About one year ago I was encouraged by my Blog-Mother, Mommy Smart, to start a blog. She helped me get started and encouraged me daily during that dull first month. So today I celebrate my blog’s 1st birthday. On November 14, 2006, “Rediscovering Church” was born. A few months later “Rediscovering Church” was changed to simply “Trey Morgan.net.” Now as I look back on one full year of blogging one thing comes to my mind, “I can’t believe I’ve stuck with this thing for a whole year.”
Seriously, one year later, and 80,000 visitors later, I am amazed at how my life has been blessed by all of the wonderful friends I have made through this blog. You have become such a blessing in my life. I enjoy your comments, your opinions, your emails and your friendship.
As I spent some time this week looking back over a year’s worth of posts, I had mixed emotions. Some posts I read I thought, “Wow, that was harsh. Did I really say that?” and others I thought, “What was I thinking when I wrote that?” All in all, I’ve loved sharing my thoughts. My goal when I started this blog was to post about the church and what God wanted it to be. Things changed over the course of a year, and my focus was more on marriage and family than anything else. I also got to thinking about what my favorite post was. If I had to delete every post on my blog but one, which one would I leave as my favorite post? I’ll give you the answer later this week.
At the bottom of my blog there is an item called a site meter that tells me that hundreds of people visit everyday from all over the world. I think that is so cool. While some choose to leave comments, many still don’t – and that’s okay. But if I had one “blog birthday wish” today it would be for all those who stop by to leave me a comment telling me who you are and where you’re from. If you’re uncomfortable leaving a name, you can just leave me your initials. I’d love to know where you are from.
I don’t know how long I’ll keep on blogging, but I have to admit that the first year has been a lot of fun. My prayer is that this blog has been as much of a blessing in your life as it has been mine. Thanks for being my friend.
