I am getting closer to 2,000 followers, which is incredible.
Shout Out To Email Followers: I always wait to share milestones until I reach the number with WordPress followers, but I’ve been surprised at the number of people who have decided to follow me through email notifications. I tend to post quite a bit weekly, so the fact people are kind enough to allow me to fill up their email space is amazing. Thank you!
Which is all the more reason why I want to discuss this.
About a month ago, I had asked people for their input on the blog. I had received people sharing what they liked on the blog and wished to see more of (or to keep).
- More personal stories/life lessons
- Bible Studies/Devotionals
- Community Spotlights / Involvement
For the most part, thankfully, everything I do on my blog my overall audience is okay with.
What I really am interested in are topics, as you may have guessed. I want to know as a believer are there certain topics that you are really interested in or either:
- Desire more discussion on the topic
- It’s a topic you personally struggle with
- Or both
Whenever I can, I try to see what topics the community is interested in or might be interested in. I try to look at topics with Christ’s word being the top priority in making decisions. If you have topics to suggest, remember the primary goal of this blog is to push believers closer to Christ. See Believer Handbook if you are interested in seeing topics already covered.
I really want to work on being aware of what a lot of my readers are concerned about or would like a discussion on.
I’m trying to also find a balance between topics that are meatier (heavy) for believers, and working on including some that are lighter. I encourage all believers to strive for more conviction from the Holy Spirit daily, but as Paul said in scripture, even though believers (those who have believed for a while) should be on solid food, they aren’t. Of course, this excludes newer believers who are on the milk (lighter topics) because they are new.
Something lighter I think I can implement to encourage the community is blog awards. Over the past year, I’ve been blessed for other bloggers to nominate me for awards. I was torn between it being a showcase of awards my blog has been nominated for or using the awards as a way to put the spotlight at the end of the posts on others.
Because the interest is there, I think it might be beneficial, but please let me know your thoughts. 🙂
Thank you again, everyone, for sharing this journey with me and being a part of this ministry God has allowed in blogging.
What kind of topics would you like to see discussed?
