A bright idea


That's how these things begin isn't it? A bright idea. I'm sure this could become one of those famous moments. You know the ones. The moments where you could have followed the idea that preceded or followed on from 'the' idea. The moment when loved ones look at you, pause, look down to the right, up to the left, pause. The moment when you could have (should have?) selected one of those 'other' ideas. Or, perfectly acceptable also, would be to shrug it off, pick up your knitting (or beer, why not both together) and tune in to Home and Away.

Well, it's done! I have started a blog, not just any old blog - a blog with a mission: a challenge to make my craft business a hit within the next 12 months. I need to be accountable to others - I need the fear of public humiliation to spur me on! Is that a bad thing? Tough. 'That's how I roll'...

It's a little scary, writing the very first post in this mad series. When I hit 'publish post' the countdown starts! It starts! What if my friends and family are being kind, telling me my creations are lovely, and I end up like the fill-in auditions on American Idol? The people who have been told they have nice voices and end up on International TV, sounding awful, really awful...


Stuff it - here I go. 

Day One: Friday 14th May, 2010. 
Tip One: Create and maintain a blog.
