The Inaugural Blog

Uncategorized 6 Comments

Writing a blog/website is not unlike having a baby.  You start out with the fun part, conceiving the idea.

An idea being conceived?

Then it’s down to work, creating the bones of the blog, fleshing it out with words and photos, until finally it’s ready to be born.  And the process is not without its tears and gnashing of teeth!

Birthing is hard work!

After the birth, the pains of labor are forgotten as your idea comes alive!

Labor pains forgotten!

In fact, writing a blog/website is a lot like designing and decorating a room.  The very first thing you need to do to make a plan.  To paraphrase a quote I read recently, failing to plan results in a plan for failure.  That being said, the blog is not perfect but who said it has to be perfect?   I will learn as I go along.  Babies, of course, are perfect, but then, that’s God for ya!

You can subscribe to my blogposts by clicking this button which is the RSS feed at the bottom right of every page.  This will automatically send my blogposts to your mail box or wherever you want them to go.   I spell this out because when I first got into reading blogs, I had no idea how to subscribe!  Clicking this button will allow you to choose whether you want to receive blogpost updates by mail, through Google Reader, etc.

You can also visit my Facebook page and Twitter feeds by clicking the ‘F’ and ‘T’ buttons respectively.

Ask me your decorating questions!

No, this is not a button to click!  But if you have a decorating question you want to ask me, subscribe to my email newsletter of decorating tips.  Just enter your email address into the gold “Sign up for my Email Newsletter” box sprinkled through the website. Every month I’ll answer a decorating question.  If you want to ask a question but don’t want your name in the newsletter, just let me know and your name shall be withheld.  Email your question(s) to [email protected] and if you remember, put “decorating tip question” in the subject line.

Now remember I warned you my blog isn’t perfect?  Well, my special report “The Top 3 Decorating Mistakes and How to Correct Them,” which you will receive when subscribing to my email newsletter is not quite ready.  Seems I need to figure out a few technical kinks.  But even if you subscribe now, I will send you the report once I get it up and running.

Welcome to my newborn blog/website, I hope that you will come back often to visit!

    Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in internet explorer, would test this IE still is the market leader and a good portion of people will miss your great writing due to this problem. dckecdeebede

    I treasure you for maintaining such a valuable website. your blog wasn’t just educational but in addition rather original too. We run into a little number of experts which can handle publishing not so simple posts that creatively. I am looking out for content about this issue. We ourselves explored quite a few sites to discover awareness with respect to this.I will continue returning !!

    Great read..First time to your blog. Thanks for sharing. I have to subscribe to this site. I am a room decorator for years. My decor tip of the century is: Don’t clutter a home. A good walking area is a must. Thanks one more time..

    Greetings. I just realized that this particular webpage doesn’t show accurately in my browser. Oh well, It looks like I will simply make use of the tried and tested IE.

    Hi there, I found this blog once, then lost it. Took me forever to come back and find it. I wanted to view what comments you got. Great blog by the way.
