In honor of A Faithful Steps 1 Year Blogiversary, we are sharing the 5 most popular posts, determined by page views. Popular or “favorite” doesn’t always indicate the “best”, but then again, “best” is subjective. These might not be my favorite posts (you can find those here), but I can definitely see why they were your “favorite”!
This post was actually inspired by Modern Mrs Darcy’s “My 10 favorite posts of 2018.” Author, Blogger and Podcaster, Anne Bogel, wrote, “...I’m sharing my favorite posts of the year, and as you can see, that isn’t the same thing as “popular.” Her post was very motivational to a first time blogger who didn’t receive as many likes on some of the more vulnerable, emotional, and passionate posts. I enjoyed reading Anne Bogels opinion of her posts and the why behind them, so I figured I would share mine.
While I waited, I decided to start my own blog. Overwhelmed by the research and making the “right choice”, I just decided to jump right in. I created a place that I could share my life stories and hopefully encourage and equip women just like me.
Now, one year later, here I am! Looking back, I am shocked that 1) I have actually made it this far (more on that later), and 2) how far I’ve come.
August—I don’t even know where the month went. You can clearly tell since it is almost the middle of September when you are receiving this review. I published this for the sake of consistency and because these reviews truly help me evaluate my success and failures.
I understand that not everyone shares a passion for reading, that’s totally okay. Regardless of your passion, I do believe that you should attempt to read on a regular basis. Why? Because there are so many benefits to reading!
I Am Not Defined By My Weight - Part VII Pregnancy
This piece is Part 7 of a 9 Part Series called I Am Not Defined By My Weight, inspired by Rachel Hollis' book "Girl, wash your face".
My pregnancy did not meet all of my expectations. I had to stop running mid-way through my pregnancy due to pelvic pain, and I gained way more weight than I wanted (maybe 35-50 lbs.). Even still, I loved the journey I was on.
