How blogging helps REINFORCE your message.

Camp Mission Meadows | 20d | 2008 

I’ve heard it said that you have to hear an idea 7 times before comprehending it, much less accepting it.  I’m realizing how true this is...

I experienced this first hand not to long ago.  When I lived in Maryland I would walk with my friend Mike in the mornings.  I shared with him, early on in our decision process, about the possibility of us moving out here to Hawaii.  We talked about it more than a few times.    Mike came and heard us share one evening about us moving to Hawaii with a bigger group of people.  Jess shared with the group, the same thing I had been sharing, the what and the why of Hawaii. When the meeting finished Mike told Jess that when she shared, it really clicked and made sense.  

Was it because Jess communicated this message so much more clearly than I did?  That might be a possibility.  But I think it has more to do with the fact that the same idea had to be communicated multiple times for someone to understand and accept it.    

I’ve been writing a lot lately about blogging.  I’m sharing with you practical tips on how to blog, and reasons why. My main idea?  YOU SHOULD START A BLOG!  Here's how.  

Blogging is a great way to communicate the same idea, share your vision multiple times in a variety of ways and will help reinforce your message.  

Engage:  Have you experienced needing to hear an idea more than a few times for it to make sense?  In what ways was it communicated?  Share with us in the comments!


  1. I don't know what you've blogged about in the past, but do you feel like blogging about blogging is kind of like your thing now? Seems like it. Which is cool. There are a lot of people that need that extra push to start a blog. Actually, the new post I mentioned in my other comment talks about blogging a little.

    Also, you're in Hawaii? I always thought you lived in Western New York. Why did I think that?

  2. I'm blogging about blogging right now because its relevant to me and its helping me externally process. I talked a bit about what I hope this blog will be here -->
    I'm loosely blogging on different themes, like this past theme obviously was blogging, I'm not sure what I'll do next, I've got some ideas, but I'm allowing myself to throw in whatever God is showing me at the moment too.
    I DID live in WNY, I'll tweet you more details because i'm wondering why we never met in person since we were in the same network of people.
