Okay, confess you were one to hop scotch every where you went huh? At the grocery store you would use the large squares on the floor to hop around while your mom would push the cart following her list. She would glance back and see her precious child hopping around your braids whipping you in your face and she would smile before she weighed her tomato's.
You would just itch until it was your turn to try your best to be the "hopscotch" winner at the playground. Your mom would joke around telling her friends she jumps more than she walks.
You were that little girl weren't you?
I am "hopping" challenge. I could not hop scotch or jump rope if my life depended on it. My large foot would always get caught in the rope and I would fall to my face. Sigh...big feet.
So, when I was nineteen I discovered a hopping I actually could do. And my poor big feet could stay on solid ground. I discovered "How to blog" what I needed to do was "hop" around find blogs that had the same standards I had that I could relate too and "comment" on their blogs. Some never commented back on mine but the majority came back over to mine and some stayed. Others found me first and I discovered how much I enjoyed their blogs.
It's amazing how one blog, one author, one post could encourage you, humble you, challenge you as much as some of theses blog authors have done to me.
You know not only posts can make an impression but comments as well...
There is one comment I received early on that surprised me to no end. It aggravated me it annoyed me but most of all it made me sad for this person. It was my first negative comment and I decided after I prayed about it that I needed to write a post about it.
The comment was this "Ginger, you are afraid to die so you believe in fairy tales." First I was glad this person pointed this out to me because I had no idea I was afraid to die! Am I Living A Fairy Tale?
This afternoon as I hopped all around the blogsphere it brought back some wonderful memories. Where I would discover a new blog and want to read every post the author had ever written. It was like buying a new novel and just can't put it down.
I was glad I "made" the time to blog hop today it was so refreshing it was so fun and it gave me an idea for my next 3 years and counting post! ;)
I know some of you have already told me how you found my blog but if you haven't yet. Why don't you jot it down on my comment box. It would be fun to read about it and if you already had still comment! It's been so fun hearing from all you keep those comments coming!
