Blogger Award Feature: Tresese's Treasures

Therese, much like Christine (from my post yesterday), started blogging in earnest to join one of the many blog hops that run through the beading community. For Therese, it was Lori Anderson's Bead Soup that pushed her to start blogging regularly, and when she started her own blog Therese's Treasures. However, Therese says "I discovered a world that is so much more then bead soup!"

She says that she continues to blog to stay in touch with all her new online friends, and make new ones. She also notes that blogging helped her stay in touch with other beaders and challenges, and that this helped to improve her skills as a bead weaver and jewelry designer.

What Therese says she likes most about blogging is visiting the other blogs. She says "I follow to see what my friends have been up to and leave encouraging comments about what they have blogged about."  She of course, loves reading the comments from those that have  visited her blog because as she says "let's face it isn't that one of the reason we all keep blogging?" She also confessed, "I also still do a happy dance when I see that I have a new follower."  

She says that she likes to follow blogs that are just starting out, and that sometimes if "I think what they are doing is interesting I will pass on a word or two about their blog." 

The blog that most inspired her is Marcy's La Bella Joya. Her blog was the first that Therese followed when she was just starting to blog. Marcy's blog was what encouraged Therese to really get into bead weaving, which is amazing if you've ever seen Therese's work! She says that Marcy's color challenges really helped "me improve my stitching by branching out and trying new stitches."

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