How long have you been blogging?

This is my first year, and I might say that I am trying really hard to keep up with it. Its a lot of fun, but sometimes I get stuck on what to say. I created a diary where I can write and then blog it. It allows me to keep up better.

How did you get started?

I started in the party business back in 1999. When I was planing a tea party for my daughter. then it just took off. I was lucky! For my Dream Sample box, because I have so many vendors that I network with. I was looking to help others network with them too. This allows everyone to get some business for themselves. I realized everyone was blogging and saw how many blogs I belonged to s I took the next step and started to blog about my businesses.
