Blogging Challenge!

This is my first experience with the student blogging challenge, and this is the first post that I have had to write for the blogging challenge. The first challenge has started, so I have to tell everyone why they should visit my blog!

My blog is great for many reasons. First, I am from Iowa, so anyone who reads this might get a different perspective on people from Iowa. Unlike the common misconception, we do have malls in Iowa (yes, I have been asked if we have malls in Iowa). Also, there is more stuff than corn, and Iowa is in the United States although many people from the United States could not find Iowa on a map.

Second, I enjoy politics, and I am not afraid to share my thoughts. Therefore, anyone who reads my blog will have the opportunity to either agree or disagree with me if they so desire. I have firm viewpoints, but I also love to hear the other side of the story because it forces me to think deeply about different situations.

Last, but not least, I am a Christian, so my posts will be written with a Christian worldview, which some people may not be familiar with. I am not afraid to say what I think about certain situations, but I also will not condemn people for their beliefs.

Everyone who read this post should now be highly educated on reasons why they should read my blog.
