First Blog Ever.

I sort of feel like I am giving in. For some unknown reason I have avoided blogging for quite a while. I guess I wasn't sure anyone would want to read it if I did start one. Who the heck cares? :) I also sort of resent the shift from paper to monitor. In 50 years, this blog will be long forgotten, but my hand written notes (unless someone chunks it!) at least have the potential for still being around. Especially if I become some really important person like Secretary of State or something! Funny! Really, this morning as I was journaling in my antiquated leather journal with a writing instrument filled with ink called a pen (for those who haven't used one for some time), I decided that I wanted to share what God is teaching me. This way, if someone is interested they can read it and we can Praise God together and if they don't want to read it, they don't have to click on my little link! Anyway, not all posts will be deep in nature, at least I don't think they will. Please comment if you feel like it! All of you bloggers, give me your thoughts on why you blog. I am more than curious, and I may just need the encouragement!

Welcome to the blogosphere, Jenny!

Regarding journaling vs blogging, why not do both? The journaling is where you work out stuff just for yourself, whereas the blog is the public face you present, sharing what items you feel led to from your journaling.

Besides, I think it would be fun to read your take on things, vs Brando's, after you guys move to Guatemala.

Thanks so much for the input! I am also looking forward to it. Let me know if you get bored! :)

I love getting to know other people through their blogs. I feel like I know them better and understand how they think. It's also great self-help for me! (Cheaper than a therapist!)

Blog on, Jenny!

Lindsay talked me into it. I talked Mike into it. I started blogging as a way to exercise neglected writing muscles, but it's ended up being more than that. It's sometimes cathartic, sometimes just a way to communicate with people I don't see very much. Schweers' mom is right, it's a great way to get to know people. I've connected with people I never would've known were standing right beside me at CBC.

You and I know each other, but not all that well. I can't wait to read your posts and get know you even better!
