Wow, its been a whole year since I first found out about the annual Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom. I had only been blogging for a few months and wasn’t even sure I’d be able to keep up, but I did and I’ve never looked back (OK, that’s not quite true–I’m constantly looking back to see what I missed, who’s following me or if that really was the exit I was supposed to take).
In looking at my post from last year, I have to say I think I sounded so naive and enthusiastic; like a little kid–which I was when it came to blogging. Some things have changed since I first joined up for the UBP, although most of the basics have not. I still have my full-time job at the community college, but my part-time job at Le Woof has ended. The economy took its toll on that one; although the owner is still maintaining her web-based store.
I am still working at my home-based business; ABC Spa Escape with BeautiControl has been chugging along pretty well. In fact, I’ve even entered a prize for you to win at our blog party this year. If you like luxurious body products, be sure to enter to win the Therma del Sol Awaken Body Wash & Body Lotion set that I’m giving away as part of UPB2012.
I’m also still struggling to keep the house from falling down; dealing with a severely-depressed room mate, 3 cats and a neurotic dog. My time management skills are improving a little, thanks to a lot of hard work and several pocket and electronic calendars I keep handy!
By this time next year, I hope to have become much more comfortable with Vlogging. Sure I’ve bought the web-cam (OK, I’ve bought 2 so far and keep setting them down somewhere, but that’s another story); now I just have to learn to relax in front of the camera. Seriously though, it is one of my blogging goals, because I really enjoy having this little plot of internet here.
Its a place that I can invite friends to; introducing people like you, to people like me and the things I enjoy; and finding out who you are too! So please feel free to leave me some comments, bookmark my site; or better yet, you can subscribe by signing up on the right.
Thanks for stopping by, and I can’t wait to come by and visit your little corner of the internet too!
