Nerves...what to say

Gosh, why do I have so much anxiety about blogging? I think some of my angst is because I read so many great blogs and I am in awe of how some people can make the most common conversation interesting. Then there are those whose words offer great inspiration and you're just all sobby at the end of the read. Still others are just wonderful givers. They offer great links to great places on the web and you just feel like your learned your "one new thing" for the day after reading their entry. So refreshing when that happens! Then there is me, just me with my little dog Isabel. We don't have a glamorous life, we don't have some great inspirational story to offer, we just live in this little town in the mountains of western Maryland, but yet I had this feeling of needing to connect with others who love their dogs (or cats or whatever animal suits them) to a point that I create a blog for my beloved pet. So yeah, back to my point. I'm nervous about my new blog. And I'll even admit that I have visited my blog every day for the last three days without writing one new entry. Perhaps facing my fear by stating it to whoever stumbles here will help me move further from my anxiety closer to just writing about what is on my (or Isabel's) mind at the time and not worry that I might say something dumb out loud for everyone to read. Thanks for listening, I feel much better already!

On a mission...

So I'm on a mission to find new friends and followers for my blog. (shoutout to to my first 3 followers: Rachel Reed, Barefoot Nana, Petey) I am most inspired by my new friend Petey (:wags to petey) of Petey's Playhouse who just recently blogged his 200th post!! I think that is just amazing. Kudos to you Petey!! I figure that now that I have my new blog all set up, I can spend more time looking for friends. This should be fun!

P.S. If you happen to be here by accident, why not follow me and I'll return the favor, that would be great!

Custom Blogger Header

This is my first post on the new doggy blog and I'm so excited because with this blog, (drum roll please!) comes my new custom header done by Cynthia at (it will be arrving shortly) I actually came across Cyn on Twitter. Just in a very round about way. Course I started an isabeltheyorkie twitter page (and myspace, and facebook, and website). It's just a way for me to network with other dog lovers and I admit it makes me feel like I'm apart of all the media hype and obsession with twitter right now. (you know, kinda edgy in a nerd-like way)

But anyways, I came across Cyn in an inadvertinant way on Twitter (her twitte a.k.a. is NapWarden-I forgot to ask her who this person/superhero is-you'll see it on her site). If I remember correctly, I think the way I found her was through following Somehow from her, I ran into Austin Girls twitter page. I'm not certain if Tricia was following/being followed by her or what. But Austin Girls custom page caught my eye right away and it was from there that I made my way to connect with Cyn! (sometimes a girl has to know how to dig on the web in order to find her way) One thing weird though, now that I'm backtracking all of this, I come to realize that Austin Girl's profile is no longer on twitter. hmm.

So Cynthia and I collaborated the idea for my custom header and I just love it! Let me know what you think as well
