What I’ve learned about blogging

February 7, 2003

Welcome, Dave! I appreciate your posting. I don’t know if you’re still reading this thing or if that was just a one-shot deal for you and you’re satisfied, but in case you’re out there…

Here are some of the things I’ve learned about blogging:

  • Even though most blogs are written by a single person, a sense of community is formed when people read each other's blogs and refer to them. Thoughts spread pretty quickly among those who read each other's stuff.
  • Community blogs are formed by groups that have already have non-virtual fellowship.
  • Thus far, my blog has mostly been high-falutin' contemplatin' of the role of the church in a postmodern culture. But the more interesting blogs are the ones with more self-disclosure of everyday stuff ‚Ķbecause how do you separate the "spiritual" from everyday life? (The one good example I have of how I'm trying to live the stuff is in my Cub Scout posting.)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
