I'm sitting down at my computer with a great cup of freshly percolated coffee and with the intention of doing some blog maintenance and other bits and pieces; instead, I end up doing a reminiscing tour of the EP Designs archives. This was not on my list of things to do but once I got started I simply had to continue.
I'm amazed at how much blogging I did between Dec 2007 and Nov 2010. Back then I had three blogs on the go - although the EP Treasures blog, which is on Blogger, was my first try at blogging. I then discovered WordPress, loved it, so set up the EP Designs blog using WordPress.
There definitely wasn't a shortage of blog post ideas and I had lots of fun meeting other bloggers along the way. There were the creative people, business people and personal bloggers; Aussie bloggers and international; there were weekly or monthly memes, pay-it-forwards, tips, quotes, jokes and laughs, shopping and sales, giveaways, mentions in magazines and other blogs, and sharing of new and exciting blogs or treasures discovered.
It was a real blast from the past .... and a rather inspiring tour. I didn't get any blog maintenance done but I've managed to write this post. And guess what I found? Although I remember writing most of those posts this one I completely forgot about - The Creative Treasury - Oh my Gosh! I was actually thinking of a name change for EP Designs blog instead of starting up a new website. That was August 2009 (as I'm writing now, that's six years ago - that's how long I've been missing in action). What I was doing back then in blogging is pretty much what I'd like to be doing now, however, without the stress of plugging business to make sales; but adding more stories behind the creative people and more creative fun things and sharing personal treasures and adding some good, fun chit-chats along the way.... with a good, strong cup of coffee and chocolate next to me, or a glass of bubbly or wine.
Alas, the EP Designs blog is still live - (I'm not blogging there - it's kind of hard to pull the plug on it... when the time is right it will go). All posts have been imported to this site and listed under the EP Designs Archives category.
Since setting up the Creative Treasury website I've thought and re-thought what I would be doing with it as it's mainly a personal blog; And it keeps changing. I think I'll continue as I am for now and follow the path to wherever it leads.
Life is full of good things that need to be shared.
