I was listening to a Success CD (each month Success magazine comes with an audio CD inside) today as I drove and heard the suggestion from a marketing guru that one should blog daily. I was a bit taken a back by that frequency. Especially when I realized that my blogging efforts have been waylaid as I’ve allowed “busyness” to prevent me from my, at the minimum, weekly blogging efforts. I decided then and there that I would post a blog as soon as got home and also be more committed, once again, to the process.
What I miss about the blogging is capturing the daily trials and tribulations of Words and Watercolors. I didn’t record a post about the New Living Expo last weekend where I participated with a booth. Initially I was excited about the opportunity…thinking that thousands of people attending would all be interested in my Inspirational cards. I thought I’d sell thousands of cards! Talk about unrealistic expectations!! I sold less than the cost of the booth. Saturday morning I woke up, after a very depressing Friday evening/first day of the show, and told Mark that I was going to make lemonade out of lemons. Thankfully I was able to move my booth to a different location. I felt blessed to be sharing the booth with new friends. God knows where all this will lead, I kept telling myself. All I know for sure, to quote Oprah, I won’t have a booth at next years Expo!
A short little post….perfect for reigniting the spark of blogging…look for more tomorrow!
