how to be an efficient blogger

With over 1,000 posts to my name, I’ve learned a thing or two about the most efficient way to get content onto my blog and the importance of being an efficient blogger and writer.

(Honestly, I may not always follow the efficient path.  Sometimes it just isn’t feasible.  I will tell you that when I do follow the process, I can tell the difference in the quality of my writing. So can my readers.)

I think it’s time I unpacked that bucket and look a little closer.

(Quick rewind… I’m trying to reconcile how half the stuff on my blog is of the “I need adult supervision” vein while the other half is in the “listen to this wisdom” vein.  I’m not exactly signing up to be a hot mess. I’m pretty sure God wants me to write and to be an encouragement to other women, but I’m struggling to understand how my sassy mouth fits with in with God’s plan.  In short, is God OK with sassy?)
