Thanks to the folks at WordPress for including my post on last Friday’s (May 13th) Freshly Pressed. What an amazing change in my traffic! It was incredible to see the huge jump in the number of clicks on my blog.
So, where do I go from there? Yesterday, I had a case of blog anxiety in advance of my post today. What to post after all the fresh attention brought on by Freshly Pressed? But then, reality settled in. I realized that I would simply continue doing what I have since starting this blog back in January 2010: I’d have fun sharing my personal projects. This blog has helped me branch out to different creative experiments, and I’ve very much enjoyed posting poems, illustrations, photos, and paintings.
I hope that visitors have had a good laugh at the posts — from the Ambidextrous cartoon, as well as my other illustrations and poems. And hopefully, visitors will enjoy the posts yet to come.
Thanks to all those who took time out of their day to stop by my blog.
Today’s post has some photos I took at a Maryland state park. All around the theme of growth — from a sprout growing from a tree stump to a group of fern fiddleheads. I think ferns are neat how they first grow tightly curled, then unfurl as they grow and finish at leaves with interesting patterns.
