Hi everyone. https://odaciuk.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/blogging-101-the-commons/ I’ve been blogging since the beginning of April this year and almost gave up until some of my photography started to get noticed and now I’m finding success in combining photography with poetry. I must say that when I joined some “Challenges” that serendipitously came my way, that’s when things started to flow and I began to feel like I was in a community. Below you will find some “About Me” stuff that I already have on my blog and need to organize better and that why I’m here in Blogging 101—to organize stuff and make it look more beautiful. I am a mom/retired teacher/artist/writer and an aspiring photographer. I love those surprise moments in everyday life that twinkle and call us to take a quick shot. I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.
