I've been blogging now for one year! I owe myself a celebration.
I'm so proud of myself. Yes, proud. (Using the word "proud" invokes a twinge of uneasiness within me because as you and I know, Christians aren't to be prideful and we're constantly reminded of that, but I'm not being prideful in that kind of way. I guess I'm more thankful, but proud too because I've come from a past of not completing what I start. So, yes, I am proud of having followed through on this blog for one year.)
In honor of my first year, I did a little bit of thinking about my blog:
My first blog post was May 23, 2012 where I talked about taking off my perfect mask and being the Imperfect Christian Woman God has called me to be.
I still struggle with allowing my real Imperfect self to shine through. That's why sometimes you'll see weeks go by with no blog posts. I'll write blog posts that are real and authentic, revealing my imperfect self or something maybe a little controversial, but I end up not posting them. Because sometimes being openly imperfect is like wearing no clothing in front of other people.
Another thing: In previous posts, I've referred to my husband as "The Husband." I did that because I noticed a few other bloggers used an anonymous name for their spouses. But reviewing my past posts, The Husband sounds so impersonal.
I'll no longer refer to my husband as The Husband. I will now refer to him as my husband or Scot because that is his real name, and it sounds so much better than The Husband.
Lastly, I will post more regularly, more consistently.
Those were just a few things that came to mind when I briefly thought about my first year of blogging.
If you've been thinking about starting a blog, I encourage you to step out and do it. Chances are you've been giving it some thought for a while, so go for it!
