The Curiosities of Blogging

I’ve learned so much about blogging in the last year! Two of my favorite things are:

1) Reading posts and comments of other parents. Your stories have made me laugh out loud at my computer and others have made me cry.

2) The online fellowship with other believers in Jesus Christ. I love reading your blogs about real-life and how God sustains you in this crazy world. I live in an excruciatingly liberal state (NY), so your blogs are refreshment. The type of work I have been doing of late is 100% remote from my home office, which also makes your stories and experiences feel like good company!

Thank you for reading, commenting, and thanks for sharing your own life so candidly in your writings. I’ve learned so much from you.

I thank my God every time I remember you. Phil 1:3 NET

One year ago today – my first post:

Exposing Myself

I admire those who write blogs and honestly share their life story as they travel through their journey… perspectives from their past, present, and their hopes for the future.  Blogging often means exposing your true self – even if the “true self” lingers only for that particular day – and exposing ourselves takes courage.  While I’m low on bravery, I’m going for it anyway…. welcome to my blog.

This blog is a hodge-podge of my life happenings.  There is no consistent theme, order or rhythm.  In my fantasy life, it would have all three!  Here are my thoughts and experiences, written just as I am, where I’m at on this journey.

    I’ve enjoyed your “realness” in blogging. There are days when I think I should just hang it up, but then, I would just go back to the old-fashioned way…paper journals. I hope that you will continue sharing your life…as it comes. Blessings to you…in many more days of blogging.

      Me too! Then, like you, I still write and write in my journals. I’ll continue to blog a bit of my heart and still leave some thoughts exclusively for the paper. Thank you for the blessings and the comment. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed your writings very much.

    I know the ‘others’, the non-bloggers, don’t get it. They don’t know why we spend time writing or reading blogs. That’s OK. We, your fellow bloggers, think your anniversary is a BIG DEAL 😀
    So, good for you! We’re proud of you and happy for you. Thanks for posting this so that we could share your joy.
    Now you inspired me to check back and see when my adventure began.
    Best wishes for another great year of blogging,
    Kelly
