A Brief Announcement
Hello Love Muffins
I like to peruse my blog stats now and again just to see who is dropping by for a peek. I've noticed a fair amount of my professional craft industry connections recently and I wanted to post today an explanation of this blog and why it's here and why I have a second craft dedicated blog.
For the first four years, this was a crazy mash up of professional and personal posts. Since I work in a fairly conservative industry and since my unfiltered personal posts, rants and essays aren't relevant to my professional career, I decided to separate the topics into two different blogs.
Mostly, I don't promote this blog unless I want to share information I think will help other people. This is a place for me to say what's on my mind without having to filter myself. I don't write about politics or personal matters or spout expletives on my other blog, but I do here. I don't link to this blog in my email signature or from my website. You have to go into my Blogger profile to find it.
Writing is my guilty pleasure and I am a woman with strong opinions. I took down four years of posts last year because I was worried about my professional contacts being offended.
I am 46 years old and I'm simply not going to hide or pretend to be someone else. Love it or leave it...this is who I am. I don't expect other people to think like I do or to agree with me. I am always willing to listen to divergent points of view with an open mind and an open heart.
If you're here looking for crafts, please visit my blog next door. If you want to read the mostly uncensored writings of a woman of substance who is a liberal independent feminist smarty panties with Zen master wishes and Taoist dreams...you've come to the right place.
Proceed with caution. We now return you to our regularly scheduled program...
