The problem I have is that I love my three blogs a lot, at least at any given time when I'm interested in the subject they cover. I have a blog about cystic fibrosis, which I haven't written on in some time because I wrote about the hospital stay on this blog. I have a mentoring blog, which I thought would turn out to be a major ministry in and of itself, but that didn't really materialize. I think that churches already believe they support mentoring even if they don't. Anyway, I also have a fourth blog in the works for writing travel reviews on countries that Sailors visit.
What does this mean? Well, it means on one hand that I don't have any idea what I really want to write about. Or rather, I want to write about everything. I'm not just a one-passion man. I love technology, mentoring, being a Christian sailor, and beating cystic fibrosis. I also like politics, but my politics are a little different than most Christians, so I try to refrain from writing about it. Besides, what am I supposed to say about the government I've sworn to protect?
Suffice to say, I needed a new blogging plan of action. Starting now, I will publish at least one post per week in each of my passions. If I get excited enough to publish more than that, then so be it. However, the point of it all is to publish one post, build a following, expand my Twitter position and the Navy Christian Facebook page, and continue to write articles for magazines. In a few years, I really want to have a book deal. Probably a goal for 2016.
So there you have it. Things are changing a little in order to expand my writing platform in preparations for the future. Just think...someday you'll be able to say, “I knew him then.”
