Woo Hoo! I cannot tell you ladies how much fun I am having at my own party. I wish I could keep it going another week or so, but then I’d have to run out and get more prizes. Well, it’s a good excuse to have another party soon, right?
Thank you all so much for responding to the question of the day yesterday. I found out so much about your personality in just one word! Some of you have inquired about how I would describe myself in just one word. I’ve been thinking about it all day. I did not realize how hard this would be…so hard that some of you just couldn’t do it! I would describe myself as: LOVER! I am a lover of my Jesus, the sole source of my strength, joy and peace; a lover of my family, the people who, next to God, that I would rather spend all of my time with; a lover of my girlfriends, those who walk beside me in this life and support and encourage me, and make me laugh; and a lover of, well COFFEE of course! If you know me at all you will know that I absolutely cannot function without my coffee. And, I don’t make my own. I make horrible coffee. So I break the bank to get the good stuff!
I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned about blogging along the way:
- I’ve learned how important it is to just be myself. This is hard sometimes. I often compare myself to others and wonder if what I have to offer is worthy of reading. But I have found that if I stay true to myself, and what God has called me to do, then I will be successful. I have had the greatest success in finding friends like you along the path.
- I’ve learned that it really doesn’t matter how many followers I have. Neither does it matter how many comments I receive, or whether someone recently unsubscribed from my blog. I do not write to gain followers. I write to uplift and encourage women in their journey with the Lord. That’s really all that matters.
- I’ve learned that I could probably add well over 1,000 blogs in my Google Reader. There are so many fantastic blogs out there and yes, I read many. I’ve learned that it’s okay that I don’t read them all every day. I’ve learned that it’s important though to leave comments as often as I can, to encourage other bloggers, and to build relationship with them. I’ve learned that I cannot be offended if someone does not comment. We all lead busy lives and we must lead one another with grace.
- I’ve learned that I will have uninspired days. There are days when there is absolutely nothing happening in my life that anyone would want to read about. It’s okay that I don’t post every day. Life happens and this is the way it is.
I’ve learned so much more, but now it’s time for the Question of the Day:
What is one thing that you’ve learned through blogging that you
could pass on to others?
could pass on to others?
I am looking forward to tomorrow!
