It's been one year since I became intentional about my blog. One year, 365 days, 223 posts and lots and lots of adventures shared. I need to take this moment to pat myself on the back and treat myself to some chocolate for keeping at it. You see, I have started blogs before and I actually had created this exact blog in April of 2012 and left it sitting with one post all that time.
I know it took pushing from Taylor to get me to do this. He wrote me a letter a while back (romantic, right?) and he said, I want you to spend more time on your blog. You have an incredible talent, and I hate to see you not use it. I think God will really use you now and in the future to reach thousands of people. You have a unique way of communicating and you should use it for God's glory. It stuck with me. I'm glad I have a husband who won't let me sit by and waste what I'm passionate about.
The lack of confidence in myself is what kept me from doing it. Do I have anything to say? Will anybody care? But, I got past that and realized I write for me and share it in the hopes of someone else finding it helpful. I share our little family adventures and photos because that is where I find my joy. It may not be reaching thousands of people and it may never reach them. I may not be running ads or making money (something I struggle with on whether or not to do, but am open to it). But, I am writing and that is where my heart feels at home.
Happy birthday, Batman and Belle!
