When I first started blogging, I didn't realize how many Godly, encouraging mom and/or wife bloggers there were out there. I enthusiastically started publicly following any that I came across that I even remotely identified with. ; ) Then, once I realized how many of us are around, I narrowed my following list to blogs I especially liked. Now it's time to make another change.
As the number of blogs I like has grown, I've decided to only follow anonymously. Even if you are my friends, it's a big thing to publicly say, "Yes, I endorse this person, I am their follower." I really like Blogger's following options, and I love being updated when you post new notes, recipes, thoughts, etc. It's just that in re-evaluating, I would rather do it anonymously.
So, if I have disappeared from your list of followers, don't worry. I'm still there. I'll still be reading and commenting. And I'll still enjoying your blogs.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to blog. To pray for others, to encourage others, to be encouraged, to have a network of friends who are in one way or another waking down the same path I am. I feel like God has a ministry for me to fill though blogging. I just want to be careful about my choices, and for now, at least, I think the best choice is to follow anonymously.
