One year ago, I sat in bed with a horrible stomach ache and nothing to do. I thought, “I know, I’ll update my blog!” But my old blog had somehow locked me out, making it impossible for me to write any new posts. So I thought, “I know, I’ll create a whole new blog!” I loved my friend Emily’s wordpress blog, so I asked her how to set one up. A few hours later, Hopewriter blog was born!
At the time, setting up a new blog was really just a way for me to pass time. I had not been a very good blogger with my old blog, and didn’t expect anything to change just because I set up a new one. But thanks to the overwhelming support I’ve received from all of you awesome readers, I was challenged to step up and become a more thoughtful, faithful blogger. Never in my wildest dreams would I have supposed that sixty-three people would care to read what I have to say. I want to say “Thank you!” to everyone who has shown an interest in my Hopewriter blog! You have no idea how excited I still get every time I read a new comment, or see that someone has liked one of my posts. I am fully aware that I am still a very novice blogger, and have tons to learn. But by God’s grace, lots of practice, and your support and interest, I’ve grown in leaps and bounds in just one year. I can’t wait to see what this next year of blogging holds!
Thank you all for reading!!!
