Blogging For Business

Do you blog for your business? If so have you ever considered how you could write lists posts for your business? So many people love these kinds of post. They attract readers you may not have gotten if written in a different format.
Reasons people love these types of posts.

– They can be easily shared… ex. (check out #5 I can so relate)
– Lists help you sound like you may have more expertise. You are writing with purpose these 5 known       facts. etc.
– They are challenging to people. If you have 5 ways to do something you will challenge someone to want to do all 5 instead of the three they knew.

Give it a try! Let us know how it works for you!

Priorities and List Making

ecclesiastes 3 1

What are your priorities in life? Does your spouse and you have an agreement on priorities? Do your children know what those priorities are?

One thing in our family we have found especially as our children get older is that everyone needs to know what our priorities are as a family so that when we need to make a decision on anything we can make sure it lines up with our priorities.

We have our family priorities which look something like this:

#1 God.

#2 Spouse.

#3 Children.

#4 Community.

#5 Live Simply.

Obviously there can be some “mini categories” under these larger ones, but we feel at this time in our life these are the “larger” priorities.

Then we have a list that is our “current priorities”. This list is secondary to the above list. The second list is more of a keeping us on track for what we want to complete, commit to over the next week or so. This list can be constantly changing depending on what projects are on it and when we can get them complete.

Currently we have things on there like:

Household projects (never ending) BUT we have some specific things we want to accomplish. Daily exercise, setting up our routine and schedule that flows for our family, our business, a get away, and some projects in our basement and garage.

Where is your family at? Do you know? Want to start somewhere?

  • Start by making a list of all the activities in which you are currently involved.  (church, social gatherings, etc.)
  • Add to the list all your children’s activities.  (sports, lessons etc.)

After you have made that first list, don’t get overwhelmed. Its always amazing what we are committed to when we write it down.

Now when you take a look at that list, is there anything on the list you don’t really need to be doing? Is there anything on the list that you sense God is telling you not to do? Listen, its important. ;o)

Try to remember that you don’t need to do everything now.

A couple of questions I want you to ask yourself!

  1. Is it best for our family? Does it fit with our priorities as a family unit?
  2. Will it use or enhance our gifts and talents?
  3. What does the time commitment look like? How does your spouse feel about it?
  4. Have you taken time to pray about it before jumping in?

I’d love to hear what you think? Do you think something like this would work for you? Think about giving it a try!
