This blog is powerful. It has the potential to do a lot of good. And it is doing a lot of good! You see, I have been able to open a lot of doors for myself and for others, get in touch with friends and family, attract the attention of a few handsome gents, find my niche as a writer (you can do that in 2013!) and also express my testimony of Jesus Christ. And when it comes to people reading my stuff, all I’ll say now (while hoping to not come across as arrogant and also being fully aware that I may run out of creativity tomorrow) is this:
PEOPLE. ARE. READING.
(28 days, 38 countries, but who’s counting?)
So yes, this blog is good, great, excellent, beautiful, invigorating, et cetera. They need a new word for the potential of this blog. (I’ll probably come up with one soon. Stay tuned.)I would be ignorant if I overlooked the potential it has to do a lot of bad, too. Like, I can’t get SO caught up in it that I don’t go help a friend pack up before a move (which I told her I would do and was 3 hours tardy). Or talk about it all the time (I have improved and repented, but still am not perfect). Or think I’m the next big shot (the thought has crossed my mind once or twice but then I looked in the mirror at my unkempt hair and ate another bite of my cold spaghettios). So to wrap up this paragraph, I’ll just say that I NEED to be careful about this blog!
(Oh, right, I need to make it relevant to the reader as well.) You should care because Katherine’s epiphany involves you too! You may not have a blog. But most people today have a Facebook, or an email, or some other form of social media. And those things can be good! And I personally am glad you have one or you wouldn’t be reading this right now 🙂 But I digress. Let me wrap it up in a cute little phrase that could become the next big meme or may be relayed in some Mia Maid’s class in Timbuktu:
You have a Facebook. Don’t let your Facebook have YOU!
And NOW, let’s get to why I used “sexy” in the title. The LDS Church (and other denominations, religions, affiliations!) teaches that sex is a powerful tool. For good. And for bad. (let me redirect you to a link where I further expound upon this topic and simultaneously increase my own traffic). So make sure you use your social media of choice (and your own physical body) for GOOD!
(look at the title!)
And although our lines of propriety may be different, we all need to have one. I have further ideas/resources available to help us keep in control, but want to guarantee that you keep coming back so I will leave you wanting more with that cliffhanger…
Your Blog is Sexy! But don’t let it become TOO Sexy!
The scripture which I will reference momentarily is NOT the first time I have used it (good readers pay attention when [good] writers repeat because it is screaming “EMPHASIS!”)
O be wise. What can I say more?
(if you click on that link, it will take you to not only the scripture, but also to a great Conference talk given on the subject. Missionary work!)
And now let me embed another address about making sure we stay in charge of our media consumption:
Wow. Just wow. Elder Bednar is a spiritual, powerful, and courageous leader.
I am eternally grateful for his counsel.
So now what?
THE END (maybz..)
Phew! That was a long post. But I do think that the Lord helped me with it.
And more than just a little, know what I’m sayin?
Off to the grocery store for this girl!
Sayonara. And NOT just to my Japanese fans…
PS. I ain’t running out of things to write about any day soon. Just sayin’
