Blogging Meme

The Queen B did a fun meme today.

Here are the rules:

1. Write about 5 specific ways blogging has affected you, either positively or negatively.

2. link back to the person who tagged you

3. link back to this parent post

4. tag a few friends or five, or none at all

5. post these rules— or just have fun breaking them

I started blogging to keep family updated on our life. I handle 100-200 business emails every day which doesn't leave me very much time for chatty emails. So, I thought, "I'll try this blog thing..." I am really glad I did because it turned into a family journal that chronicles our life. I have pictures, stories, musings and heartaches chronicled. The funny thing is that my SIL is the only family who reads my blog. Thanks, J!

I have learned some cool stuff during this blogging adventure! Like how to clean the mold out of my front loading washer, canning & cooking, how to motivate my daughter to be a responsible citizen, and that Katy loves me. But wait. I knew that before I started blogging. BTW, Katy is having her baby tomorrow morning! Pray for her and baby Sarah Grace!

I can spend waaaay too much time blogging and reading blogs. 'nough said.

My blogging has inspired my King. He is blogging for the company now so the employees know what the CEO is thinking. Fun!

My favorite item to share is that my blogging has encouraged and challenged my faith while connecting me to so many wonderful women of faith. Like the average bear, I love comments on my blog. I repeat to myself often, "If you want a friend, be a friend." That means commenting on other blogs. Ahem. So, I am training myself to comment on these other blogs that I so enjoy. The following women, among others, have truly challenged me this year. Check out their blogs:

  • Sumi - who loves Jesus and witnessed her baby girl fly home to the King of Kings this year.
  • Heather - who loves Jesus and witnessed her best friend and soul mate fly home to our Precious Redeemer this year.
  • Lisa - who loves Jesus and authentically shares her walk with Christ ... both the highs and the melancholy lows. The girl loves chocolate and reading ... two of my favs.
  • Lisa - who loves Jesus and brings Proverbs 31 into perspective

I'm tagging you, my friend. Write on your blog how blogging has affected you. Don't have a blog? Get one. I promise that you will enjoy the ride.
