Blogging My Way

5 Oct

  I’ve been blogging since 2007!  In Internet years that seems like a lifetime.  And in that time I’ve had 3 blogs.  What I really enjoy  about blogging is that it allows me to combine my love of writing with my creative side.  So, imagine how happy I was to have come across Holly Becker’s blog Decor8 several months ago.  Holly’s blog has been very successful over the years and she is well-known in the design and home decor world.  She is also a Wall Street Journal best-selling author of the book Decor8, and she developed an e-class, Blogging Your Way, in which I readily enrolled.  I  am always looking for ways to become better at what I do regardless of what that it.  Blogging Your Way goes beyond basic blogging 101, it takes a creative, personal approach to blogging.  The e-class is designed to “help bloggers get in touch with why they are blogging, or want to blog and it shows you how to use your blog as a catalyst to create your best life.”  So you see this class isn’t just for design and decorating enthusiast, It’s designed for anyone who enjoys blogging. I’m looking forward to learning new things that will help me to be a better blogger.  If your interested in the course, there is still one day left to register.  To learn more about Holly, her blog and the course the course click here.

This Weekend, A Wedding, and A New Blog

19 Aug

I’m so glad it’s Friday!  Granted, I don’t work in the traditional sense, but I structure my week as if it were.  So, by the time Friday rolls around, I’m ready to relax with Dr. B.  As I type, I’m sitting under the hairdryer, which I absolutely cannot stand!  Do you know how long it takes locs to dry.  I normally let them air dry throughout the day, but I have a lot of things to get done today, and the last thing I want to think about is a head full of damp hair.   It want it look really nice for my brother-in-laws wedding!

He and his fiance are Buddhist, so the wedding will be a traditional Buddhist ceremony.  I’m expecting it to be visually picturesque, hopefully something like this

and this

Lastly, I started a new blog called The UpTown Atelier!  I wanted a home where I could share my off-the-grid home decorating ideas, inspiration, and DIY.  Atelier is pronounced At-Ti-Ya…it kinds rhymes with ALL Day 🙂  An Atelier is a French term for an artist’s studio or workshop. We live uptown of Downtown Orlando…hence the name The UpTown Atelier.  I was reaching huh? 🙂  Anyhoo, stop over and say hi!  Today I posted some before and after pics of my Dorothy Draper inspired entertainment center.

How are you going to enjoy this weekend?
