I’m about to embark on one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever done. And if you know me, you know that’s saying something. I take chances. I put myself out there. But not like this. Never before like this.
I blog all the time, and sometimes those blogs get pretty personal. Sometimes I blog to sell books (or at least try to!) but sometimes I blog in the name of therapy. As I’ve said, a blog which no one reads is called a diary. Well, sometimes you can pretend no one reads, and it works just as well. There is something fantastic about talking like no one is listening, and yet realizing that you really have no idea who may actually be hearing or reading every word you say. It’s scary, and somewhat dangerous, and I find it rather exhilarating.
Well, the exhilaration is about to go through the roof. Tomorrow, August 1, 2014, will be the beginning of The Year of Blogging Faithfully. The See Bethany Blog, as well as the Musings From Abby and Friends blog, will remain. The Musings blog is for all things Abby-related, the See Bethany Blog is all about the writing. So what is The Year of Blogging Faithfully? It’s about the journey as my family and I step out on faith. I’m going to be honest and open about our journey, and I’m excited to see what God is going to do. That’s what it’s about. Every single day, we are wondering if we are making the right decisions. Every single day, we wonder how we’re going to pay the bills. Every single day, we wonder if I should go back to work. But God has not said that I should. In fact, we believe He has said that I shouldn’t. That’s terrifying. We’re waiting for His guidance, and while we wait, we see Him doing miraculous things. Well, I need to share those things. I will blog every single day for a year, and I can’t wait to see what God is going to do.
The intimacy is what’s so scary. I’ve opened up my mind and creativity to you all already. I’ve even given you sneak peeks into my heart. But now I’m letting you into my home. My family. My faith. That doesn’t mean I’ll be airing my family’s dirty laundry – I don’t believe in that, but also we honestly don’t have all that much – but I am going to share our journey with you. And that makes me uncomfortable. But I have to. God is leading me to do it, and I would love if you would come along with me and see what God is going to do.
This year is going to change everything.
The Year of Blogging Faithfully will be available on WordPress and Blogger, and both sites give you the option of Following or Subscribing by e-mail. I hope you will. I can honestly say I have no idea what’s going to happen. But it’s going to be big.
