“Trust that an ending is followed by a beginning.”
There’s a nip in the air tonight, something I can’t fathom just yet. Could it be that winter’s bare limbs are reaching out, taunting us, teasing us?
I took the last couple of days off from blogging in general to refocus and replenish an all but diminished creative uh, flame, if you can call it that. It did a world of good and everything is splendid again.
This coming week, My Cozey Second Life (the original title of this blog) will be turning 3. Like the hyper, over extended toddler era of yesterday, this blog has had its share of growth, maybe some booboos and tons of support from you fellow lurkers.
I remember the first time Cozey was accepted into SL Blogger Support and feeling like kid peering into this whole other world, a whole other community offline, and scratching my head thinking, “Who on earth would ever think this stuff is relevant to SL?”. My how the turn tables have, uh, turned. Tables have turned, yeah something like that.
If someone were to asked me today what have I learned so far, my answer would be, “To never stop learning.” Styling, pictures, social media, getting your blog visibility, that’s all well and good, but if I am not learning, or having any fun doing so, blogging can totally burn out even the best of us.
And yet we press on. (See what I did there?)
After today’s posting CozeySL will have published 650 articles with a reach of about 2000 readers, here at WordPress, Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter combined. I like to pretend that Cozey is a teeny little entity whom I take care of judiciously. Try to trim off the fat out of her diet (800 words or less!), not too many sweets after the meal (someone say giveaway?) and yet I still love spoiling Cozey. (WordPress Upgrades!)
The blogosphere can be a scary and noisy place. All toddlers must grow to stand, to mature, and to change. And change can be beautiful.
