2-Month Blogging Update

cropped-lavanda-michelle.jpgI published my first Blog on August 19, 2017. It was a short introduction to me. I was so nervous because all I knew was journaling. It was my very own self-therapy. It has always been effective and it only cost me a journal and some ink. I write about everything. Love, heartache and pain, betrayal and intimacy, motherhood and marriage, my adventures, my worries, and the list could go on. Nothing is off limits when I write… prayers, poems, or an open letter to a loved one. It’s a great way for me to express myself.

One day, a friend of mine was going through a tough time. I told her that I wanted to share something with her and just see if it would help. I shared a story similar to hers. She was surprised by an unplanned pregnancy. After reading my journal, she felt better. Over the years I encountered many others who needed advice. When I had a similar story, I would just go to my journal and share and it was helping. After a few years of doing this, my friend suggested I do a blog and that maybe I can help more people by sharing my journey.

After considering it for a while, I decided to take on this new challenge. Then I was faced with the dilemma of over vs under-sharing. After weeks and weeks of discussing it with my husband, I was able to find a happy medium. I would go through my journal and find an article about me that could help the people in my life. Those are the ones I would share with. Of course, let my hubby do a quick edit, and get his opinion as well.

Now it’s two months later and I am amazed by the response from my readers and the blogging community itself. My blogs have helped people and allowed them to reflect on their own lives. At times, I find myself in tears as I read through the comments. I’m constantly wowed at how my stories have touched people all around the world. It’s so awesome!

I get these constant emails about how many people I have reached so I decided to do a blogging update and share my updates with you all today in case anyone missed out.
