It’s exactly a year since I published my first blog post with great fear and trepidation! Would anyone read them? Would people think I was getting too big for my boots by blogging? Would anyone care? Every time I have pressed the publish button I have had those feelings.

Thirty-five posts later and some 10,000 hits and visitors from so many nations of the world including one or two I’d never even heard of before, I am here celebrating my first year!

I’ve been amazed by the journey I’ve been on and blessed by the friendships I’ve made through blogging and also the new friends I now have on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. It’s been a wonderful journey which I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and that I hope you have benefited from too. My passion is this – to share lessons from my personal journey which will enable others to grow in their journey of faith. There is so much we can learn from one another.

During the past year the most read posts have been the five below which have each accounted for hundreds of individual hits. Maybe this is an opportunity to read them again or for the first time:

1. The Day That Changed My Life Forever

2. No Fear

3. Its What You Do In Secret

4. How To Kickstart Your Prayer Life

5. Let God Promote You

I’ve also finally managed to create an archive page where every single post and page is listed – so why not take a look. All my posts are there.

Building My Blog
I enjoy blogging and it’s become my hobby – maybe you’ve considered doing it yourself? I’ve put together a build your own blog page containing some of the things I’ve learn’t during this first year – I’ve learned so much and thought it would be an idea to share some of those tip

If you’ve enjoyed this post you might like to check out my book entitled ‘Imagine’ that is all about trusting God based on the amazing promise in Proverbs 3:5-6. Imagine is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and other major book sellers worldwide.

One recent Amazon reviewer said, “This is an incredibly powerful book written as if the author is chatting to you about his own life, struggles and experiences during his ongoing walk with God. It is a very real and honest book with bible verses to back up what the author is sharing about. Personally this book is having a big impact on me and my faith in God. I would recommend to anyone to buy this book if you want to deepen your relationship with God at whatever stage you are in your walk. Imagine the impact this book could have on your life….”

Another reviewer said ‘A wonderful story of faith and dedication overcoming all obstacles. Full of practical advise and wise instruction. The book invites the reader to ‘dream dreams’ and to live out vision with tenacity and determination. A good hearty read.’ (Pastor Paul Hallam)
