THE DIGITAL AGE


What are three things someone should note when starting up a new blog?


One, know your niche, what you are, and go with it. You want to write about something you love. Two, be open and honest. Being personal makes a big difference in your writing and to your reader. Finally, think quality over quantity. With trying to keep it updated you can loose focus. Make a schedule and keep that as a guide to what you want on the blog.


What makes your blog different? It’s a blog about everyday women who are sharing their walk, or should I say journey, with God.


Does The Remnant have a social media strategy for 2012? Yes, we do. It’s important to have a social media strategy. One of the points is to expand and to engage. With expanding you can lose the personal feel so we must actively find ways to keep people connected.


What has surprised you most about this digital age we live in? What has surprised me is the amount of access we have to everything due to faster Internet and smarter smartphones. It also is scary as the age of a child seeing something explicit on the Internet is getting increasingly lower and more and more teens are accessing things way above their age or understanding.


It’s good to sometimes take a break from it all – no tweets or Facebook. It’s also great to take a break to be reinspired and remember your voice, your own opinion.


As a blogger in the UK, do you feel you’ve had to fight to get to the point you’re at now? No. The blogosphere is open space. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can seriously make the headway you want.


What would you say is the essence of your blog? To redefine how women approach their Christian walk. To help us realise there is more than a stereotype of


being a Christian. It’s personal, but also supposed to be impacting.


Why do you feel it is important to have a blog of this nature? The blog is very much God-centred and it’s great to know there is a blog like our own trying to connect like- minded people on a journey that can be lonely. It’s important as Christianity is a lifestyle not an add-on to our lives. We all lose that focus, and this blog is a small way to help people get that balance and keep their spirit filled throughout the week.
