3rd month of concentrated, deliberate blogging, and I’ve lost a bit of momentum. This month has been crazy busy (at work), and Kim and I have definitely dipped into the valleys, but also climbed to the highest peaks. To say this month had it’s ups and downs would be an understatement.
The awesome thing is, we’ve definitely camped out at the peak a little longer than our trip in the valley, and I can’t say that it was without God. He has definitely had a HUGE hand in the events that transpired, even just in the past 2 weeks!
Before I move on to , to make a long story short Kim had lost a pretty cushy gig with a certain company who may or may not rhyme with Bank of Ashmerica. I truly believe that this happened only to clear her schedule to work with this incredible company. In her first week, she absolutely loves it. I love that she loves it, it’s incredibly awesome.
I said “Meh” in the headline, because as far as the blog goes, I really felt like I lost a little momentum mid-March, only to pick up towards the end. I just really didn’t feel like writing, or even thinking or looking at the goals. Because of this, my goal list was not attended to as much as I would have liked.
Goals accomplished, month #3
1) Publish at least 3 well-written posts a week.
9) Have 100 subscribers
Um, almost doubled January and February’s numbers, sitting up at 35 through feedburner. Crazy! Thanks mom and dad for getting the cousins on board!
10) Respond to as many, if not all of your comments, all 5 to 10′s of you.
Interestingly enough, after talking with Alece over at Grit & Glory, I may dedicate April to a new approach to responding to comments. We’ll see, I still haven’t decided yet but I will not deter from responding to each and every comment. I just may do it a bit differently.
11) Influence at least 1 person to start blogging.
Ok this one really doesn’t count (yet), so we’ll see where this goes. I literally got this message on facebook as I’m writing out this review, but I think it’s pretty awesome:
Ok so maybe March wasn’t as “Meh” as I thought it was, but how about new goals?
Here’s a goal that I added:
16) Start Seminary
Top 5 Posts of March:
Because this is March, which includes International Women’s day, and since I’ve not mentioned any Women bloggers yet, here are some awesome women y’all should read:
I’ve already mentioned her, but Alece over at Grit & Glory is super creative (see One Word 2011)and writes some amazing, and engaging stuff. She shows a genuine passion in connecting with her community.
Keri over at Pop Parables, has a very unique way of “finding God in the parables of pop culture.” What’s the most common theme among “Pop?” Yeah, she has a whole series dedicated to it. Go check it out. Do it.
