When I first started blogging, there was the novelty of the whole thing. I could post something with this service, and they would put it up on the internet. It was new, it was cool, and I was excited about it. My posts didn't have much sense to them (not that they do now... no comments), but it was fun.

Then I felt like I was on a mission. I started doing book reviews and little lessons from the Bible. The teacher in me felt it necessary to post things with meaning to them: something that would leave my readers thinking.

Then I felt like I was in bondage to the blog. I couldn't get away from it. If I didn't post nearly everyday, I felt like I was letting the internet down or something. Stupid, I know. But I still felt that way. This was right about the same time that I started paying attention to my different statcounters. I wanted the numbers, and I knew that the best way to keep the numbers up was to post everyday.

Now I am back to the fun stage. I post when something crosses my mind. OR if I find something interesting on the internet or in the news. Some family stuff makes it on here. Quirky little thoughts make it here. You might find a verse or two on here and my thoughts on those things, but don't get antsy if I don't post... :)

If there is one thing that I have learned about blogs, the blog usually reveals about 5% of the person at most. It is easy to think that the blogs that you read are telling you everything about the person, but that is so far from the truth.

So anyway, if I have an interesting thought, it might make it to the blog, it might not. Even now, I have a little more that I would like to say, but frankly I am tired of typing.

So I will see you all around!


  1. So in less are having fun.

  2. The decision of what to blog and what not to blog can be a tough one.

    I want people to be able to get to know me but there are many things that are private that you won't read about on my blog. That privacy isn't so much an issue for me but I need to remember that I have a beautiful wife and two adorable kids whose privacy needs to be protected.

  3. Don't worry about lack of comments. Just like sometimes you don't blog because it doesn't make sense to, sometimes I don't comment because I have nothing great to add.

    Glad you're having fun, though, since this is a fun blog :)

  4. Thankyou very much... seriously!


Leave a thought of your own.
