2013: My First Post Ever


This post was written in 2013. I am keeping it on the blog for sentimental reasons and to laugh at myself as to what my first blog post ever was in 2013. Enjoy! – Josh, May 10, 2019

The One Thing That Makes Me Different

In a world where there are over 31 million bloggers in the United States alone, why in the world would I want to start a blog? I mean, I am 23 years old, just received my Bachelors degree last year, got married eight months ago, and now I have a daughter on the way. But think with me for a moment. There have probably been numerous people in the same situation that I am in! So why start a blog?

Is there really something else that I can write that hasn’t already been written? Do I really think I am that smart… or witty… to start my own blog that people would actually want to read?

These are all questions I asked myself. All these questions leading to why I shouldn’t write a blog. Then, I came to the conclusion that I should start a blog. “Why?” you ask. Well, thanks for asking.

I have something that no one else has. I have one thing that makes me different than everybody else.

A voice.

Sure. Everyone has a voice. But no one has my voice. See what I did there?

Through this blog, I am going to be posting thoughts on life, ministry, and the pursuit of Godliness. If you are sitting in class right now, relaxing in your office, reading this during your lunch break, or stumbled upon this from Twitter, I hope that these posts are like sitting at Starbucks and grabbing a cup of coffee together.

I don’t have an agenda. I don’t have something I’m trying to sell. I just have my voice.

Whether you’re a student in school, someone just starting your career, a parent or grandparent, Christian or Atheist—my goal is that these posts will challenge your perspective and give you an opportunity to view life in a different way.

I also want to invite you all to comment on my posts, I’d love to hear from you and keep the conversation going online. Underneath the date of each post, you can click “Leave A Comment” and start typing away.

Let’s “travel down this road that we call life” together (yes, that was a reference to the Boy Meets World theme song).

Enjoy the blog. The Waugh Blog. And I look forward to hearing from you soon!
