under the influence

Alice in Wonderland and her circle
Last year I  considered joining the blogging community and then suddenly like Alice in Wonderland, I fell down the rabbit hole and the rest is history.  Comments and questions in regard to the blogging world are posed daily and I am honored to answer or give advice to help one join the blogosphere or in regard to creating art.

The connections that I have made with many is like that of having my own little circle.  A kinship, a connection, has helped me to focus and to build a body of work based on daily life, people, pets, places and somehow reflects that of what make my day full.  

I welcome you, to join, to begin a blog  ~ for you will find an incredibly supportive community.
You do not need to post every day.  Your voice will find the way and the comments that you will receive will shape your world and you will feel to power of influence that will bring focus and clarity to your day.  A positive influence in shaping me and I thank each of you.  
Happy First of January 2009!

Things That Inspire said...

What a lovely, positive post for the New Year!

It is interesting how many wonderful things a blog fulfills in people's lives, whether they are bloggers or readers or both. I enjoy blogging because it is a creative outlet for me, and I enjoy reading because of the wonderful and unique images I find on blogs, and the beautiful thoughts I read from people all over the world.

I am looking forward to reading your posts in 2009!

Patricia, you have been an inspiration to so many. The comments you have made on my site have made such a difference and often kept me going one more step along the way! Thank you!

My, my, you said it so perfectly. One never really knows how blogging may change your thoughts and attitude on a daily basis. I must admit, I actually think that blogging has made me more conscientious to strangers I encounter in "the real world". I think, "that could be 'pve' or whomever".

Most wonderful and happy new year to you!

In complete agreement.
Enjoy the upcoming, "clean slate," "empty canvas," New beginning.
Funny though, monday seems like the first day of the New year, could that be because the children go back to school?

Elements of Style said...

I so agree- the best thing I've ever done is beginning my blog- a whole 670 post ago! It's such a wonderful community of genius people to learn from!

A little Mrs. PvE wisdom, warmth and witty illustration is just the thing to inspire.

Best of all possible years in 2009 and the many to come.
