The beginning of a new year is a good time to think about our blogging goals. Here are five thoughts on how you can become a better blogger in 2014!
We need to recognized that we, as individuals, are so much more than our blog. Our souls, those of our family and friends, are infinitely more valuable than any blog post, stat chart or blogging award. We cannot allow our noble mission of writing to become our ‘god’. Because if we do, then the other things in our life will fall to it. And nothing good can come of that. So, we have to develop detachment from this thing we love so much – we have to be willing to pray, to offer up our writing to God, and to be willing to walk away if that is where He calls us.
The funny thing about holy detachment is this – when we place anything in its proper place in relation to God, blogging included – we allow His blessings to reach it more fully. So you may find that, as your detachment increases, so does the quality of your writing. The less ‘wrapped up’ you become in your blogging, the more honest, truthful and humble your writing will become. And that is the kind of writing that moves hearts.
