Here's the drill- I don't feel like I am making an impact or reaching those I set out to reach. Some days I feel like I am writing for no one except myself. So, the short version is that I will have to change my approach and / or stop blogging.
This new attempt will be launched next week.
In the meantime:
I have met some awesome people on this cyber-journey, and some I would even call friend.
First up, every now and then you read something that moves you, disturbs you, makes you feel uncomfortable; or in churchspeak...makes you feel convicted.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): I will run an article by one of the most popular pastors-preachers-church leaders around, Francis Chan. I would like you to read the article carefully, and comment. Tell me what you think.
Thursday through Saturday: One of my cyber-friends Kenny Silva has started a series on mid-year life-transforming resolution or challenges. With his permission, I will pass a few of these challenges on to you. Again, tell me what you think.
Next week: We will begin a new series, presented in a different fashion. I plan to use the same posting format of writing and publishing every weekday, and perhaps on Saturday. No new articles on Sunday.
What do I want from you?
What I need is some sense that I am not writing to and for myself alone. If that turns out to be the case, then I can just put it in a journal.
So, I need:
- Anything to let me know you guys are out there.
- Tell your friends. Encourage them to share.
- Encourage them to sign up to receive new posts for the blog by email.
We begin the journey anew next week!
And, a special thanks to all those who have stuck with me so far...
7-5-11 Addendum: Excellent suggestion from one of our readers. I will actively post Monday through Friday. No posting on Sunday. Saturday...we shall see. ;)
