1. Yes to all this! I would never have thought of blogging as a viable option for me–and if I can handle the techy side of things, ANYONE can! One of the sweetest surprises has been the blessing of community among bloggers and the faithful love of my readers.

    1. Yes I agree!! The wonderful community of fellow bloggers has been such a huge blessing to me! And the readers…oh I don’t even have words to describe the joy I feel reading their heartfelt comments. It is such a blessing!

  2. This post is spot-on! I have seen so many benefits of starting my blog over a year ago, especially the encouraging community with fellow bloggers. Thanks for sharing!

  3. One of the things that surprised me most about blogging was the many generous and kind bloggers I met. I had no idea blogging was such a community-oriented activity. I have not been blogging very long (9 months), and I feel like I am still trying to find my voice. I didn’t set out to be a Christian blogger; I thought my blogs would be more running-focused, but that is just what sort of evolved.

    1. Yes it surprised me as well. There are so many wonderful, supportive bloggers out there. I have another post about blogging coming out tomorrow that talks a little about finding your voice as well!

  4. I’ve been a blogger for 15 years but I just started a Christian blog a few years ago and I don’t post regularly yet. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start one because I felt I didn’t know enough about the topic. But then I realized that I would learn as I wrote, as you said. Plus sharing my thoughts as a NEW Christian gives another viewpoint that those who were born Christian might not have thought of.

    1. You are absolutely right!! No matter the topic, you have experiences and insights someone else may not have!! Remember…an audience of one! Write for God but also write for that one person who may need to hear what you have to say!!

  5. I have been blogging since March, very randomly. I would love to become more active in my blogging, and I think being part of this site will help me do so.

    1. That is awesome Joanna!! I have two more posts on blogging coming out…one on Thursday and another on Friday so stop on by!!

  6. Thanks for the encouragement to blog! It’s definitely been a game-changer for me. I love the time alone to think and process my circumstances and then to interact with community.

  7. Thanks for the post and encouragement. Writing a Christian blog definitely has its benefits and can allow you to get your message and your thoughts out there to a wider audience. It is hard going though. Because it’s a kingdom work, Christian writers are probably more under attack from the enemy than other bloggers out there and can suffer from discouragement and often the desire to throw in the towel. I know I certain have felt that way many times. I have to remember that if this is the case, then it means that my posts are having some effect and advancing the kingdom.

    I would love to have a greater reach, but striving for that in my own strength means I’m not trusting in God but only in my own resources.

    1. I totally agree with you Robert. I cannot tell you how many times I have come under attack and wanted to just stop blogging. But you are right where God wants you and those attacks are evidence of that. What you are doing is amazing and God will definitely advance your reach! I am happy to help you in any way as well! I have a post coming out tomorrow that centers on blog promotion so maybe there is a tip or two in there that can help with some promotional ideas!

  8. Christian blogging has been such a wonderful ministry for and to me. I am so grateful for the community I’ve developed.

    1. Yes!! As a Christian blogger we don’t only get the opportunity to minister…we get to be ministered to!! Thanks Bailey!
