Over the past 5 years, I have sat down and tried to start a blog several times. At first it was a blog about running, then it shifted to a blog about nutrition, and then somewhere in there I thought I should just blog about my life. Five years later I finally feel like I have found the right topic. A blog, which I am sure will be sprinkled with random life at times, but that mostly focuses on my faith journey and the ups and downs that it brings.
The one thing that feels different about this fourth attempt is that for once I am not heavily focused on how popular I can be in the blogging world; whether or not I am “good enough” to attract crazy amounts of readers or “talented enough” to make my site look pretty and appealing to anyone who stops by. To be honest, I am not even sure how one goes about getting anyone at all to read their blog.
I want this space to be therapeutic; a space where I can be raw and honest. I want my words to speak the truth. I feel great relief knowing that I do not have to write a certain way, talk about certain topics, or present myself in a perfect light; that is certainly NOT the case!
So although it took 5 years to finally realize it, blogging is not about the amount of people I can attract. I have an audience of One: Jesus Christ. And if it happens that He uses me through this blog, then AMEN to that.
