Blog of the Month

(To See an Ongoing List of Blog of the Month Recipients, scroll to the end of this message)

Have you ever taken a spiritual gifts test? I've taken several and each time Mercy and Encouragement top the charts. Knowing that, you won't be surprised to learn that I love promoting other blogs, especially those that offer hopeful words.

My encouraging nature has been somewhat battling my organized nature, along with the side of me that desires to treat all equally. As much as I love putting buttons to promote your blogs on my blog, the buttons were starting to take over the page. And how can I choose just one or two to post? I cannot. Just the thought of cutting out a blog makes my right eye twitch. But not only does having a long list of buttons look a bit messy, the blogs tend to get lost in the shuffle.

Here is my solution. In addition to my blog roll, I will promote one randomly chosen blog a month on my side bar. You do not need to have a button to be selected. If it is your turn to be highlighted and you are "without button," I'll contact you for a photo or some type of graphic and link it to your site. Special contest buttons can be used instead of a general blog button.

If you have a blog you'd like me to check out for "Blog of the Month" feel free to e-mail the link. I have no idea if this will be popular or not. I certainly don't want to come across as "Miss Big Stuff Thinks Every One Wants to Link to Her Tiny Blog." I promise you, it's not like that at all. This is 100% about making all of you feel special. Everyone who has read this blog blesses me whether you know it or not.

However, if it does for some reason become popular, please be patient with me. And,If this system, for any reason, makes you feel less loved, talk to me. I'll encourage you through it.
