There are going to be a few changes here at The Riches of His Love….
Let me explain.
I started blogging on my other blog The Smith Family Journey in 2008 after a miscarriage, one that I wasn’t dealing well with and I used writing as a way to heal. Then I started posting updates about my family and it became a little online journal. I didn’t have time to scrapbook and my blog allowed me the opportunity to post pictures and make memories for my family.
Every once and awhile I would post a review or a story about my faith walk. Then last November when I was asked to be a part of the God Sized Dream Team I felt I needed a space that could be used just for my “faith stories”. And in December this blog was born!
I have had a hard time keeping up with 2 blogs over the past 11 months and my family blog has taken the worst of the neglect. I have decided to stop posting there (for now) and make this space here my “home”.
That means that not only will I share stories about me here, I may from time to time share about my family updates as well. I will also be doing some reviews and giveaways in the coming months as I have partnered with a publishing company that has lots of Christian books, movies etc. available for review. I promise that anything I share is something I believe in and would feel comfortable sharing with my little children. I also promise that this space won’t be overfilled with review posts.
Since 2008 I have made less than $100 in “blogging income”. That is NOT why I blog! 🙂 I have signed up with several affiliate sites in the past and just got tired of having to try so hard to push a product for an $0.08 payout! 😉 So at this time there won’t be a lot of that here. But it is always fun to get something free for review – so that is likely the most of what I will share.
Finally as I mentioned before I am making a commitment here to share an “Impact Opportunity” with you around the first of each month. I believe strongly in giving back and there are so many organizations and people that could use our help. I know you will be blessed by them as well
So if you have been with me awhile — I hope you will stay in spite of these changes. And if you are new here – Welcome!! My family is one of the biggest reasons I have this space to begin with so I think it will be a good fit to combine the two spaces into one home.
