I decided to jump into the world of blogging. This has been something that has been on my mind for a few years now, but did not become something I actively thought about until the beginning of this year. I would randomly tell people about my idea of starting a blog and everyone told me to do it; after much thought I decided to do it. Why did I think so long about it and not just start typing? I am a little crazy and I do not like to do things half way. I did not want to start something and not continue with it. If you do not know me then let me tell you a little bit about myself and this will help explain why I thought about not starting to blog.
My name is Shambray (I will come back to this). I am married to my best friend and the love of my life. We have been married for close to 6 years. We have a two year old daughter who keeps us entertained and more than busy. I work as a financial controller over health clubs and other various businesses my boss runs. I have been doing this for 6+ years. A lot of my heart and energy goes into these companies as I have been around since they first began and I want to see them succeed. Then if that was not enough I am also quite involved in my church. Adding all these things together means I am one very busy woman. Hence the reason why I thought long and hard about starting a blog.
Now onto the reasons why I started the blog. I LOVE reading blogs. I love everything about it. I like the friendships that can be created through the web, even if it is not in the traditional way. I like the inspiration I receive by reading blogs. Add in the fact that you can make your blog whatever you want it to be and I knew I wanted to do it. I love crafting so therefore I love creating. The idea of creating a blog sounded exciting to me. I also love doing many things and I feel like I needed something to push me to take time for myself (Crazy I know, but I do not do this automatically). So in enters the blog. I hope this helps me to take time for myself by creating a blog and creating great content for my readers.
Now I told you I would come back to my name. Call me vain, but I LOVE my name. I love the sound of it, I love the look of it (laugh if you want), I love when people say, "That is a beautiful name", and I love the uniqueness of it (although I have met 2 people with my name in the last 3 years). After thinking about different names for my blog I kept coming back to "Shambray" and there it stayed.
I hope you join me on my new journey of blogging! It should be a fun one!
