First Year Anniversary

Today marked the first anniversary of my blogging journey. I still remember reading other bloggers' posts and saying to myself, "wow, I should have a blog too." So I started "Peregrine Sojo - Kitty's Kronicle". My reasons for blogging was to share my inward and outward journeys, and to connect with people through it. Basically I wanted to have an online place to record my thoughts, to keep ideas and to write about things of interest. I also saw it as a journal that would catch my inner thoughts, discipline me to write regularly, to pause in life, and to express my feelings.

Throughout this past year, my ideas about blogging have evolved to place more focus on the relational aspect of it. To me, blogging now is not just about sharing my own journey but that it is a medium that has an amazing potential to connect and engage people. I have had some amazing and rich discussion in various topics on many occasions. Even though many of us are from various parts of the world, or at least different suburbs or states if you are in Australia, the opportunity to engage with fellow blogger friends has been an enriching experience for me this past year. I am very grateful for my readers and blogger friends. I have been blessed enormously by both writing regularly here, and getting encouraging and kind comments from my blogger friends. Truly blogging is about mutual relationships, sharing ideas and experiences, building friendships and blessing one another.

I would like to thank my 'blogging buddies' for reading my blog, and your support and comments for this past year :)

Congratulations Kitty.

It's interesting how our blogging style and identity tend to formulate in those early months.

I agree with you about the community aspect of blogging. I love having friends all over the world who I've never even seen face to face.

Keep on blogging. :)

That's right Matthew. I'm glad I met you through blogging:)

Amanda said...

Thanks for what you share Kitty. Yours is one of those blogs that if I see you've added something I choose to read first over some others (on bloglines) and I tend to follow what you've said from there to your actual blog more often than most! Thanks for your input.

Kitty Cheng said...

Thank you Amanda. What you said about me here is mutual. I enjoy your blog input very much, especially knowing that we are in the same line of work for God! :)

forgiven said...

Hi Kitty
This is for you....

We must feel toward our people as a father toward his children; yea, the most tender love of a mother must not surpass ours. We must even travail in birth, till Christ be formed in them. They should see that we care for no outward thing, neither liberty, nor honor, nor life, in comparison to their salvation... When the people see that you truly love them, they will hear anything from you...Oh therefore, see that you feel a tender love for your people in your hearts, and let them perceive it in your speech and conduct. Let them see that you spend and are spent for their sakes."
Author: Baxter, Richard

Keep writing with Love
Jesus's Love
