Wow Linda, such a serious little image.
I think it is great when blogging leads to other things, but being jealous has never been a big part of my blogging experience. I do however think it is great that a little blog can become a communication porthole.
Look forward to the discussion as always,
L.

Haha - don't mean to freak everyone out with this picture! I just loved the rendering of the interior - very old master. What got cut off is the knife wielder is actually a fairy I think - she has wings. Click on the pic for a larger view of the detail.

If a person is another blogger and they have not asked themsleves, "Why do I want to do a blog? What is it that I want to accomplish? Who am I trying to reach?" etc. blogger envy and jealousy could certainly be a consequence. Linda, your blog and other successful blogs have very clear intent, content and energy. Having recently started blogging I am just beginning to understand what it takes to do one well and I have a great deal of respect for your blog and what you have done with it. Keep it up!

This painting is amazing! I am wondering if it is a "dream" because I did notice the fairy wings...perhaps the message is about the thoughts that one may be having about another?

Anyway, you gals did a terrific job covering this subject that I am still learning...so much about!

Just listened to SRT and loved it. You have such a wonderful voice for this medium and a lot of depth in your comments. I stop in from time to time but do not comment very often. I find your candor refreshing.

I can't imagine someone being jealous of my blog, but I envy everyone else's creativity....so yes, I've experienced it! Embarrassing!
