A big thank you to Amanda Preston over at My Lovely Crazy Life for nominating Embracing the Unexpected | Maree Dee for the Blogger Recognition Award. What an honor and encouragement to be chosen by you.
Brief Story on how Maree Dee started Blogging:
Embracing the Unexpected began with a whisper from God, many years ago, “Maree I want you to write and tell our stories.”I knew God had taught me how to embrace life in the midst of the unexpected, but I wasn’t so sure about sharing it. At first, I ignored the gentle whisper convinced I had misheard God. You can read more about this in my post – Do you listen to God’s Whispers? Click here.
Maree Dee’s Advice to New Bloggers:
- Practice, practice, practice – The more you practice, the better you will get. “Just Write!”
- Gather a team of encouragers
- Educate yourself about blogging, social media, and writing. I signed up for Compel.
- Be obedient – if God called you to it – just do it.
