My sweetie says that I have reached a milestone in blogging and that I should announce it….so without further adieu, I announce to you…(drum roll please!)…I have officially had over 1000 views on my blog! 1074 to be exact.
This achievement leaves me feeling happy and proud of my little blog, but a little anxious as well. I started my blog not really thinking about who I wanted to read it. I just wanted to try having a blog, and that’s really as much as I knew. I didn’t even realize what blogging would entail…or how many blogs were out there…or how many resources for blogging…or how much I would like adding little “…” marks into my messages…it has been a whole new world for me.
And I love it. I do. But it is a unique experience. Especially for one as private as myself. There are days when I convince myself that I am just writing these things for myself and that no one else cares or sees, so I don’t have to feel nervous about what I write.
But then my Mama D. calls and asks if everything is ok…because I haven’t updated my blog in 4 days!! And my sweetie’s gram is asking if she broke the “blog-thingy” because it’s not showing her new stuff anymore. 😉 And then I remember, oh yeah…other people do read this.
All that to say…THANKS! I do love that God is pushing me further out of my comfort zone and that I am connecting more with my far away family as well as other christian women, friends, homeschooling moms and random blog surfers.
I love that people are reading my blog and then calling to talk to me about it.
And I love that unknown faces are reading my blog and never telling me about it.
I love that people are searching on google for “joy, peace, shoes” or “first day of school prayer” and they are finding MY blog!
