Since I’ve started this goal of posting at least once per day since April I’ve come up with quite a few different ideas for posts and series that I think might create some good discussion. The problem is, summer is upon us. For those of us in youth ministry summer usually means one thing: unpredictability. If you are like me, when you come back from a mission trip, retreat, camp, or vacation, you automatically hit “Mark All as Read” for the 1,000 unread items in your RSS reader. That doesn’t make for the best discussion.
So, I’m thinking of scaling back the blog over the summer and not putting as much effort into summer content. I’ll keep posting quotes and links like I’ve been doing on the weekends, but maybe move that to weekdays. Maybe I’ll do more personal reflections of how ministry and life are going. I’ll probably keep going with my discussion on seminaries while that is still a fairly fresh topic.
I was thinking about scaling back the posting to just three days a week, probably Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I’m just trying to think what will be the best way to keep the momentum I’ve built going without wasting some good discussion topics while people are too busy to chime in.
What about you? Do you approach your blog differently over the summer? Do you read blogs differently over the summer?
