My first post was on February 28, 2013 (view it here). Today is a milestone for me; this post marks the 200th post on evandolive.com. I am well aware that 200 posts in a drop in the bucket compared some other bloggers but I believe have learned a thing or two about writing and publishing.
- It Doesn’t Have To Be Earth Shattering: One of the biggest things I (still) struggle with is the notion that I have to blow some brain cells by trying to craft some deep, powerful theological sentence or paragraph. I have learned that sometimes the simpler the better is the way to go. There are times to be deep and there are times to jovial.
- Stay True To You: It is easy to slip into a mode to where you tell people what they want to hear (or think they want to hear) rather than just speaking from your context and theology.
- You’ll Never Know What People Will Like: Case in point: My Letter To Victoria’s Secret which I never though would garner nearly 4 million hits. On the other hand there are some posts that I believe people will find interesting or profound and hardly anyone reads it. The point is… keep putting content out there.
I want to thank you for reading, sharing, liking, tweeting and commenting. It has been a wild ride so far and I look forward to the next 200!
