Every time I look at that little counter at the bottom right-hand column of my blog and see its disproportionately large number of unique visitors since January 7, 2005, I shudder a little.
I know I’ve fallen off the bottom of Matt Dabbs’ top 25-most-visited bloggers, and that’s okay. I know the views and comments have dropped off since I tried (and failed, thanks to illness) to blog daily through the Bible … and that’s okay, too. I know I have only a fraction of the followers that many even less-visited sites have … yup, okay with me.
And I’m even convinced that the content of this blog probably isn’t as exciting or fresh or topical or current or even as well-written as it used to be. Sorry about that, but you know, you can only say the same things emphatically a certain number of times before you sound like Johnny One-Note.
I don’t mind trying things and failing. It’s how I learn.
What I’m really looking for is a way to express Christ on this blog.
I tried a cooperative blog once – What Would Jesus Do Next? – and it was fun for a while, but it languished.
For several months, I attempted to write fifty-two communion meditations from all over scripture, each pointing to Jesus. Until I got to the gospels and the reality of the task; the complexity of the character of Christ just became too daunting to tackle.
So I’m asking.
All 75,000 of you. (Or whoever’s left!)
What do you suggest?
What resonates with you?
What did you feel blessed by reading?
What did you automatically skip?
What would you like to see through this Eye?
