In my recent survey thirty friends described their online reading patterns.

For writers, this is incredibly helpful. I plan to spend some time learning from each of these Christian resources.

Interestingly, people didn’t seem to do much online reading. Most people only named two or three sites or blogs. Some mentioned that they follow these only infrequently. Some had not read any blogs lately.

Writers, we can take this as a reminder: we don’t compete mainly against other writers. We are competing for the time and attention people devote toward every other pursuit.

Many people are not regular readers of Christian blogs in the first place. There is a large untapped value to be had if we can convince non-readers to become readers. But with a given reader we may only get one chance. Make every post count.
