Have you ever wondered why you will post a link to your latest, greatest blog post on twitter, facebook or google + and you just aren’t getting the reaction that you expected? It is that post that you spent hours on, just to see that it ends up being a flop. Well, there is one reason that it probably didn’t meet your expectations and here it is…
As I’ve been reading others’ blogs, I’ve noticed something lately about “Christian” bloggers, including myself. We rarely use Scripture in our posts. Maybe it’s becoming “uncool”… NO.WAY.
I know my reason. It’s because I know someone is reading my posts and knows a lot more about the Bible than I do. Then when I use that Scripture that I think is perfect, someone who knows Hebrew and Latin and actually wrote part of the Bible, points out that it’s not being used in the right context. Yep. That happens quite a bit.
I do learn something from those folks, though.
I’ve been thinking about all of this lately. This shouldn’t keep me from using Scripture. I should share it every chance I get.
I should actually use a verse in every post even if it doesn’t go, just to mess with all of your minds.
Maybe I’ll start with something easy, but profound. Something like John 3:16.
That verse always goes.
So, what’s your favorite scripture and why?
The one thing that I rate blog posts on is how many comments they have. If they don’t have many comments, then I will skip right over the post. If the post has a lot of comments, then I will dive right in. Maybe you rate blog posts by looking at comments, or maybe you read each one. If there is another way you rate posts besides how many comments they have, please let me know.
