About 3 weeks ago, I shared that I was going to be attending Declare, a Christian women’s blogging conference, in Dallas. I hoped to learn more about social media (I did) and other aspects of the blogging world, but one issue I hoped to explore further while I was there is the direction of this blog. I was so busy attending various sessions, meeting as many of the wonderful attendees as I could, and digesting the information shared that I didn’t really have the opportunity to ponder that or discuss it at any length with anyone and get their feedback.

I wish I could say that in the 2 weeks I’ve been back I’ve found time to think about blogging, but instead I’ve been sidetracked by some less-than-wonderful (to put it mildly) events. The community I work in has been rocked by a tragic event, and a week ago today my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. As a result, most of my attention and energy has been focused on family and work.

Now, though, I’m able to turn my attention to writing and to this blog, and as I consider the direction of my writing, I’d love to hear from you, either through a comment in response to this post or through an email (pattimiinch@gmail.com). I hope you’ll share with me what you would like to see me focus on as I move forward. In other words, how can I best serve you through this blog? What would you like to see more of? Less of?

I can’t wait to see what you have to say!

Also, if you’re on Facebook and haven’t already done so, I hope you’ll “like” and “follow” my page — Patti Miinch.
