Why I Don’t Blog More Often

"Joey has a good blog, but he doesn't update it often enough. Is that fair?" 

Words from a good friend while he was teaching ministers about blogging. It was and is a fair statement. I'm certainly aware that I don't post regularly. Not as regularly as I want. Nor as regularly as I should.

I'm not writing to apologize. And I'm not writing to make excuses. All I'm doing is telling you why:

I lack the self-discipline required to write and publish regularly.

That's not a new problem for me. And it's not reserved just for of blogging.

Like you, I'm well aware of both my strengths and weaknesses. I love to create. I love being artistic and how technology makes it easier to create art than ever before. And I enjoy writing because, for me, it is art. This is why I want to maintain a blog.

But I struggle to create the self-discipline I need to make it happen.

And I'm pretty certain God doesn't want me to stay this way. "The slacker does not plow during planting season; at harvest time he looks, and there is nothing." Proverbs 20:4

I'm not committing to doing anything in this post. I'm simply stating why I don't update it enough.

I know the Lord continues to open doors of opportunity and influence and I pray I use godly courage to commit to them. For now, it's my prayer this space continues to be such a door.

Thanks for your encouragement and for reading.

  1. Yep! I can “blog” on Facebook and no one ever asks why I don’t do it more often. I think I could blog regularly (if I set regular reminders and tried REALLY REALLY hard) but I don’t feel I could do it well enough regularly to satisfy myself…

  2. Can certainly feel ya on that. Quite a few people seem to use Facebook as a personal blog, the more I think about it. 🙂
