1. Congratulations dear friend!

    I understand all of your points particularly the first two. We all have something to share or we would not be blogging but when the blog goes on for 10 minutes it’s difficult to stay and read it all.

    #2 took me some time to wrap my head around because as a Servant-Leader there are many who the Lord has permitted me to minister to in person but also through our Website and when I began blogging I was so surprised that many of those same people do not want to have anything to do with reading the blogs BUT they still email me and read anything I send out via the Website. It’s just preference I suppose so I had to say, Ok Lisa, just reach everyone in the avenues God has supplied and each one will come according to their need as you point them toward JESUS who is the One who meets the need.

    Bless you dear friend.

  2. Happy Birthday! Congratulations!

    I’m so glad I found this blog – I’ve been so blessed by it 🙂

    Here’s to many more years of insightful thoughts and writing,
    Kate 🙂

  3. I am SO glad that I was introduced to you and your blog. I look forward to every new post. You’re an amazing writer, and I’ve come to feel that I know you personally even though we have never met face to face. You have been given a gift from God and you’re using it SO well! Thank you, thank you , thank you for your blog!

  4. Congratulations on your first bloggerversary! I love your blog and your writing. But you are so right. I used to feel bad because my nonblogging friends only checked my blog once in a while. But I’m getting to understand some. And yes, short is better. I know sometimes I don’t read a post because I don’t have time and I love to follow many different blogs. But sometimes a post is well worth it and so I do sit and read. And speaking of that, I haven’t read your last post YET but I will. I want to read your story, especially since I’m getting to know you better. I’ve actually been praying for you so I want to know what you’re writing.

    Happy Birthday …you’re growing up!

  5. Happy Birthday to you, dear little blog….and many more!

    Thank you for sharing from your heart all of the inspiring words you have written…

  6. Happy birthday little blog. Mine is right on your heels — on Tuesday!

    Ha, I had to laugh when you said people who don’t blog really don’t want to read your blog. So true! I’ve given my url to my friends several times. lol Ok, so I get the hint!

    Take care!

  7. Sandy,

    I am new to blogging, and I SO appreciate your words of wisdom. It is quite overwhelming in the beginning. I love what you said about being smaller…when we start out we wonder will anyone stop by, will anyone read this. Then God leaves you a sweet message through one of His chilren that says He used you today!! What a blessing. Well, Sandy, please know, He used you today. :0)

    Thank you for these great words of encouragement!!



  8. Congratulations Sandy! Looks like we got some great ideas( or rather no idea what I was getting myself into) round about the same time. My website just turned One, and I’m such a proud Mama. However, I’m still getting the hang of the blogging thing and I’m learning tons from you. Thanks girl!

  9. Happy birthday, Sandyblog! I am so glad I got to meet you this year and hope to meet up again one day. You are a sweetheart.

    I totally get the my-friend-don’t-read-my-blog thing. That is so hurtful to me, but I’m trying . . . TRYING . . . to get over it. 🙁

  10. Dear George:

    I just want you to know I deleted your comment. It’s not that it was a mean comment, but honestly, I didn’t really understand it. And since I didn’t understand it, I didn’t want it to confuse my readers who are here to truly seek God and learn to hear His voice.

    If you want to e-mail me directly, feel free. Or leave your e-mail address somewhere so I can e-mail you.
