Warning. Falling Confetti. 200th Post!
Well, it's really like any other day, but I feel like I reached a personal milestone. I started this blog mainly for fun but shortly after I started, I wavered between thinking it foolish to share things about my life with an unknown audience to thinking that it was something that wasn't foolish. At first, it was a struggle to strike that balance of what to write and just how much to share. Then, when I started getting the hang of it, I quickly got to a point that I felt horribly inferior to so many of the bloggers that I love and read every day. But I have since come to realize that it didn't matter to me whether I had a million people logging on to read my posts (and I'm glad, too because that would be so much pressure!) Blogging is still fun. It is an outlet and it has become a way for me to challenge myself by trying to figure out my little niche in blogland.
Since I began blogging, I have found so much inspiration through the Catholic Moms Blog network where there are so many wonderful Catholic mom blogs. Click on the side bar and visit any one of the many blogs listed there. While many of them are much better than my blog, I realized that we all have our own style and way of expressing things. The nice thing about the Body of Christ is that we all have our unique talents and contributions to make. I began to place more of a focus on my Catholic faith in my posts. I found writing about things pertaining to my faith to be very rewarding and in the process I have learned things and also have been reminded of things I knew but needed a little refresher.
If you come here to read I would love to hear your thoughts on my blog. Hopefully I can stay around for the next 200 posts! In the meantime, it is my hope that in visiting my blog you have found it to be informative, entertaining and fun. That is what I strive to create. I thank you for coming and supporting my venture into blogging. For all of us who do this, you know it is not always easy!
