3 Today!! Woop Woop!!
Thanks so much for your support along the way. Here are a few highlights and reflections on my journey so far.
Year 1: Feel the Buzz
Exactly 3 years ago today, I was sat in a cafe along one of Bristol’s ever intriguing and eclectic high streets – Gloucester Road (See article: the longest stretch of Independent shops in the UK).
With background chatter, finely brewed coffee, and an overpriced slice of indulgent cake, I finally put the finishing touches on my new blog – Reposed Thought.
The first year was such an exciting adventure as there was so much to explore and to learn. From my testimony of how I became a Christian, to the never ending journey of an Architect, there was also much to share.
Year 2: Honeymoon over?
The second year was undoubtedly more challenging as the creativity started to fizzle out along with the initial buzz created when the blog first began. With the added pressure of starting my first full time 9-5 job post uni, the time to create was also drastically reduced. Still I persevered to create Big City Dreams and Morning Run Thoughts during that seemingly dry patch.
I constantly found myself reflecting on how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ a post was based on what response I got. I was determined to not let that be the case in the following year.
Year 3: Recreate the high
Throughout 2017, I have felt a combined desire to blog as an outlet for myself and out of respect for my followers. But also, for the sheer fun of it.
This has in turn freed me to create when inspired rather than posting to maintain some kind of interest. I have felt some of that initial creativity creep back in. My undoubted favourite series from the past year was the daily Zambia photo journal.
Year 4: ?
Well.. Lets see what happens..
In all that I do, as a blogger or as a Christian, it is my deepest desire to use my God-given talents to help point people to Jesus and his love for us as a broken people.
I recently had an interesting conversation with a fellow blogger that I’ve never met about one of my poems. They said that even though they do not share my faith, they could appreciate what I had to say about life and its challenges and how my faith gives me strength through them.
