I haven't talked too much about the Influence Network here on the blog, but I think it's high time I do!
Last fall, I attended the Influence Conference and met so many wonderful ladies, learned a great many things about blogging, and discovered how an online community can translate into real, in-life support and friendship :) In January, they launched the Influence Network, and it took me about 5 minutes to sign up! So far, I'm loving all the classes I've taken, learned a lot from the forums, and have "met" lots of cool, blogger ladies!
Today, they are doing an "Introduce Yourself" link-up, and I thought it would be fun to join :)
Even if you're not part of the network, it's always fun to learn just a bit more about someone!
Here we go:
Me. Josh took this photo on the day we found out we were pregnant :)
Three things about me:
1.) I've always loved to write. In fact, I began my first novel when I was 16. It included a crazy lady in the woods, a murdered slave, a private investigator, a sappy private investigator's assistant, a setting in the South (where I had never been at that point in my life), and lots of very unrealistic situations. I never did finish it, and it was the first of many stories I started but never finished. However, I would love to write + publish a book someday :)
2.) I can resist sugar, but I don't have self-control when it comes to salty things. Brownies...you're good and I love you, but I can ignore you. Doritos...watch your back! You'll last about five minutes in my pantry. This is why I rarely buy salty snacks :) I know my weaknesses!
3.) I'm a total homebody. I immediately get into comfy clothes when I get home, and once I'm home, I don't like going back out. At the same time, I'm trying to do better at getting out, spending more time with people, and being a little more spontaneous!
A valuable thing (or some things...) I've gained from the Influence Network:
Ask questions. Don't be afraid of change (hence blog name change!). And this online community is powerful, encouraging, life-giving, and Jesus-loving!
If you're a blogger and want to get connected with a group of ladies who share your passion, faith, and heart, the Influence Network may be a place to start :)
