Re-Runs

Welcome back to another week in quarantine. I am afraid not much has been happening at home worth writing about — and sorry to say — I am feeling a little bit lack in the motivational bucket for blogging this week. Over the last two and a half years of mittonmusings.com, I’ve written just shy of 95 000 words. Not to mention the countless hours of research and tweaking to get just the right photos and just the right word. I’ve learned lots about technology, social media, hashtags and all the other stuff that goes along with “blogging”. But — a girl should get a holiday now and then, yes? So, let’s pretend it is summer holidays and all you get is re-runs.

Here are the links for some of my favourite posts — perhaps they will be “new” to you or inspire you differently this time around. Feel free to share them around, follow along or check out my socials for more… see ya’ll next week!

  1. Lost Socks… and How to Love Them
  2. How to be a Superhero
  3. Childhood Chocolate Chip Cookies
  4. They Say that an Elephant Never Forgets
  5. Emily
  6. Spiritual Awakenings at the Grand Canyon
  7. Why Disney is Better than the Bible
  8. Blogging from the Heart
  9. Rainbows
  10. Feelin’ all the Feels

An Update from Us

By now, many of you have received numerous emails and notifications from your school board, local grocery store, coffee shop, government official and maybe even church body, about what they are doing to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you and your community during this COVID-19 Crisis. We bloggers have the unique advantage that our community is always online. But, we are community nonetheless. In my short time blogging, I have come to know many of you as “friends” as well as followers. I have been encouraged by your comments and shares and likes. True, we are socially distant, but we are certainly not isolated. Technology has allowed us the benefit of meeting together each week, sharing and growing as a community. We’ve never had to stop learning because of our distances apart.

And so, this is my message to you, during these unprecedented times, on behalf of mittonmusing.com. Obviously, I don’t have to reduce my hours or close my doors during this time, and I’m not losing revenue because this is not that kind of blog. What I am doing, is reaching out to encourage you in these weird and uncertain days, to assure you that even across the internet, people care! My feeds are flooded with posts about small businesses and live feeds and Bible verses — we are doing our part to share and uplift, especially in these tough times.

Please know that I am thinking about you… my community all over the world. In your dark places, and in times of fear, as well as the times where you’ve done your part and been a light to someone else’s world. As you go into this next week, I hope you’ll stay tuned in to mittonmusings. Our last (-ish) colouring party post will come out on Tuesday, and we’ve got tricks and tips up our sleeves to help you pass some time during your “self isolation”. Maybe you are an introvert like me and are doing great all alone at home — encourage others with some of our Blessings… or try one of our book reviews. We’ve mused about lots of things over the years, and maybe this blog was made for just such a time as this.

Keep watching our socials for updates and news!

Oh! I almost forgot! An update on our “I Still Believe” movie… our winner was chosen (congratulations!) but the virus has closed down the cinemas for now… However… the internet strikes again!! Starting March 25th, they will be releasing “I Still Believe” on demand — which means our whole community will be able to view this great movie! Apple TV, Amazon and YouTube etc. will be streaming it for a short period of time… so stay tuned or watch for it on your favourite outlet! If there has ever been a time for a hope and faith filled family movie — it’s now when you’re stuck at home with all the kids!

Stay safe. Wash your hands. Know that God is in control and He loves you. Be at peace, share joy, and thanks for following the adventure, as part of my community!

Happy Blog-A-Versary!

Hurray! mittonmusings.com has been online for a full year now! We launched in February 2018 and are celebrating our first birthday! How exciting! Thank you, dear readers, for being a huge part of the adventure! After all, what’s a blog without followers?!

Come join me on this adventure! (Photo: Pexels)

What a year it has been… we have learned so much about the big, bad world of blogging and all that the great internet highway has to offer. We have navigated the social media world and connected with the techno wizards. It has been a fun (and yes, sometimes frustrating) experience as we learned editing, media building and even launched an email course!

We’ve met some friends. We have shared some posts as guest bloggers to others and others have shared with us. We’ve narrowed our niche and shared our faith journeys. And just as any other one year old, we have learned and grown!

This past week was Random Acts of Kindness day, and what better way to celebrate your anniversary than sharing with others… so we are happy to announce that mittonmusings.com will be launching another exciting e-course!! But before that… we will be opening up for a second round of 30 days of Blessings!!

If you missed this e-course the first time through, then be sure to sign up this time!! Or maybe you enjoyed it so much the first time, you are ready to do it again!! It’s the perfect way to feel blessed and bless others! 30 days of daily email prompts to help you do just that! And it is our absolutely free gift to you! Simply sign up at the 30 days of blessings page and await your first email! (We launch Monday… so sign up today!)

Thank you again for being a part of our blog-a-versary!! Enjoy our gift to you!!
