WHY DO YOU BLOG? -- July Blog Challenge #bloggingthroughJuly #summerchallenge

It's hard to believe that today ends the month of July.  Wow!  Can you believe we've blogged through the entire month together?  I've enjoyed the challenge and have learned a few things about myself.  How about you?

The final topic for the July Blog Challenge is "Why do you blog?" and I can't wait to read all of your posts.  Why do I blog?  To be honest, I began blogging so that I could try out for the Schoolhouse Review Crew.  My dear friend was a member of the Review Crew and shared that she thought I would enjoy it, too.  My very first blog post EVER was a mock review of a spelling curriculum that we had been using for years.  What a strange way to start a blog.  I've made some of the greatest friends ever through the Crew.  It has blessed me in more ways than I ever imagined.

My second blog post was titled "Hello World" and it was written as we celebrated Claire's Sweet Sixteen way back in 2010.  Since that time, I have posted 775 different snippets of life and it's kind of neat to read back through some of them.  I've been reading what I wrote and trying to catch a glimpse of my heart during those times.

I have changed a lot in how and what I share.  I have grown quite a bit.  I'm still not the blogger I want to be.  I have many friends who write beautiful words that fill me with a sense of peace and I long to be that blogger.  I don't know if I share enough or too much or if I'm as transparent as I should be.  I pray, though, that the words that flow off of my fingertips will be words that lift up and encourage and point others to CHRIST.

I share recipes and pictures and traditions and life through my blog and I hope that one day my children will read it and remember.  When I was younger, I wrote all of my thoughts and ideas into a journal and hid it away for my eyes only.  Now, I type my thoughts and dreams and ideas for all the world to see onto a little spot called This Day Has Great Potential.  It may not be the biggest or the best, but it's my little corner of the world where I can share my heart.

Thank you for reading and visiting and commenting and sharing life with me.  Thank you for sticking with me until the very end of July.  Thank you for being my friends and honoring me with your friendship.

This day really does have great potential!
