img_0425.JPGI have been blogging for a while now, since November 2005 to be exact. I really enjoy it, but I am still trying to figure out how to use my blog and what purpose it has. I have tried a few different things like Saturday Night At The Concert Hall and My Life Story, but I either lose interest in the series posts, or just feel that they are not going anywhere so I move on to something else. Maybe that is OK, maybe it is good to move on to other things, to start other conversations, to open up new topics of postings. The other thing is that traffic is pretty low on my blog, wondering if that is an issue or not, I guess it depends on why I am posting eh!

Anyway, I get excited about what this blog could become and get inspired by other postings I read on other blogs, but I have found it hard to keep up, to keep it enticing and interesting. I am in no way going to stop posting or end this blog, I just wanted to communicate where I am at with it. I have appreciated your comments and thoughts on the postings, they are encouraging. I guess I want to post for my benefit and also the benefit of you, the reader.

Lately I have been spending a lot of time on Twitter and am loving the interaction and freedom in that. If you don’t have a twitter account I would highly encourage you to join the community. Once again though I am still trying to figure out how I should be using it and for what purpose. It is great to connect with friends, to learn from others, to follow people who are changing the world and to build new friendships and join new communities. I don’t want to be doing these things aimlessly, I want do be doing them with a purpose from withing who I am.

Anyway, thanks for listening to my thoughts, rants, passions and ideas, I appreciate it. I am thinking of doing a series for Lent.  Traditionally Lent is a season (40 day’s) of fasting. I am still praying about what I am going to fast from for Lent, but I also would like to do daily posts for Lent, posts of what God is saying to me and what I feel he is saying about Him. I am praying about how this could look, I will keep you posted, or I will just start posting and Twittering on it.

Anyway, I have been away from the girls for a few day’s and just got home, so I am going to sign off and get cuddling, it’s bed time. Thanks and have a great week.

  1. Hey, hey…until I started reading your blog, I felt the pressure to have these huge, sweeping entries. I think I said this to you before but I really like your style of saying what you mean and leaving it at that. I read regularly (thank you google reader)…I like the longer posts but I learned from you that an entry can be effective, funny, challenging and/or sweet without being so very long. Thanks and I am reading…it’s nice to keep up with you.

    i always enjoy your more personal posts. i know you don’t want to blog for no reason, but if i’m honest, if there are several “message-y” or justice posts in a row without any personal content from you, i tend to lose interest. even those posts, i always prefer them if you can tell me why it impacts you personally, and not just something copied from somewhere else.

    i am still waiting for the continuation of the concert posts and the story of your journey with your dad.i think those are really worth writing about. but that’s just me.
    love you

  3. When I first was thinking about a blog (address linked above) I was concerned that a lot of people would be reading my private thoughts (which is why, hi-tech me, had kept a print diary for so, so, so long) but after starting on the blog, I realized I didn’t have to worry about that, I get very little readers, and that’s just fine with me. I can post about whatever I want, and no one cares, because no one sees it!
