New Projects Rock!

I love to write. I love that my daughter loves to write. I am so blessed to be afforded the time to write. Therefore, blogging has just fit into my life like an old pair of sneakers (definitely not ones used in exercise, though).

It has been years since I have been this prolific in my writing. Sad, really. But I am back in the swing and calling it a type of therapy. I don't aspire to write professionally, though Hubby thinks I might be good at that, I just enjoy it as a pastime and hobby.

I want to thank Julochka, Spud and Extranjera for being such amazing writers to inspire and model and hopefully not scare the daylights out of...

I am starting a new project for myself. Since I have not been in the blog culture for very long, I don't have any idea if it has been "done", but frankly - I don't care. That is part of what makes the Blogosphere such a wonderful place. I can do what I want (within reason) and no one cares. If they want to read, they do, and if not - no worries. I am doing this for me and to inspire my daughter. I am going to start a Bucket List.

I am sure you know what I am talking about. That list you make (like in the movie) of things you want to do before you kick the bucket, die, go belly up... Ideally, these are things you can actually do before you buy the farm. But some are things I can only hope someday to get close to.

A quick aside: Thanks to the small list of readers I have acquired. I can only hope I don't bore you to tears or scare you running down the street away from your computer screens! Those secrets were pretty scary! Thanks for sticking with me!

  1. Stacey, I have come to love your posts, and your writing. I could have written the first three paragraphs of this post substituting daughter for son who loves to write. I too love, neh, need to write even though I think I'm really average. I do it for my need to get the verbage out of my head.

    I am so impressed with your new project that I have decided to do it with you. I'm quite sure that you've just started the next "group of lists" trend in our blogging community. How many do you have on your list? I'll bet when I write them down I'll find about 20-30 big and little things.

    I personally am neither bored with nor running from from your blog. Your secrets were fantastic (I'm still reading them) and I plan on staying right here.

  2. Liz:
    You make me smile! Thanks so much. In this world that is so often screaming by, you remind me to slow down and take it in, if even for a moment. You never know who might be watching and what impact you might have.

    I am so happy to hear your voice again. I truly missed you! I hope you just keep climbing...

    I am working toward 20 Bucket List Items... I am up to 15 so far.

    Thanks again for the encouragement!
