  1. Thank you for sharing your heart. I completely understand where you are coming from. In fact, as I was reading, I was thinking, I could have written this. I’m very happy to have found your blog and will continue to support it as I can. Thank you! It looks great!

  2. It was wonderful to find you through the Thrive Thursday link-up! I started my blog almost 4 months ago and am considering monetizing for many of the same reasons you mentioned above. I am also a Christian blogger, but many have suggested not writing about my faith to attract more viewers and to ultimately make money. I refuse to sell out so it is a blessing to see a Christian blog that is doing what I hope to. I would love to have you share your heart with my growing community at the Saturday Soiree Blog Party @ I am a new follower of yours and I look forward to reading more of your content!

    1. Sarah Ann I think it’s absolutely possible to write about and share your faith while monetizing your blog. While I do write a lot about home tips and family, my faith is a central tone in my voice and my posts here reference my Christian faith. While a lot of my readers are fellow believers, there are many who aren’t. I’m sure I could be making more money and driving in more traffic if I strayed from some of my guidelines, but I don’t and I really feel like God has blessed this blog as a result. So don’t be afraid to monetize your blog if it’s faith focused, pray and ask God to lead and guide you through the journey. Best wishes to you ๐Ÿ™‚
