SPAM! BLAM! Thank You, Ma’am.

The blogging world is if nothing else, vulnerable.  I will admit, that I jumped in without much knowledge of what I was getting in to.  I set a goal and decided to blog about it. Since the goal included a monthly challenge and the end of January was approaching, I made the decision to jump in and figure it out later. I still stand by that decision. You know that phrase: “had I known then what I know now?” …. I still would have started this blog, but it would probably be forever lingering in the conceptual stage.  I’d be all caught up in design and content.  The fear of “competing” with other bloggers would kick in and I’d be spending all my time reading other’s blogs and not doing what I love; which is sewing. Sometimes you just have to jump.

When you jump, you learn things you didn’t even know you didn’t know. The lesson I’ve learned this week centers around SPAM aka as BLAM in the blogging world. I opened my blog up to comments and then I discovered that spam comes to blogger’s in-boxes just like any other in box. I wasn’t prepared for that or the shock when I found my “spam” folder.  What!?! There’s a spam folder? That means I have to keep an eye on it.  I guess I didn’t spend much time thinking that this is a two-way street.  I blog: Readers comment.

This is my first apology. I hope there won’t be too many more, but I’m not foolish enough to think this road will not have any more bumps. I’m sorry your comments lived in my spam folder for so long. I will work on keeping up on this little chore. For those of you that are commenting in an effort to attract me as a client for your online website services; I’m pretty happy with what I got right now.

There is always room for improvement and as I learn. I’ll make the changes I feel work for me. We are all always a work in progress.

Thanks for being here,
