This Whole Blogging Thing

As many of you know I just recently celebrated my first blogaversary…. He he, it is amazing how many words you can change to make it specific to blogging. But anyway… about blogging.

When I first started blogging it was because I wanted to write about mine and Cory’s trip through Europe. I am so glad I did that, because I am so thankful for the motivation to write down all of the wonderful times we had while we were there. I love being able to look back on the posts about various European adventures.

After I got home I didn’t really blog much for a while. My life wasn’t exciting anymore, I was just home, working, playing, working, playing. Just life. And then I realized… just life. Lightbulb! All of the little everyday experiences that seem so meaningless are so important for that very reason. It is my life. We only have one shot at this thing, and every day contributes to where we are going and what we are doing. And so I got back on the blogging wagon, fearful that I had already missed out on capturing many wonderful moments of everyday life.

In the last few months my ideas about blogging have evolved even further. I have “met” (read about, corresponded or commented back and forth with) many wonderful Christian women. Sometimes, being a believer in this crooked and depraved world, you have moments of feeling like you and your family and your tight circle are the only ones who have the same convictions. I have been so refreshed by the other blogs that I have come across who have rekindled my faith in the belief that there are still many good followers of Christ out there!

And so, having said all of that, I am taking that next tiny little step forward in blogging by beginning my sponsor page. I know what you are thinking, “you have like seven followers, how could you have a sponsor page???” Naturally… I can’t charge anything, of course. But I can swap buttons for free!
So, check out my sponsor page if you are interested. I am looking forward to branching out a little and meeting others who are like minded.


  1. Congratulations on your blogiversary! And double congratulations on your next big step with sponsorships. I haven't reached my 1-year yet, but like you I've seen it evolve and take shape slowly into a record of the experiences I don't ever want to forget that I have used to meet new people. Best wishes!

    1. Hi Brianne! I have been enjoying the whole process. Every phase represents a different time in my life, where my emphasis will inevitably be different. Best wishes to you as you continue on the journey!
