For Today... Monday, December 7th
Outside my window... a cool bright day.
I am thinking... of what I read over at Peggy's blog, The Simple Woman's Blog. She feels blogging is dead because of so little response in the form of comments in the recent month (although her blog does generate thousands of page views a month).
I understand how she feels. It can be discouraging to write your heart out and get so little feedback. Should a blogger be content with page views?
It's funny this would come up today because I felt impressed by the Lord during some prayer time this weekend that I should make an effort to encourage my fellow bloggers by dropping by their sites everyday and making a point of commenting. I already do try to comment but I am going to be more diligent.
We need everyone's story. I know I can't do it all, but if everyone would take just a minute to leave feedback, think how encouraged the blogging community would be.
I am thankful...for bloggers. I love reading the different perspectives and sharing life with other bloggers. I have learned so much and been uplifted by so many great bloggers whether it is seeing the crafty ideas and recipes they share, learning organizational tips or family advice, or hearing about their Christian walk.
I'm especially thankful for those who host link-ups and provide a platform for me to share my writing.
I am wearing... a black and teal houndstooth tunic and black jeggings and boots.
I am creating... a list of bloggers to encourage.
I am reading... Jefferson Bethke's "It's Not What You Think." This comes highly recommended by my adult daughter.
In my kitchen... there if beef stew in the crockpot for tonight's dinner! Yum!
A favorite quote for today...
"You don't think Jesus is your everything - until you have nothing but Jesus." - Ann Voskamp, writing in the forward of Jefferson Bethke's book, "It's Not What You Think."
A peek into one of my days... something I look at every day ... the bookshelves in my home office:
One of my favorite things... animal prints! (I guess you could guess that ...)
The daybook is a concept created by Peggy Hostetler. You can link up your own daybook at her site, "The Simple Woman's Daybook."
