Checking my blog pulse

I'm a rookie blogger and I'm sure that I've made my share of rookie blogger mistakes. One example is that I added FeedBlitz to my blog so readers could subscribe to get updates via e-mail not realizing that this was no longer a free service if added to your blog after January 1 this year. Consequently, I have removed that widget but will try to find another similar service to replace it.

This blog was initiated by the church that I serve as a way for the church family to get to know the staff better. Each of the 7 of us on staff who are writing a blog have taken a different approach and I chose to make mine somewhat personal, writing from my experiences, about what I've learned recently and about the questions that I have. I've also broadened my intended audience to those connected to me in various ways other than through Christ United Methodist Church. I enjoy writing so I might do this even if no one read it but I 'd value your feedback. One of my objectives is that this blog would be a conversation between readers on the the topic of the blog posts but I haven't been particularly successful in facilitating that.

Please take a minute to share your thoughts with me on how the blog is going so far; I've included a few questions here to prompt your thinking:
  • What do you like?
  • What do you dislike?
  • Why do you read this?
  • How did you come to connect with this blog?
  • Are the issues relevant?
  • What would make this blog more useful to you?
