    Well stated Machelle. I am glad that you feel so strongly about blogging and learning as part of what God’s plan is for your life. Keep plugging along and learning and you will reach people and touch lives.

      Thanks Thaleia. It has been a huge learning curve to do more than just write and post. However, I will keep plodding along! Thanks for your encouragement!

    You’re right in that we try to figure in our own way what HE is wanting us to do. I’m glad you’re using this platform to share with others. I’ll be right alongside you.

    I’m enjoying the boost your blog challenge too. I know one way to grow a blog is to do guest posts but I just don’t have time/energy to devote to that. But this challenge is something I can do. I look forward to seeing how my blog grows through it!

      Thank you Marie. I enjoy writing. My challenge is time. Thus I think one of the reasons God chose a blog for me : ) It forces me to make it more of a priority.

    I’m participating in the challenge as well and am excited to see where it takes me in my blogging. Consistent posting has been my issue, as well as deciding how much of my life to share with the world. I’ll be happy to be on the journey with you!

      Jessica, it sounds like we struggle with the same things. I have tried blogging in the past – and failed quite miserably, even at just keeping friends and family up to speed about our lives. I, well really He, has decided I should be more purposeful this time : ) Thus I have set some goals – small ones, like posting once a week at first. I also face the challenge of how much to share. I want to be real, raw and relevant (even thought about using that as a tagline : ) Yet, I do not want to step over a boundary of sharing too much.. Balance. I look forward to hearing down the road how things are going for you.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving the link back to yours! I love this post and really understand. It is hard for me to be consistent as well. I will be really good for a while and then drop off the face of the earth.
    It is neat to look at your blog as your mission field or one way you can possibly impact or encourage some people and that helps me to keep it more meaningful and consistent instead of just fluff.
