Bicentennial +3

Today marks the 203rd post for everyday epistle.

hello, country buntin’

A lot has transpired since our centennial post Lyrical Interlude last October. Good time to recap:

Also began testing advertising. Seeing as I’ve yet to make a penny, this test may end sooner rather than later.

Whisper was the most-read post between our centennial and bicentennial +3. It catapulted to the top where it’s third behind I Like My Bike and Milk Wars.

The second most-read post  between our centennial and bicentennial +3 was Leah. The third was Field Trip to Visit a Cowboy.

everything’s coming up pinwheels

I’m still learning and having fun. Expect I’ll keep writing, testing, and making course corrections. Knowledge acquired from the ground up sticks with me. Feels like I know it by heart.

Hmm. That sounds an awful lot like praise for the process from an impatient, results-oriented, change-it-yesterday kind of girl.

Like I said, I continue to learn. Thank God, don’t we all?

Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.
Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord,
and you will gain knowledge of God.
For the Lord grants wisdom!
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:3-6 NLT

What are you learning?

  1. Congratulations on seeing so much success! I’m results-oriented, too, but the process really is a good thing. I’m excited to keep reading as you make changes and grow!

    I liked your question at the end… What are you learning? I went back and re-read Whisper. While I’ve read all of your amazing posts, I couldn’t remember it from the title. What are you learning?
    I am learning that I am quick to have opinions on subjects I can never completely understand. I am learning to seek out the other side, understand the head and the heart of the “opposition” to try to have a view outside my own upbringing, experiences and values. I am remembering judgement is not mine to give, and that differences of opinions and ideas can strengthen a friendship not destroy it, if both parties are willing to listen. Not agree, not conclude, not reach a consensus, but listen. I’m learning a lot today, and every day. And it’s not even noon yet. Thanks Aimee, for your posts and your friendship and your point-of-view. I value them all beyond measure. That I learned a long time ago.

    • Love you, Lisa!
      I learned from a very wise woman to ask “what am I learning?” when I don’t understand or don’t like my circumstances. I don’t always remember to do this, and it’s not easy. But my teacher also said to go to God with the questions, rely on Him to keep me afloat, and even pray I learn what He wants me to learn so the difficult times are not wasted.

    I have enjoyed reading your site so I’ve nominated you for the Illuminating Blogger Award for illuminating, informative blog content. You can check out the details at my site … … Have a great holiday weekend!

  5. Congratulations, Aimee! I wish I was anywhere near that milestone… But soon, once everything finds its place at the new apartment, and the fridge fills itself, there may even be more posts on AC4A! :)

  6. Aimee, I feel like I can say I was around before this blog was conceived. Your gift of writing is truly amazing and I am so glad you are sharing it in this blog platform. I just blogged today about blogging less this year. I feel some sort of guilt from it yet I love the more time I have to spend with my family. Congrats on your success. Keep sharing! I’m always reading…but usually on my phone and not commenting like a good blog reader should do.

    • Thank you so much, Katie! No guilt about blogging less. You have a new job, a growing family, a record of four (or is it five?) years under your belt of successful blogging with a tremendous following, and it’s summer. We all do the balancing act when it comes to time. There is a season for everything… At least that’s what I keep telling myself :)
