Friend Of The Week – Michelle


Do you enjoy meeting bloggers who uplift you, exhort you, encourage you, and impact the way you live your life? It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Michelle Morin – the blogger behind Living Our Days!

Michelle is a faith-based blogger and home-schooling mama who lives out her days in the countryside of Maine with her beloved husband, sons, and adorable but incorrigible St. Bernard!

She believes that “the way we live our days will be, after all, the way we live our life” (Annie Dillard), so she faithfully teaches Sunday School, shares faith-based books and words of encouragement on her blog, cares for her family, and gardens.

Her best advice for faith bloggers comes from J.I. Packer:

Go deep in personal worship; write to hit hearts; write from a sense of calling.”

To learn more about Michelle, check out this wonderful profile at Mary-anderling Creatively!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you bless Michelle day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourself, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

    Thanks for hosting, hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for hosting! My best advice for fellow bloggers is:

    Respond to comments (I do it right there in the comment column so that other readers can read it or join in the conversation).

    If a commenter has a blog, visit that blog and leave a comment (I see lots of bloggers who aren’t exactly overwhelmed with a great number of comments, and yet they don’t take the time to connect with their readers).

    Make it easy for people to comment. Some commenting systems are not commenter friendly. If a person has to be signed up with Google+ or Facebook in order to comment, that’s going to rule out a lot of people. If a person has to use a password or login in order to comment, that is going to put off a lot of people who can’t be bothered. And don’t get me started on the “captcha” things that are more like vision tests. Don’t make your readers have to work so hard to leave a comment.

      Thanks for sharing Jean – great tip!
      I know there are lots of times I want to leave comments, only to find that I can’t because the ONLY option they have is Facebook or Google Plus. Captcha is also impossible for anyone who has trouble seeing (I know I can’t make out the characters half of the time!)
      Have a great weekend!

    Hi Ramona!

    I hope fall is showing up where you live! It’s finally appearing in the south! Yay!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Pam says:

    Thank you for hosting! I’m looking forward to meeting new-t0-me bloggers! 🙂 Advice to bloggers? Since I have yet to figure it all out…LOL Make it as easy as possible for others to comment on your blog and to follow. AND, make sure to leave thoughtful comments on their blogs and in response to their comments on yours.

  5. Helen Fern says:

    Great party!! Visited a few blog posts (some great stuff!) – Thanks for hosting!

  6. Happy Friday Ramona!!
    Thanks for hosting each and every week :))

  7. meowmeowmans says:

    Thank you for hosting Friendship Friday, Ramona. We sure are glad you are our friend! 🙂

  8. Thistle says:

    Thanks so much for hosting!!

  9. I have to agree with you and Jean about comments. It has happened many times that I either can’t find a place to leave a comment, or it’s so hard to do it. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who has trouble with Captcha! LOL!

    Thanks for hosting!
