Reached my 300th Post and Other Strange Tales!


Naughty Naughty Naughty Jodi for letting one complete Month go by without posting a single word here on what is truly my favorite place to jot down thoughts!!! Those of you who read me on Facebook will probably say "well Jodi, you seem to do a fair amount of Chatting over on Facebook don't you, THAT appears to be your favorite place to hang out...explain yourself!!!!!"
Well true be told ...and I am pretty sure I may have mentioned this already once of twice here...My Blog is my 'Freedom Spot'... it's ALLLL Mine and I can say and do as I please ...from designing the layout to jotting down thoughts... this space is my sanctuary and truly is my favorite place to just chill and enjoy Your Company!! Facebook (in analyzing it) is a 'drug' that you get and give in small doses to and with so many...they seem easier to find and to find you! But though many spill their inner most thoughts there ...it always seems to be in smaller more condensed form...where as a Blog ...you can go on and on and on and on ...BREATH...and on and on and on and on...BREATH...on and on and on...you get the picture!! Here I feel like I am really talking with friends in a very friendly format , like sitting down with a cup of coffee, a few cookies and the latest happenings in all of our lives... I don't get that same feeling over there. Though I will admit it is easy to get 'hooked' on that particular drug called 'Facebooktesy'... between old friends from High School or past life acquaintances, Old boyfriends , New friends, causes, organizations, Liking this and that, all that 'poking' and prodding ... Fanning this and grouping with that ...Facebook is a very hard drug to kick... it's easy, widespread and keeps you unbelievably curious to find out more...
I really have decided that I need to chill more ... and ...Work More!! (believe it or not I can easily chill when wrapped in work) ...and I am actually having a hard time with the 'socializing' aspect of my life and also getting the work done that I want...no...Need to get done!! So I always say, somethings got to give... so keeping fingers crossed and if the Art Gods are Willing... I will 'peel' myself slowly from the clutches of FB and devote more of that time to my beloved Blog and Art that I am craving to create.
So how's that for a 300th Post... I have so much more to yammer about but my new doll is calling ... she has a touch of Halloween to her...which is making the old Halloween Juices Flow Again after a long hot summer of being dormant ... this is the Best Time of the year...the coming of Autumn...
Hugs To All 'Blog On'
Jodi

well finally, the withdrawls have subsided, and you are back with us! I completely erased my facebook page...twice haha It is addicting, and drug like in many ways, but I, like you find it as a distraction. I got "into" face book as a way of keeping a daily tab on my eldest daughter. but we now communicate more and more through emails, phone ect..so Face book is out the door once again. The remainder of my children are right here within 5 miles of me, and I see, and or talk to them daily, so I know what is going on in their lives, and somedays wish I didn't haha But for me, my work suffers when I get caught up in the who said what to whom thing on FB. The blog world is very different for me. I can always find inspiration, a great quote, beautiful creations,a good friend, someone to listen as well as talk to you! so friend, stay your butt over here where you belong!! and get to work! We creagerettes are dying to see some dolls! XOXO Christel

Blog beats FB 1000/0.
Blogland is exactly what you said, a nice, peaceful place where share thoughts, feelings, works to common minded friends. I love Blogland as I much I distrust FB. That's why I do not have a FB account anyway. Now I cannot wait to see the new doll, I already know that I'll love it ! Minihugs, Rosanna
