1. Let the best of the LDS Church media design your blog.
2. Decide how often you can post.
3. Be willing to engage directly in the thread over what or with whom you desire to address.
4. And when controversial topics surface, your critics are many and varied (from atheists to exmormons to devout, conservative Christians). The power of blogging is the open access and influence with candid, written words to anyone and everyone around the world. But select and provide interaction with your critics one by one – the ones who will display respectful conversation with you. Set a thread limit if you so desire. And start with the critics in your own backyard in the I-15 LDS corridor.
5. LDS members and professors have long been in the public dialogue and debate. It is time for you to take the lead.
As a pastor in Southeastern Idaho, I have a lot on my heart about the nature of God and His Gospel work. Which LDS apostle or general authority or even area authority will engage with me kindly and respectfully “live” on your own new, media blog? And where you are passionate to see others converted, allow me the freedom to be soulful about seeking your heart conversion to the God I wonderfully see and experientially know in scriptures.
Will one of you be willing to step up to the plate and talk to the Idaho spud in Ammon, Idaho or anyone else through this new media?
I would be eager to get into a God discussion with an LDS apostle over this topic.
