Me, Myself and my Blog...

Well, well, well... How are you? Are you enjoying 2011 so far? January is a nice month... yeah, yeah... It's a fresh start for everything... It's in January that usually people start dieting, or implementing a resolution. It's a beginning of something... I've got married in January... 13 years ago... It's been very cool to be married... I am very happy... But I don't want to talk about marriage now... hehehe... Let's talk about being a blogger.

I was thinking the other day, that this January is also nice because I'm a blogger. Sounds crazy? I know... but it's cool for me knowing I am starting this year with the blog I said last year I was going to have...

It's been 6 months already and am very happy. Just 24 followers so far, but I like the idea of knowing someone is reading my posts, maybe getting inspiration, laughing about them, or just out of curiosity, they find them interesting.




I am a blogger. And it's cool. And if you know me, you know I had to put it in a layout.




I tried to express what being a blogger means to me... It's like I have a lot of things in my mind I want to say, but this is the internet... I have to be careful. Hahahahaha...


Being a blogger is about me, and also about others... the readers, other bloggers, the followers, all who is somehow touched by my blog.

It's about writing, expressing, explaining, describing, saying... Have fun while learning, sharing, and just be you...

The layout needed to reflect my imperfection... no simetry... human touch with handwriting... Since the page is about the blog, I used a photo of the computer monitor showing my first post... but the Basic Gray paper with the woman silhoutte is just perfect because is like I'm represented by it... and all the things in my mind with the paper design showing different symbols and shapes...
I liked the way I could use a portion of a packaging to interrupt the paper paper at left and adding interest and balance. The title is imperfect... different shapes and sizes of the letters... because being imperfect is one of the things I always mention in my blog.

So I hope you liked my layout expression of me being a blogger... and celebrate with me the first 6 months of Wine, Cheese & Scrapbooking blog.
Are you a blogger?
Why?
Tell me about it.

Felicidades Edel ! Me gusto mucho tu trabajo.
La idea de ser blogger es interesante y creativa.
Entonces soy blogger, me gusta compartir mis labores manuales, mi arte, con todos. Quiero que en este 2011 me intrese mas por mi Blog y compartir mas que una pagina de algun album, quiero decir todo cuanto me gusta la vida.
Gracias por compartir tus ideas.
Abrazos, Myrna
