Time for the "GROW YOUR BLOG" Party!!!

This is my first year joining the "Grow Your Blog" party hosted by 2 Bags Full, and I can't wait to discover some new favorite blogs!
The Invitation!
If you are here for the party and this is your first time visiting, I'll tell you a little bit about my blog.  I think I've been with Blogger since 2005 (!)  There have been quite a few different iterations of this blog.  It was kind of a diary at first, then it was about my job, then it was a travel blog, and finally I settled on the Meowtalk name that it has now (and which I like a lot).  I figured I could talk about anything under that name...and I have.

I work out of my home studio making beaded jewelry, so I post pictures of the pieces I finish and sometimes in-progress pics or different variations/experiments with a piece.  I also post little stories about my daily life, my 4 grand-kids, my cats, or anything else I think might make a good blog post. I do not post about politics - that subject has a way of becoming immediately divisive in any group.

I don't always post consistently, but I keep promising myself that I'm going to get better about that. We'll see as 2015 evolves.  I am really hoping to post at least once a week.

I'll keep it short because I know you have a lot of blogs to visit.  And so do I!

It can be so hard to get on a schedule for blogging! I try to avoid doing any of those "one Wednesdays I do this..." type posts for that reason.
Creative people like us tend to jump around a lot so I feel it's not right for us to "schedule" our creativity.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello, nice to "meet" you. I'm visiting on behalf of Vicki to welcome you to the party. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did last year when I participated for the first time. I'm impressed that you've been blogging for so long - well done!

Happy to have made my way here via the GYB party. Look forward to seeing more of your beaded jewelry - a total weakness of mine. :-) said...

You throw a great party. Thank you for inviting me!

So that you know, I've become a Follower and when time permits, I'll be back to see what other beautiful things were made by your hands!

What this party is all about is to GROW your blog and I'm hoping to do the same. When you get to Section One, check out A Country Chic Retreat and SuZeQ Creations, my personal blog, in Section Fifteen I'd love for you to follow and subscribe to.

Happy crafting!

Hello! I was tempted in by the name, and stayed for the jewellery! What lovely things you create.

I'm now a follower of your lovely blog. As a fellow jewelry maker/beader, I look forward to visiting often.

Hi Cat, nice to meet you! I'm visiting from the grow your blog event. I'm so impressed you've been on for 5 years! My one year blogiversary just past this Monday, and it's tough to come up with new things to write about! I used to update more, but lately I've had to slow down some, so I totally get how difficult it is to post consistently!

So nice to meet you! I just had a lovely time scrolling down and seeing all your beautiful jewelry creations.
