I was debating what to do to celebrate this milestone. A giveaway? Maybe. Maybe. Some sort of party was surely in order. But...what?
Honestly, as I sit down to write this, I'm still not sure. But I figured I'd start with a few things I've learned through blogging.
* It's a great way to make friends. Some of you readers I would never know if not for blogs, but I'm so, so glad I do!
* I like having a venue for my thoughts. I'm not exactly a record-setting blogger with a devoted throng of tens of thousands who come by to see my wisdom, LOL, but I've worked through a lot of faith issues on here. That's not to be disdained.
* Consistency is definitely key. So even though I've gone down to three days a week from my at-first five, I do try to keep those days consistent. And when I miss one, I notice.
* God can use blogs in a big way. Which sounds funny, LOL. But seriously. I couldn't tell you how many times a blog reader has left a comment that just brightened my day and kept me going. And I love those days when I get a note, either in comments or email, saying my post was just for a particular person that day. Those are always, "Wow, God. Thanks." moments.
And so, I'd like to thank you all today. You who comment so faithfully, you who read but don't often choose to interact like that. You who insist I keep blogging when some days I wonder if the blogosphere really needs one more voice.
So I'm going to offer one of my books to someone. Not gonna make it fancy--two ways to enter, and one of them is tell me what you'd like if you win. =) (A Stray Drop of Blood, Jewel of Persia, Love Finds You in Annapolis, Ring of Secrets, Whispers from the Shadows, or Circle of Spies)
