How I'm going to blog.

Where am I going with this blog? Where have I been?

My sister told me that nobody cares about a house tour and I needed to blog more about Jesus and Jonathan's health.

My friends and I have discussed that we like to read blogs that show how people do things and live their life.

The internet says that blogs should have a niche and should concentrate only on that topic. The blog should show expertise in one area of life. Showcase your one talent.

Mary Bost says to all of this:
a. Jesus tells me when and what to write. He puts topics on my heart and then He sits at the computer and helps me write about him and his grace. I wish I could write about him every day- I'm a slow learner. It takes a while to listen and comprehend what he is telling me and then to communicate it into a blog post.

b. If I only wrote about Jonathan's health it would read- Well, Jonathan still has cancer, not as much cancer as he started out with but it's still there....

2. I actually started reading blogs to see how people lived life. My friends and I discussed this topic earlier in the week and we learned that each of us does everything different: shaving, cooking, laundry, parenting, discipline, washing of the bras, cleaning, and more.  How can people who get along do everything differently? I loved knowing our differences and how we each did life and everyday tasks.

3. Having a niche. I'm not good at anything. I'm one of those that knows a little about a lot. I'm not focused on one area. Because that is boring and limiting.

So, with all of this:
I am going to blog about Jesus and Jonathan's health when applicable. I am going to blog our every day and how I do life. I am going to choose my niche as LIFE, motherhood, and living. And I am going to continue to document our happenings as a scrapbook for my kids and an online journal for myself.

Thank you for everyone who follows our journey and props to those who have been reading for the past 8 years. Yes, 8 years! I started when Lucy was 3 months old and I love being able to reference the blog as I recall a memory!

God is bigger than this and Jesus Can fix-it.
