But, after scouting the neighborhood, reading some really good books (Tara Frey's Blogging for Bliss was particularly helpful) and pouring over every issue of Artful Blogging, I'm ready to take a chance. I'm ready to step out of the shadows, introduce myself and invite you in for a chat. And next time I'm in your neighborhood, I'll be sure to leave a little note letting you know I've been there and how much I liked your artwork, or gardens, or your thoughts for the day.
So now the last thing to do is pick a photo or two to include with this maiden post. It's been a long winter here in Michigan, with snow still on the ground, so no photos of the current landscape please. Maybe one from last summer. I know just that one! And maybe one or two that will tell you a little about the things I cherish as objects of my affection.
