"Still Here"

(by the Williams Brothers) Still



It's my 2nd Blogiversary!! Back when I started this little blog, I wasn't sure how long it would last ~ but I'm still here! If I were more talented, I'd write a poem like my friend Natalie. But you'll just have to settle for a little rambling by me & a random song by some people I've never heard of instead!

I'm not really sure what I'm doing with this here blog. I don't think I really have a "niche" or anything, but it's fun at times! Other times, I feel like I don't really have anything to say ~ so I don't say anything. My mister tells me that in order to have a successful blog, you have to be consistent. & I'm nowhere near consistent! But honestly, I don't know that I'm trying/wanting to be "successful" at this! What does that actually mean? That I have a bunch of readers? I don't know, sometimes I wish I had more. Then the thought of that makes me feel all prideful, and I don't want that!

If having more readers meant that more people were pointed toward Jesus, that would be awesome ~ but I don't know that I say enough about Him to do that. Or if having more readers could somehow raise funds for Ocular Melanoma research {and a cure!}, that would be awesome, too! Other than that, I think a bunch of readers would probably just make me think more of myself ~ and I sure don't need that! Please don't read this & think that I'm sitting here judging people with a lot of followers! That is SO not my point. There are a lot of bloggers out there that are totally reaching a lot of people with the love of Christ, a message of hope, awesome tutorials, answers to questions, inspiration, crafty goodness, etc. I think that's super! I know others are providing a "gathering place" of sorts, and I think that's super, too! I love blogs. I love reading them. I love "meeting" people through them. I feel like I've made some friends through this. I'm just saying that maybe mine isn't intended to be "successful", and I'm OK with that!

Alright, so there are my random ponderings about this little blog of mine! I hope you have a super day!!

I had no idea we started at almost the exact same time. First of all you DON'T want to do a week long poem because as I said in my first post it really is a pain! Also, funny enough last year this woman Becky was the only commenter and this year it looks like you are the lucky one. By the way I do appreciate your faithful comments and coincidentally I was going to talk about the EXACT SAME THING on Saturday!
