 So I have a confession.... 

No I'm not about to bust out some Usher lyrics, that's for another day.  but In all seriousness, I almost gave up blogging a few months ago. Why?  Well It was getting to be so time consuming, a lot of work and I kept comparing myself to other bloggers/designers. Dumb I know.  I felt like I had to keep up with everyone which was very tiring. Dumb again.  The day I decided I was going to stop blogging was a Tuesday afternoon, The clouds were a dark gray and the smell of rain was thick in the air. I'm kidding I really don't remember the day or the weather but I do remember I had the feeling that I needed to keep blogging. But why?  Do people really like to hear about my life and look at my crazy ideas and creations?  There are already millions of blogs out there, really goods ones too, and I don't think mine will really make a difference. Will it?  Then the thought came to me, "do it for yourself, it's not about keeping up with everyone or about how many people look at your blog, it's about being a good example and doing the best that you can do and helping people along the way".  Well that sounds like  a lot of pressure if you ask me.  I don't know how great of an example I am but I can try my hardest and do the best that I can and that's all that matters.  So Here is to blogging.  I'm moving forward and I couldn't be happier.
