Top 10 Art, Life & Faith Posts November 2011

If you missed any of my posts for November 2011, here are my Top 10 posts on the Art, Life & Faith blog. To give credit where credit is due, I received this idea from Michael Hyatt whose blog,, I regularly follow. I met Mike years ago when he was a literary agent. If you want to glean great ideas on leadership, publishing, productivity, and social media, you simply must follow his blog. I can’t say enough good things about it! His writing resources are so good, I even recommend his Write a Winning Book Proposal here on Art, Life, & Faith. Michael is a wonderful man and blogger to draft behind.

Here are my top 10 posts for November 2011…

  1. Scott Rigsby: Unthinkable Courage (October 7, 2011)
  2. Is God Enough? (September 1, 2011)
  3. Art, Life & Faith with Wayne Forte (November 5, 2011)

Above, I placed the date when the blog post first appeared. A few observations…

  • The top post was inspirational. Courage…something we all need more of.
  • Top post categories were story, artist videos, writing, and spiritual formation.
  • Most popular November posts were video-driven. (More artist interviews in 2012)
  • Only 3 of the top posts were written in November.
  • 2 of the Top 10 posts were written way back in February.

Here in December, I’ll be offering free copies of my ebooks to my top commentors. If you’d like a copy of The Longing, I Love You Unconditionally…On One Condition, or any of my youth titles, I’d love your comments and feedback on this month’s coming posts.

Question: Whether you’re new or a regular here on Art, Life, & Faith, what topics or content are you interested in? What posts have you found to be useful, inspirational or helpful in your life?

As always, I’d love your thoughts, ideas and comments.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive, snarky or off-topic.

    I too follow Michael Hyatt. He is the genuine deal when it comes to blogging and building platforms that are affective. As a matter of fact I am waiting for his new book to come out soon related to creating a platform to present your ideas. It will be the bomb.

    Over the past five years I have been blogging off and on. The blog I use today is not what it began as. Today, I am interested in doing the following. First, learn from my lessons in the past. Next, read great content from serious bloggers (like you). Then, write lots of great content. And the content I write I intend to come straight from the heart. That will be my voice. In my past blogs I was too much of a copy cat. The content was not my voice. Now I am delivering on leadership, achievement, and personal excellence using my real voice. That is what the reader I have like about my style. 

    Also, I am toying with this idea I call “Blog Bumping.” I am considering writing a post about this idea. It is quite simple. You find a lead blog in the target sphere for your blog. My key blog is Michael Hyatt and from their I read and interact with other bloggers of the same mind. I bump their blog by genuinely commenting and hope the favor get returned. Some day I may add content for sale on my blog and for now it merely in place to develop great content and get better recognized. 

    From Michael’s blog today I learned that capturing a list of key followers is a great idea. In time that will happen. For now… I only intent to provide great content from the heart on helping people visioneer a life that matters.

    Hey Spencer,

    Thanks for your thoughtful and detailed post. I love your idea of “bumping blogs.” It sounds like a great way to create a win/win for like-minded bloggers.
