When we decided to create a blog about our high-risk “triplet turned quadruplet” pregnancy, we had no idea that “strangers” would be reading. We had no intentions of generating revenue through ads to help pay for groceries. We had little to no knowledge of how to upload videos, how to track visitors, or how to design a blog header….we just wanted to better communicate and request prayer from our family and close friends.
Lo and Behold Here We Are…3 Years Into This Crazy Little Thing Called Blog.
And we have much to show for it: precious friendships, a written collection of memories, a way to give back through our NICU Survival Kits, and countless comments of encouragement along the way.
Blogging has certainly been a blessing to us, and I hope we can continue to be a blessing to others.
The blogging gurus of #savvyblogging are encouraging bloggers to have a plan of action for the New Year. Here’s what I have for my blogging goals for 2010 so far…
(Hang tight, I want YOUR input too!)
~ Striking a healthy balance between blogging and other responsibilities
~ Grow our giving through our NICU Survival Kits project to support families experiencing the uncertainties of the NICU
~ Growing our blog in readership in order to connect to others and to financially contribute to our family during this season of unemployment
~ Gaining boldness in communicating my faith and sharing God’s incredible mercy and grace in our lives
~ Continuing to build relationships and partnerships between products and companies that have genuinely made our lives better, and passing along the benefits to you
~ Connecting to you the reader better through vlogging, responding to comments, visiting your blogs, conversations on twitter, and listening to your input
Now it’s YOUR turn! I’ve created a little questionnaire to help collect your valuable suggestions, ideas, and feedback.
