Another year is coming to a close. I’ve had this blog for nearly ten years now. For most of this time, writing has just been a hobby. I’ve written only when I’ve felt inspired and have had the time.
I believe it was a bit over a year ago when I realized that I write more than anyone I know except for my published author friend. In recognizing this, I have been considering how I might make the most of this skill. Slowly over the course of time, I’ve tried to improve my blog and prepare for potential growth.
At the beginning of the year, I made a goal to publish a new article every week. I ended up only publishing only 33 new articles, well short of 52. The primary reasons for this are the fact that I moved to Nashville in May, and this fall I planned and prepared for a trip to India (which didn’t materialize). I also spent a significant amount of time behind the scenes trying to make some technical improvements to my blog. Finding time is a challenge for me in my current situation. I work full time from home, by myself, so a large part of my free time I spend out being social.
As when enter into 2016, I again hope to publish a new article each week. I also just purchased a video camera, so I may well experiment creating some “vlogs” (video web log). I have also been considering attempting to turn my course “Follow and Share” into a video format. I am additionally hoping to expand my subscribers, specifically through the blog email list. So if you haven’t subscribed yet, please do so.
I believe my most popular article this year was “Are “Dones” a Major Warning Sign for the Church?“. As always, remember that I have over four hundred articles published on my website. You can browse through these by category, tags, searches, and more. Let me know what topics you would like for me to write about in the future. Thank you!
