Late bloomer

Believe it or not, before I started “StyleIsMyPudding” last September, I had absolutely no Internet presence…and very little online experience either.

My husband and I didn’t have a computer until he started working from home about three years ago; and my own job didn’t computerize much before that.  I’ve only had my iPhone since March; before that, I managed just fine with my little flip-phone.

This meant that until very recently, things like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram were totally foreign concepts to me.  I realized very quickly that social media is a huge part of building a blog following, but it’s definitely not second nature to me to “share” my life in a moment-by-moment fashion…I’m always forgetting that I actually have a camera built into that fancy new cell phone of mine!!

But as my blogger friend Veronika (“By the Shore”) reminded readers in her recent Blog Workshop post, staying true to who we are – without pressuring ourselves – is probably one of the most important things we can do as we work towards building our own little virtual communities.

So even though you may not get many glimpses “behind the scenes” from me, dear readers, as a dedicated shopper and personal style-ista, you can definitely expect the outfit posts to keep on coming!!  And I’m thrilled to share them with you!!

      You deserve every single "shout-out" that you get, dear Veronika…I'm continuously amazed by all the projects you manage to keep on the go!! And this plush coat of mine is truly the definition of cozy; in fact, I purposely wore it with a sleeveless summer dress so that I could fully enjoy the snuggle factor!! 😉
