Throughout this year, several bloggers will engage in a conversation here and on their blogs — asking questions of each other and responding. Others are absolutely welcome to join the conversation, as well. Learn more about the ladies of Blogversation 2012.
We kicked off this online salon a few weeks back, so the Blogversationists are still getting to know each other and introducing themselves here.
To get a flavor for what each blogger does when she’s really hitting her mark, today’s question is “What is one of your favorite blog posts and why?”
I loved this post I wrote for our 10-year wedding anniversary: 10 marriage lessons learned in 10 years of marriage (and the second half of that post, which I broke up into five “I dos” and five “I don’ts”).
It was an excellent opportunity for me to reflect on what I’d learned in my first decade as a wife, and to celebrate that we still like and love each other. Though it hasn’t all been sunshine and unicorns, I’m grateful we’ve had and continue to have a good partnership. Writing about lessons learned helped me appreciate how far we’ve come as a team.
Once I shared the post, it was fun to see the comments on my blog and on Facebook — friends sharing their own lessons or thanking me for sharing. A few said things like John and I are role models for a good marriage, and I was honored to think that might be true.
As a bonus, the second half of that post features romantic advice one of the Blogversationists, Maria Stuart, gave me when I was in my early 20s. She helped me understand that romance isn’t the big showoffy display once in a while but how your partner treats you every day. That powerful distinction has stayed with me. Thanks, Maria.
