Crocheted Jewelry

I love making jewelry, and I really really love crocheting, so I decided to combine the two into making crocheted pieces of jewelry. It's different crocheting with thin threads or cord than it is crocheting with regular yarn, but I'm getting the hang of it. I've made some earrings that I like, and a necklace, too!

Learning How to Blog

I'm pretty computer savvy, spending a lot of time on the Internet and my husband being in the computer field. I've had personal websites, professional websites...I've done research...I make purchases...I like playing on-line games...I have visited chat rooms and message boards before...I sell handmade items on-line, too (http://alisondesigns.etsy.com/ and http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZatruslow)

So you would think I would know what to do with a blog! sss

But I don't. This is a totally foreign concept to me. Maybe I'm too old - maybe I jumped on the bandwagon kind of late in the game, I don't know. What is a blog supposed to be? An on-line journal? A way to advertise your business? A place to make friends? And who reads blogs? Other bloggers? People looking for on-line pals with the same interests? People visiting just to promote their own businesses?

I'm not sure why I'm starting a blog. I guess since everyone is doing it, I feel like I ought to give it a shot myself. I hope I get better at it soon. Oh, well, signing off now - I suppose I'll be back later, lol.
