I can hardly believe it, but Single and Sane is a year old! I never planned to become a blogger, but then I never planned to have a Facebook page either. Good grief, it hasn't been that long since I wondered what kind of narcissist a person would have to be to have a personal web page. Yikes!

While it's true that Facebook and Blogger may have each exceeded their quota of narcissists, I have learned that things aren't always what they seem at first glance. Both are really cyber-communities, allowing people to connect online who might never see one another in person. Both allow us open up and share sides of ourselves that most people don't see. Both help us to break down some of the barriers that life puts in our way.

That's the main reason I started Single and Sane. I wanted people to see singleness in a healthy way. I thought there should be a place for both married and single to see that singleness is not a condition to be cured, but a life to be celebrated. As a follower of Christ, I know that it is in Him that I live, and move, and have my being. I know that it is in Christ, and in Christ alone, that I can be made whole. I want everyone to know the wholeness that only He can bring.



  1. Happy blogiversary and congratulations! I see a TON of women who blog and their blogs are centralized on their married life with children, which is fine. But sometimes I feel like there are so many moms and wives out there blogging that people like you get lost in the mix. So I'm really glad I came across your site. You do a great job!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Lauren!

  3. way to go, margaret!! one year, amazing!

    i was like you and thought bloggers were crazy
    people who dribbled silly info about themselves
    . . . wait, that sounds just like my blog!

    yours, on the other hand, has been consistently
    informative, encouraging, and FUNNY!

  4. That's funny, Lea. I did think most bloggers were a little, um, odd.

    Of course now that I'm one of "them" I know better. ;D

  5. Happy Anniversary!!! Isn't it amazing what a little blogging can do for your life? Your soul even?

    I'm so glad you decided to delve into the "bloggy world". Your posts have really blessed me.


  6. Happy Blogiversary! It is amazing how this sucks you in, isn't it? And I agree ... it is SO MUCH MORE than a narcissitic exercise ... though it has those moments, I must say. Once I found blogging, though, I was DONE with Facebook. I only have so much time to waste in a day!

  7. SML - Thanks for the sweet comment!

    Jenners - Oh. So that's why I can't update my status anymore...except to link to my blog. I guess that would be one of those narcissistic moments you were talking about. Dang.

  8. Happy Anniversary and I do appreciate a blog by a single Christian woman that is positive.
