Wow…

This is a bit overwhelming…

I’ve been staring at this page for a while with a couple of valid questions running through my mind:

“What in the world am I going to write about?”

“Who wants to read what I have to say anyway?”

To be honest, I still don’t have very specific answers to either of those questions.

So why do it, you ask? Well, I can tell you one reason why I’m NOT doing it. I don’t have any aspirations of being Blog Star (not really sure but I might have coined a title there which would be awesome). Having thousands of readers isn’t my goal. Well, that’s not necessarily my goal. Don’t get me wrong, that would be great. But if that never happens, I won’t be devastated. At least, I hope not… Hmmm… Moving on…

I miss writing. That’s one reason I started this blog. Writing was something I did for fun at one time. After a Rhetorical Grammar class, writing and fun just didn’t go together anymore. I’d like to get to the point again where writing is actually fun (FYI, I’m not quite there yet).

I love to tell the story of God. Even bits and pieces of His story sometimes don’t fit in Facebook or Twitter updates so this will be an extension of sorts for those updates. In a way, this blog will be the overflow from my relationship with Jesus. My relationship with Him is almost too private if I’m not careful so this is a small way of balancing that out.

Also, as I grow as a leader I’ll be posting and plugging stuff from guys that are shaping me on that front. There will be more to come later on that point.

I guess that’s quite enough for my first post. Thanks for reading.
Matt
