Artful Blogging Feature


A few months ago, the editor from Artful Blogging reached out to me about writing an article.  I am sure you can imagine my excitement!  What an honor!  
The task was thrilling and scary at the same time!  

My article was just published in the latest issue, released the beginning of May!  
I was elated to see that they chose to use three of my photos on the cover!


I have always compared my photos to the work of other blogger's and felt like mine just weren't up to par.  It was very affirming when the editor of a publication that featured artists and bloggers whom I have followed and admired for years reached out to me for a feature!

On the other hand, being asked to write an article to go along with the photos was quite intimidating!
I was given free reign on the subject matter, which as freeing as it may sound actually made the task more difficult.  Nonetheless, I enjoyed the process!
   

Overall, it was a fun and exciting experience!  The best part was walking into Barnes and Nobles with my little girl and seeing the look on her face when we took the magazine off of the shelf and opened it up to a photo of our handsome kitty, Boots!

Thank you so much to all of you who have followed me along on this blogging journey and continually showed your support and encouragement!

I appreciate you, more than you know!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

  2. Oh Amanda, I am so happy for you! I'm not at all surprised either because your work is always so inspiring and your photos amazing. It is sad that we are so hard on ourselves isn't it? I saw the magazine at Michael's the other day but I didn't pick it up. Greatness comes out of Camas, Washington.
    Blessings dear lady,
    Patti
    P.S. Hubby comes from Camas too and he is pretty great :)

    1. I said I didn't pick up the magazine but failed to mention that now that I know you are in it I will be going back to get it!

    2. Thank you so much, Patricia! I am glad you mentioned that you saw it at Michael's. I have looked for it in the past and had not found it there. I imagine some stores carry it and others do not. Thanks again for your sweet comments! Have a lovely weekend!

  4. This looks EXACTLY like our kitty Mocha who we sadly lost to kidney failure a few years ago. Gorgeous kitty, gorgeous furniture :).
