Friend Friday- Lessons Learned

A special Friend Friday for me today, my best friend since kindergarten is coming to visit for the weekend (bummer it is going to rain the whole time). Look out honey you may want to hide in the garage because a lot of shopping, wine, snacks and giggling is headed your way.

Also today is Modly Chic's Friend Friday:

Question: What have been the 5 hardest blogging lessons you’ve learned during this process that have helped make you a better blogger?
Answers: (I am doing only 4, hope that is ok)

1. Technology- I would say thus far the technical piece of having a blog is by far the hardest lesson. When I started I had no idea what html code even was?  add a link?  how the heck do you do that?  I still have a long way to go on learning this stuff, but proud of what I have accomplished so far in my blogging journey.

2. Perfection- Every post is not going to be perfect or interest others out there in the blog world (I need to remember that!)  I tend have high expectations and pressure myself to make it perfect.  I do this blog for myself as a creative outlet, having comments and friends is such a wonderful bonus.  

3. Photos- Taking photos of myself as to be one of the most akward parts of doing this blog.  I always have to tell the hubby... "This is my signatutre move".  Come on, who am I kidding, it's just bad, I can't pose!  Oh well, something to work on. Maybe I can get Tyra Banks come to my house and give me posing lessons?  Practice, Practice, Practice. 

4. Promoting- I am not very good at promoting my blog on Facebook or Twitter.. I don't even know how to tweet? Someday I hope to step outside my comfort level and get out there.... but for now, I am happy with all the lovely blogging friends I have made...... such a treat having you in my life!
