When I started blogging circa 2005 on the Yahoo 360° platform in Kenya, it was considered rather strange. I would save money to go to the cybercafé and pay to use the slow dial-up internet. Sometimes I would run out of money as I tried to upload a blog post. There were numerous hurdles, but one thing that kept me going was passion. When Yahoo 360° was discontinued, I tried BlogSpot for a few years then went ahead to switch to WordPress in 2009, and it has been an incredible ride for sure!
Today I had a conversation with one of my mentors regarding my blog. I realize that my strengths lie in innovation and creation but are heavily lacking in some areas. I feel that my previous job, which was very demanding, stifled my growth. So, my mentor challenged me to evaluate how I can improve. I certainly feel blessed as I step into this new season.
I don’t take it for granted that today’s auto-generated bible verse on my blog happens to be one that I highlighted on a recent blog. This verse will serve as my blog-prayer moving forward!
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Happy Blogiversary to me 🎉
