I remember one of my painting instructors in college asked if I 'blogged.' At the time, I didn't. The word seemed foreign, the concept was strange. I couldn't buy into it and I couldn't see how my teacher (of my parents generation) would be into this online community! I guess that is what I failed to understand from the get go: Community. My understanding was that it was a journal of sorts, a place for you to record your thoughts and experiences, not unlike a diary. I have since learned that the blog is much more about community.

I am able to record those thoughts and experiences, but they are along a much more specific topic than I first imagined. I am also able to partake in the postings of so many others who share similar interests with me. I am learning that there is discussion in the comments, there are familiar names and faces, and there are friends who challenge you and help you grow. Each picture in this post is something that would not have been created if it had not been for blogs!

In the spirit of learning, growing and community, I excited to join the Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts. I know that here I will find more inspiration, stories, challenges and conversation.
