It's not about me.

I write for me. It's an outlet.

I write about the topics that are on my heart.

I hope you read my posts. Like them. Relate to them.

I hope you comment, come back and read more, and generally like my blog.

I care if it's a nice place to visit and paid a blog designer to make it pretty.

I love to see a new follower.

I'm not counting numbers, but it's a compliment if you clicked follow on GFC.

Thanks!

BUT...

It's not about me!

Blogging isn't just about writing and waiting.

It's about connecting with others. My writing here is only one of the ways I do that.

The magic of blogging happens when I visit you.

When I take the time to meet you, read your posts, reply to your email, and comment on your blog it shows I care about you, and I do.

It shows I'm not just in this for me.

Meeting you is what I enjoy most.

Blogging isn't about me.

It's about encouragement.

It's about people.

It's about life.

It's about you.

Be an encouragement to one another. ~Hebrews 3:13

Responding to comments and leaving them is a great way to encourage.

I love this post. We blog about ourselves usually as bloggers and it's nice to give back to others who take the time to leave comments or to follow us.

Great post. I love the clean lines and look of your blog. There are so many choices out there and I know when I did mine it was such a hard decision.

I would agree that blogging is about connecting. I'm trying my best to do that more, bookmark the blogs I want to read and meet new people!

I love that this is the first post people see when they visit! Nice to "meet" you!

It's true. Blogging is about the connection. Since I've become a mother which coincidentally is the same amount of time I've been blogging, I've needed the connection more than ever.

In all aspects of our lives it's about giving and receiving. By giving of ourselves, we receive the greatest blessings in return.

and that's why I'm here! And that's why I keep coming back. Plus, I heart your words. Community and connection – if for not doing that in bloggy land – we might as well not be here. God bless you Adrienne – and like I said the last time – I'm really hearting all of this blue :)
