So what’s next for 2013?
For starters, I still believe in the power and place of blogging. I know lots of blogs have come and gone but this really has become my home base on the web and I’ve loved posting and sharing here as a way to encourage and help worship leaders do what they do and do it better.
I do have some things I’d like to see happen here in 2013:
- 100,000 visitors
- Write and release three ebooks
- More blog series of posts
It’s been a great year. Looking forward to all that is ahead in 2013!
