If you are reading this post, I’m assuming you are one of the people who subscribes to my RSS feed, a loyal reader. As I am in the process of resurrecting the blog, I’m curious:
Why do you read my blog?
(After the last six months of non-blogging, it might be more appropriate to ask, “Why did you read my blog?”)
This whole process of getting back into blogging has not been something I have done spontaneously; I’ve thought about it quite a bit. As I’m trying to be thoughtful about launching back into the blog world I’m curious about what draws my readers back for more.
Basically, I’m trying to narrow down what is most beneficial to the people who read my blog and then focus on that.
So, what is it for you? What keeps drawing you back? Or, what would you like to see more of?
(If you don’t want to drop a comment to answer, email me.)
I don’t remember how I first found your blog – but here’s why I keep coming back for more:
You are a fellow Lutheran in the trenches of youth ministry, and you get it. You get the fact that youth ministry is precious and critical. You know that youth ministry can’t be done the way it’s always been done. I come back for inspiration, for support, and just to keep in contact with someone else who is “of a like mind” as me.
Thanks for the reply, Crystal.
I used to rad your blog a long time ago (like 2005) and stopped probably when you stopped. Then I subscribed again when you were mentioned in some top bloggers list.
Loved it then and would love to see more content coming out.
Paul, thanks for the input. Sorry for the letdown in content lately. It’s on it’s way back.
I forgot that I also reconnected with you through the Rooted conference.
Christocentric, biblical, and honest sometimes hard hitting reflections on youth ministry. Plus…
Techno geek and you are my friend

You value both youth ministry and theology, which is refreshing and encouraging. 🙂 Glad you’re back in the blogging habit!
I hope I’m back in the habit. Give me a few weeks and we’ll see!
