August 11, is my blogaversary. It is a made up word composed of two words. One Blog and the other Anniversary to make blogaversary.
I have been blogging since 2004. That’s a total of 11 years.
Actually before that, but this was the first time I didn’t used LiveJournal (kept like a journal blog on my two hobbies) and went to my own hosted domain. I then blogged about two hobbies of mine. Collecting business cards and tracking currency on Where’s George. (I no longer do those hobbies)
I believe around 2010 or so, I added doing Christian Blogging on that old domain. In 2012, I lost the domain name I had since 2004, cardeologist.com.
Then, I registered this domain that you are viewing the blog on now in October 2012. I imported all the blog entries, but I deleted all blog post that were about business cards or Where’s George, but the ones where I explained why I stopped them.
I am glad I had back up copies of all the post that I did want to keep and save. I kept the Bible and Christian Ones. I also kept any recipe, family oriented or safety tip ones, etc.
I turned my blog over to Him and allowed Him to use me in it. I want to give God the glory for all that He has done in that time. The increase in traffic and readers. I cannot do this without Him. He is the one that inspires me to write on here. He is the one that gives me what I feel led that needs to be shared on here.
Today I have over 1,100 blog post live. Plus, I have tons of ideas that I feel led to blog on. I have also been blogging on Christian Ministries, Christian Businesses, Recipes, Family Stuff and even attractions to take your family on top of Christian Bible Lessons.
My name is Steve Patterson and I am saved through the blood of Jesus Christ. I have been blogging at Courageous Christian Father since 2012, however, I have been blogging since around 2004. I listen to nothing but Christian Music. I work as a graphic designer.
