Operation: Launch the Blog!!

It’s been my plan for quite some time to get a proper blog launched into space. I had thoughts and ideas swirling for months. Contemplated the purpose of it and what it would include, this i-land of Karen’s World!


It certainly must be photo-centric. Voiceover inclusive. Link to my Google+ hangout shows – along with other shows I’ve visited or co-hosted. Linkage to interviews. Be a place to say, share and create.  I wanted one place on the internet to call my own where EVERYTHING could live, work and play together in perfect harmony. Or pleasant cacophony, depending.

And now… voila! This is it.  A humble beginning, but a start nonetheless. I’m excited and ready to have a new adventure!! This also coincides nicely with my very first trip ever to New Zealand – the land of a lifelong dream for me. I’m part of the Team of Trey for Trey’s New Zealand Photo Adventure, from Feb. 6-10, 2013!

To get in the mood ahead of time, I pulled out  photo of mine from a year or so ago, taken on Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe. It always looked to me like the land of hobbits, elves and magic… and seemed the perfect image light up this new phase – and my very first-setting-foot-in-NEW ZEALAND-moment!! (I’ve been writing that in capital letters for a few weeks now. It’s the one place my extreme excitement pops out, like the screech of a little girl! Otherwise I’m trying to stay super focused to wrap up everything I need to before I go!)
