We Need Your Feedback

The blog passed 11,000 followers the other day and it’s growth continues to amaze and delight me. I don’t know why people keep coming back to view, like and comment but I’m forever grateful. At each milestone, I like to ask you guys what you want from the blog in the future. As well as, what does it mean to you, the deluded fools who read it every day. Without the interaction, blogging is a thankless task. You people make it worthwhile.

Here’s what’s on the table. Let us know what you want to see more of:

  • My fiction writing. I’ve recently published my first novel and I’m serialising a shorter story at present on the blog. I have loads more projects simmering and want to one day make a living as an author.
  • More serious introspective pieces focusing on mental health, particularly OCD, depression, anxiety and addiction.
  • Lighter pieces focusing on everyday events which strike a chord with me and tickle my funny bone.
  • Family posts, including contributions from Fionnuala, Hannah and Rebecca.
  • Spiritual posts.
  • Book and film reviews.

What do you want to see? Please comment below?

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 15 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. My preferences are for more serious introspective pieces, spiritual pieces, and lighter everyday events’ stuff. You do a great job, and I think whatever mix seems right to you is the one you should go with, but since you asked… You have a wonderful blog. Thanks for your kindness and openness with us all. — Jan

  2. I would love to see more spiritual posts from you πŸ™‚
    What have you been studying in the Bible? How has God answered your prayers? Are you involved in any outreach ministry? What is God doing through you? What are some spiritual comparisons in KSC? It would be great to hear about all of that.

  3. Because you have done a remarkable job nurturing this blog I think its a great mechanism to launch into the next phase of your creative life. I think using this as a vehicle for more fiction writing is a great way to go. I’ll he here regardless of what you chose. Take care !

  4. For me it’s not about stats, the number of followers and likes.
    I have 46 followers over a few months and I am grateful for each of them. I feel proud that they take time out of their day to read my words.

    For me its about writing as a creative process . If I wrote purely for what I perceived my audience wanted, then my writing and voice has already changed and I am no longer being authentic to myself.

    I follow your blog because way back when on my first blog you were vulnerable and shared things with me in an effort to help me not feel alone with my pain. I will never forget your compassion.

    Write what YOU want Stephen, the rest will fall into place. Writing is art. You are the artist. Followers and likes are just icing on the cake. ☘️

    1. (I’ve been blogging for 9 years; I have been read by folks in about 66 countries, but only have about 133 followers… I’m not sure if I should continue, but it is a fun and sometimes more meaningful diversion)

  5. I am a very recent follower, and I like the friendly tone in your posts. Also, you write about things near to my heart: deep personal stuff, spirituality, and, I see now, you also write about writing, which I definitely want to read more about. (I have embarked on a project of my own, writing a book intended for young people, to inspire hope). Congrats on the 11 000 milestone!

  6. More poetry. Maybe a few in that famous Terrible Poetry Contest I’ve heard about….

    In more seriousness, what you do is good. I think writing mostly your inspirational real-life observations/relations with a smattering of the other stuff is good.
