For a couple of months now, I’ve been trying to work out how I want to move forward with this blog.
I set it up during my first week of parish life and I am at a place where I would like to post more. I enjoy writing about ministry and it seems to go down alright with people, but I write fairly sporadically, and I would like commit to posting something on a regular basis.
I’ve been thinking about what I could do, and I’ve come up with something along the lines of, how has the week been, honestly?
I’m really aware that social media is often either shiny filters with a positive spin on everything- and I am certainly guilty of that- or it brings out keyboard warriors full of hate and cynicism.
So, I’m going to try and do a weekly update with something honest. Not super shiny, not negative, just true. Not that I haven’t been honest up until this point, but I’m going to try and be a bit less inhibited.
So today, as I sit outside Weatherspoons in the morning sun, using the wifi on my new laptop and waiting for the doors to open (that’s the last time I arrange for the car to go into the garage at 7am- nothing really opens in Formby until 8, it turns out!), I am optimistically and yet slightly cautiously committing to something a bit more regular, and a bit more blunt.
I won’t necessarily post every one to Facebook/Twitter/Insta as I usually do, so feel free to click the ‘follow blog’ button.
If you would like to read along, you will be most welcome.
