Today is my 200th blog post since my first post on May 7, 2010. I had planned to start a blog shortly after my daughter’s birth in June 2009, but in the early months of motherhood it slipped my mind. Starting a blog was one of my 2010 New Year’s Resolutions. There have been periods of embarrassingly few posts, and times when I posted almost daily. I weaned my daughter, lost my great grandmother, suffered a miscarriage, got pregnant again, developed gestational diabetes, and published my first book; sharing about all of it on this blog.

There have been times when I wondered if my small voice even mattered. But I was encouraged yesterday by Lisa-Jo Baker’s post.

I have a unique gift to offer in my words. I have developed a small community of blogging compatriots who I support. I’ve never met these women face to face but I think and pray for them often.  So I dedicate this post to all of the newbie and would-be bloggers out there. Take the plunge. Share your heart, your thoughts and your voice. The size of your audience doesn’t matter as much as the impact you have on those you reach.
