You’re reading that date right.
Seven years ago today, I posted my very first post on the Internet. I set up my first blog after Googling “blogspot.com” after seeing it as part of someone’s URL (at a store, I think).
The post is short and sweet, but the step I took that day revolutionized my life. Two years later, just before I went to college, I would start this blog under the name Musings of a Simple College Student. Shortly after that, I would find and begin reading blogs other people wrote, but it took another year at least before anyone began to read here.
Jesus has grown this blog into something I never dreamed of when I published my first little words online. But He’s marvelous that way, isn’t He? Taking what we feel is small and unworthy and making it beautiful, all for His glory.
Seven years of blogging fires me up. More than that, reflecting the work God has done through that time and effort sets my whole heart afire.
