It was my blogiversary earlier this month, and I
completely forgot decided to wait until now to celebrate!
It’s been two years since I started this blog, and I can’t believe how much it has grown. I don’t know what I expected to happen…I think that even though I wanted to have a lot of followers, I never thought I would actually have a lot of followers. And yet True and Pure continues to grow, and God is using my writing beyond what I ever imagined.
So thank you, my wonderful readers, for supporting me and being interested in what I have to say! Without you, this blog would have no point. It means so much that you continue to read and like and comment on my posts. Thank you for always being such thoughtful, encouraging readers, who I truly enjoy interacting with!
All-Time Most Popular Posts
I have posted a total of 166 posts since I started this blog. Here are the top ten most popular:
In the year to come, I want to continue to write posts that will encourage all of you to live for God in your teen years. I want to write more reviews, invite more guest posters, and try lots of new things (seriously, I have so many ideas…poetry/flash fiction, interviews, Q&As…).
I would welcome any requests or suggestions you have! Feel free to leave me a comment, or get in touch with the form under “Contact Me”.
And now, a True and Pure first…my very first giveaway!
In honor of my blogiversary, I will be giving away the following to one winner:
- A paperback copy of Paper Crowns by Mirriam Neal (read my review)
- A handwritten note of encouragement from me
- Be a follower of my blog
- Comment below and share a Bible verse that’s been encouraging you this summer!
That’s it! The giveaway will close on August 25, 2017. I’ll choose one winner to announce in my post on August 26!
I’m so excited for the year to come, and I can’t wait to see what God does with my words this year! Thank you again, so much, for coming along on this journey with me!
