Two Year Blogoversary!

In celebration of my blogs two year birthday, I will be celebrating it all month with reviews from great companies, giveaways (because I love my readers), and personal post to wrap it all together.

A little information about my blog is in order! So enjoy learning as I answer the following questions!

How or why did it start?

I have been blogging for quite some time on the internet. I had a Pleonast, Xanga, and a Live Journal blog before I owned my own domain and created this blog with Word Press. Connected2Christ” was started in general to keep in touch with my family whom live in Georgia and it was also a means to promote my graphic designing abilities. Little did I know that it would take off like it has this year…being a mommy honestly changes a whole lot more than I thought it would.

Where did the name come from?

Connected2Christ was an email name I came up with in the year 2000. It was something that stuck with me. Through God, all of His children are connected to him, never being alone, and if seeking Him will be guided in where we should go. I am leaving my blog in His hands, thus the name is suitable and it won’t be getting changed anytime soon.

โ€œBeloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.โ€ ~ 1 John 4:7

How has it grown in a year?

My blog went from weekly updates of my life and several paid advertisements to help support my family, to a blog of motherhood, a blog of information, an even more personal blog though littered with reviews and advice. I’ve really enjoyed reviewing products and sharing my thoughts with others. I recall as a first time mother, I didn’t know what to purchase, etc… for my child. I really wish I was turned on to the world of blogging before my little one was born, it would have extremely helpful in hearing opinions from several points of views before purchasing or trying something new on/for my child.

Where do I want my Blog to go?

I’d like to eventually have a bigger readership, and I hope to continue to keep adding helpful content. I am working on sharing more encouragement from the Word of God to my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. I know for myself, sometimes it’s just a simple verse or biblical reminder that really jump starts or lifts my day and I want to be able to offer that here as well as offering prayer to those who requests it.

I would like to meet and form relationships with other bloggers out there too! (If you ever want to chat, drop me a line! )

…And a question to you my readers, what would you like to see more of here?
