When I talk about blogging for God’s glory, I don’t mean to say, “Look at my website, and you’ll know how it’s done.” I don’t mean that. I’m certain that no angels dance when they open up my URL on their smartphones.
Those are a few of the ideas I shared in a recent 30-minute interview for Pilgrim Radio Network. In the interview I also share how I became a writer, which is something I never imagined would happen. If you get this post on the day it releases (Friday, March 30, 2018), then you can livestream the interview at 12:30 pm and 9:30 pm Pacific Standard Time. For everyone else, the audio is below.
The backstory to the interview is funny—at least to me.
About 18 months ago I wrote down a series of questions to help a friend as he launched his blog. A year later, I took those questions and wrote them into a post. I was hoping they might help others but feared only five people would read it. After I submitted the article to two different places and heard “no” from each, For The Church was kind enough to publish it. (I also posted a follow up on the technical aspects of blogging on my own site, which I’m sure only five people did read.)
Anyway, Tim Challies ended up sharing the post on his blog, which gets, shall we say, a little more traffic than mine—about 100 times more web traffic to be exact. From there, Bill Feltner, the host of “His People” on Pilgrim Radio, saw the post and asked for the interview.
I hope you both enjoy and find it helpful as you pursue whatever it is that God has specifically called you to do for his glory.
