Dear True Woman Reader,
It feels a bit surreal to write this post. You see, this month the True Woman blog turns five. Five! That might not sound like a big deal to you, but I think it’s huge.
See, five years ago when this blog first opened its doors and turned on its lights, it existed to do one thing: promote the True Woman ’08 Conference. That’s all. Its team of bloggers consisted of one: little ’ole inexperienced me who had never written for—let alone followed—a blog in her life.
For one year I did my best to create “buzz” about the conference. Then, the following January, our blogger team tripled in size when Kimberly Wagner and Mary Kassian jumped on board. Since then, we’ve had around fifty bloggers post on this site (with lots more to come in the future!). And while we still promote True Woman Conferences (here’s a little shout-out for Revive '13: Women Helping Women!), this blog has taken on a life of its own, producing (I hope) practical, life-giving hope and truth five days a week.
That, my friend, is a God-thing. Totally beyond me. Worth celebrating, don’t you think? God has been overwhelmingly good, once again.
To mark this occasion, for the next three weeks, we’ll give something away each day. We’ll also feature the “best of” blog posts from the last five years. Check back each day and encourage your friends to come on over and see what the True Woman blog is all about—as well as win free stuff!
Also. There would be no reason to celebrate if you weren’t right where you are reading this now. Thank you for making this blog a part of your very important day. Please leave a comment below and let us know how we can better serve you as we head into our sixth year. What would you like to hear and read and see this year?
