Audience

I have been continuing to think through how I want to use this blog.  What do I really want to do with it?  The more and more I think about it, the more I keep coming back to one thing.  Who is reading?  I can look at the cool little stat tracker stuff and it tells me people are reading it.  But who?  This is huge.  Any time you speak or write, you try to make sure you contextualize your message appropriately based on who is listening or reading.  This is tough, because I just do not know my audience.  Without it, I feel crippled.

  1. Being in a relationship with God is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens
    you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff– including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see. This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin.

    Happy Fall!

  2. Ah. You’ve hit the wall that many bloggers do. It’s very normal. But it’s also an opportunity to create a new vision for your blog. So, the real question isn’t (in this instance) who is your audience but what do you want from your blog? Is it to create dialogue, to market your church, to win souls for Christ or are you doing this for self-expression? None of those are wrong reasons, but I suspect the reason you’re struggling is because you don’t really have a purpose or a strategy for your blog.
