First day in class


The first of Shimelle’s classes that I have signed up for – Blogging for Scrapbookers – started today and my motivational levels are high! I’m hoping the class will inspire me to create layouts because I just haven’t been “feeling it” for several months now. I think what happened is that I’ve had inspiration overload from all the gorgeous crafty blogs I read and my mojo just curled up and died in the face of the ‘competition’. In the meantime I developed a love for wedding blogs/magazines and scrapping took a back seat.
As I’m just new to this blogging malarkey I thought some prompts from the master might help me along and increase the number of readers I have. (I usually clap with glee when I see someone has visited.)
To all my fellow classmates, I look forward to reading your fab blogs and thanks in advance to anyone who visits mine :)

Over the space of the next 3 weeks I promise not to:
· beat myself up if I don’t post
· think that my life isn’t interesting enough to blog about
· compare my blog to others’ and feel inferior.
(oh dear!)

Oh my goodness, what brilliant promises! I am always thinking my life isn't interesting enough, and my blog is inferior! I think those are very wise words.

I spend most of my time online drooling over other people's blogs and feeling inferior! I'm definitely going to try not to do that anymore - instead I'll try to comment on their blogs so they know what I appreciate about them. Good luck with the class! x

I think you've got a great list of goals (or non-goals) for class! I don't blame you one bit for enjoying scanning the web for wedding stuff more than scrappy stuff - not a thing wrong with that! Sometimes our creativity just needs a break! I hope to see some of your work soon! ~april (from BfS class)

Great idea on the promises to yourself; I love that idea not to compare yourself and feel inferior. I need that reminder too! Can't wait to hear more about your wedding planning and srapping :) - Sharyn from Shimelle's class
