Today I'm participating in a new series:  Things I Love Thursday, hosted over at The Diaper Diaries.   So come along for the ride as each week I feature something I love...  

I must say, today - I really love blogging.  Fellow bloggers.  The 'blogosphere'.  I'm coming up on my own one-year blogging anniversary, and while I am still pretty green at this, I'm starting to find my way.  I've been so blessed by all of the different blogs I've come across, one usually leading me to another, to another, and so on.  (It's very easy to lose track of where you started!)  I've found lots of helpful tips, inspiration, and words of encouragement on lots of different topics ranging from blogging to motherhood to cooking to faith and more.  And I'm developing new friendships, albeit virtual!  Perhaps virtual in person, that is, but very present and real in spirit.  While it can sometimes be a distraction and source of social disconnection, this technology/internet/blogosphere can also really make this big world a smaller place and lend unexpected blessings every once and awhile.  And I'm just thankful for the opportunity to share my own thoughts and encouragements here with others as they have shared and blessed me!   

"So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it. The way He wants you to live."  1 Thessalonians 5: 11, MSG

I agree completely!

My husband and I were talking last night about how technology and the internet have changed the way we live. In some ways it does take us away from things that are more important. But I've found some wonderful friends through blogging, and I wouldn't want to change that.

I love the virtual friendships we can develop through blogging, too. I've had the opportunity to meet 3 or 4 of my virtual friends/acquaintacnces in person, and that is super fun.

God bless you in your blogging, Kristi!
