It's been 3 months since I started The Gifted Blog.
I was pretty nervous in the beginning. I felt tentative. I wanted to make sure I had enough to write about before I started a dedicated webspace to gift wrapping. I didn't want to fizzle out.
It made me too nervous to write straight into WordPress, so I began by typing drafts in Notepad. I scoured each draft, brainstormed series ideas, and made lists of future posts.
And now, with 37 posts behind me, I've loosened up a little and am really enjoying it! I am grateful to God for giving me this creative outlet.
Thank you to everyone who reads my stories. I like hearing from you in the comments and by e-mail, and am tickled every time I find out I have a new reader. Thanks also to Stephanie B, Silverkeys and Luci for the recent blog mentions. I feel a tiny bit famous.
And now I have a favor to ask. I am planning ahead for the rest of 2009's posts and want your input! My desire is for The Gifted Blog to be a dialogue, not monologue.
I have some ideas on the back burner and would love to hear: what would you like to hear about as Christmas approaches? What about an advice column? Do you already love wrapping gifts and am I preaching to the choir, or is there a specific way I can help facilitate your gift wrapping experience? Have you ever wondered what it means to wrap a manly gift? More importantly, would you like to explore with me how to wrap a manly gift?
And of course, any other ideas and feedback are welcome. Thanks!
