Happy Birthday OSC!

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Saturday was this little blog’s first birthday (yes, it’s true – I really started a blog a few days before Christmas last year – I am that nuts). I’d thought about starting a blog for months, and I finally decided one day to just do it. What did I have to lose?

A year later, I’m so glad I took the leap. Y’all inspire me to tackle difficult projects and to push the envelope of my comfort zone. You also “get it” when I’m insanely excited about spray paint or my latest flea-tique store find.

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking time to read my ramblings each week, and thank you for all that you give back to me. I truly appreciate it.

I have a few series planned, a new (more user friendly) blog design in the works, and a few other plans up my sleeve for 2010 so stay close.

XOXO - AnNicole

Can't think of a better time than the end of one year to take on a project such as blogging - look at what all you've done in the past year!

Please give me some advice. I have lots of friends and when I email them one of my blog postings, they click it on and read it. But no one will click on followers and encourage me by following the blog. I have lung cancer and my blog is my way of feeling in touch with the rest of the world. It is also my way to escape. Please tell me what to do to get the blog read by others. I cry and pray about the blog every day. I don't know where to turn. Sincerely, nancy
