Why blog? I’ve had people ask what I hope to accomplish here. Mostly, I just want to talk about things that I’m interested in or passionate about and things that I’ve learned and how I’ve seen God work. I’ve read lots of blogs. Honestly, after reading through many in the last week, I realized something. I don’t really want to be a “blogger”. I would rather just write. I want to sit down and ask God, “What should I write today?” and type out the answer. If I’m honest, the answer will include things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable. It will be about making much of Him.
Bloggers have to worry about SEO, chasing trends and writing about things people would be most interested in given the current climate regarding politics, religion and current events. What will get the most clicks? What is most likely to be shared?
I don’t want to chase after trendy topics that aren’t genuinely a part of what I would naturally share. I want to keep this space one that is about moving forward and not dwelling on the negative. It’s about celebrating the good and being honest about my struggles. I think that’s what writers do even if it doesn’t show up easily in search engines. A writer who blogs, rather than a blogger who writes.
Thank you so much for reading!
