One year!

achievement

One year! I can hardly believe it. When I registered this blog a year ago I would never have thought I would be here. I have almost 80 followers which doesn’t seem like a lot but I didn’t think that people would want to hear what I had to say, especially because I was talking about God. My start was bumpy. I registered this site in June but I didn’t do my first post until October.  I was scared. I was following what God told me to do but I was moving really slow about it. I wanted it to be perfect, I wanted to have 10 posts before I went live. So many things now, I realize didn’t matter.

 

I write because it makes me feel good. I write because it helps me get all the things that are inside my head out and on to paper. When I write I feel closer to God. I started this blog because I know this crazy journey I have been on wasn’t just for me. I am happy that it has helped and inspired people. I am proud of myself because this blog has helped me more than it has probably helped anybody. Self examination and growth is hard. Like real hard. Putting the wild things you think on paper for people to judge is also hard. I never wanted to be judged by things I wrote because I probably already judged myself harder than any random person could. I know I could be doing things better, responding better, living better. I see people going through harder trials then me with a smile on their face every day.

I am working on it. I am proud of the woman I am becoming. I don’t know everything and I no longer feel like I have to pretend I do. That is a big deal. I am getting people to reflect on their behavior, which is great. It is the thing I want to do the most, is help people be the best versions of themselves.

Keep reading, keep following, keep supporting. I am so appreciative. I hope you are getting something out of these words. I am excited for what the next blogging year will bring.

Yours in writing,

Dominique

  1. Hi Dominique,
    First to say how I admired you for not shying away to use your blog to share your faith. In this time when most people have turned their backs on God, we need people like you who will be confident enough to let people know what God means to you.
    Congratulations for being 1 year blogging, 80 flowers is a lot you know you have 80 people who signed up to read your posts that is a lot and this community will be hearing of what God is doing in your life.
    I have been blogging for seven years now and have a small community who have loyally followed my blog and I thank God for each one of them. Well done you have achieved a lot in a year.

    • Hi! Thank you so much. Your kind words, reading my post and taking the time to comment mean a lot to me. I certainly don’t mean to diminish my following, I guess I am just comparing my followers to other bloggers who have 100s or 1000s of followers. I am happy if even one person reads what I have to say. Blogging for seven years is such an accomplishment and I hope to be there one day. I trust God will do with this blog what He sees fit and I am just here to be a vessel.
