Happy New Year!
Kent & I want to wish all of you out there a very Happy New Year with a healthy new outlook on your life! 2009 brought many new experiences: good and bad, happiness and sadness, new and renewed friendships, hurts and grace, diet failures and fitness achievements. Many things have happened: new adventures, closer relationships, hard work, relaxation, stress, and peace. As with everyone, we all experience things, people, and events which come and go in our lives. We all have resolutions...I mean...things that need changing about ourselves, an ability to accept the undeserved, and an outlook as a child. But I guess the best thing of it all is that there is always newness, excitement and love. As you enter this new year, we pray that you will look at circumstances in the eyes of understanding, difficult people with open arms and God as your Best Friend. Love as you have been loved, forgive as you have been forgiven and seek to understand as you have been understood. May you encounter everyone with one of your beautiful smiles!
Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
