i'm going into my 6th year of blogging

I started blogging 5 years ago today.  I originally picked a blog title of Midlife Bliss and I really don't remember why I changed it to daily yarns 'n more.

A lot has changed since the beginning with both my blog and my life.  I started out with Blogger and after a few months of having troubles with it I made the switch to TypePad and I haven't looked back or regretted that move, I love what TypePad has to offer me.

My blogging hasn't changed that much, only maybe I post more photos and less words.  Bloggers have come and gone since I've started.  Some blogs I used to follow have closed down, some are still there but the owners just don't post anymore or as often as they did.  I've found new blogs and the greatest thing of all is that I've actually met a few of my fellow bloggers/readers of my blog and that is the neatest thing of all.

I updated my about me page and don't think I'll be doing too many changes here on the blog other than my banner which I like to change often.  Now that Picnic is closed, I'm not too sure where I'll be making my banners at.  I did try Smilebox but for some reason since downloading it I couldn't upload photos to TypePad on my lap top, I wasn't sure if there was a connection or it was a coincidence, but after consulting my wonderful computer whiz son, I found out it was indeed Smilebox that caused it :(

I've learned so much about taking photos, tho I still have trouble taking food shots.

I have found so many quilting blogs that have inspired me.


I love living in the country, and living a much more slower paced simpler life.

My camera does go with me everytime I walk out the door, because I never know just what I'll find to photograph next.


Wow, when I first started I never imagined that I would still be blogging 5 years later.

Here's looking forward to another 5 years of blogging.
