Today marks my 1 year of blogging even though the blog was opened up 2 years ago. It’s a milestone that I’m amazed I can even commit to this one thing. When I started out, I didn’t really think I’d be consistent with it, but honestly after the 21 day fast blog where I had to seriously discipline myself to blog everyday chronicling my thoughts during the fast, I think that truly helped me get my act together to remain consistent in this thing. They say it takes 21 days to create a habit and 21 days to break it so the 21 day fast blog during the beginning of this year helped out in such a big way that I find it normal to blog regularly now.
I have noticed that my blog seems to go into a cycle of new seasons. My blogging style keeps changing with the times. It’s like I feel that everytime I am swayed in a different direction the theme follows that direction. It’s amazing how my writing keeps evolving. Started off with character building posts, and then onto fasting, then spiritual warfare, then my testimony and then about issues regarding intercessory prayer and then difficult topics that are less discussed and now it moves onto worship and evangelism. Moving from revelation to revelation and from inspiration to inspiration. It’s been an interesting year of blogging for me.
It still remains a journey of self-discovery for me, however, I did not really expect to garner an audience to my tales, thoughts and ideas. I think when I decided to make it more of a spiritual journey blog, I knew I had made the right decision. I kind of thought that it would remain as a personal online journal, but what I’ve learned in the bloggosphere after 1 year of blogging, is that:
1). You never know who you’ll encounter – You meet interesting people with amazing minds out there that you may not encounter all the time in your daily walk.
2) Discipline – it takes a lot of effort to become disciplined at writing on a regular basis.
3) Imagination – I find that my imagination is still alive and well and constantly ticking with new ideas for creativity, I have a lot of readers and bloggers to thank for that.
4) You can look at yourself through other people’s eyes – through their comments.
5) Don’t underestimate your worth – Sometimes, I read amazing blogs that inspire me to write something to help someone else. There is so much that I learn from others through this beautiful social media tool that I see the world as limitless.
6) Always keep growing – I’d like to think that I as a writer that I am evolving as I continue on along emotionally, spiritually & creatively.
7) Last but not least – I thank God for the Blog. He inspires my writing the most and I am so blessed to find out how it has helped others. I didn’t think I would use it as a form of evangelism, but the world really is limitless now isn’t it?
Thank you all who read my blog for being an inspiration and I welcome you all to celebrate my blog party right here on WordPress! Have some virtual cake Everybody! Love Y’all!
