You CAN Blog About Your Faith

If I can blog about my faith, then you can too! Obviously, if you have a specifically Christian blog, then you'll be talking about your faith all of the time. But what if you have a mommy blog, or a humor blog, or a deal blog, or a food blog? Do you keep it all business and leave your faith for your personal side of things or do you let it show and risk losing some of the readers that help you build your base and reach your goals?

You have to decide what works best for you and your blog, of course. Even though my blog is not a "Christian" blog, I am a blogger who is a Christian. I blog about Life and my blog represents me. So I am comfortable occasionally mentioning my faith and sharing Scriptures because that's part of my life. It helps that as I get older, I am more accepting of the fact that no matter what I do, not everybody is going to like me {sigh}. I may lose a few non-Christian readers along the way, but a lot of them stick around as they still enjoy everything else I have to offer. {Waving hello to the few non-Christians actually reading this post!}

It's about learning what works for you and what feels right on your blog. Don't be what you're not! If you're an enthusiastic Christian and can't wait to share a devotional post every day - do it! If you're like me and not gifted in the devotional type of posts, then share your faith when you feel led to do so. When I feel led to share about my faith, or a Scripture, or a blessing, or a desire to pray for my readers - I just do it. I let God handle the rest of it. I don't have an in-your-face style as I'm very non-confrontational, so I think that helps!

You CAN blog about your faith!

Do you blog about faith? Have you been scared to post Scriptures for fear of losing readers? Have you found a way to write about your faith that works well for your blog? Share in the comments!
