would begin blogging to stay connected and to share my work. Anyway, if you're a blogger you understand the mountain you have to climb to get from point A to Z.
It's been a few months and WOW I have come along way. I have a few more ups then downs, but man the downs are a bummer. Thursday I hit my blogging overload... Have you been there? I feel like I was on information overload. I'm so thankful for so many great bloggers sharing great info, but I was in the middle of reading this great post, 8 Tips to Maximize Your Google+ Presence by Jenny @ The NY Melrose Family.
Something I knew nothing about before blogging. I finished reading step 1 and it went over my head. I could understand the words, but at first I couldn't figure out what she was saying to do. UGHHHHH! I began yelling at my computer as if that would help. My husband was looking at me like I had gone crazy. And there it was the start of my melt down. I was tired of reading something great, that made me realize I was doing things wrong, yet again.
So, my husband slowly approached me like I was a wild animal and ask, "What is wrong?" (bless his heart I'm sure he wasn't expecting what followed. I began ranting and ranting and ranting. Spitting out random words like SEO, Pin it Button, Link Party,Google+, that made him go WHAT???? He really had to talk me away from the edge. He helped me regroup and focus on why I was blogging. To connect, to create friendships, to share. He asked me to set 1 goal to work towards. So, I looked at him and said I want more followers, my first goal is 15. He then RAN out the door to work. (Just kidding backed away slowly I could attack again)
This is why I have a great husband. Later that day I logged on my blog and saw I had 2 more followers. I jumped for joy and as I looked to see who these lovely people were. I saw one of them was my husband. He just made me smile and believe he would do anything to make me happy.
