A couple of time this summer I have tried to get some ideas from readers about what direction to take this blog into. I haven’t really gotten any feedback and at the same time, I haven’t had any bright ideas of my own. Originally, I wanted to be some super thought provoking blogger on what all is going on in ministry in Southeastern Kentucky, but as time went on my wife and I needed a site that was an update for our prayer and financial supporters. That website andyanderin.net largely has done what this site was meant to do as far as keeping up with ministry updates. So, I found myself running out of ideas to post on here and as you can tell by the sparse posts of this summer I have struggled with what to write. So what to do what to do…
So as the title of this post suggests I am going to go back to basics. This blog is going to be about things, ideas, issues and much more randomness that is on my mind and I am dealing with personally. While I am sure there will be some ministry issues that pop up occasionally, if you really want to know what is going on with Erin in ministry go to andyanderin.net. Please stay with me though as I process what this site is going to be come and work through various thoughts. Hopefully it will be something that excites and draws your interest as well as excites me to work on!
A little over a week ago I published a post asking for your help in coming up with a new idea for the name and direction of this blog. Good news is that lots of your read this post. Bad news is that i am still waiting for ideas. So please send those ideas in!
I have been trying to do better again about blogging and wanting to write more. The problem that I have is when I started this blog my focus was to do ministry updates and thoughts about various things that I am facing in ministry. A couple of years into this blog though my wife and I started a blog to keep our Prayer and Support partners updated on what is going on the various aspects of ministry with KMM. So, http://www.andyanderin.net has really been doing a lot of what I wanted to do here. So, now I am seeking a new direction for this blog and welcome any thoughts or ideas that you may have. Along with this change in direction I am also considering a new name for this blog? So, what are your thoughts? I wanted to make this into a fun contest and though I can’t offer a big prize, if I choose your idea for a blog idea or blog name, you will win a pizza on me here at The Lee County Recreational Center. So let me hear your thoughts! (serious thoughts only please!!!)
This week I am going to be a bit out of commission when it comes to keeping up with my blog. The good news is that nothing is wrong it’s just that Erin and I are busy sharing about what God is doing here with Kentucky Mountain Mission. Please pray for us this week that God will give us wisdom in what to say and also that through this time of sharing we will be able to recruit some much needed seasonal and full time staff! Thanks so much and I look forward to updating everyone next week!
