6 responses to “Measuring Success

  1. I had a blog for a few years that had over 2,000 followers and would get better than 500 views a day sometimes.

    I thought I was a reasonably successful blogger and I enjoyed the likes, clicks, and comments quite a bit. But, was I a success in general? I didn’t think so because maintaining the blog with posts people like was causing a lot of stress taking a lot of time that should have been put to better use.

    It was also a Christian blog so it go a good deal of attention from atheist trolls and that was a different kind of stress I did not need.

    Long story short, I prayed a lot and believe God told me to delete the blog and walk away so (after hesitating for quite a while) I hit the delete blog button and walked away which was surprisingly freeing.

    Anyway, I have a blog now that almost no one reads and I am 100 percent OK with that because I have realized that my real success is in the real world ministering to real people.

    Anyway, good luck with your blog, I think the content is great.

    • Thanks for sharing that! There’s such a pressure (whether self inflicted or societally) to perform, get likes, shares and get comments that it changes or focus inward instead of outward.
      Keep blessing people the way God shows you and ministering to them. Each seed planted is success. Our responsibility is to minister and do what God asks.

    Persevere Chris! Jesus would have come even if only one would have repented, only one believed, and only one had accepted Him as Lord!!

  3. My blog belongs to God. It’s up to Him what happens with it.
