Would you read a "religious" blog?

Not really religious, but a blog sort of about a religion. I was thinking of making one to talk about some sort of misconceptions about the religion (and yes, that does mean that it has a bias towards presenting the religion in a positive light).
But, in general, people don't seem to care about a religion unless they're a) part of it, b) thinking of conversion, or c) really hate the religion, so I don't want to start up a blog that no one's going to read. Will anyone (except for haters and ****) read my blog?

    I'm an atheist, so personally, I wouldn't. I find religion to be an interesting concept, and I enjoy studying theology...but I don't know that I'd really be interested in reading a religious blog. There are many that would though I imagine.

    Be warned that the ultra religious and the ulta anti religious will dominate the thread barking at each other. But only when the different religions aren't barking at each other. Other than that, sure why not. But expect extreme discourse.

    I would not.

    I wouldn't. If I looked anything up, I'd want to read authoritative resources, rather than a blog someone somewhere wrote about their experience with the religion. Which isn't to say that the authoritative resource would be perfectly comprehensive, but I don't want to read an account that's heavily biased by unique personal experiences.

    I read several religious blogs, but they're about my religion, and the bloggers are clearly deep thinkers who know more than I do.
