Just over a week ago I wrote a post about trying to find my way in this blogging world. I did, unfortunately, pick a pretty bad weekend to try and figure it out. Not only was it Father’s day that Sunday, it was also my husband’s birthday on Monday. The weekend went by in a blur. However in the quiet moments of those days (and the days since) I have been asking God where He would have me to go.
Also unfortunate was the lack of a neon sign that I was hoping for. I did get some direction, even if it was unclear and wanted to let you know about it. After all, you are my readers, and I want your input.
I have decided that although created by myself, my blog has become a ‘platform’ of sorts. No, I don’t get thousands of hits a day. And, I’m okay with that. I do get at least one. That one matters to me. Maybe that one or two needs to hear what God has laid on my heart. Or not. Hopefully you will come back and see what else I have to say!
I am going to try hard at creating a schedule for myself. I tend to get a lot of post ideas, and get post happy, to have nothing to say the next week. With that, I’m going to try to post 3 days a week, per the leading of the Holy Spirit. I don’t really like to write if I don’t really have much to say.
Also, when I had a blog make-over due to losing my blog, I wrote up a Missions Statement. I have read over that a few times in the past week and really thought about whether or not I am actually accomplishing those goals. I will not be hosting link-ups at this time as that felt burdensome and unproductive. That is something I am going to leave to other bloggers.
I believe that God has grown my blog. I believe it has become my ‘creative outlet’ in which I can reach out to other women. Other women who I wouldn’t otherwise be able to encourage and challenge. I am thankful that I started this blog and have no regrets. However, I also realize that time management is not my strong point, hence, the coming schedule. Discipline is going to be crucial for me in the days to come. After all, before blogging comes my God and my Family.
Thus, The Imperfect Housewife will continue and press on. I pray that God would use this blog to reach out to you, to speak Truth into your life, to encourage you in the daily grind of Motherhood, and to make you hunger and thirst after righteousness. I desire that this blog would make you dig deeper into the Word of God, to let you know that you are not alone in life as a Mom, to provide you with tools and resources that will help make life just a little bit easier!
Thank you for honoring me with your presence. Thank you for coming back to read my blog when I post. Thank you for leaving comments here or on my Facebook page. Thank you for being you! I write because I love it, but I also write because I know (no matter how few!) that there are others out there reading.
A big hug from me to you!
I would love to be friends!
