I started out with this blog to be a place to talk about myself - somewhat of an online journal to record my thoughts and feelings and day to day activities. I decided that I also wanted to create posts that help others learn about Christianity, about Christ, and to learn - a somewhat mini Bible study lesson or what have you.
That worked - for awhile. Somewhere along the line, I lost focus and created fewer and fewer posts. I lost the readership I had (which is understandable), and my posts didn't seem to have the content I wanted. I look back now on some of my earlier posts and wish I were creating the same kinds of posts now. I guess I need to sit down and write some good quality posts to publish on my blogs.
A new year is within arm's reach, and with it I hope to rearrange the way I post here. There are lots of topics and ideas that I want to explore in my blog posts, and a few of my goals for posting include:
* Thought provoking postsI won't promise that I will post every day, but I will try to post at least two or three times a week (maybe more), to be more consistant. I will try not to have extremely lengthy posts as I do sometimes now (which could come from big gaps between posts and feeling the need to fill in every detail since the previous post). And, I will try to have my posts more Christ-centered as opposed to me-centered - though that might creep in from time to time as well.
* Bible based posts
* Mini Bible studies
* Character studies
* Spiritual growth discussions
* Topics posted on specific days (i.e. Mondays might be a character study, Wednesday might be about praying or Saturday might be about missionaries)
