Audio Interview with @thechurchmouse

“The Church Mouse sees everything that goes on in the Church. But he’s a shy and modest mouse so he only comes out when no-one else is about. What interests the Mouse most is how badly people in church are able to relate to people outside church. Being a mouse, he notices these things. Being a mouse, he can’t speak. So he blogs.”

The BigBible Project interviewed The Church Mouse via digital methods – enjoy 10 great minutes of intelligent mouse-speak in response to the following questions:

  • You’ve been blogging since January 2009. What inspired you to set up the blog?
  • How often do you blog, and how do you decide what you are going to blog about?
  • What would be your top tip for someone looking to set up a new blog?
  • You are ‘The Church Mouse’, with your ‘real’ identity a closely guarded secret. What special characteristics does this give you, and how do you think this affects what you blog about? Does it make you more prepared to speak out or are you aware that it is possible for people to identify who you are?
  • What other social media tools do you use, and which are the most important as far as you are concerned?
  • Congratulations, you won ‘Newcomer of the Year’ at the Christian New Media Awards in 2009. How did that feel, and has it made any difference to what you do?
  • Would you encourage other Christians to get online? What difference do you think it would make?
