Blogger Award Feature: New End Studio

Gloria of New End Studio tells me that when she first started blogging that she had no idea what she was getting into by writing a blog.  She goes on to say "it began in March of 2010 as a means to scratch a little crack into the shell I had built up around myself, with the hope that eventually I would break through." She decided to keep working at opening herself up and that, as she says, "somehow, someway, my sharing would make someone feel good about themselves and they might get to takeaway something worthwhile, and boy, that would be wonderful."

Well some 2 years later, she's still at it and sharing stories about herself, her life, her sweet dog, her art --- and so many of us would say that we are finding something worthwhile and wonderful about visiting Gloria's blog.

But I think that Gloria is also, in return, getting quite a bit back from getting out there in the blogosphere. She has blown that shell around herself wide open. She is enjoying the interaction with readers and says "their comments are some of the best."  "They make me laugh and they fill baskets to the top with wisdom, inquiry and gentleness."

Gloria says, "for me, I like to read across the board, almost all subjects.  I love to find a takeaway, a seed, a mood, and a little treasure to carry with me for a while."

This post is part of a series of featured bloggers who I have given appreciation awards to, please stop by and visit Gloria's blog and congratulate her!
