  2. The Turn to Other Social Media for Connection
  3. The Solidifying Reading Patterns of Blog Readers

    There are so many blogs these days! Trevin Wax does a great job on this article providing some great thoughts. I really liked his two points about the difficulty of beginning a successful blog and the building of blog congregations. Great article and insight!

  2. Rachael Starke says:

    “Blogs create people who agree – whether they be Reformed, Emerging, Republican, or converted Catholics. You find a niche, write for that niche, and then get pats on the back from the readers who enjoy your writing.

    That’s worth some thinkin’.
