Finding That Purpose

Monday, Monday!  Wish it were Sunday....Not Another Monday!  Weekends seem to go by at warp speed these days.  Here we go with another week of music making and toddler tornados...

The wonderful girls over at SITS have made it easy to jump start that blogging energy this week, which I am very excited about!  I have lots of motivation Sunday evening, and by the time my foot steps into the schoolhouse, the blog plummets to the bottom of the To-Do List.  

To add even MORE motivation, you can win a beautiful new washer and dryer.  In my world, a pretty washer and dryer might make doing the laundry a little more fun!  The fun contest is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.

Today's Post Topic: Taking a Look Back at The First Post on your Blog
So, even though my blog isn't very old, it is still so fun to re-read old posts.  Here it is....

How we define ourselves and how others define us is the source of much thought and conversation, whether it be face to face or virtual.  Blogging allows us all to be an expert!  What strengths, passions, talents, ideas, or expertise do you have to share with the world?  Blogging allows us all a little piece of the world's attention, connection with other random folks out there who "march to the same drummer" we do.

Creativity in its numerous forms will be the inspiration for Articles from Addington.  Our lives, although oddly familiar from day to day, often take unexpected turns that require...creativity.  Creativity also allows an escape from that same day to day familiarity, and has been my inspiration to enter the blogging community.

We all wear many hats in life - some at different times, but more often several at the same time.  Articles from Addington will share some of the ways I wear the hats of a working mom, a wife, a musician, and someone who has an awesome craft room but struggles to generate many crafty products :-)  Hopefully my virtual musings will inspire not only those who read the "articles" but also ME, as I want to have lots to blog about.

So, cheers, to a turning over a new leaf, and adding another "hat" to my collection.  Happy Reading....

As I reread my earlier thoughts, I think my purpose and theme for Articles From Addington remains the same.  In fact, my blog has motivated me to get back in the craft room and also to take MANY more photographs.  I have also been inspired daily by the numerous blogs I read.
