About That Whole Blogging Thing …

Sep 21, 2010

I took one look at my calendar and realized: It’s time for another short hiatus from blog drafting and posting. You know how much I love hanging out with you, but the next couple weeks already look consuming. Between taping a radio interview, speaking at a writers conference, teaching my local writers group, taking a short weekend in the mountains with a good friend, and preparing for several other upcoming speaking events within the next few months, I need to make sure I reserve some of the best of me for my family. They deserve it.

While I’m tackling these projects, I’ll also be contemplating a change with this site. In talking with and observing other bloggers and blog readers, it appears fewer people have the time or desire to keep up with blog reading. Understandable. I’m in the same situation, and can’t remember the last time I went down the list on my Google Reader.

So I’m considering investing more of my heart and time in a warm and personal monthly newsletter. My heart’s desire is to connect with and encourage you. The newsletter wouldn’t be long, but it would keep you apprised of upcoming speaking events, publishing developments, family updates and, most importantly, insights into the truths God is teaching me through his Word and simply living.

Since what I write and communicate is in large part about you, please tell me what you think. Do you read the blog regularly? Is it helpful? Would you prefer a monthly inspiration/newsletter delivered to your inbox? What can I best do to encourage you today?

While I’m taking a couple weeks away from posting, I’ll be chewing and praying on this potential new direction. Your perspective is valuable to me, and I look forward to hearing from you.

In the meantime, live well my friends.

    I enjoy reading your posts………..well,,,,, most of the time. That is unless they are painfully convicting. 🙂 But I certainly understand the time management thing. A monthly newsletter would certainly be a good compromise.

      Thanks, Jerolyn. My apologies for the painful convicting part. 🙂 If it makes you feel any better, I'm talking to myself far more than anyone else! I'll be posting next week, so stay tuned!

    I am missing the encouragment I often found in your blogs. I would love to be on the list if you decide to do a monthly newsletter.

    • Michele Cushatt

      Thanks, Susan. What a wonderful message. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a note and offer the encouragement. I'll be back to posting next week, so stay tuned. And a newsletter is in the works, too. 🙂 I'll add you to the list!
