Goals for this blog in 2011

I only have one goal for this blog in 2011.  And that is to build a "following" of at least 10 people by the end of the year.

I'm looking for 10 people I wouldn't otherwise be able to encourage and challenge to follow Jesus.  If this goal is reached, I will most likely continue to blog in 2012.  (And at the same time I want to write like 500 people are reading... Each post should be well thought out and have quality content.)

The toughest part about this statement is finding a way to measure followers.  I'm not sure asking everyone to raise their hand will do.  Comments aren't a great way because not everyone leaves a comment.  Pageviews are hard to quantify as well. (For example, at the writing of this post, I had seven pageviews from Pakistan.  And while I want to give a shout out to my Pakistani friends, I'm not sure I would consider you followers... yet.)

I'll probably try to quantify a number of followers by smashing the following equation together:
Followers = (Comments + Google Reader usage + E-mail Subscribers + Pageviews) / Healthy dose of reality

And since I'm only counting to 10 I think that the above equation will work.
