  1. Matt – I’m a fairly new follower, so I feel strange but priviledged to comment. I really enjoy your blog. It challenges me and makes me think.

    Things I like are: subjects, usually tasteful ads; consistent monitoring and commenting; that even in your description you put Christ first

    Things I’d like to see: perhaps a slighter larger font (I have eyesight issues); more space between posts, sometimes they almost run together; perhaps modernize a bit in the layout – have it reflect the new ideas (ex: windows 8 look); is there any way there can be a spell check in the comment section?

    I access you through my google favorites.
    Thank you for caring enough to ask.

      Thank you Lulu.

      I’ve tried to find something that will offer a resizer and nothing works.

      Use CTRL+ (Control key and plus sign) to zoom in. That will help some!

    Relatively new here as well, enjoy your posts about leadership and life lessons 🙂 “The Power of Gratitude: A Thank You Thursday Story” – was what brought me to your blog and so far it has been my favorite post. I prefer to read your blog posts within Mozilla Thunderbird.

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Thank you Kush!

      I am glad that the post by @jonstolpe:disqus was the one that brought you here. Such a powerful story!

    I’d like to see more of the same! Your blog posts are always thought and action-provoking. You have an “in-your-face” approach that deals with the challenges of leadership from personal experience. I’d say keep up the good work and keep building your tribe.

    What I absolutely love is the way you recognize your commenters, through specific reference to the comments and posts on Twitter. I also love the click-to-tweet feature, I have to ask you how to do that for my blog.

    I get the post updates in my email, read them right there and jump to comments. This works great for me.

    Thanks for your generosity in teaching the rest of us how to fail forward.

      Thank you Lily.

      The Click to Tweet feature evolved but I remembered a marketing lesson that picture captions get a 50%+ greater readership than does any other part of the text, including bullets, sub-headlines, bolded and italicized text, etc. So I put the lone call-to-action in my posts there.

      It’s simple to do:

      1. Use http://clicktotweet.com

      2. Write the tweet and click the button

      3. Copy the URL and put that in the caption and picture link

      I agree with Lily – more of the same, and I love the click to tweet. I’m much more likely to click that early in the morning than craft my own!

      I do like how you use examples from real life, and your ability to network is amazing. I am always amazed when you tweet one of my blogs or thank me for commenting. Really a nice touch.

      You have a nice mix of content, from strictly leadership to family issues to mistakes you’ve learned from. Keep up the good work! Yours is one of the first blogs I read every morning.

      1. Matt McWilliams says:

        Honored by that last comment Carol.

        I’ll keep these in mind for sure as I craft my 2013 plan. Thank you so much!

  4. Jon Stolpe says:

    1) More of the same…Thank You Thursday testimonies, creative ideas on intentional leadership, etc.
    2) Thank You Thursday Revolution and the post on one-on-one meetings.
    3) I can’t think of any features.
    4) nothing
    5) RSS – to Google Reader.

  5. Dan Erickson says:

    I think you’re doing a great job, Matt. I don’t see anything that needs to change.

    As a creative guy I always enjoy an occasional post about musicians, authors, artists, etc. I think it could fit into your blog especially if they are using their talents for Godly purposes.

  6. Tom Dixon says:

    Maybe a link to send you $50 bills? Wait…I need one of those first. Seriously, have only recently found your blog and it made my RSS list – so there is an answer to the last one. Have a great weekend…and best of luck in 2013!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Is there a plug-in for that Tom? 🙂
