- writing blog content is different from all other writing
- creating and using a standard template for each type of post (e.g., book reviews) provides helpful structure
- timely topics attract readers, especially those in the current news cycle
- posts with the greatest hit counts are, almost exclusively, those shared by others via social media
- blogging can be/become a spiritual discipline

If I had set out to write a blog post once a day for a year, I am not sure I would have succeeded. Originally, I intended to post daily for 100 days. Once I reached 100 days, I found that writing content on a daily basis had become routine.
Blogging is not something anyone does in isolation; blogging provides connectivity. Connectivity matters as community is an essential aspect of the Christian faith. While traditional or face-to-face community remains strong, virtual community is increasingly important. In writing about matters of faith that matter, I am thankful for the many opportunities it has afforded me to interact with the larger community.
I rarely ask for feedback. If you are a regular visitor to this blog or someone stopping by for the first time, I would welcome your feedback.
- Has my writing been helpful to you on your journey of faith? If so, how?
- What would you like me to consider doing differently (including any topical suggestions)?
