Do you remember how it was when you first learned to ride a bike? You could imagine yourself perfectly balanced on two wheels, brimming with confidence. You swing your leg over the bike... that hard, skinny seat between your legs... you suddenly feel awkward and uncomfortable... that confidence begins to wane. One foot on the peddle - PUSH! Your other foot lands on the ground before your tire makes even one revolution. You repeat the process, inching your way down the street, when finally you keep both feet on the peddles, your handle bars jerking left and right. You gain momentum. One, two, three revolutions... you're doing it! You're riding! The wind blows through your hair, the freedom, the exhilaration!
Such is my experience with blogging. I am not only a newbie, but up until a few weeks ago, I didn't even know what a blog was. But such is life. Full of discoveries, opportunities, and challenges. Today I am on my bike (or blog) for the first time. I can imagine myself writing freely, uploading pictures effortlessly, creating beautiful designs, and maneuvering around blogland with comfort,ease, and confidence! But in reality I'm still on training wheels. I'm clumsy and awkward and can't find my way around. It's trial and error. But I'm on my bike, two feet still on the ground, and ready for the challenge. So bear with me , please. I have a lot to learn, but I'm so excited to be a part of the blogging world. I have so much to share, and it promises to be a great adventure. Come along with me for the ride!
