BLOGGING

socnet-04

Those of us who strive to put out a daily blog may find it difficult to create something new and exciting.  We search the internet for trending news, popular topics, current events and many of us go to the manual for life, the Bible.  We can often get caught up in the numbers, the ratings, the comments and the followers.  It’s at times like that, which I must take a look at the reason I created my blog in the first place.

It’s always nice to be recognized for the work we do.  It spurs us on to do even better.  It’s a great motivator, but if it gets in the way of why we do it, then we must ask ourselves what our intention is.

I love displaying my husband’s art work.  I’m his biggest fan and his work often inspires words of poetry.  I imagine it’s like putting words to a piece of music.  The work speaks for itself, but sometimes the addition of words can make it come to life.

I enjoy talking about my family and the millions of goofy things that always seem to happen to us.  I suppose part of the goofiness comes from the goofy people themselves.  There always seems to be a good story there.

I sometimes write about the state of the world, our own country, our moral decline and the things that are wrong with us, but I truly believe in this country and know that the people are not all like those we see in the media.  I know there is depravity.  It makes me sick, but there is nothing I can do to change that, other than making sure that my own path is straight.  Expressing opinions can also be dangerous and invite criticism and I’m not real good with confrontation.

I love writing about God’s grace and acceptance of me, a sinner.  This great news is too wonderful to hide under a basket.  I realize it also comes with responsibility.  We must never be judgmental, yet we must stand up for our beliefs when necessary.

A writer takes risks every day.  This is our platform – our voice – our inner thoughts.  I pray that I can continue to tell my story until the ending of it – which will be just the beginning.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I can really relate to this feeling of needing to get back to the basics of why I started blogging to begin with. And it IS so easy to get caught up in the national hysteria of the decline of or country, isn’t it? I agree with you, there are more great people in this country than the media portrays. They would be out of a job I guess if they actually presented stories of us all getting along….;)
