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]:

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. [h/t depraved tyler]
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 »

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 »

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 »
