I once again had the privilege of posting our pastor’s Monday Morning Review this week while he is on vacation. It’s a little tribute to Rahab and other mothers.
If you have a few minutes, check it out and give his blog a nice little traffic boost.
I once again had the good fortune of writing our pastor’s Monday Morning Review yesterday.
A lot of great things are happening at EFC, so it was much more of a recap and look ahead. If you have a minute, give it a look.
I just found this blog (The Roscoe Hard Times) about my hometown on facebook, so I had to share.
It’s fairly new, but all you old Plowboys out there can keep up with the happenings of Roscoe, TX, USA from the comfort of your laptop or smartphone.
Give it a look.
I want to plug my cousin-in-law’s blog, Life in Mute. It’s a blog about hearing impiaredness, life and deafness-related issues.
When you get a chance, give it a look.
I couldn’t resist. I loved this theme. It’s Fusion.
Not 24 hours after announcing my lack of a comment policy and confessing sympathy for even spam commenters, I have been forced to reconsider.
And I am faced with a dilemma. To ban or not to ban?
Actually, “ban” is a bit harsh. I probably wouldn’t permanently ban anyone, but on my post The Difference Between Men & Women-When Clothes Are Dirty? a commenter referring to him or herself as “Jesus Christ” left the following:
1915: 1.8 Billion people,
2010: 6.8 Billion people,
95 years: 5 Billion people,
2310: 22 Billion people,
Solution to problem: Stop Creating Babies
The comment is (1) anonymous, (2) irrelevant, and (3) somewhat bothersome to me (the father of a 2 year old cutie pie). I realize this blog is not a democracy, and I can do whatever I please ultimately.
But, dear readers, I am asking for your input (and trying out the WP poll feature):
I don’t have one. I never really have. And I’ve never felt the need.
In fact, I am so forgiving with comments that I occasionally allow spam through just because I feel sorry for anyone who feels they have to spam others.
But, if I did have a comment policy, it would be summed up in Nick’s addendum to his.
Regular readers will know that from time to time I write my pastor’s Monday Morning Review on his blog of same name.
It’s typically a recap of the previous day’s sermon and the goings on of our church. However, all of you non-member, iPhone/smartphone users might be interested in my short list of free Bible apps (there’s 5 to be exact) about midway through the post.
This may be something of an oxymoron, but I’ve been contemplating writing a writer’s block blog: a place to write about writer’s block.
I actually don’t feel blocked at the moment, rather somewhat overwhelmed by having so much I want to write about. But, I think a place for writers to share their angst would be a welcomed place to hang out.
The idea has an interesting beginning. I was observing the artists at our church do “art fusion,” where each artist begins a sketch, painting, etc., then they rotate and add their respective take to each piece. The progression of it all is quite amazing. And it struck me that this would be something that could be useful for writers.
I have numerous unfinished books, stories, and other projects that could benefit from a shot fresh perspective. And I doubt I’m alone in this. I suspect finished works are more valuable than unfinished works even if credit has to be shared. “Writing fusion” is only one possibility. It would probably be mostly tips, thoughts, observations, and other random stuff for writers to chew on.
So, do you think anyone would participate (I’m not asking for commitments, just thoughts about the idea)?
