blog “open mic”

This is the 2nd blog “open mic” I’ve hosted here.  I hosted the first “open mic” several months ago after randomly feeling inspired to do so and got some interesting stuff.

What is a blog open mic? It’s simply a digital version of an OPEN MIC. The pic above is from an Open Mic we host at Q Cafe on Tuesday nights from 6-9pm for those that want to actually get on a small stage and get your talent on. In the comment section on this post, you can share anything – [well, almost anything]:

why blogging matters

I want to encourage YOU to start blogging…especially those who email me regularly about what I should blog about.  🙂  My response:  “Hey, you blog about it!”

And not because there’s money, power, and fame in blogging but because it gives you a chance to express your voice and engage in an ever interconnected world.  Check out this video.  Granted, it sounds like an overdone commerical for WordPress but is also a simple reminder of the influence of blogging.

As for why I blog, I’ve shared it on couple occassions before but I’ll share it again.  Is blogging time consuming?  Read the rest of this entry »

496 posts, 7204 comments, 33604 spam, and $20,400 raised

I’ve been encouraged by the number of folks that read my blog.  I had no idea that people had nothing better to do.  According to the blog’s statistics since its inception in 2006, I’ve written 496 posts, received about 517,300+ hits and 7219 comments, and 33,746 pieces of spam.  The blog averages about 900 visitors each day although a good handful are from weirdos that google “beautiful depraved Asian cuties.”  What a huge disappointment it must be for them to stumble onto a pastor’s blog!

I want to thank you for reading my blog and I do hope that the blog is a source of encouragement to you in some way or another.  I have certainly enjoyed the opportunity to share my vomitaceous thoughts Read the rest of this entry »

2007 blog review

This past year was my first full year blogging.  After sporadic and pathetic attempts in years past, I took the plunge midway through 2006.  It began with a post or two per week and now, I try to post daily Monday-Friday [like a good blog disciple of Scot McKnight].  In fact, I’ve carved out 11.30-Midnight each night for blogging unless circumstances come up.   While the blog is accomplishing the below mentioned “purposes,” it has also taken a life of its own…I appreciate those who’ve chosen to journey with me through this venue.  If you’re relatively new to the blog, you can subscribe to it here.

In retrospect, I wished I chose to blog faithfully much earlier.  It would have been valuable – even now – for myself [and perhaps for others] to see some of my earlier vomitaceous thoughts. Read the rest of this entry »
