About 10 days ago, I wrote a post about my frustrations as a blogger. While blogging may look easy, it's actually one of the most challenging things that I've ever taken on. I wasn't even sure if I should continue. My reader base was very supportive and I thank you. I also prayed for a sign from God about whether or not this was a path that I should be walking.

Well, it wasn't just my readers who helped. Many other bloggers came forth to weigh in. They gave me words of encouragement and, more importantly, validated some of the things that I am doing. I was amazed at the caliber of folks that not only sent notes and tweets, but also spoke to me by phone. I am so grateful for them. One of them challenged me to something wayyy out of my comfort zone. I haven't quite done it, but I will. TODAY.

I think that God has spoken on it. I think that I should continue blogging. I think that I should also work hard at mastering the craft. I've come up with new topics and features. I can continue, at least for the time being. I feel excited, and also rejuvenated. Life is good!

Be a catalyst today. Give a word of encouragement, even where you think none is needed. You never know...

Your comments--priceless!

    I love your blogs. They are always so uplifting. When I wake up, I usually hop on the computer for a min., check my email and go to your blog. It always starts my day off in a positive way. Your blogs always seem to touch on thought provoking, sometimes humorous,topics. You are very talented...keep em coming!

    OK, this sounds good as long as you're getting enough rest physically, emotionally & spirituallt=y. Keep chugging away, finding the right balance can difficult. I have faith you will continue to grow.

    When you first said you were going to stop blogging I said

    "Please don't stop now - you have a place in my schedule with my morning coffee, and although you say you are tried, I believe that you will find the strength to carry through."

    I now must say that I am glad that you have had a change of heart and will continue to write TheTinyJEWELBOX blog for many years to come. I am truly looking forward to more to come.......You are very talented and your articles are varied so it's enjoyable.

    I must say that I must give you praise on your ability to make time to blog, twitter, facebook, raise a family, deal with your illnesses and still want a teacup dog....? My Lord give her your blessings and keep her blogging, twittering, facebooking, raising a family and dealing with her illnesses, and place a (Yorkie) on her pillow one nite she deserves it.

  7. Found you on SITS. Glad you decided to stick around:)
