Well, I’m now nearly three weeks into this little experiment called blogging and after recovering from the initial panic that hit me immediately after I clicked the “publish” button, I’d like to think that things are going well. Namely, I haven’t lost my mind, my children are still dressed and fed, and my husband continues to be my number one cheerleader.
But there are a few things I need your help with. So here we go:
1.Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you all for reading along. The comments and notes of support have been overwhelming—just what I needed to fight back my secret doubts and persistent fears.
2. My utmost apologies to those of you who subscribed on your feed reader only to have it update multiple times a day. I’m still getting the hang of this and have had to do several edits. *sigh* Any suggestions appreciated.
3. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for reading along.
4. Over the next several weeks, I hope to mix things up a bit here. First, I’ve got several fabulous people I’d love to introduce you to. One goal of mine is to use this blog to highlight individuals who are using their gifts to serve others. Also, I hope to do some quick reviews of books that I’ve found helpful or inspiring. So keep your eyes open and make sure you tell me what you think about the changes.
5. Have I said thank you yet? No? Well, THANK YOU!!!
6. Finally, I’m having a bit of a dilemma regarding virtual etiquette and need your advice. I’m trying to avoid becoming the inspiration for letters like the one below:
Dear Miss Manners,
I have a “friend” on Facebook who consistently clogs my news feed with links to her blog. And while I understand that SHE finds her insights brilliant and life-altering, I don’t. However, I don’t want to lose her as a friend because I really need her help to get some kangaroos for Gardens of Time. What should I do?

So what do you think? Is it bad form to link to my FB profile every time I have a new post? Does it come across as self-absorbed or do you find it helpful?
Now it’s your turn to do a little writing. Please leave your feedback, comments, critiques, suggestions, concerns, and observations about the last three weeks below. I’d love to know what you’re all thinking and once again, thank you for reading along!
