“You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old” George Burns
When last I left you I was firing up my kiln for a bisque firing. Well all came out great.
I was very happy that every piece fired without any problems. Now the pieces have been glazed I loaded up the kiln again for a glaze firing! Woo hoo! And now we wait… again.
While I’m waiting for my kiln to do its job and magically turn my glazed pottery into amazing pieces of functional pottery I decided to take the WordPress University Course 101 on how to have a successful blog. Because I would like to have a blog that you all want to read. A blog that no one reads is just sad.
Assignment 1. Write and introductory post. Who am I and what is my blog about. When I first thought about writing a blog I thought It would just be fun to share my journey in the pottery studio.
Not a journey of a young woman just getting started on a new career or a new mother finding her way through life with kids. I did that already. I am not a spring chicken. I’m an aging hen. 61 years old! I’ve spent the last 35 years raising 3 amazing daughters, working side by side with my husband in our Italian deli. Then 10 years working in an arts and crafts store.
When I reluctantly retired (due to a really cranky pair of knees) I thought “what now?” That’s when I realized it’s never too late to start something new. It’s my time now. Now I have the time to do what I love to do. CREATE! I love making pottery, I love making jewelry, I love to cook (cooking is a craft). That is why my tagline is “Create something everyday” It makes me happy and I would love to share it all with you.
I want women my age to read my blog and say to themselves “It really is never too late to do what makes you happy and reinvent yourself.”
So here we go. Any advice you have please share. I would love to hear from you. You may save me from hitting a few walls or tripping over myself.
Have a wonderful day!
