Well, 2011 has almost come to a close. It’s been a great year, and I’d like to think it’s had its share of good blogging.
This Friday will be my last post of the year. I’ll be taking next week off to chill with family, play video games an inordinate amount of time, and do some catch up reading on my favorite blogs.
I’ll also be spending some time thinking about what kinds of special things I can do here on the blog in the next few months. Most of what you read is not planned out that far. I don’t know about you, but I’m doing really great if I know on Sunday what the week will look like on the blog. 99% of what you read what written just a day or two before. It’s how I stay “topical” and “relevant,” and “dynamic,” and a bunch of other meaningless and idiotic catch phrases that Christians and bloggers use. But special things and guest posts have to be given some advanced thought.
So here’s what I’m thinking. I’d like to give you the chance to help me write some cool stuff in 2012.
With my wife and I continuing our quest to become parents, (and the projectile baby vomit level of comments that have ensued on those blog posts), I’d like to hear from any of you who are interested in talking about parenting. If you have octuplets, or you’re purposely childless, or you had kids way too early, or too late, or you have something unique to tell two hopeful parents, I want to talk to you. Leave me a comment to let me know you want to talk to me about parenting.
Seeing the comments that have continued to pour in from NFQ’s guest post last week has me interested in hearing from more of you. If you want to talk to me about having a spouse or child who is a non-believer, or you had a really unique path to faith, or a path out of faith, or you belonged to a cult, or you’ve had some kind of ridiculous, Lord of the Rings-esque spiritual quest, I want to hear about that. Leave me a comment to tell me you want to talk about spirituality.
And if you just have a great topic for a guest post that you’re dying to share, leave me a comment and tell me.
Make sure you put your email in the blank when you register to comment. I’ll be getting in touch with all of you really soon to see what you have on your mind. I can’t guarantee that I’ll use your topic. No hard feelings. But here’s your chance!
