I've been tagged

A few weeks ago I was tagged by Julie of The Roost for a meme. But with all the house drama I am just now getting around to playing along.

Here are the rules:
1. Write about 5 specific ways blogging has affected you, either positively or negatively.
2. link back to the person who tagged you
3. link back to this parent post
4. tag a few friends or five, or none at all
5. post these rules— or just have fun breaking them.
So here is how blogging has affected me…

1. Friends --
These friends that only exist on my computer are some of the most amazing women I have never met. Their stories lift me up and keep me laughing. And it’s proven that laughter is good for you. I love each one of them to pieces. I would love to met each one of them and give them a hug to let them know what a blessing they have been in my life.

2. Faith --
Oh how my spirit has been renewed. I am challenged by each one to grow in my walk with Christ. Challenged to know Him and love Him more than I ever thought possible. To know that someone is praying for me everyday, what a comfort. There are truly some God fearing, Jesus loving women in this world. Amen.

3. Fun --
I know it looks as if I am on things that begin with the letter F kick but I’m not. I love to get on the computer and type out my thoughts. Some where to just dump what ever is kicking around in my brain. It’s great to be able to express myself and post it out there for others to read. You never know who else might be in the same position as you and need to laugh or just someone to listen to them. I also love to read the adventures of other women too. There are some funny things happening in the blog world.

4. Creativity --
I have always had a creative side but blogging lets me express a new side. I love to scrapbook but with two boys, I hardly have the time. So this is kind of like my scrapbook. I love to see how others decorate for the holidays or see what other women are cooking. I like to borrow ideas I see on someone else’s blog and incorporate them into my own. Let me tell you…you girls can decorate and cook!

5. Confidence –
This is an issue I know women struggle with. Blogging has given me the confidence to go out side of my comfort zone. Do things that I probably would have never done. Talk to people I would normally never talk to. I’ve sent emails to people and received some back that are completely amazing. I am more comfortable in my skin. Just like the title says, I have more confidence in my self.

Ok ladies now it’s time for me to pass this little meme on.
So tag it’s your turn. I am tagging:

Genny at My Cup 2 Yours
Yvette at the Charm House
Theresa at Yew Nork Babe
Soliloquy at She Just Had To Say It

And because I am a rule breaker, I am only going to tag four people.

Thanks. I hope you don't mind being tagged.

I loved learning more about you.

How are you doing? I have been praying for you! God bless.

Theresa said...

Thank you for tagging me. I think this is the first time since I started blogging that I've been tagged.

I'll have to think about this one.

It is great learning more about you.
