5,000 Thank Yous!

Traci

thank you
Starting a blog has been a challenging and humbling experience. I published my first post in September of 2013. After more than a year of consideration and much gentle persuasion by my husband, I took the plunge. This week the blog has reached 5,000 views and if I could I would send out 5,000 thank-yous!
5,000 views later I am so grateful for the journey, but I really hesitated to begin a blog . . .
First, I'm not a writer. (Not sure I can still say that since I have now written more than 45 posts.) However, if blogging were purely about eloquence I'm not sure anyone would follow this blog. I love reading eloquent blogs, but that isn't me. This blog is an avenue to share my story in my words and with my personality.
(Note: I am super grateful for my friend, Sharilyn, who graciously edits this blog so you don't have to read a constant flow of sentences ending in prepositional phrases!)
Secondly, there is a vulnerability and humbleness in blogging. After all, I am placing my mistakes, challenges, and personal thoughts in a post and inviting others to read, contemplate, and give feedback. I have grown in this area and although I desire positive feedback from my readers, the learning process I am going through is worth putting myself out there in the open.
Here is my realization:  blogging is just one way to express my journey and desire to live an extraordinary life. It is not an isolated experience - it is my life. I share my life, journey, and experiences through Facebook, church small group, business, ministry, and blogging. It is about connecting, inspiring, challenging, and moving people (including myself) toward a more extraordinary life.
Get connected - share your life with others. Be inspired and inspire others. Embrace challenge. Allow yourself to be moved. The extraordinary life is worth it!
Be extraordinary!
