2012 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

My name is Kim McIlrath.  Welcome to my blog, Singledou[b]t.  

I am a single woman living in New York City.  I moved to the city almost 9 years ago expecting to only be here a couple of years but soon found myself in love and desiring not to leave.

I am a "struggling" artist.  By struggling, I mean I love to create but I am shy so my art often takes a back seat.  I love photography, writing, knitting, cooking, and creating.  I find life in finding ways to create or recreate.

My blog was started almost a year ago as I felt an itch to leave my 9-5 and pursue my artistic passions.  Writing has been something I have done since I was 9 or 10 but never let the world see it.  I finally decided to take the plunge and let those around me see my various musings.

My blog is as eclectic as I am.  Most days its centered around my faith and what I am learning.  Other days its focused on what I am creating.  My heart and goal for my blog is to share what I am learning, whether its in my creating or from my faith in the living God.  Often times, I am processing out loud and love to hear how others have learned from similar experiences. Blogging is a way for me to channel my creativity, an outlet for the things that I am passionate about.  

I love to learn. I love to find new ways to express myself.  One thing I want to see come out of being a part of blogging communities is having a fresh perspective on the world and lives around me.  Seeing how blogging and living life out loud affects others in a positive way is an area I want to continue to grow in.

My Favorites:

I love to recreate foods I love.  This was one of my favorite breakfast items at starbucks

A post on trusting God with our most precious dreams and desires

A creative piece about a young adult with a parent living with Bipolar disorder
