I'm so excited, and have you lovely followers, friends and family to thank for all the positive feedback on my little blog,
for the quill and ink.
Something I do take seriously and hold close to my heart. For me, this blog is all about creative inspiration, a rant here and there, and an insight into my 24 year old life here in Brisbane Australia. It's also a place where I can share my design and collective (beautiful image hording) talents.
It's been well over a year now, and I'm so proud that my little project is still going strong. I have even managed to inspire some of you good folk -- which to me is an incredible bonus.
I was first inspired to begin my blog when I moved back to my parents house in Inverell, New South Wales in March last year, when I came upon the rockstar diaries. I've mentioned her many times and can't say enough how much I love this blog. Taza, her Husband and Kingsley tell a simple and gorgeous story about life, as they know it - as it is. And it's lovely. From New York to DC their story is always one that grabs my attention. Since then I've been living in Brisbane (again) for just over a year, sometimes you just need a good time-out when life gets a little too hectic - and that's exactly what that three month stint at home did for me. It's the Sunshine State and even though winter has been a little nippy - you be hard pressed to find better weather anywhere else. You should visit sometime!
Being a major twittererererer, I've also gained the following (and follow) some amazing creative people both in Australia and worldwide, and apart from getting a kick out of tweeting, I can't recommend enough what a valuable networking tool this really is -it has coincided with my blog effortlessly. I'm always on the lookout for more inspiring people too, so feel free to send me a link to your blog, webpage or twitter account - I'd love to know what creative talents you have hidden up your sleeve.
It's cheesy, but I always get excited and run to Andy or Amy saying 'I've got a new follower!' accompanied by a wee dance or a huge grin - it truly makes my day.
Forgive my rant, but I'm in such a fine mood today and after an easy day at work, I'm at home in the lounge blogging away in the company of my lil sis and Weasley, that I just had to say
You may not realise it, but having this blog and your following friendships makes the day a little bit brighter.
Enjoy your Tuesday evening. I shall mine.
