It's been a little more than two and a half years since the decision to get serious about creating a family blog. If you are a regular reader/follower of TheHighamFamily.com, you know that when we set out to do this, our desire and hope was to not only share our family adventures and experiences as we raise our family but to offer resources, tools and encouragement to all families.
While we've done our best to juggle a very busy family/ministry life, the blog and vlog, it's been a bit of a challenge. There have been weeks where it was too much to try and get a blog posted. Though we wanted to give both the blog and the vlog our attention had to remain fixed on what we were doing with the family. After all, we've send from the very beginning, our family comes first.
But the feedback we receive from our followers is always very encouraging. This past Christmas, while hosting the Christmas Door Challenge, we were touched by how many friends from our community talked with us about the doors, telling us they voted and were cheering on the kids. Those moments are special, and remind us that you are out there, and we appreciate that.
As 2017 rolls in, we've taken the first couple of weeks to evaluate the blog and ask God what he wants us to do. We want to continue, but we want to make sure it's still something we feel God is leading us to do. So as we come to the end of January, I think it's safe to say that we're going to keep this going!
However, as we go forward into 2017, we are doing so with a realistic approach. We plan to keep our family at the forefront of all we do, so when life gets a little busy, we might not post as frequently. But as much as we can, we hope to share as what we're doing and what God is teaching us. We are also continuing with the Life in the Higham House vlog. So look for new vlog posts coming to our YouTube channel in the next week or so. While we're still not ready to start a daily vlog, we do plan to share more during the week.
We always hoped that the blog would be a place where families could find resources, tools, life-hacks, encouragement, and ideas. At the end of the 2016, we began making some changes to the blog by adding a few new pages that focused on specific topics. You'll see those topics below. Over the course of 2017, we will develop and grow these topic pages with resources that we create, activities that we've done, life-hacks we use, and projects we're working on in the Higham House. We hope that these topic pages become a helpful tool for you.
So where do we go from here?
Well, we move forward, and embrace the new year! New content, new vlogs, new activities, and new resources are coming your way!
Thank you, for all your support! We really do appreciate all the encouraging words.
