N … Network of Bloggers
Any of you who blog …
know and appreciate the hours we spend doing our best to make a project, how we take our photos in the best possible light and vantage point, spend time in photo editing and adding our water mark, and then of course writing it down and posting it to our blogs.
Those of you who don’t have a blog …
may not be aware that there are bloggers who have made friendships with each other along the way. They have become so precious to me in the past year and a half and sometimes when I have felt like quitting, they have been uplifting and supportive.
We have connected in so many ways. Using social media and privately.
Sharing each others joy and failures and even the unkind remarks that are left from someone who comments on a blog. These things are what bind the network of bloggers together. These are the ones who share in our day to day behind the lines that you don’t see when you read and look at the pictures we post. There have been times when I ask myself if it is worth it and then comes along a comment that makes it all worthwhile …
Today, I received one of those precious comments.
Thank you SO much for this. We just bought the same piano and bench (except in browns) and that 1980′s Naugahyde had to go! I’ve never upholstered anything before, but my husband just happened to have a rarely-used compressor that I’d been bugging him to re-home for months (thank goodness for procrastination!) with staple gun. I stumbled upon the same fabric as my couches in a remnant pile at Hancock and it was meant to be this weekend. The hardest part was just removing the screws and then finding those holes again. Entire project was scarcely an hour and made a huge improvement. Now I’ve got the bug and have been eyeing other furniture. LOL. I hope you got what you wanted for the piano. Thanks so much for giving me the courage. – Melanie
If I could suggest one thing to any of you reading this today … it would be … Be kind in comments. I have been fortunate and have had such sweet and supportive people around me. Remember, your taste might not be the same as someone who worked so hard to bring you their idea. Hours,Days, (and in my case a couple times) Months have been spent working to have it appear on a blog.
A BIG thank you for my network of Bloggers … I couldn’t do this without you!
