Blog for pastors wives is needed, but difficult.
It’s been a while since I’ve last blogged. Well, we’re coming off an incredibly busy month. May was mind-boggling. It was our church’s 95th anniversary, so that meant lots of events, happenings and activities. Whew!
That’s not the only reason I’ve been a bit out of sight. I’ve been praying and struggling with this blog. It’s a tough one to figure out. As you may know, I have two other blogs (www.godsygirl.com and www.my40somethinglife.com). One of them gets about 4,000 visitors each month. The other, not so many, but still it does well.
This blog also gets quite a few “finds”on the web. But, content for it is not so easy to produce. The issue is not finding something to write about. Any pastor’s wife will tell you, our lives produce enough fodder for anyone’s blog. Coming up with content – not problem.
The problem lies in the fact that our content – any content that would be relevant to today’s first ladies and senior pastor’s wives – is very personal and can affect many other people. So, this makes having a blog for pastors wives a little rough.
Any blog I write must be honest, open and authentic. However, being all those things without making my others in my life uncomfortable is a challenge. Also, I’m smart enough to know that everyone who reads this is not a senior pastor’s wife looking for inspiration. Some people are just nosy and just wanting to know what’s going on in my head. Ask me how I know. Trust me, I know.
However, I still think there is a need for this blog and I will not give up finding it’s niche. Just please be patient with me and pray that I can create content that is relevant, encouraging that touches people right where they are in their lives. Anything else would be fluff.
