Three years ago today I published my very first blog post. I had no idea what I was doing. I dipped my little toe in the blogging world on April 24, 2018. I did not know where to start. I did not know what to write. But I knew I had to do it. After praying about it for several days an idea came to mind. I wrote about how unqualified I am to write.
The reason I started this blog was because of my children’s book, Joey Flynn’s Extraordinary Tale. I never wanted to be a writer. I had zero writing dreams or desires. Writing was nowhere on my radar, but God had a different plan.
I am terrible about promoting my book. There is a link on my home page and that’s about it for self promotion. I’ve just never been comfortable with pushing my book. If you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you can get my book for free. Several times a year I give away the Kindle version.
Three years goes by fast. A lot has happened in these brief years. I have learned a lot about my faith, and about myself. The first year of my little blog, I hardly wrote. Maybe once or twice a month. I bumped it up the second year. Now, I try to write a weekly post. It doesn’t always happen and sometimes I just don’t want to write.
To stay motivated to keep writing, I try and think of just one person. That maybe, just maybe, one person will read my post and be encouraged. My goal is the same today as it was in the beginning. Encouragement for the Believer, and plant seeds of faith for the Non-Believer.
I want to be as honest as possible about my own struggles, weaknesses, and triumphs. When I share parts of my life I pray that someone sees they are not alone. Christians are real people, with real issues, with real hope because of Jesus.
I just want to say “Thank you!” to each of you. Thank you for reading, following, and supporting my little blog. It’s my tiny corner of the world, so thanks for hanging out with me. Each of you are a blessing to me.
I’m always happy to pray for you. Please don’t hesitate to share your prayer requests with me. It’s a privilege to pray. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love you guys.
