Bound and determined in 2016……

I started blogging back in 2008 (pre Little Girl) to chronicle my family’s adventures since my scrapbooks were becoming wonderful glass coasters and dust bunny catchers.  I never succeeded with scrapbooking although I sure did try.  I bought books and paper and stickers and doodads and you name it.  The problem really centered around the fact that  I rarely ever “developed” the photos I would take.  Remember those days…taking pictures without knowing how they looked, taking the roll in and then waiting (most likely impatiently) for them to be ready 4 days later.  Of course, then 24 hour photo developing hit the streets and wow we would pay the premium for that speed!  You’d pick your pictures up and most likely you splurged on doubles since you were hopeful you would at least get one good shot of something….weren’t  those the days…but I digress.  So back to scrapbboking and pictures.  Without pictures what good was a scrapbook?  So you can see why that phenomenon didn’t last long with me.  But blogs. Online.Through my laptop. Pictures are downloaded directly from the source to the blog. POW.  I was in business. (not literally, I have never made a cent from anything  I have written)  I knew I could write a blog.  

So it all began back in 2008.  I was doing okay for a while, then fell off the blogging earth. Started again and did some supposedly new fangled things to my blog and ended up losing a year or 2 or 3 of good anecdotes and stories.  So as much as I wanted to chronicle life through my blog, if you looked at my submissions, it would give off the impression I flew to Mars with no internet for years considering all the pockets of nothingness.  So here I am…2016 and I am determined to write. Not only on this blog but I have always dreamed of writing a book. A children’s book. I have had the storyline in my head for at least 10 years…its time to get something written.

Come on in 2011 and stay a while!

What 2011 is going to mean to me!  by Leah Warson

A little more organization when it comes to the computer.  Clean out the bookmarks, lose some programs on the desktop, create easier ways to find my most valuable websites, you know the thing!

Maybe, obtain wireless here in the house?  I came from a home where everything was wireless, I sat at the dining room table, laptop unattached to anything; my documents printed in the basement…now I barely have what is called satellite internet and am stationary at the desk cubbie in the kitchen (printer right next to my right elbow!).

Next, I am not complaining about the above AT ALL.  I live in a wonderful home on a wonderful piece of property in a cute town with friendly people, close to family and the beach. I am truly appreciative but would still love to be able to move the laptop around!

I need to officially cut ties with Whiffy Bean Bags, my labor of love since 2006.  This one is hard for me but I have made many steps to the ultimate closure, just a few more and I am there.  The fact that the 100% closure is so hard is what makes me not do it, so I am pondering all those thoughts.

 My most important adventure of 2011 and really what this blog is going to ultimately be about is  Fubble Bath!  This would be the name of the soap business that my 7 year old daughter and I are starting!  Like me, she is an entrepreneur at heart, is a fantastic sales person and frankly a perfect marketing campaign in herself! She is enthusiastic, loves to talk with people, friendly….and I make the soap!  Well, she does help, picks scents, chooses molds, maybe stirs a little but her her main focus is the sales and marketing and quality control. So this is our focus this year, getting it up and running after of course making and trying out many more soaps!

My last real goal for the year is to make this blog look good, sound good, and be something people might like to follow!  Again, baby steps here….

I have my work cut out for me this year, as this is all on top of being  a great Mommy to 3 little kiddos and a fun wife to my awesome husband!  I better get started on some of this stuff…
