“Hi, my name is Stephen, and I’m a slacker blogger.”

I’ve been slacking off from writing on this blog for quite some time.  A lot has been going on, but really there is no excuse other than laziness.  I have been posting to my Youth Ministry blog and my Children’s Ministry blog, but not to this one.  I think part of the problem is that I tend toward being a perfectionist when it comes to my writing.  I’m never really satisfied with my writing, and I take a long time to put things down in writing.  I’m too worried about choosing the wrong words, spelling, grammar, syntax, etc.  You would think having a wife who is an English teacher would be a big help, but alas, it is not.  I don’t always want her to read my writing in its first draft.  It’s not that she’s mean.  In fact, she’s always positive and encouraging when she corrects my writing.  I just wish that her talent would rub off on my writing and that the first time she reads it would be as a reader and not an editor.  

As a church staff we’ve been meeting individually with the pastor for these TPA sessions – “Think, Ponder, Act.”  We’re setting goals for 2009 for our ministries and for ourselves personally.  We’re about to discuss these things together as a staff.  During this process I’ve been reminded about a post I wrote on my birthday earlier this year.  One of the things I was going to do was blog more regularly.  I have to give myself a failing grade for that so far.  I’ve had some good stretches, but there have also been too many dry periods.  I’m going to try and not be such a slacker.  I commit to posting at least once a week until my next birthday in January.  After that, I’ll evaluate and see what I can do.  Here’s to hoping for a regular blog schedule!  If you read this blog regularly (whatever that means to you), please don’t hesitate to give me a reminder prompt to blog if I start to slack off again.
