Wow. It has been two years since I joined Homeschoolblogger. I have made so many wonderful friends here and it really has changed my life. The support of fellow homeschoolers and the opportunities to expand my world are priceless.
When I first began blogging I had no idea even what blogging was and why anyone would do it. Two years later I can’t imagine it not being part of life. Where else can you join people of like minds with such fun meme’s as Blogger Friend School and Homeschool Memoirs, not to forget the on hiatus Sew Crafty Fridayand Flashback Friday posts hosted by Kellieann. The tags, the quizzes, the contests, and the other fun bloggy things have added to the adventure. I have learned HTML to play around with the template and have even become employed due to my wonderful friendship with my best blogger friend Heidi. I owe a lot to this treasured friend. She encouraged me (and still does) to put my e-books up for saleand was responsible for recommending me to TOS. I don’t know if any of those things would have ever happened if I had not joined the blogging world.
My favorite thing to do when I can find the time is to catch up with all my blogger friends. One of the benefits of blogging is that I get to see how others combine homeschool and everyday life. There is such a connection knowing that everyone has their own style and way to teach their children. The sharing of ideas and what works for each family is shear inspiration. Reading first-hand how God moves in people lives lends itself to Spiritual encouragement. It so amazes me how God uses everything to bring glory to Him.
I know that the past few months have been trying for so many bloggers, including myself, but I desire to continue on this path and to grow more friendships and bonds with those out there. I pray that those who begin their own blogging adventures will reap the same benefits that I have over the past few years.
