April's Newberry Eagle Interview:

Please scroll down for The Letter "W",  which is the next post down.

Back in March, a reporter from the The Newberry Eagle, Wendy Korn, came to interview me.  The Newberry Eagle is a monthly community newspaper, and they were doing an Arts and Entertainment special for the month of April.  In the article about me, Wendy focused on "The Art of Blogging".   

I have been waiting to see if it would come out in a digital format, but so far it hasn't, so I scanned the article and am putting it on here for you to see, before more time goes by.  Sorry that it is a little blurry, but it is all I have to offer today!

It isn't my favorite picture in the world of me, but Wendy really did a great job on the article, and others seem to like the picture fine. Sure glad that we got our new well, so that my hair is no longer this orange-red!  

It is true that once you get your blog set up that you can spend a couple of hours a week on it.  I have consistently spent at least 4 hours a day (or more) for 2 1/2 years though, to get all of this accomplished.  I have had a lot of time on my hands during this same time though, have no kids at home, and a supportive husband.

Now, I'm working on getting a store front for my craft business.  I'll let you know more about that as the project progresses.

If you miss a day, you miss a lot!  Don't miss out on the news ... Please click here to go to my home page and see what is happening in Mayberry today.
