Insignificance Pursued

If you read my book review last Wednesday, I forewarned of upcoming changes. Nope, not more exercise and less cookies. That'd be silly. I can't even fathom why anyone would do this. In fact, the other night I asked my wife if she wanted anything while I was up getting myself cookies. She said she didn't need anything.

I scoffed. Never in history has a doctor ever uttered the phrase, "Nurse, this man needs a cookie, stat!" But that's not why I eat them. Now, what was I saying?

Oh yes, changes. I mean changes to my blog. I just read 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo by Bryan Allain, a book I recommend for bloggers. He brings great focus for bloggers who want to build their platform. But this is also where I struggled.

You may notice, if you visit my blog at all, that the main topic I turn to frequently is insignificance. It's even in the sub-title for my blog. It's something I am pretty passionate about, this idea that instead of seeking to be famous in the world's eyes, we should be seeking insignificance, pointing instead to God. So it feels a bit odd when I say I want more followers so I can talk about how insignificant I am.

Yet that is exactly what I am going to do. So, for anyone that wants to pay attention, my blogging schedule is going to change a tad. This will begin next Monday as I offer short descriptions for what I will do.

I am inviting you to come along on a journey with me. You don't know me. I'm ok with that. This is my search for insignificance.
