Ok, so here I go, my first attempt at blogging.. The hardest part so far has been figuring out exactly what it is I should blog about.. Should I only blog when inspiration strikes? Or should I start to blog and hope that it comes to me? I'm opting for the second choice. It seems that ideas flood my head when I'm tootling around in my studio, in the shower, or driving to Hobby Lobby and I think, "that would make a fantastic topic to blog about" and then when it comes to actually sitting down to put those thoughts into writing, poof... a blank.
As I sit here, a few ideas are coming to me. I'm going to jot them down here so that I can come back and post on them later.
1. My thoughts on the overuse of the phrases "as I embark on my new journey" and "as I begin the next chapter of my life".
2. I would like to make a list of the things that I know with absolute certainty that I would NEVER do, challenging the "never say never" saying. For example I can say, "I know with absolute certainty that I will NEVER hang a velvet portrait of Elvis Presley in my dining room." (I'm not sure this will be an interesting topic to others, but there are things that I would like to document and why not share them?)
3. I would like to explore some deeper thoughts on the power and magic of believing.
4. My story of embarking on this new journey with Chapin Studios and Gallery and beginning this next chapter of my life.
5.. Oh, and since this is an art website, I should probably write a blog or two about art. Which I will do, with pleasure.
Now I'm anxious to get started. So, please stay tuned and let's see if this blogging thing works out. Until next time....
Nicole signing out.
