Followers of this blog know that I like to tweak the look, feel, and nature of this site on a pretty regular basis. Part of it is that I’m a tinkerer. Part of it is that I am always on the lookout for something a little closer to perfect. Occasionally, I’ve changed the site dramatically.
I was very fond of my first site: Uncollusion. I realized that I didn’t want the name to a negative, so I bought my own domain name and changed the focus to cover the challenge of entering a new ministry search. From the beginning, the current name (originally Shoegaze Faith before adding the “My” before it) was obscure and far too personal an idea. I have never been satisfied with any of these attempts to “brand” myself.
In the next couple of months, I am going to do a medium shift of the site again. Some will be cosmetic (switching the site’s “theme”) and some will be in focus. So I’d like your help. If you are a regular reader of my blog, I’d like to hear what it is about it that draws you. If you scan it occasionally, let me know which posts you’ve stopped and read through.
I expect that those that have started following me have many different reasons for doing so. Like my Dad. My friends. Sometimes even my wife. They are all supportive, and I’m thankful for the kind words they’ve shared with me from time to time. Now I’m looking to hear when I’ve been at my best. What has inspired you to retweet or share my work with others.
Perhaps more importantly, I want to know what you hope to find when you see a post in your email box, when you click through Twitter or Facebook, or when you go through your bookmarks or RSS reader. Are you hoping to laugh or learn? Are you hoping for more pictures of my kids? More reflections on the church or current affairs?
The type of content won’t change, but I’m looking to tailor its focus a smidge and I’d love to get some help. Please give it some thought and feel free to respond in the comment stream, on Facebook, or by email. I would truly love to hear from you.
