Hi there! I am Tai and I am the new owner of a BLOG! A creative blog. taidye original. Taidye has been a nickname of mine as long as I can remember and it suits my crazy self well. I am so glad you are here. Welcome to my first post!
A little over a year ago I accidentally stumbled onto (insert theme music) A CRAFT BLOG! I didn’t know anything about blogs. I did know I was an untreated “craftaholic” – but I wasn’t looking for treatment. I was looking for an enabling outlet. The blog I happened on that wonderful day was Happy Together. I cant remember the exact reason I found it or what I was searching for but I do remember reading the entire blog all at once! I was in love with Jessica's spirit, her profile, her pretty pictures and her beautiful family. And immediately when I was finished I knew I needed more. I needed another fix. I needed another blog to read.
I checked the Happy Together blog several times a day waiting for updates. I had no idea what it meant to “follow” a blog and I had no idea where to find more blogs like hers. Thankfully, while exploring there one day I found that she had a page of buttons under a heading that said “Featured on” I began clicking them. OH HAPPY DAY!! I had found my forever fix! I saved many popular links to my favorites –U Create, Little Birdie Secrets, Lil Blue Boo, Luv In the Mommyhood, I am Momma – Hear me Roar, and many many more. Too many to list - and started “following” (in my own way…some people call this “lurking”…I didn’t know better!) and I found that there was a huge community of blogging ladies with many wonderful and creative ideas to share. I have been inspired by so many of you! I, too, cried when Disney from Ruffles-n-Stuff stopped posting. I have laughed and cried while reading Joy’s Hope. And I have spent countless hours on Crafter-hours, MADE, MaryJanes and Galoshes, Twelve Crafts til Christmas, and At Second Street.
Then one day I decided “hey, just like Jessica at Happy Together I, too, have a loving spirit, pretty pictures and a beautiful family…”
So here I am. I have no idea what I am doing. In fact, I JUST figured out in the last week how to appropriately follow a blog. I still havent learned to use google reader. But I promise I will be commenting from now on. It is the least I can do! I am sure there are going to be some bumps along the way but I hope to be welcomed into the craft blog community – I am SO excited to be here!!
