I've been blogging for a little over a year. Facebook, sure! Ok, maybe more sporadic than spontaneous. Twitter, yeah baby! Tweeting multiple times a day, but no clue who my tweeps are.
And why do I have tons more tweeps than friends? And why are the tweeps I don't know reading my blog more than the friends I do know?
In February, my YouTube/Godtube video went online. Great, but what do I do with that? Most recently, a local magazine published an article about Allie's Kids (the registered name of our kids' ministry). The writer, Lisa Allen, did a terrific job painting an empathetic picture of our vision and mission, but I'm not quite sure how to use it to its fullest potential.
What a whiner! I think it's time to rewind.
I love learning new stuff. Technology is usually fun for me. It's given my kids and me something new to talk about. I've had opportunities to connect with some pretty cool folks. Technology mobility means I don't have to stay put in order to stay focused. Seems to me there's a lot to be thankful for.
Then there's the biggie: the faces of kids when I give them their own copy of a book about love, hope and forgiveness.
Oh yeah, that's why I do it. Not for book reviews, or blog views, or growing numbers of tweeps and friends. That's all gravy. It's the kids that count!
Have you taken on a new task or mission lately? Did it come with new skills and demands that are sometimes overwhelming? How do you stay motivated?
