Below are a few of my favorite things about blogging...
1. I love to meet new people.
Thanks to my social media accounts (this blog, Instagram and Twitter), I have been blessed to meet some amazing people. A few of whom I can call ‘best friends’.
2. I love to encourage.
When I first started this blog, it was with the intention of encouraging fellow believers, to remind them that God has great plans for them, and ultimately, that they aren’t alone. I have gotten so many emails and comments from people thanking me for my posts, or telling me how God used this or that to really speak to them. That’s the only reason I continue to blog.
3. I love to write.
Writing is a passion of mine - right next to my love for God and second only to music. If I couldn’t write, I think I’d probably go insane. I believe that God has gifted me with this talent and I choose only to glorify Him in and through it.
4. I love to hear from readers.
Feedback is always good. Constructive criticism is always good. But only when done with ‘grace and seasoned with salt’. Whenever I get an email or comment from someone graciously telling me about a mistake I made or something that they aren’t sure they agree with me on, I will gladly hear them out.
And comments just plain make my day. (Do I hear an amen from any fellow bloggers out there?)
5. I love my Jesus.
Like I said in reason #2, I began this blog to encourage fellow Christians. I blog for them, but ultimately for Jesus. I dedicated this blog to Him and I pray that everyone who reads it may be blessed and encouraged. It’s not about me, it’s about Him.
