Should Christian Writers Blog?

To blog or not to blog? The question was raised in a forum of Christian writers. Should Christian writers blog? And if so, why? For what purpose? For those of you who write, here is my response:

I began blogging several years ago, mainly as an outlet, as an active way to keep writing. I’m a former tribal missionary of 20 years, now a full-time secretary, pastor’s wife, and home-schooling mother who has written several books, one of those in the final editing stages.

Blogging helps tone our craft. Blogging opens doors to share spiritual truths where we might otherwise not have the opportunity. On a practical level, blogging gives us a better author’s platform, which in turn aids in marketing.

If we are writing material that honors God and leads others to Him, or into a more intimate relationship with Him, we need a platform. We need a voice that will be heard. Blogging can be that platform. Blogging can be that voice.
