I’m still pinching myself….the May issue of Artful Blogging is out and I had the honor of sharing a little part of my blogging story in it. When I first got the email that they wanted to feature my blog, I am pretty sure I read it 20 times before I could believe it. Still, it wasn’t real until the magazine was actually in my hands. In the issue, I was asked to share a significant blogging story. It didn’t take me long to know the story I wanted to share – The Incubator Project.
Some of you were part of that story. Some of you have no idea what I am talking about, you can click on the link in the menu bar to read about it.
It was 3 years ago. I can’t believe it has already been 3 years!!!
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“On April 16, 2012, I did what I had done nearly every weekday for four years – I posted a piece of myself to my blog. The Incubator Project was live and out there for the world to see….The support came like crashing waves. Each time I was knocked back by the generosity of others and their willingness to stand beside me to impact the lives of children many considered forgotten. For years I shared bits and pieces of myself on my blog and on that day it felt like it all those years hit a crescendo. This community, built online – they had my back. They reminded me that I had friends and strangers alike cheering my family on, caring about my daughter and choosing to be a voice for those that had none. ”
You can read the full article in the magazine. I’ve had my older boys read it – what a gift for me to get to share with them again the story of those of you that read this blog and what you did for vulnerable kids. Thank you. A million times. Thank you.
The issue is full of features of beautiful blogs. Gorgeous photography. One of the pictures from my random blog they wanted to include is of my youngest son and I being goofy at the Christmas tree farm. It is so random and not one I would have every picked for publication, which is what makes it pretty perfect that it is included. He loves seeing it in printYou can order a copy online. There are stores that carry the magazine, but I am not sure which ones…sorry I’m not much help on that part!
