Tonight was Open House at Dreyfoos. For the first time ever we had both girls’ Open Houses on the same night at the same place. Neil is oot, so it was up to me to go. Erica took center stage at this event since I couldn’t be in two places at the same time. She made me a cute map and wrote little notes and directions for me so that I would know where to go. I’m going to save that piece of paper forever. She was so excited when she was writing/drawing it. I took a picture of her with my heart.
I have so many opinions about this blogging thing, especially when it comes to all of the craft blogs that are out there and all of the blogs that offer giveaways. I just need to vent about this. It seems like one day someone decided to have a blog dedicated to crafting. Now there are thousands of craft blogs. That is fine, but why do they all follow the same formula? I have made the decision that eWillow.com will not be like the rest of them because honestly, it’s not how I roll. I need to stick with what comes naturally to me. No more giveaways. I want loyal readers; I don’t want people who pop by just to enter a giveaway. I also very quickly got over the “I Was Featured” thing. It boosts traffic for a day or two, and then the people go on to the next featured site. Once again, loyal followers are what I am focused on. Traffic has doubled over the past month. I’m happy about that. I don’t care if it is a slow process…I have all the time in the world. I am going to do it MY way and let the chips fall where they may.
I wasn’t accepted into the Vanderbilt research program, but I WAS accepted to visit with a physician at their clinic for 1 to 3 days. The jury is still out on whether or not I’m going.
Martha Stewart rejected me, but so what? That’s just a sign to me that I am going to continue doing things my way, and not follow a formula. I am NOT a professional photographer like so many of her Martha’s Circle bloggers are. Plus, I’ve already been accepted into the Mom Logic ad network, so who needs Martha anyway? Who died and made her the queen of all things crafty? I come up with my ideas on my own. Does she?
Okay, it’s after midnight and I hear the printer. That tells me that someone who should be fast asleep is still awake doing homework. At this hour? What’s up with that? I guess she doing things her way. I wonder whom she takes after?
