The last time I checked, over 1500 of you have offered your feedback in the survey I sent out last week. And though that number only represents a fraction of you who are reading, your responses to the 8 question survey have come at just the right time.
I expected to get an idea of what you’d like to see more of, to see less of, and to get some insight into where my passions and your needs intersected a bit more specifically.
What I didn’t expect was for your answers to those 8 silly questions to so profoundly remind me who I am and why I do this.
So thank you for taking the time to affirm and confirm some things for me. For example, when I asked you if you could only choose ONE topic to read about here, this is what you said:
1. Everyday Faith (39%)
2. Rest & Simplicity (11%)
3. Art (9%)
4. Courage (7%)
5. For Your Weekend (7%)
These five categories made up 73% of the favorites, with the remaining 27% spread out among the other 17 categories. When I asked what topics you didn’t want to read about here, 932 of you straight up skipped the question. I take this as a good sign.
This isn’t the kind of place you come to because of a specific topic, even though I know many of you have some specific interests you prefer.
For the most part, you come here to pause, take a breath, and to remember the simplicity and depth of your faith in a fast-moving world. And this is exactly why I write here. I’m glad we’ve found each other.
On to the most important question of the survey (or at least the most fun), here is where our lives are reflected back to us in the form of primetime television:
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to weigh in on the survey (there is an opportunity to write in feedback if you so choose), you can do that here.
Thank you all again for joining me as we walk, crawl, struggle, and sometimes run in faith together.
Tomorrow we’ll be sharing What We Learned in March – I hope to see you back here then!
