Defining My Space in Cyberspace

So, I was thinking about this whole blogging thing and have decided I want to try something new. If you’re a blogger, you know one of the most difficult things about blogging is being consistent. I struggle with a daily blog because of time constraints, other commitments and probably my own need to over analyze what I think I need to write about.

Honestly…everything I do and think filters through my relationship with Christ, so it stands to reason that that’s what will overflow into my blog. That won’t change. That can’t change. But I’m going to be defining my space in cyberspace from a more strategic point of view.

Rather than random, devotion-style blogs, I want my posts to reflect my path. I realize that God has placed me on planet earth and the life experiences He has allowed me to have (good, bad and ugly) are not just for me, but to encourage others, as well. The same is true for you!

So, I’ll be sharing from what I know and where I’ve been through the filter of God’s Word. I hope you’ll join me for the journey and that the Lord will use my posts to speak to you where you are and encourage your heart.

Here’s my weekly schedule (which I’m starting tomorrow):

Mondays“Mom Stuff” Mondays – Since my kids are grown, it will probably be a lot of “Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda” stuff

Tuesdays“Teaching Tuesdays” – For homeschoolers and Speakers & Bible study teachers

Wednesdays“Women & Wives” Wednesday – We’re gonna talk girl talk

Thursdays“Missions” Thursdays – (Could someone come up with a good title for me for “Missions Thursdays”)

Fridays“Faith-filled Fridays” – This will be much like what you’re used to seeing

Saturdays“Saturdays for Scribes” – Writing for writers. Writing and publishing information

This schedule will enable you to know what to expect when and it will help me be more focused. There will be times when I deviate from the norm. Especially as I get closer to the book launch.

But the publisher is creating a website for the book which will have a blog on it, as well. I really want to begin inviting you now to visit it when it is up and ready. I’d love to walk through the study with you and hear your hearts and have you share what God is doing in your life through the study of Ecclesiastes: Understanding What Matters Most. (I’ll let you know when the site is ready!)

O.K. – so here’s my plan for my blog. Do you like it? Is there something you’d like for me to talk about that I haven’t mentioned? Is there anything specific you’d like for me to address from my list? I want to hear from you, my sistas!!

  4. This sounds great, Stephanie πŸ™‚ It's always best to work with an outline and a plan, I think.

    And I didn't know you had a book coming out! lol That shows how oblivious I am! I think I linked to you through a post of yours on Chip's blog, but I didn't realize you were an author! lol I should've figured since probably most or all of his posts are from writers (I'm aspiring).

    I simply linked to yours to reply to something you said, I think, then liked what you wrote and signed up. I'm sorry I haven't had time to explore in here!

    Anyway, good luck with your book! I hope you sell LOTS of copies!

  5. This sounds like a great plan; and great topics! I'm looking forward to each day of the week.

  6. Thankful Thursdays?
    The plan looks great. Is the book still set for release in July? I'm praying that my co-teachers will want to do it this fall. If so, maybe you could come be a guest speaker for one of our social nights.

  7. Love it, Steph!! And looking forward to it!

  8. Sounds awesome!

    Also some great suggestions for your Thursday. Depending on where you are going, I have some too…
