This morning I was looking up a website on modest bathing suits as my sister and I are hoping to make them (my sister wants me to make hers, lol) for the summer. I wanted to order the pattern (I rarely do that) so that I could be sure we get the right fit.
While in the midst of hopping around looking at random websites associated with this swimsuit I came across the blog of a 19-yr old girl who is so open about wanting to be modest and on fire for God. I clicked through her sewing blog and then over to her main blog, Fresh Modesty. The post I read made me ponder why I am a blogger and what I am portraying to others around me.
I’d already been thinking about this very topic because of an earlier post from another blog of a person who had quit blogging. They had stopped blogging because they were more focused on finding cool things to blog about than they were in taking care of their house. I was a little convicted (not that that is my reason for blogging) but someone had been asking me recently how I find so much time to sew when she can barely get her household chores done. And I had to admit to her that my sewing usually takes precedence over house-hold chores. So the past two weeks I have really been working on that, to change it. I don’t want my husband coming home to a dirty house just because I feel the need to sew (I love to create – especially cool, modest clothing that I feel comfortable in).
But, do I honestly portray the real me in my blog? I hope I do! I try to be open and honest. I’m not going to air all my dirty laundry, but I’m not perfect (as yesterday’s post attested to, lol).
Anyway, here’s a link to this wonderful, insightful post on honesty. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
