I never find it easy to say things about myself and yet blogging about my life seems the natural thing to do. Oh, I get upset and happy, teary and optimistic like other people do; it’s just that I think my lows are lower and my highs peak above the rest. Anyway, writing about feelings is much more comfortable than actually telling them to someone. I always fear the rejection I might face then.
So, here I am, talking to an anonymous audience, laying my soul bare and telling you stuff I wouldn’t dare tell others. I’d love to see your comments, and hope you will be as honest with these as I am in my writing. If you want to criticise, please do. I can only grow by taking note of that, although I have one teeny request: don’t reject, just say it with kindness.
I love blogging because I am fascinated by people. It makes me realise how different – and how similar – we are to one another. We all feel pain. We all cry. And boy, do we enjoy a good laugh!
Well, that’s me: a mother, a woman, an amateur photographer,a small business owner and a writer.

I can’t believe I’m the first to comment here, but I have a question: Are you a hairy potter?
Hehehe! Nope, definitly not a hairy potter, just a potter 🙂
Hopestar it is time you put something interesting on your about page!

Thank you so much Subhan, you’re very kind.

I hear you on blogging being therapy. I am starting to think of it as my support group. 🙂
It is almost like a support group Currie Rose, how right you are.
You answered my question today, before I had a chance to come to your “about” page…glad to hear that you’re “under the influence”, maybe those dark clouds will lift!
The “under the influence” seems to have started working now 🙂
Writing is very therapeutic. 🙂 And that’s awesome you make dolls. My mama used to make dolls and women’s underwear when I was a kid.
Lovely PAZ. Did your mom make porcelain dolls?
thank you for following my blog, Im now following your love everything about it. Hugs!

Thanks for visiting me! My grandmother, Helen McCook, was an art teacher and a porcelain doll maker. Handcrafted every last piece from the clay to the moulds to the hand sewn bodies and clothes. Amazing skill… kind of a lost art I would guess. Good for you for keeping it alive!
Thank you so much for the comment. Nice to hear about your grandmother. There aren’t that many porcelain doll makers around anymore. Thank you too for the visit.
Thank you for following my blog. Time seems to be compressed lately. I awake today feeling so grateful for my life and all its’ blessings so I decided to start thanking people. Blog-pals are important to me. Hugs to you- Mae

Thank you 🙂
Another nomination for you, as I find you inspiring, as are all the ladies patient enough to still deal with those of us who are not of the divine gender. *Big hugs*
Thank you so much 🙂
Hope, I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award because I sense that you have a lot of pain inside, and yet, when I visit your blog, you offer only encouragement, and when you visit other blogs, you almost always leaves a *hug*. I think perhaps you don’t even realize just how special your *hugs* are. They inspire others to want to be kinder and more caring, and doesn’t the world need a lot more people like you?
The rules for accepting the nomination are found here:
Thanks you so much Cheryl, this is so sweet of you and your kind words mean so much to me.
Hi! Thanks for liking my gallery. Really appreciate it. I hope your weekend has been lovely so far, and I’m looking forward to following your blog 🙂

Thanks Bulldog, It helped to have help 🙂
I like your page and I can very much identify with the feeling if sharing emotions with words being easier than with actual people.
Thanks twindaddy, I am glad you also find this to be a way of getting things off your chest rather than sitting with a therapist.
Therapists are too expensive. WordPress is free.
Good point 🙂
Your “friend” was wise. This is a very good “about” page.
I seriously had help, Scott 🙂
Indeed a lovely “about” page Hope. 🙂 *hugs*
Thanks Sonel 🙂
You are very welcome hon. 🙂 *hugs*
Great About! Then again you have a great blog Happy!

Thanks my friend 🙂
I like it, and it is funny, you have problems talking about yourself on that about page, but in your posts we get to know you much better and you are honest about yourself so easily. So no worries , I know more about you through your posts than this page. And as summary, you are an amazing, honest, wonderful soul. Sending you my love and a very special hug! Ute

Thanks for visiting my blog and for liking my Weekly Photo Challenge: Curiosity post 🙂
I just love the little kitten – makes me think that’s what my little Cliffy would have looked like at that age 🙂 I adopted him when he was already a year old so I never saw him as a tiny baby.
I’m glad you like the pictures of him, he has grown a little bigger now too and will post updates. I think he probably does look like your Cliffy when he was a kitten, so many of the little kittens look alike, it seems as they grow older that there natures determine the way they look, in attitude and expression that is 🙂
YOU CAUGHT ME! (uh-huh?) http://bythemightymumford.wordpress.com/
Thank you for your amazing hugs. I love your blog!
Thank you so much 🙂
Thank you for passing by my blog – it means a lot to me, besides the fact that I now get to read your blog and take a look at your fabulous photography! I too find it so much easier to express my feelings in writing – verbally I get tongue-tied, or blurt things out every way but the way I want them to come out – I guess, we are similar in our differences !
I think we are quite similar then GG. It was my pleasure popping by and I appreciate your visit too, thank you.
I love the way you write, its like I’m just sitting beside you and having a conversation with an old friend. Thanks for sharing your inner thoughts. I’ll be sitting beside you once in awhile, hope this doesn’t sound creepy to you 🙂

I am so glad that I came across your blog. Me too blog about my difficulties with depression. The way you expressed your motive behind blogging sounds like my own words! If some one asks me why do I blog, that is exadtly what I would like to say; but I could not formulate it the way you did. Perhaps that higlights how similar we are!!
I liked the name of the blog: happyhugger. I like hugging. in my blog when I am writing to people I send them a hug. I like to hug people; I am hugger too. It is a great way of expressing our love to one another. No words can communicate the love one express and communicates through hugs.
Looking forward for your posts. Take care.
It seems we are quite similar then, Niranjan. So glad you popped over to my blog for a visit and I also hope that some of what I have written may be beneficial to you.

You are welcome!

Thank you for you blog.
I appreciate and enjoy it.
Thank you 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you for dropping by my blog and following. 🙂 I am glad to meet you.
All the best.
Thank you for the return visit, Imelda. Nice to meet you too ❤
May I see your dolls, Michelle? If you show me yours, I will show you mine (not that I have made them, I bought them) 😉
I will post a few pictures. I dont do as many dolls anymore because I cant get the imported porcelain any more. Would love to see yours 🙂
That’s a shame. Let me know when you post them please. Here are 7 links when and if you have time. http://wp.me/p2ij8U-1kY http://wp.me/p2ij8U-1hq
Will do, thank you 🙂
I nominate you for the One Lovely Blog Award!
That is so kind of you, thank you 🙂
You’re very welcome!
you have a great blog name – that;s for sure – but also a great blog 🙂 ❤ – I have been following for a while, but had to stop by and leave a comment here 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂 ❤
Thanks so much for following our blog, Oh, the Places We See. It’s great to read your About page — how lovely that you are a dollmaker. I’ve thought at times I would like to try that, but haven’t. Post some of them for us to see. Best wishes for happy hugging, happy blogging, and a happy life all around. http://ohtheplaceswesee.com
It is my pleasure. Thank you for the visit too. Will post some pics sometime 🙂 ❤

I can’t believe that I’ve never read your ‘about’ page, as I’ve been following you for so many years. I feel I know you pretty well, and am really glad that we’ve become blogging buddies. xx hugs
I am too ad. I think you know me much better than my about page 🐥💞
Oh yes, I feel like we are old friends. 🙂 I have nominated you to take part in the 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge, if you have the time to do it. https://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2015/02/21/last-day-of-the-5-day-bw-photo-challenge-the-ponte-vecchio/ Have a lovely weekend. xx hugs
