It’s fitting that my year in review would come 9 days after New Year’s. As I reflect back on my first real attempt to be a blogger, I realize this is the type of blogger I am. When I started out in July, I thought I’d be posting a couple times a week, or at least once a week. Fast forward and I am posting around a once a month! I post when I get inspired. And then only when I have time. Which between the two definitely dwindles down my opportunities. I think good blogs that post frequently are ones that have a scheduled goal they are setting out to blog about, like when my blog-friend Ivy blogged through reading the Bible as a non-believer in 2010. Read the Bible every day, blog about it = regular blogging. Same goes for sports bloggers. Your team plays a game, blog about it = regular blogging. I thought I could do this with my sermons each Sunday, but the videos are never uploaded in time for when I am inspired/have time early in the week, and I don’t like doing a blog post without the video link, so this just hasn’t happened as often as I’d first intended. All in all though, I really have enjoyed blogging the posts that I have, and I do enjoy keeping score of which blogs garner the most hits the day they are posted. For my blog year in review, I’d like to highlight some of my favorite blogs that you may have missed. Since I blog soooo sporadically, I figure it’s easy you could have missed a few of these gems (sarcasm doesn’t always come across well in text), so I thought I’d start your new year out with some reruns:
11.24.11 Being a Dad = Science Fiction – This was the winner for most hits in a day. Makes me feel great about my writing abilities. You only click on things where videos and photos of my cute baby are involved.
10.24.11 The Elephant in the Church Room: Homosexuality – I figured this would be a hot topic and it was. A close second for most hits in a day. I was grateful for the interaction I received at first, but when I posted a reply, the conversation ended. I would love for someone to click, read, and continue the dialogue as I raised some questions that I’d love to hear reaction to.
9.8.11 NFL Prophecy – Fun to look back on my NFL picks. All I have to say is it is a good thing I don’t bet on sports or the Eagles would have made me a very broke man. But hey, I did pick the Lions to be the #6 seed in the playoffs, which they were, which has to be worth something right?
8.30.11 Why I Believe in God. (hint: it’s not because of the Bible) – Look at my provocative title.
My new year’s resolution: Shorter blogs. More blogs. Pick my nose less. Happy New Year.
