There are over 150 million public blogs in existence. That's about one blog for every two people in the United States. I never realized blogging was such a big thing. Sure, I follow blogs and anxiously await the next post (I'm looking at you hyperboleandahalf), but half the US population worth?
One of my favorite quotes is "If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything." This will definitely hold true for my blog. I'm an accountant. I'm super-crafty. I love to cook, bake, sew, snorgle my dogs, walk around, get lost, meet people, drink beer, be silly, and enjoy life. My blog will involve all of this and much, much more.
I was sewing a dress a few months ago and I needed to figure out how to modify the pattern to fit me. I was making a fairly popular indy pattern. I scoured the innerwebs to find the modification I needed and couldn't find anything. I had to figure this thing out on my own. After I successfully completed my dress, I thought to myself how I should start a blog because I do know a few things that could be useful to people. It was that moment of frustration that pushed me from "meh" to "yeah!" on joining the blogging public at large.
Here are a few things I have in the works: a recently completed sexy/sassy apron, a black convertible dress, and a 30-day backpacking trip in Central America (!!!!!). I welcome your questions and feedback. You may email me at ellelittleblogATgmailDOTcom
And now I'm a blogger too! (cursor hovering over "publish")
