A year ago today, I wrote my first post and hit “publish.” I was excited to be taking on a new challenge, but nervous and skeptical about putting myself — my thoughts; bits about my family; my life — out onto the World Wide Web. I had my doubts: Would anyone even read my blog? Would there be enough “3s concepts” to write about in the world of design and fashion? I’m not a writer, can I actually write? But with encouragement from the talented minds at IgoeCreative, and the support from two of my decorator friends, I set aside my fear and any self-doubt, and stepped up to the plate.
I’ve spent a year finding my way through the ins-and-outs of blogging, and writing about art, design and fashion, albeit with “threes.” Moving forward into Year #2, I plan to reorganize the blog, and launch the Cecilia Walker Design site. You may find a hiccup here and there, or a week with fewer posts — this, because my family will always be my first priority, and I continue to strive for balance in our lives. Nevertheless, the blog will evolve.
Blogging has been a creative outlet for me. I’ve enjoyed making new friends with designers, readers, and those in the blogging community. I’ve been blessed with new opportunities and inspired every day. I have a lot to be grateful for.
