I debated the idea of starting a blog for over a year. While I wanted to, and thought that I could make it interesting for other beaders to read, the insecurities arose. What if no one reads it? Then, strangely enough, what if people do read it? What if they don't like it? What if they think that it is silly? What if they wonder why I am blogging at all?
I had to stop thinking about the reasons why not to, and just do it. So I said to myself, Self (because that is what I call myself) if people don't like it, they won't read it. You can't please everyone. I am only going to try and please myself. Write about stringing beads to make jewelry, because that is what I love to do. And if that is interesting to people, great and if not, oh well. I will probably still make the stuff anyway.
I just signed up for a bead soup party. Hopefully that will send people to my blog, and maybe they read something that interests them. You never know, we'll see.
