I am just one of those people. who always wants to read between the lines. What did they really mean, or what are they trying not to tell you. In this case the answer is easy. I am participating in a new series by Katherine of Katherine’s Corner. She asked bloggers who are in the over 50 age group, of all genre, to join her in this ten week series. This is series 2, go here for the first series, and I will be joined today by six other bloggers. Each one of us will answer a couple questions from Katherine, and on the last day of the series, we get to ask Katherine a few questions.
Katherine asked us each to talk about why we blog, and the obstacles we face being in a certain age range. I think she was politely saying we might be in a computer challenged age bracket. Lol! She was correct in that assumption. The poor thing had to change the set-up at least twice because this is something new for a lot of us. I was just thrilled that I was not going to be featured till way up in May. WRONG!!! Someone asked to be switched, and being so sweet of course, I agreed. As long as I wasn’t in the first group, I was fine. I hate the feeling of inadequacy. I will work my but off, if I know what I am doing, but I can’t stand that phase where you are afraid your going to be the only one who doesn’t understand. Fortunately, Katherine has done these type series before, maybe not with quite this many participants, but she took it all in stride.
This is one of the reasons I love blogging. It is just another way to get me out of my comfort zone. It is also a way to make myself accountable. It is waaay to easy to just throw on the first thing you come to, pull your hair back out of your face, not put on any makeup, and head out the door. Not anymore! Now I make sure I look “presentable” every time I leave the house. Shoot, I even try to look decent when I am staying home. You never know who is going to come to the door. Now that people in town know about the blog, I feel a little extra pressure to look nice. This is a good thing. I don’t mind having my feet held to the fire.
The funny thing is, several younger people have actually talked to me about them starting their own blog. What!!! That is about the highest compliment you will ever get from someone younger than you. Especially when it comes to computers, technology, or fashion. Haha I sure wish I had someone to talk to that already knew the ins and outs. I am sure there are a lot of things I need to be doing, but I have no idea what they are, or where to even look to find them. My goal at this time is to just continue to grow as a blogger, continue to grow my readers, and continue to grow my writing skills. Hopefully by my first anniversary, some of these goals will have been met.My outfit today is black & white. I thought you could use a change, from my normal colorful outfits. I am doing a little pattern mixing today. The top is one I bought from Old Navy years ago. I had at first thought I would wear it with a solid pant, but when I pulled it out today, I changed my mind. Here is a black top with white print, and here is a color block top in the same color scheme.You might have noticed a little change in today’s post. No, not the munchkin, my shoes. I have styled three different pair of shoes. Go ahead and scroll back through the pictures, I’ll wait on you. Dum, dum, dum, dee, dum. Okay, I see your back. I got all three at the QVC outlet stores in town. Yes, that is plural. We have three, since a brand new one just opened last week. Haha The black (similar) and the gray (similar) pair are by Sole Society, and the red (similar) pair is by G.I.L.I. Did you notice how the change in shoe changes the whole look? The pants are a small check pixie pant by Old Navy. Here is a similar pair.Little Miss Emersyn is styling a gray satchel by Aimee Kestenberg. Notice how it goes with everything, even ice cream pajamas and hot pink tennis shoes. Don’t you just love that blonde hair?I hope you have enjoyed today’s post. Be sure to check out all the other lovely ladies who are joining me today. And a special thanks to Katherine for wrangling all the cats together for this series.
