First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone. I have received many nice comments and uplifting emails in just the few hours since I wrote this post. You have truly made me feel blessed, and the fact that all of you are supportive tells me that one negative means nothing. I’m going to carry on, and just keep being me. I love you all, truly. The craft blog circle is a vast community of wonderful women and men, and I can say that you are all wonderful. I have met so many nice people around the blogosphere, and it has been a blessing. I’m not going anywhere, and you are going to see more craftiness coming from this direction. I could not put it into words any better than this post: http://lolanovablog.blogspot.com/2008/09/vainglorious-or-it-was-fun-it-was-hard.html , thank you for posting this Alexandra!
So, I’m moving on and moving up! My boot straps having been picked up and I’m heading into more projects! I feel better already 🙂
I had a comment today that really struck a chord with me. It upset me. Not because of what the comment said, but that I may have offended some of you. That really hurt me because I love all of you readers out there and never want to do anything to offend you.
You may recall this post from two days ago. I opened a Cafe Press shop to sell Logo items. I’m gearing up for the big pattern reveal and company building for the year. I thought that I would go ahead and share these items with all of you. But, I was accused of bragging and not bringing things that you guys can use to the table. I don’t know if it was just the products or that I’ve been sharing our trip to Disney with all of you or if the commenter was just having a bad day. I’m really and truly sorry if my sharing my daughter’s big birthday at Disney really seemed like bragging. We had such a good time and I really only wanted to share it with everyone.
So, I’m asking all of you…I want genuine responses. Do you think that I brag too much? If you know me in real life, you know that I’m not much for bragging. I just want to bring you all crafts and crafting help…and throw a little in about what is happening in my real life. I’ve asked before, but I’ll ask again. What do you want to see from this blog? What is wrong and right with it? This blog is for all of you out there, and I want it to be what you want. And, just so that you know, I had a post scheduled for Monday announcing our next sew-a-longs.
All I know…is that comment really struck me to the core this morning. I apologize if I have offended any of you…it was never my intention.
