I came across this poem from Andrew Jones, an emerging church guy over in the UK. He wrote it a couple years back and I think it is most helpful to me as I continue to blog and think about my audience.
how shall we then blog?
with smile we publish glad tidings daily
with giggle we reveal our mundane humanity
with sigh we mirror the tragedies of broken people
with shout we send healing words through a keyboard
with bitten lip we offer more cheek to those who despise us
with double-take we acknowledge the publisher on the screen
with mumbling we paint mysteries with strange palette
with softened voice we offer answer from ourselves
with whisper we speak beyond ourselves
with twinkle we welcome past friends
to reawaken childhood dreams
to publish our journeys
to record our stories
to be noticed
to be heard
to point to
be heard also.
