I have been receiving some increased traffic on my blog, and it is tremendous! I've gone from only one reader to several regulars, with the odd person popping in off of a Google search. I only hope that I haven't been disappointing. I'm thinking about sharing an essay I've started, but I'm unsure if I should as it is long and isn't finished yet. After the class I took this summer (read about the program here), I consider myself to be a writer, but I haven't written much other than this blog, a poem here and there, and this essay. Nothing I've written has ever been published (not that I've tried). I guess you could say I'm dealing with the normal feelings of insecurity.
On a more positive side, I've been linked! Clare of Three Beautiful Things has added me to the list of people that have done what she has (blog about three beautiful things she has seen that day). Hooray! It's the first instance I've seen of someone providing a link to my blog. I have updated the list of my favorite blogs so you can see who I've been reading lately.
I have also noticed that some of the blogs that have been in my favorites for a while are getting cross traffic. People linking to their blogs via the link on mine. Hooray! It's like a college dorm here on the internet, everyone's doors open and people poking their heads in.
PS I AM going to do the save the dates - I just need to buy cardstock and postcard envelopes. The design is all done. Guess what Bear said - "Can you make all of the invitations look exactly like that?" Who does he think I am, Wonder Woman (or Martha Stewart)?!
