I didn’t really know what I was doing last December when I wrote my first blog post for My Favorite Finds….
It was a recipe for Popcorn Chicken and Homemade Steak Fries…..it had no “labels”, it wasn’t “linked up” to another site for others to see, and it was just a record for me to start keeping track of what we were eating.
I have a family blog, where I share our day to day (let’s be real-sometimes I only post monthly) happenings in our family life, and I didn’t want to “clutter” it with menu plans, recipes, and other things I was finding online.
I had been “blogging” as a reader for sometime….and I was inspired. I wanted to start a site where people could see that being organized, parenting, crafting, and cooking could be balanced in with the rest of their life. I wanted to show people that a “not crafty person” could take on some projects and with a little trial and error be successful and proud of their work-nothing a little hot glue and mod podge can’t make, of this I’m convinced!

I started sharing my blog on FB, with my “real life” friends, then I had one follower on my blog….then two, then three, then four, and on and on. Woo Hoo! Then, I started a My Favorite Finds FB page, and I’m up to 70+ follower on there now.
Blogging is fun for me, it’s routine, and I feel like I’m helping others. Thank you so much for reading my blog, for your sweet comments, and for sharing your ideas with me. I like that I’ve made some “friends”, and even though we haven’t met in person, I feel like we are supporting each other and encouraging each other, so thank you!
I’m only 22 “followers” away from a 100 and that means another giveaway! Just in time for the holidays! Thank you so much to everyone who is following, who is a new follower-welcome! Thank you for reading my thoughts and for sharing!
You’re all such a blessing to me, and I thank God for you!
