How’s your summer been?

This is the fourth anniversary of my blog. Here’s where I share my discoveries on my journey of creative discoveries as an artist and self-improvement geek. I confess, I’m fan of “Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday” and Flora Bowley’s Bloom True e-Course on Intuitive Painting. I’m working on becoming the best I can be by honoring my intuition and these two ladies are among my many teachers.

Four years ago I went to a workshop on how to blog given by Sharyn Abbott. Many of her tips were ahead of the curve. Back then she was already endorsing the use of Fiverr.com and 99 Designs as resources for the self-employed. She showed how to use Hootsuite coordinate your social media. She advocated using WordPress and demonstrated some basics.

And that’s how I got started. I wrote my first post in Abbott’s class in August of 2010.
