One of the other big "risks" that I began this year was blogging. In March I wrote my first official blog Mom's aren't supposed to in response to an acquaintance's suicide. I realized how cathartic writing is to me. In the past I have done The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron and loved it. In August I met a new and wonderful Soul sister +Hallelujah Truth Ruth through Interplay. When I read her blog and shared that I had written "one" too she sent be back a wonderful list of blogging questions that peaked my interest and in response I started blogging daily. Since then I participated in Kat MacNally's Blogtoberfest (thanks Ruth for the introduction) took a break in November and am back at it for #Reverb13.

Blogging is a risk for me because of sharing parts of myself that I usually keep hidden. I love writing and it is part of my creative practice so a lot of times I feel vulnerable when I put 'it' out there. In regards to the rewards they have been wonderful. I have 'met' amazing people across the globe and continue to be inspired and awed daily. I feel like blogging has deepened my relationship with several folks including my husband, Joe, of almost 20 years who loves to read my blog and go, "Wow, I didn't know that!"
