New Address Everything Else Remains The Same. #ChristianBlogger

I have wanted for a while to switch from wordpress to blogger.  I had used it in the past, and I thought it would be easier to handle.  I didn't realize everything had changed, and I am going to have to learn this new platform.  Oh well.

I am not sure what I screwed up on wordpress.  I got a message from google that I had been blacklisted for malware.  While I am good enough to set up a blog, I am not slick enough to have any idea how to fix that.  I have no clue what I did, or how to fix.  I just picked up and moved out.  I guess that will show them.  

I started all this a while ago, in the hope that maybe a few people would read it.  I never really thought I would go viral.  Don't get me wrong, I would love to go viral.  I just don't see that happening.  I will just keep typing along, and hopefully I can help a few folks.  

When I talk to people about my book reviews, they always seem to ask if I get paid for it.  No, I do not get paid for those reviews.  Most of the reviews I have done were through the publisher.  They provide a complimentary copy of the book, and then I write a review of what I have read.  There are a couple of books that I read, and just wanted to share with others.  Those ones I bought the book myself, and I never regretted.

One of the benefits of my new home is the ability to host ads.  I don't think it will make me rich, but I suppose I can tell folks that I run ads, and that is how I am "paid" for my reviews.  I guess it sounds good anyway.

I have been trying very hard to increase my readership.  I hate to do it, because I usually shun away from self-promotion.  I truly believe that God has giving me a gift for the written word.  I hope that you feel the same way too.  I don't run ads for my blog.  The only way that I will ever get my message out is if my readers share my thoughts with their friends.  I have placed share buttons at the bottom of this page, and I appreciate each and every share.  If we were to meet, then I would give you a great big hug.  Ok.  That isn't really true.  I am exceptionally awkward when I meet people for the first time, but I am definitely thankful.

Well, someone is calling me outside.  I guess I have to smash open geode or something.  Watching them try was so much more fun.  Take care.  God bless you and yours.
