Hello…It’s Me…Again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASheepishly I find myself at my keyboard, wondering just how on earth to catch up on a blog that hasn’t been touched in nearly nine months.  I’ve started and typed and deleted and started all over again, trying to find the right words to crank up my once beloved page, now gone rusty from lack of love.

I was about to give up once again when I took the time to reread some of my past entries, especially some of the earlier ones, when I used to write straight from my heart, knowing that I was primarily writing to an audience of a few just two , with Mum and Dad being my only readers. It was really great looking back, having a chuckle and a smile at the photos, remembering forgotten stories, groaning at some poor editing and basic grammar mistakes and wondering how on earth to bring back the chatty, personable nature of these early ramblings.  Knowing that between Facebook, Instagram and this blog, I now have an audience of a few thousand makes it just a little bit more daunting.

I am firstly, a painter.  It’s what I do day in and day out and it’s immensely satisfying…but I do love to write and really want to combine these two passions ongoing.

But. I’m. Scared.

You guys are freaking me out!

I just want to write about stuff…any stuff that comes into my overly meandering brain; my pondering’s of life from the end of a paintbrush, the good, the boring and the ridiculous,  but I’m fully aware of the judgement and fury that can descend on me from the Grammar Police when I get a comma out-of-place or use too many of these  ……..  and the irritation that I may cause to those following purely for art tips and only want to know whether to use a filbert or a rigger and what medium I use.

So, this is my disclaimer.  Read it and action appropriately :

If you are accepting of art  ramblings, my personal opinions, indulgence in blowing my own art trumpet, the occasional WooHoooo when there is exciting news, open displays of affection towards puppies (coming soon), an over sharing of my own photos, the occasional slump into doubt and insecurity,  general chitter chatter and huge levels of camaraderie and support toward other artists, creatives and even normal people, follow me.

Otherwise don’t.  SIMPLE.

Hope you stick around and say Hi every now and then!

  1. Im staying!!!! xxx

    1. Yeah!!! It wouldn’t be the same without you! X

  2. My dear and beautiful daughter! I do love the way you always choose the right and importantly, correct way to start off your beautiful blogs. (if that is the right word!) Looking forward to everything you are going to do for the remainder of this year and into the next. You are an inspiration to every one who comes into contact with you. I love you, DadXXX

    1. Aw Dad! Wonderful words to read from my greatest fan. If all else fails, at least I know you will still be reading!! Xxxx

  3. I’m neither your mother or your father so that’s three of us!!! And my blog has been silent for longer than yours. So. And puppies far outweigh grammar errors 😉
    Write away!
    S x

    1. Haha! Thank you…good to know there are others out there reading here and with blog problems like mine! Puppy spam imminent…

  4. I totally feel you there. I started to write blogs of my art because I have no one to talk to, on arts, that’s it. But then, as I progress, I became conscious of what and how I write.
    But then, I realised that I should not change anything, people who are willing to take time to read and follow my blog because they accept me as who I am.

    Keep on rambling because it’s very interesting to know that you are as normal as the most of us too.


    1. Thank you Sharon. I’ve just taken a rather long look around your blog and followed you on Instagram…you are amazing!!!!!!! I love pencil work and would love to do more of it some day, my goodness, your work is outstanding.

  5. Great to see you again, Mia! I understand how hard it is to keep up the writing on top of the art, and everything else you do! I look forward to the next instalment. x
    PS. If you feel inclined, I’d love you to write something for the attic one day, particularly as you are wonderful at expressing yourself and writing is so meaningful to you. xx

    1. Oh Louise, you gorgeous girl! I’d love to do that for you Louise, but just let me prove to myself I can get back to this. You will be my golden ticket…comment again when you think I’m ready.

  6. I think inevitably, us being on WordPress for as long as we have, this happens. But I’ve come to accept it as just being blogging veterans. 😉 As long as you get enjoyment out of writing, doesn’t really matter how often you post. Still, I’m always glad when I see longtime blogging friends come out of the woods to make an appearance. 🙂
