A Valentine's Guest Blogging Post: It's personal by Robin Norgren


Blogging Revelations: It's personal by Robin Norgren

Blogging began as a place for me to journal my life while my hubby was stationed in Kuwait back in 2008.  I wanted a way for him to peek into what I was thinking and help to foster some connection between us to ease the loneliness.  What began as simply a means to stay connected turned into a space that I began to grow and challenge my identity. 

This time frame in 2008 has turned out to be an incredibly significant season.  As I began to journal online, I started to reconnect with my love for writing.  Working full time, raising kids and managing a home had squeezed the creative life out of me.  With this new twists of events, where I was suddenly a stay at home mom of a toddler, financially strapped and alone for long periods of time, I was FORCED to look at things about myself that I let fall by the wayside.


So in 2009, when I opened an etsy shop, moving into another extension of my creative meanderings, I naturally gravitated to the idea of blogging about my experiences as a full time mama and creative entrepreneur.  And again I find that because I am tracking the highs and lows of that experience, I am more in tune with when I need to make adjustments as well when to stop and celebrate successes.


Blogging feels to me like a natural extension of how I do life.  I want to make sure I am present in the things I am attempting to do in life.  Blogging allows me to be held accountable to that desire.

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
