As I sit each morning on my computer for four to five hours before I head out for my other job, I find myself wondering, why am I doing this?? After pondering that question for awhile, here’s what I found out..
I started my first blog to showcase my photography.
I sell on Etsy and at shows, mostly because I simply love taking pictures! Helen Fern Originals has very few followers and, most recently, has not been kept up like it should be. But is served it’s purpose. I can share my photos with anyone that wants to see them and I get some great feedback from time to time.
Then I started this blog – The Pleasures of the NW – I love where I live. I love to show people the awesome places and to cook the fresh bounty that is so readily available.
But time constraints don’t allow me to travel around the area like I want to – and I found myself cooking a lot – and not just NW specialties.
Finding myself in the kitchen and discovering that I loved to create recipes, I put together the Lazy Gastronome!
This seems to be the blog I spend most of my time on – the kitchen my favorite room in the house! Ideas just keep coming and living in the NW, fresh food just keep finding their way into my kitchen!
Now that I’ve been blogging for a couple of years I find I love everything about blogging. I love the creating and writing – I love to community of support and sharing. Bloggers don’t compete – they help and support each other. I haven’t met a blogger yet that doesn’t want to lend a hand when I have questions. Blogging keeps me busy and I’ve made some great friends while I share my passions with others.
So tell me,
