Today, My Overflowing Cup is officially one year old!
In celebration, I’d thought I’d share a little about what the life of a blogger looks like.
Before I do, however, I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of you who have offered your support and assistance.
Thank you for encouraging me to have the faith and bravery to begin this endeavor.
Thank you for those who have helped me in practical ways (like creating images, lending me your camera, and finding photo props for me!)
Thank you, most of all, for praying for this little ministry. My prayer is that all that is said and done on this blog would encourage my readers while bringing all of the glory to God alone.
Your love and support mean more to me than I can even begin to express. Please know that you are all in my prayers.
Before I started this blog, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. (Neither did my family!)
And yet, this has been a project we have all come to love deeply.
That being said, I have discovered a few things unique to the blogger’s life. I hope you find these as interesting to read about as we do to live.
1. If it’s your birthday, you can expect a blog post rather than a gift.
2. I reserve the right to take your food outside and photograph it before you are allowed to consume it.
3. I hear this often, “This is really good. You’re putting this recipe on the blog, right?”
4. My son knows that I’m going to be borrowing his camera
about a zillion times several times a week.
5. We also may be late because I may or may not have pulled the car over 127 times on the way to shoot a picture of something beautiful.
6. My husband is not surprised when he wakes up at 1:30 in the morning to find me no longer in bed but on the couch typing. And then again at 3 am.
7. He is also prepared to quickly capture a thought for me as they seem to come while I am in the shower or picking meat off the bones of a chicken.
8. Everything is looked at through the lens of, “Can I write a blog post about that?”
9. I’ve learned never to be without pencil and paper because no, I won’t remember that when I get home or in the morning.
10. I may set out to mop the kitchen floor or make dinner, but I might also have my mind flooded with words that must be captured via my keyboard. Disclaimer: I can no longer guarantee any task to be completed on time. Thank you for your patience.
Thank you, again, my dear readers for your love and support. Here’s to another great year!
