My Favorite Layout- June 2009


Welcome To My Blog (a.k.a. My Current Pet Project-HOG BLOG)

Welcome to my blog! Do you have a blog? What did you name yours? This is my first time "pimpin" out a blog and really putting my heart into it. It took me 24 hours just to come up with a name for my blog. It took me a long time to come up with a name for a couple of reasons. First, I would like to have a place to store my digital scrapbook pages. Two, the blog must be appropriate for all ages. I thought about the point I was trying to get across...what did I want everyone to know about me? And my blog? Well, I received a very nice, unexpected e-mail from a co-worker today who is retiring soon. She told me that I have a heart of gold and that I am a truly genuine person. I was so happy that my hard work has shown! Being nice, honest and unbiased is not ALWAYS easy! Heart of Gold (H.O.G.) Digital Memories is the name I decided on. The acronym spells hog! HOG BLOG!! It sounds incredibly corny.  Here are the other names that I seriously considered:

Delicious Digi
Digital Betty
Digital Underground (but I did not go with this one so Public Enemy can't sue me)

I spent time on naming this project as if I was naming my first born child. How silly of me!

Back to the reason why I was inspired to make a hour before I received the e-mail from said nice co-worker, I read that a scrapbooking website I adore and have trolled for nine (9) years is looking for designers to create things with their products. Since I used to do this for many years for Gotta Crop, I decided I would like to be a part of the industry again since I have had great luck with digital scrapbooking.

I am sure there are 100's of people applying and I do not have many samples but I would like to try. The first step, create a blog. Second step, utilize the blog. Third step, which I just discovered today, is leave the computer and go to bed! This is addicting! Blogging Betty is typing her heart out this evening!

Please come back soon. I will have family photos, wedding photos, stories from every darn city I have lived in and/or visited. Maybe I will even tell you a ghost story from the haunted Pershing house (as my husband has rightfully named it). I am quite unpredictable so check in every so often. Don't forget to check the links on the right hand page for wedding photos!!!!

Happy Fall everyone from the HOG BLOG!
