The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. – James 5:16
I know I’m being prayed for because I see it working. In the past two months, doors have been opened and I’m walking through them. I’ve yet to discover what some of the doors lead to, but I’m hopeful. The past month an old friend of mine who I met almost 10 years ago at a Women’s Business Conference asked if I had any prayer requests. I mentioned business – because being self-employed can be hard, because being an entrepreneur can be overly busy or totally boring, and because social media can either fill your head with really good stuff, or make you feel inadequate. And well, because prayer is like the best gift you could ever give someone and sharing what you need prayer for shows your vulnerability and keeps you humble.
I have signed up for a few educational courses in regards to blogging – how to get better at it. These are educationally informative, similar to photography workshops I took years ago as a budding photographer before I turned my hobby into a profession. As with anything, I believe in doing any specialty right and investing time and money. Now about this blogging thing – some of you know me personally, many of you know me as a photographer, and some of you may just know me as a blogger. If I can be completely candid, my blog exists to focus on the things I do – photography and my graphic design – and every so often there’s a fun project or business I get to work with that I would typically want to engage with in every day life anyway. So this is an open journal/diary of my life and I love the ability to interact with anyone who reads or needs assistance in a specific area (I hear you, gardening and photography, got it!).
If you’re hoping to sharpen up on your blogging, check out the SoFabU on the Road which stops in Phoenix, Saturday, March 28. It’ll take place at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort with sponsors including Johnny Rockets, Müller, Kraft and iBlog. The one day event is filled with networking opportunities and blogging tips by Aliza Sherman who I am super excited to learn from and hopefully be reaffirmed I’m doing it right, or be gently corrected if I’m doing it all wrong. If you’re not in Phoenix, there are additional across the country stops, the tour just started. If you go, let me know, I’d like a friend or two to sit with.
