Yeah...that's right. I find the more I write on SelahV Today, the more folks see me as that writer/person, blogger. Some of you know I write devotionals, but few realize my interests are far-reaching. When I started blogging in 2006, I had a dream to make a website that allowed me freedom to publish the stuff I like to write about I even hoped to one day have like-minded, joy-brimming, honey-coated, creative-soulmates contribute to my site (that's coming).
For me, one blog was rather limiting. When God gives you an over-active creative brain, you simply can't put it all in one shoebox --(at one time I had 12 blogs...crazy). The problem back in 2006 was the feed-features weren't available to me without enormous costs and a degree in html and website design. Today...thanks to Typepad's user-friendly hosting, I am able to do tons of stuff I only hoped a webmaster could do. Sooooo...
Integrating my blogs together with rolling feeds in my sidebars seemed like a great solution. That way you can see a pinch of most everything I write at various spots. This is a work in progress. I've been spending a great deal of time creating, organizing, and designing my dreams. Amazingly...
since I began my quest to integrate my blogs in this fashion, my Google Analytics say my visits are up nearly 60%; and folks are staying 48% longer. This means I am doing something that helps my readers. And this is my goal at SelahV Today:
To bring uplifting, edifying encouragement, information, and devotional thoughts. At times I am a bit opinionated when a subject riles me, impassions me, or disturbs me-- (I admit, on occasion, I have to repent and lean on God's new mercies each morning--good thing He's not finished with me). But even with those times, I hope to reign in my ego and point us all back to the ultimate help we have as Christians...the LORD Jesus Christ.
I am particularly interested in expanding my Kids' Matters and Feminine Matters sliver of SelahV Today. Would like to link up with more of those kind of blogs so we could connect others to the unbelievable creative gifts throughout the internet. I go some places and it's simply bleh. I go to others and think, WOW...I like this idea, technique, useful gardening craft, or artistic business. So, it's my hope that you'll catch the drift of where I'm headed. I'm excited about what God will do with me next as I use the gifts He has given me for His kingdom.
I hope you'll take a bit of time and peruse the various parts of this site to see Daily Impact, Feminine Matters, Food Matters, Kids' Matters, and my weekly newspaper column (republished) at Common Matters. You'll see little picture/button/icons and below each are portions of my other blogs with links (will add more each week). I'm hoping you know someone somewhere who'll like something I have to offer. I yearn to be that virtuous woman. I plan on working more and more on this as time goes on.
Let me know what you think. Oh...and also, send my your links with cool posts you find while internet surfing. Especially if they involve kids adventures, and interesting innovative women. selahV and "ME"
