    I’m tempted to use this as an opportunity to shill my own blog.

  • Mike Gantt

    What if everyone who loved Christ blogged for Christ?

  • Rebecca Trotter

    Some help with that “make money” part would be nice!

    Scot, thanks for your blog…. it’s well thought out and the community is a good one. It’s full of new ideas and perspectives. Thanks for keeping it real.

  • Emily

    I am!!! Great post!

  • Grandmother

    Thank you for this! Don’t know how many times I’ve talked myself out of starting a blog. Earlier this evening just may have been the last.

    This post most reminds me of G.K.Chesterton’s last paragraph in Orthodoxy( which you pull off more than readers give you credit for).

    Instead, why don’t I just try to get to know my neighbors this year? Oh, wait… that would require actual interaction… with real families… who might be lonely, or need help paying a bill or taking care of their home, or needing their kids watched, or…… Wait. What was I thinking? That would require a lot of time actually getting my hands dirty for the Kingdom instead of just reading, thinking, and writing about it. (judgement for myself only)

    I recently started a blog and many of the points in the graphic are valid. However, it’s sometimes pitched as a way to make a lot of money quickly and it usually doesn’t work that way.
