Keep Going

Keep-Going-Sparkles-by-Ashlee.jpg

This post, truly, is kind of going to be a bunch of random ramblings. I've got a whole list of blog posts I could write, but now none of them seem fun to write at the time. I haven't blogged in forever, and I don't know why. 

Maybe some of my responses *or excuses* are I'm too busy, I don't know what to write about, or I don't have any readers.

I'm not busy. I have plenty of time each night to write a post, and I have a whole list of posts to write. Maybe I just need to break it down, plan them out, and make them more interesting to myself. And, I do have readers *Hi family! And while we're at it, you know how you guys always say you want my writing to reach people? 99% of bloggers recommend Twitter and say it is the best social media platform to make your posts go viral...!*

It doesn't matter how many readers you have. Well, it kind of does to me, and I'm sure it would you too...but it doesn't change the fact that you might have a great blog with great content, and some people just can't find it that easily. *Ahem! TWITTER IS CALLING MY NAME!!* Or, maybe it just needs to be linked a few more places. Or, maybe you just need to find the right people. My point in saying this is get a Twitter - wait, no. My point in saying this is don't be discouraged if you don't have a lot of readers right away. Good things take time, and God has a plan for your blog. Don't stop writing EVER...just because you feel it's not being noticed. I don't know why I haven't blogged lately. I honestly think for me it's because I'm so sick of staring at that document I'm ready to light my computer on fire, and I'm gonna change that. Maybe I'll just trash the whole thing and start fresh. Do what works for you, but don't stop writing. 

Nothing good in life comes with the blink of an eye. It takes work, and it takes patience. I've learned this a lot with my book. Keep having faith, keep blogging, and keep blogging. Your time will come. How do I know? Well that's easy.

The Jeremiah one is great, but I'm really starting to love this verse too. It's a reminder that yes, God does have plans for us, we need to be patient & trust Him. Keep blogging, maybe you can join Twitter at least, and put the definition of having faith to use.
