Monday Me Hop

Well, it's Thursday again, (Wednesday really, but I'm trying to get a head start!) and that means it's time to link up with Cinnamon for her Monday Me Hop. She definitely has the habit of making me really think about my answers to the questions she poses to us on Mondays. For both the headache from thinking too hard and the soul searching you make me do, Thank you Cinnamon. I'm glad you started this hop and I really hope you continue it. This weeks questions were...

*When have you been the most impressed with yourself?
*What's something that a lot of people do that you disagree with?

I've never really taken the time to bother being impressed with myself. Usually I'm too busy second guessing myself or putting myself down to notice anything I could possibly be impressed with. Remember the saying about being your own worst critic? Definitely applies to me!

In all honesty, I'm impressed with myself when it comes to blogging. It was my aunt who got me started at it. She was looking for a way to make some money and it sounded like a great idea. I had no clue what I was doing but the idea of being paid to write from home was irresistible.

It didn't take very long until I stopped thinking about the extra money that could be made and simply lost myself in the joys of writing and in connecting with others through their writing.

Every step of the way has been a learning process for me. I've learned about myself, I've learned about other people's lives, and I've learned how to do techy things on the computer with my blog. Most of the things I've managed to do to my blog page has been by trial and error and sometimes just plain accident. The tabs at the top, the "about me" and stuff like that, complete accident! I had been trying to learn how to do that for weeks and literally just stumbled across it! But I was SO tickled with myself. Though I do have to do a shout out to Cinnamon here. She did my button for me. I thought I had it figured out but it just wasn't quite right. So she fixed it for me and made it totally awesome. And she's been a great bloggy friend ever since. Always full of support and advice.

So as silly as it may sound, blogging is what I've been impressed with myself about.
