Looking back over the last 6 months

by Anna Blanch on September 26, 2011

I’ve been blogging for 4 years now and I’m still learning. I’m learning about my voice, about how to engage and listen and seek to understand in a medium and genre I didn’t grow up with. I am a digital immigrant who is fast becoming a naturalized citizen.  It always intrigues me to look at those posts which have been the most read and discussed. Over the last six months, those posts have largely involved something controversial or seemingly being contrarian. I’m not a polemicist by nature so i’m not sure I’d ever want to seek after that style as my usual way of writing. Anyway, here is a list from 10 to 1 of the most discussed and most popular (by page views) from the last 6 months.

10.Some Thoughts on Christian books and Profanity

9. I think I need to get a haircut and get a real job

8.Why Biblical Literacy Matters for Teachers of Literature

7.The Greatest Injury is Fear: London Riots

6.Why I’m not interested in doorknocking for Jesus

5.A Christian Reflection on the London Riots

4.10 things We Wish Someone Had Told Us When We Started Graduate School

3. 5 Things People Assume About Theologians

2.Why it bugs me when “the church” tells me how to be a woman

1.Calling out Christian leaders in the age of Digital Media

Listening. Observing. Sojourning. Writing. Photographing. Reflecting.

    I’ve also been thinking a little about the nature of my blogging… It can be frustrating when only the controversies get any feedback, and I find it tempting to write in that vein, but I suspect that will only serve to ultimately alienate thoughtful readers.
