  9. Among other things, I've learned that you can make great meaningful friendships online and that you don't have to blog everyday or leave a comment on every person's post you read to be a good friend/follower.

  13. Being yourself is definitely a great concept to take into consideration. πŸ™‚

    I've learned so much through-out my blogging experience, but one of the main things was that a blog design is very important. You need something not too boring where it will make readers go to sleep, and not too busy where readers can't even find the post section.

    In my opinion, a blog design is important because it's usually the first thing that bloggers notice. Also, it can determine whether readers will stay and read what special thoughts you have to share.

  21. That's beautiful Barbie, πŸ™‚ Well I haven't been blogging long, only a few weeks now, I would have to say, that my beloved Jesus has shown me through this blogging process, that no matter what is going on in this little life of ours, never lose focus on the important things & Use every moment to serve him and glorify him, not ourselves.

  25. I'm afraid I don't have any good blogging advice! I've been blogging for over 5 years, but have very few followers, so I don't think I'm doing anything that would help anyone if they're trying to be a "successful" blogger. πŸ™‚ I find that I blog mostly to brag about how sweet and beautiful my kids are, for the benefit of family members, and as an outlet for the things God is doing in my heart or teaching me in His Word. If it's beneficial to anyone else, that's just a bonus! πŸ™‚

  29. i have learned that through blogging you may minister to someone you never will meet in this age and who may live on the other side of the planet! everyone's journey is worth sharing because we never know who needs the encouragement we have to share.

  33. I too have learned it's more fulfilling and spiritually, emotionally and physically rewarding to just be "ME". I focused too much (not so long ago) about the numbers (followers, posts, and comments) and some days, when the numbers were up, so was I. Then during the times the numbers were lower (not as many posts per week, fewer comments and losing a follower or two along the way) then I was down.

    Then I began to ask myself the reason for this. I asked God what He wanted me to do with it. And find that my blog is changing, evolving. And that's okay. I share what is there and only pray that it "brings a smile to you" Lord. =)

  37. Something that I've learned is not to compare my life with those of other bloggers. God puts us all just where He wants us to be, and I've learned to be thankful with where He has me. Great question! Happy Wednesday, Barbie!! :o)

    Lindsay <3

  41. I have three bits of advice.

    1. Don't get upset if your husband and friends don't read or comment on your blog.
    2. Slow and steady. It takes time for people to find you and return. Even if one person is blessed or learns something from you, it's worth it.
    3. Use bullet points, paragraphs and pictures. It breaks up a post and makes it easier to read.

    Happy Bogiversary Beth!

    Love you,

  49. If you want to start a blog, just do it. Don't worry about getting everything perfect (logo, background, ect) at first. That will all come as you learn. I have taught myself some html through blogging but I was somewhat overwhelmed at first until I just committed to that first post.

  53. Congratulations Barbie on your anniversary! I think I would definitely have to agree with you, to not worry about how many followers you have. I would also have to say that the one thing I've learned is that mamas have so much in common, their support is great, and it's always nice knowing that we're not alone πŸ™‚

  77. I learned that I am still learning! When I first started blogging I wanted my blog to look like hers no hers no hers (get my point) then I realized my blog is just like ME growing and changing. What I want to be is an encourager to at least post something that will help someone learn about what a loving God we have. Oh and sometimes followers follow and you don't even know they do, just like life right? Be an example of Love.

  81. I love your word… lover! That's great cause it applies to so many things! Well being new to blogging this is a tough one, because I still feel like I'm discovering things everyday. I definitely identify with feeling like somedays I have nothing to write about and it's ok! One thing I've learned is that it is a great way to document everyday life. Even if nobody comments, or reads, or cares – hehe – It's pretty much like journaling on the computer. It's fun to go back and read old posts and see how you feel about things now. "You live life forwards and understand it backwards."

    Have a wonderful wednesday barbie!

    ps- it's also a great way to connect with people that you otherwise might not be able to meet! πŸ˜‰

  83. I love your word… lover! That's great cause it applies to so many things! Well being new to blogging this is a tough one, because I still feel like I'm discovering things everyday. I definitely identify with feeling like somedays I have nothing to write about and it's ok! One thing I've learned is that it is a great way to document everyday life. Even if nobody comments, or reads, or cares – hehe – It's pretty much like journaling on the computer. It's fun to go back and read old posts and see how you feel about things now. "You live life forwards and understand it backwards."

    Have a wonderful wednesday barbie!

    ps- it's also a great way to connect with people that you otherwise might not be able to meet! πŸ˜‰

  85. Good morning Barbie, I love this and have found it so fun as well.
    The one thing I've learned from blogging is that you can make some of the closest best friends in the world though you've never met them. I never did pen-pals but I'm amazed at how close I feel with friends I've gotten to know online.
    Have a blessed day!

  93. A: to be yourself!!! it's easy to come across as someone better than yourself or to not be real, but then what would the point of that be?! also, it's easy to compare your life with other bloggers, but i've learned to be thankful for the life God has given me and not want anything other than His plans!

    Your word fits you perfectly!

    One thing I wish I could pass on? Be yourself — who you are to be in Christ. That the numbers, comments, followers — all that truly doesn't matter.

    God bless you today!

  105. I was wondering how you would describe yourself-glad you joined in too:-) A lover is a great thing to be, and I'm sure your family and friends feel that love! I also like your insight from what you've learned. It's easy to get wrapped up in watching that followers # go up and wonder why you lose one when you do. I've learned like you, to be myself. It's better for me! There's no need to put on a front about who you are and how things in your life are going-people would rather you be real about it anyways! It lets people know they're not alone in their struggles with daily life.
