For the last 2 weeks of the year I will doing a countdown of the 10 most popular blogs of 2011 between my 2 blogs. Let me say there is an honorable mention. It goes to one of my last blogs of 2010. If it was in 2011 it would have been #3, so close. Honorable mention goes to.... Good blog topic?
Onto the countdown... #10 is my blog from March 1, 2011. I often wonder about the way I blog. I voiced those thoughts in this post and I guess people liked reading about it. So without further ado, here it is.
Something else I've been wondering. Should I be changing this blog? Is it okay that I'm just writing about random things that cross my mind? Should it be more focused on my family life or is that a little self centered? Should it be more about God? I mean I have another one for Bible Study things and I do mention God when it seems appropriate on this one. I could talk about Ben counting to 20, with help, or saying "XYZ now I know my ABC's." (It comes out Now ah nee cee) I could talk about giving Ben 3 time outs tonight and him protesting over the books I chose to read him. But is that interesting and meaningful blog reading?
The other blog is a little more time consuming, but I like the challenge of looking up Scripture and interpreting it, making it mean something right here and now. Sometimes, I am better than others about that, but that is my goal. Something that will make the reader think and hopefully help them grow in their faith. But that one isn't really personal. Is that okay? Should that one contain more personal anecdotes? Is it too plain? Shouldn't blogs be interesting and challenging both?
Basically, am I doing this the right way?
