Turns out that I can’t not blog. I have too many things I want to say. I thought that it would just go away if I didn’t blog for a while, but it didn’t. For now, I’m redoing my blogroll, setting up my news / blog aggregator, probably changing to WordPress or something like that, and thinking hard about the character of my blogging going forward – questions like what I ought to blog about, how much I should blog, etc.
I wrote this to a friend about my lack of blogging:
I’m starting to prefer small, personal, ongoing conversation, to anonymous, big, “thus saith my blog” writing. Our religion was started by one guy with twelve followers. The Bible says there is no end to the making of books, and elsewhere that not many of us should presume to be teachers. Blogging just doesn’t seem to fit well with that.
If I have something really spectularly important to say, I’ll write a book. Otherwise, I’ll teach my Sunday School class at church, teach my family, and discuss with my friends.
Overall, friends are better than links, small is better than large, relational is better than impersonal, and silence is better than my ramblings.
I don’t know exactly how that works out practically, but I want to blog in line with that.
So anyway, stay tuned (if there’s anyone left). I plan on resuming blogging early next week.
