Image Note: Some time last year, I talked about "What does your blog say about you?" after using Wordle and giving my blogging practice some thought. This year, for the Studio's 9th Anniversary, I decided to use it again to re-evaluate my blogging practice. And, while my latest "word cloud" doesn't capture everything that I wish to capture, I thought this time, the results are heaps better. I'm glad to see words like inspiration, write/writing/writers, stories/story, true, wish, remember, creative, book, reading, give, people, fearless, love, and beginnings in my latest "word cloud". Last year, I was horrified to find that words like hate, structure, issues, leave, commenter, etc. made their way in to my "word cloud". I guess, that revealed where my headspace (and heartspace?!) was the same time a year ago. So, hopefully, this shows that I am definitely doing much better this year in blogging - and in life. How amazing is that? 🙂
Thank you so much again for your support - and everything else!
