There are a lot of blogs out there. And I mean A LOT OF BLOGS. Fashion blogs, lifestyle blogs, travel blogs, food blogs, you name it. And why? Because we’re living in the age of the blog.
It is easier than ever to sign up on Blogger or WordPress, play with type and color, write up your perspectives, and launch it out to the interwebs. That being the case, it makes a lot of sense where we are now. Anyone and everyone can make a blog.
Truthfully, I’m incredibly disinterested in starting a blog that looks and acts like everyone else’s. It’s for that reason that I’ve been hesitant for a long time to start a blog.
So why am I starting a blog?
I’m starting Created to Create because I want to be an authentic, Christ-centered voice for the blogging community. I want to be a voice of honesty, of vulnerability, of grace, and of kindness in a world that is filled with a lot of the opposite. I’m starting Created to Create because I want the light of Jesus Christ to shine out from me in all that I do.
I’m also starting Created to Create because I believe that we are all created in the image of the creator to go out and create on the earth. Unlike any animal on the planet, human beings are able to create things! We can write music, build businesses, paint masterpieces, create blogs (!!). I find so much joy and identity in the call God has placed on my heart to go into the world and create, and that’s what I’m doing here.
If any or all of this sounds good to you, please stick around!
And welcome to Created to Create.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” // John 8:12
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be middle. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” // Matthew 5:14-16
