What blogging has taught me about myself is that I don't have to follow the rules.  There are so many areas in our lives where we have to follow the rules.  Having a blog allows you to explore creativity in so many ways.  You can post pictures of yourself.  You can write or draw or photograph.  I especially get a kick out of combining blog challenges. 

August is going to be a relatively quiet month for me.  While I am preparing images for upcoming events (months in advance), I am keeping an eye out for writing or photography challenges.  Give me a holler if you know of something fun and unique coming down the blogger pipeline!
