What The New Year Holds For This Blog

I am arriving at this season of life that is not crammed to the fullest. Surely, I still work three days a week as a speech therapist. I spend the rest of the time writing my Master’s thesis. So there is enough to fill my time, with ministry on top of all that.

I have prayed and thought about what to do with this blog. I have considered if I should stop, yet that doesn’t seem to be the right step. So I will keep on writing, yet I want there to be some changes. Mainly to make this blog more interactive with you, my friend. To share more with you and to encourage you in your walk with the Lord.

What the New Year Holds

So what does the new year hold? What can you expect to see on this blog?

More personal posts. I want to post more, and I want to share more of my life with you — as that is where God works. I will still share the messages God puts on my heart. But I want to share the little and the mundane, too.

Book reviews. Because I still love to read, and I like sharing what I have read with you. You can check out the book reviews I have done here.

A Link-Up. I have thought about this for quite some time, and I feel like the time to do this might just be now. I want to start hosting a link up as lately I have noticed that many of the link ups I love have stopped. So it feels like there is a space for a new link up. I will soon take the steps to put that into action.

More community. This is one of my goals for the new year. How this is exactly going to happen, I don’t know yet. I am praying about this and seeing where God will lead us. The link-up is one way I will be building more community here. Another one I want to do is have guest posts over here — but that will need your participation, friend.

Freebies. The first one, the Study Guide to the book of James, is up on the blog. This is an area I want to grow in — creating things that encourage and edify. I pray that God will give me the inspiration in this new year, to create more to benefit all of us.

  1. Hi Ronja,
    Happy new year! As I started reading, I thought maybe you were going to write that you would not post as often so I was delighted to read that you plan on sharing more personal posts — I love that! I love the idea of more community and a link-up, too. I think sometimes in the mid-life of our blogs, we need to break away for awhile or make adjustments to revive our own souls (I know that’s where I’m at) so here’s to 2018 and moving forward into all God has for us! xoxo

    1. Happy new year, Valerie! I totally understand that feeling of needing a break. Mostly because as great as blogging is, it also requires quite a lot from us. Pouring out our hearts and words is not always an easy thing. So good that you are taking that break! I pray that God will refresh and encourage you in this season. God bless you!
