Bloggers Share Their Proudest Posts [Part I]

Nichole of In These Small Moments said it best, “Blog posts are like kids — too hard to choose [a favorite].” Amen to that, sister.

While reviewing the titles of all 536 posts on my blog, I instantly recognized the titles published with pride, vulnerability, and bravery. How could I not, the deep stuff sticks. If I had to choose a proudest blog post, I’d choose Today I Quit My Job where I detailed the long journey toward quitting a job that never suited me in favor of my family, who always has.

I know you’ve blogged in the wee small hours of your quiet house while everyone you loved slept soundly. You shared the details of your painful past, your hopes for a brighter tomorrow, and the desperate fear that comes along with gratitude for how far you’ve come. You’ve blogged drunk, through tears, deep sobs, and blurred eyes. You’ve blogged in fits of anger and hovered over the “publish” button. You’ve told the truth. You’ve celebrated personal victories and felt the loving embrace of online support. You’ve cleansed your soul through writing.

I asked the blogosphere to share their proudest posts and share they did! In fact, the response was so great I’m breaking up the Proudest Post series into two parts.

Today I share Part I, 17 posts from bloggers who shared their stories with bravery and pride.
