One Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway - DAY THREE

My Freshly Brewed Life :: One Year Blog Anniversary and Week of Giveaways
Woo Hoo!  I cannot tell you ladies how much fun I am having at my own party.  I wish I could keep it going another week or so, but then I'd have to run out and get more prizes.  Well, it's a good excuse to have another party soon, right?

Thank you all so much for responding to the question of the day yesterday.  I found out so much about your personality in just one word!  Some of you have inquired about how I would describe myself in just one word.  I've been thinking about it all day.  I did not realize how hard this would hard that some of you just couldn't do it!  I would describe myself as:  LOVER!  I am a lover of my Jesus, the sole source of my strength, joy and peace; a lover of my family, the people who, next to God, that I would rather spend all of my time with; a lover of my girlfriends, those who walk beside me in this life and support and encourage me, and make me laugh; and a lover of, well COFFEE of course!  If you know me at all you will know that I absolutely cannot function without my coffee.  And, I don't make my own. I make horrible coffee. So I break the bank to get the good stuff! 

I wanted to share some of the things I've learned about blogging along the way:
  • I've learned how important it is to just be myself.  This is hard sometimes.  I often compare myself to others and wonder if what I have to offer is worthy of reading.  But I have found that if I stay true to myself, and what God has called me to do, then I will be successful.  I have had the greatest success in finding friends like you along the path.
  • I've learned that it really doesn't matter how many followers I have.  Neither does it matter how many comments I receive, or whether someone recently unsubscribed from my blog.  I do not write to gain followers.  I write to uplift and encourage women in their journey with the Lord.  That's really all that matters.  
  • I've learned that I could probably add well over 1,000 blogs in my Google Reader.  There are so many fantastic blogs out there and yes, I read many.  I've learned that it's okay that I don't read them all every day.  I've learned that it's important though to leave comments as often as I can, to encourage other bloggers, and to build relationship with them.  I've learned that I cannot be offended if someone does not comment.  We all lead busy lives and we must lead one another with grace.
  • I've learned that I will have uninspired days.  There are days when there is absolutely nothing happening in my life that anyone would want to read about.  It's okay that I don't post every day. Life happens and this is the way it is.
I've learned so much more, but now it's time for the Question of the Day:

What is one thing that you've learned through blogging that you
could pass on to others?

I am looking forward to tomorrow!
