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 …because 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.)
