Today is the first year anniversary of Sedef's Corner. Although I had started the blog as a place to store and publish my writings, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I had been writing for the past four years, but without an outlet except the graciousness of my friends. I was writing because I just had to and this blog became a great place to keep doing it.
What prompted me to put serious time and effort into it was a book I read by Rita Golden Gelman - "Tales of a Female Nomad- Living at Large in the World." Through the message I garnered from her book, on May 29th 2010, I finally took the courageous step and said, "this is how I want to live my life." Thorough the course of the past year, as life went on one day at a time, I tried to share my experiences, thoughts and knowledge... basically all the things I love, right here.
There was no one theme in the beginning except for my experiences, but slowly as I let things happen, this became a place where I started to share my knowledge from one of my biggest passions - Art History. And today, I feel Sedef's Corner has finally come into its own as a blog about Art and the History of Art. I am and always will be an ardent lover of art and I hope to continue my journey into the past as well as the present of this enchanting world. From now on, this will be my platform for all that I find interesting about the creative process.
I will have to start another blog for my traveling tales... Hope to see you there as well...
