WHAT AM I DOING????

What am I doing??? am I on Drugs or what?? up until a year ago I never even heard of a Blog and now I am trying to do one ??
When I first heard the word Blog it sounded like a Horror movie to me !!! you know " THE THING" ?? This is my first post and maybe my last... Good lord maybe I need to do drugs or I am just getting bored in my old age or maybe all my cyber friends have moved on to blogs and I am trying to act like I know what I am doing haha!!! which I don't but hey I am willing to give it the all American try....and besides RMS is so slow I can't leave a comment to anyone half the time....So here goes nothing...Fasten your seat belts this will be a bumpy ride with me doing this... I hope to be able to talk about antiques ( my passion ) my home and just stuff...

Welcome, Welcome! I am sure you will do just fine! RMS is so slow that it's not much fun anymore. I tried searching for my own posts the other day and they were nowhere to be found - go figure! Well, count me in as one of your followers ~ Robyn

Hello Gloria and welcome to the land of blog. I participated, somewhat at RMS, as tkm mom.

Two years ago, my friend Kim, at Daisy Cottage encouraged me to start a blog. In March 2009, I will celebrate my second anniversary. I love blogland. I hope you continue to blog. You will learn to carry your camera simply everywhere you go! I've developed a late in life hobby, of photography, since I began blogging. It's amazing the subjects you will think of to write about.

Looking forward to more from Happy to Be.

sad to see you can't get away from those you wanted to! lol....Blog land is a friendlier place...and it is very easy to figure out who is real and who is not when they too have a blog and share themself!
Looks wonderful so far....let me know if you need some help or advice or whatever!

Sue said...

Gloria, sweetie, you didn't tell me!!! I had to hear the good news at Dots, OK I forgive you!! LOL! Girl I can't wait for the fun to begin!! I'll never get off this computer, way too many blogs to read! Good luck and you show 'em girlfriend!! xoxoxoxo

Carrie said...

Tomarie said...

Oh Gloria...I'm so happy to see you've started a blog! You made me laugh when you said you didn't even know what a blog was until a year ago! I was the same way as I'm sure many others. You must admit RMS started many things! Great friendships, blogs, and so much more! :-)
I really look forward to your blog~~you're going to do great!! I can't wait to learn about antiques and whatever else you have to share!
You're funny, loving, and smart~~all the qualities that a good blogger needs! :-)
Love ya friend!!

I found your new blog surfing other blogs. I just started gong to RMS a few weeks ago and thought it was wonderful if not slow at times. I have only seen one particular negative comment at RMS but have left nice comments a few times. But I have never posted any pictures. Then while reading comments on RMS I discovered cottage and decorating "blogs". And I love them. I want to start one too (my hubby thinks I am crazy) but I'm not as talented as many of the bloggers. But I love my home and the little touches I have done. Was it hard to set yours up? Any tips or hints on the process? By the way your photo "Welcome Aboard" was cute!

Tootsie said...

I hope our chat on the phone helped! love you mom! call me anytime you need a hand!

Girlfriend, I about fell off of my seat when I seen that you had started a blog! But I love it!!! I'm so happy that you've decided to jump into "Blog Land"...and I'm already looking forward to reading your posts! I'm so hoping that you will share some of those treasured antiques you have...and teach us a little about them! Your so great at that!!! I love your Blog background...and I love this photo of your fabulous Sunroom!!!

Of course, you know that I wish you the very best...in fact, I have your very first award waiting for you over at my place! It's the "Kreativ Bloggers" Award! If you'd stop by to pick it up, it would be such an honor for me!!! I hope that you're having a wonderful and restful Sunday!

Love ya Sweetie,
Chari (Happytodesign)

No wonder I haven't heard from you lately. You've been a busy and productive lady. Look so forward to all your future posts.
At least the water is warm here in blog land, not cold, as it sometimes is on RMS. I think you'll really enjoy this, so much more than the aggravation that RMS has become.

twizzis said...

Oh Gloria, you're in the blogging club now. I hope you don't forget your old friends on the 'outside'. I just know you'll find much joy and fulfillment in blogging. Just as you decorate your home, blog with that same passion and the inspiration will follow.

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Hi Gloria...I could have sworn I left a comment...man...I'm scaring myself...where's my brain??? You know I am beyond excited that you have a BLOG! I can't wait to see more of your gorgeous home and antiques...and no more slow crazy RMS to deal with! Yahoo! And girl...I know you just received an award...so well deserved for taking that step in blogland! :-)
Love ya,
Susan

It looks like you are off to a good start.

I have added you to my follow list, and I will be back.

Have a great week. You will like it here.
