This weblog thing is addictive! I find myself at my computer waaaay too much. Reading other blogs, checking mine, thinking of something good to say on my next post. waiting for something to change.

I am going to leave and try not to think about it until I come back.

see ya later

blogs are an option for families that have distance ,limited time,etc. between each other,
otherwise they would lose touch.
this can be a positive thing!

Yes, it is addictive. At least to me. My oldest son introduced it to me when I was going through a rough time in my life. Blogging helped me maintain my sanity. It gave me something productive to keep my mind on. I mean my mind and heart is always on my Savior, but my flesh is weak and having something new to learn, like html and creating a blogspot, was a good thing. I worried when I felt I had became obsessed with it and I prayed about it. But God has lead me to other Christian sites so I feel He is telling me as long as I use it for witnessing for Christ; I am okay. And when I find sites that lead me to more Bible study like yours; I am inspired! My comment for your ministry thesis: I have always wanted others to see Christ in me. I love your "talk the talk" post. That is what I have tried to do with my life.

Ahh, you have the bug.

You shouldn't feel too bad. Usually it takes somebody a couple of months of addiction before they realize they need to cut back. Kudos!

Welcome to the Blogosphere, Sir Read.

It is truly amazing to see what kinds of posts get what kind of reactions. The posts that I would tend to think would get the most, get the least, and the ones I would think would just get a chuckle, get the most.

very interesting

there should be some 12-step program for bloggers. "hello, my name is _____ and i blog."

Indeed... generally, the succinct summations of truth get very little discussion, I think because people rarely disagree, or else have no heart to try and drum up dissagreement. Either that or it strikes to close to home, and posting would open themselves up more so than they would like.

On the other hand, light hearted posts are easy to talk about, offer no real emotional blocks, and are open to a lot of contribution.

If you really want to start a lot of discussion, say something controversial. People are always ready to give their opinion on something they feel strongly about, that most people dissagree with. It's all been said before, but they don't mind saying it again.

Incidently, the bug runs its course in a few months... Its after that that it becomes a matter really wnating to blog or not.
