Finding my voice

12 01 2013

As I look back on 2012, I am disappointed in my number of blog posts. I know I am suppose to be writing. God has clearly impressed that upon me. It is also discouraging to only have 28 followers and I hate looking at my stats page which usually is single digits.

I know all of the spiritual answers:
-If it helps just one person it is worth it
-It is not about numbers, Jesus had large crowds but few followers.

I also understand the writer’s burn, where you feel the pain of not writing.

So here I sit between a rock and a hard place: Needing to write but being discouraged by the number of people reading what I write.

Will you help me? Can you recommend my blog to others? I have a personal goal of getting to 100. It would be an encouragement to me and help me be motivated to write.

I always love feedback. It helps me get sharper.

In addition, I have updated the discipleship curriculum. Please take a look and let me know what you think.  You can find it on my Discipleship/Mentorship page

As far as the content, I am really mindful of writing what God leads me to write but sometimes God is silent and I am willing to write on topics of interest or issues you wrestle with.

Since the world did not end in 2012, I look forward to making this blog a valuable tool in 2013.

Thanks.

PS. Immediately after this post I will be posting a new post. Today you get a 2 for 1 special:-)

This struggle is one that I, too, have…often. Like you, I know the spiritual answers, but it’s so hard to see those statistics (or lack there of) and still feel motivated to post consistently. Praying with you…for you.

I love reading your blog! It is the only devotional I subscribe to and it reminds me of a church I once knew. 🙂
