A long, long time ago I had a request or two for me to share a list of blogs I follow. And I was like, now why didn’t I think of that?
Guess what? I’m finally doing it!
Here they are:

Now that I’ve shared with you the blogs I’ve chosen to subscribe to, I have a favor to ask:
Would you introduce yourself in the comments section below?
I’m not trying to make this like the ‘awkward first day’ or something (although I probably am), but I’ve been feeling the urge to ask this for so long and keep chickening out. This blog has grown immensely since I first began writing it, and I write about such different topics I honestly have no idea what brought you here. Or keeps bringing you here (if you’re a long time reader).
I’ve struggled lately with juggling, life, work, this blog, All Of It, etc. and I guess I just feel like it’s time to “meet” more of the people here in this space. Because people usually motivate me, and because I’m a sucker for a good ‘how we met’ story.
To make it feel a little more natural (or even less depending upon your sense of humor) I’ll start:
Hi. My name is Laura and I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember — I even competed in Power of the Pen during junior high for pete’s sake. I’m here because after a long absence in creative writing I started a blog documenting the pregnancy of my first son. Toward the end of my pregnancy I had a college acquaintance (who regularly read the blog) reach out to me and tell me,
“I hope you keep writing after your son is born.”
It was a more powerful message than I think she even knew. And it was that message that brought me to this space: one I believe God has blessed me with.
Even if I’m still trying to figure out its specific purpose. :)
Your turn. Annnd go. ;)

Also, here’s the free printable download I made — consider it a thank you. :)
