Help me NOT turn into a self-centered blogging suckerfish
Ok, I’m just gonna be real with this.
I’m planning on using this blog for a long time. As an introvert, I feel I can process stuff a lot better when I type, and when I’m bouncing things off a community of people I know (or am getting to know), it often takes me to sweet places of introspection that I never would have considered by myself. I’m hoping this is also true for many of you. Some make fun of blogs, but they help me wrestle with things, not alone. That’s the beautiful thing about community, even if an element of it has to be virtual.
But I also don’t want to be “that guy” who gets sucked into selling himself by blogging about mindless self-promotion all the time.
I’d like this to be a place where similar-minded people can intersect real issues in the real world with what we believe about God, our worship, our church, our mission, and our Gospel.
As silly as this may sound as we’re surrounded by a world of self-serving technology, I want to serve you on here, and I want us to serve each other.
So this might be a shot in the dark, but since you are the ones I gladly interact with, I need your help by answering these two questions as honestly as you can…
- What would you like to see on this blog?
- What would you not like to see on this blog?
This blog will be shaped by your thoughtful responses. I’m thankful for those of you who continue to read and contribute. Game on.
