Reconsidering Blogging

So it's been 3 weeks now and I haven't posted anything. In fact, I've been doing this a lot with the blog. I'm sure I've been lossing plenty of my readers because of my lack of blogging, the few that I have.

About 6 months ago I "re-invented" the blog to talk about leadership and ministry, but I found myself constantly writing something a lot like devotionals, and I'm learning that I really don't have tons of those in me. I mean, I'm typically writing anywhere from 8-12 devotional/sermons/sermon-ettes/lessons a month already.

I told my wife that I thought about stopping the blog and she asked why. I told her what I just told you and she said she thought I shouldn't stop blogging, but rather blog about something more interesting. She's hears me speak a lot (all of those 8-12 times a month) and so, while she reads my blog in her free time, it's never been my devotional-type posts that really grabbed her. So she suggested why not just post about life, the things we're doing. Make it mostly for our friends and family. And that's what I'm going to do.

With me soon leading an adult small group at our home, which only increases the amount of teaching I'm doing, it sounds like a great time to make that change.

So, I'll be renaming the blog soon (and a new look too). . .if you have any suggestions let me know. I really don't have any ideas yet.

(My wife is grinning right now as she knows I'm taking her advice.)

I think you should come up with a play on words using your last name...

That's a good idea but I can't think of any. . .

So were you getting tired of me not posting too?

Post lot's of pictures! Even if you have nothing to say or no time to write, pictures are always fun to look at! Can't wait to hear what's going on in Florida :)

I told Sarah about the play on words idea and she came up with "the Moore abundant life" off the top of her head. . .we're still thinking and feel free to make suggestions!

Excellent Idea Sarah!!!!!!
Score one for the wives and their ideas!!!!
Seriously, Terry, I'd love to know what's going on in your lives - it can be fun, lighthearted, serious, relevant, normal, mundane - you know - real life! And the cool thing is .... God's word and applications can be the golden thread woven throughout your life story!
I'm looking forward to tuning in (I start at Nate's blog and then read all the rest - frequently!)
