As part of my 101 in 1001, I made a goal to sponsor some other wonderful blogs both to support their authors and help them grow, but also to teach me about posting and expose me to other readers. I want to grow too, of course. 🙂

This relationship of learning from and supporting others is one that still astounds me in the blog world. How wonderful that I can be exposed to three women this amazing. I love reading about their lives, their struggles, their faith, and their families. And while I don’t know them in person, I feel honored to be a sponsor on the side of their stories and to tell the world that I love what they write.
Trying to explain blogging relationships to those who don’t blog can be a little tricky. It doesn’t make intuitive sense that one would want to open up to a stranger or support an acquaintance’s work. But in my mind, these women are more than just tertiary friends. How? Through their blogs.
I blog because it is fun and it helps me be present in my life and remember all of the wonderful things for which I am grateful. But I also blog because I love being able to connect to people halfway across the world. Sometimes in life you become friends with someone because you take the same yoga class or go to the same school or work in the same city.
Sometimes you become friends with someone because you feel connected to their words, thoughts, and ideas.
That’s how it is in the blog world for me. I look forward to continuing to sponsor wonderful woman who I admire. I hope you all visit their blogs to learn just as much from them as I do. 🙂
