2012 has already been prosperous for us and I have a feeling it will only get better! Sunday night Jon reminded me that our wedding anniversary is in just a couple of weeks. How crazy is that?? Time flies when you are in a loving, happy marriage (I love you big mister). While on the topic of anniversaries, we talked about my 1 year blog-iversary coming up. February 25th, 2011, 20 days after getting married, I started this blog to chronicle my life as a newlywed, Christian woman.
Jon remembered that I had a goal of 100 followers by my October birthday and I more than exceeded that number. It felt so great! He said "how cool would it be to get 500 followers by your blog-iversary" and it got me thinking.
Why do I blog?
If I didn't gain one more follower for the rest of my life, I would be content. Numbers don't matter. My goals for this blog have changed immensely over the past 11 months and I couldn't be happier with the direction my blog is going. I now strive to be an example of a God-fearing, God-loving woman. I hope to reach those who are looking for guidance and understanding. I want to inspire and encourage. I also want to share my journey as a wife. About the ups and downs Jon and I face while building our marriage and growing our family. I also hope to make you laugh. In addition, I love sharing my recipes, quirky party pics, and showing off my cutie pup, Ernie.
My goal for this blog is continue to touch lives. If I get just 1 comment from a reader who was moved by a post or who sparked an idea from something I wrote, my job is done. I feel like God has given me a voice to be a leader and my blog is my outlet.
So blogger friends, why do you blog? What are your blogging goals for this year?
