To blog or not to blog up my journals, that is my question....

:work: Well poll actually,…
I have been told by many that I should have a blog - dunnoh if I am really that interesting but suppose I do have some mad tangents leading me astray each week. 
So what do YOU reckon should I blog up my journal or not?

:iconcarameldansenplz: I am Co-Founder of a great new group with Mandala-Jim called :iconhand-drawn-mandala: for everyone that creates or just loves hand-drawn mandalas...
NO COMPUTERS ALLOWED TO CREATE / DRAW the mandalas! Else all goes..
All membership requests should be accepted straight away as long as settings dont have another hiccup!
For the start can we request that you upload just 3 of your favourites so far..
we'll adjust the figures according the popularity of the group
mandala for the new year by hadas64Origin 38 by steveoxleyMandala 12 by Crejzi Just three of the gorgeous ever growing collection...
Any suggestions welcomed

You will notice (if you watch my scraps) that I am putting on a lot of tutorials covering paisley flowers and leaves - tangle borders and stylised animals, obviously not all of my watchers like these so this is probably best way of putting them on?
I am also co-founder of :iconzentangle-community: which is only a month old:
...needless to say you would be very welcome to join/watch :)
Hearty Valentangle by Quaddles-Roost:faint:  A FIRST in eight years on dA - I typed Valentangle into the dA search and mine was the ONLY dev, obviously not that many tanglers on here lately!
Original challenge here under scroll down to #154 heading

:iconnahrain: suggested "hugging" as my next theme and with Valentine Day just yesterday (yep, I am a day late doing this!)

Quaddles-Roost's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Yes it is an old photo - look way better there than now :giggle:
Born in the 60`s in UK and now live in rural Norfolk, England.
Current photo here Photographer Photographed.. by quaddie in my HUGE grey cardigan worn on first autumn day cos it keeps my bum warm being that long :giggle:

Left college after completing art foundation course as disagreed with tutors that a pile of rusty baking trays was worthy of a scholarship when they couldn`t even draw a straight line! Have done much art since then so haven`t missed out - apart from earning loads of money! Since then have tried many mediums - for past few years has been mainly watercolour, ink and wash local scenes with a lot of glass and silk painting . Got seriously back into art again since July 2006 when encouraged as part of my pain therapy, In 2009, daughter finished Uni and moved out got a craft room - which I sometimes even get to use...
Since finding dA am finally enjoying my art again - thanks guys
Just love to do rather intricate pen works... with surrealism for a nice relax... and the odd wyurmie or critter

Personal Quote: I'm so close to heaven, This hell is not mine
