My Name is Ceekay and I Am a Blogger

I have never been a socialite or a debutante…but I am a blogger.

And as often as I share that information, invariably, someone will ask, what is a blogger?

For those of us who did not grow up beating Mario on a video game or think that a cell phone is another appendage…blogging, simply put, is an online journal.

Don’t feel alone.  Four years ago I never heard the word blog.  Doctors and friends encouraged to write my feeling in a journal.  I tried, but the words seem empty and flat on the paper page.  About the same time, I found a few blogs while surfing the web.  Finally, I figured out that these were diaries, or journals, just written online.

Oooh, that seemed a little scary.  Did I want my words, my thoughts, out for anyone to read? And why would anyone want to read a blog of mine?

I decided to jump in and started my blog Thinkin’ of Home.  I chose to write about what I loved most…decorating my home.  I started not knowing how to add a picture and I certainly didn’t know what a link to another blog was!  But I learned bit by bit, by trial and error.  And surprisingly, people were visiting my blog, and leaving me encouraging comments.  I started having regular visitors, and yes, eventually blogging friends.

Blogging has opened the world to me.  Since having to take a medical retirement, it has given me challenges and opportunities that I would not have had just writing a paper journal.  When I didn’t feel like doing a tablescape for a post, I did it anyways, because it was fun and gave me something to look forward to!

There are so many talented people in blogland.  I am constantly inspired to try a craft I haven’t tried before.  I am encouraged to write my feelings and sometimes, frustrations in print, always to be uplifted by comments from people I have never and may never meet in person.

I enjoy being a Blogger….would you like to join me?

Life is wonderful, but at times, difficult. The Lord has been faithful to me through all stages in my life. I pray to be faithful to Him.
