why i blog

mark batterson posted this - i couldn't really put it any better myself, so i'm just gonna steal what he wrote. i might change the sequence a bit for my own version, and there's one in there about sermons (i don't preach often at all) but i'll leave it as he wrote it - since he did write it.

  • #10 Blogging is a form of digitaldiscipleship. Neo-scrolls.

  • #9 Blogging is the way I share what is happening in my head and my heart.

  • #8 Blogging is cathartic. It helps me process what I'm thinking and feeling.

  • #7 Blogging is the way I leave a trail. My kids and grandkids can read it someday.

  • #6 Blogging is a sermon supplement. Actually, sermons might be a blogging supplement.

  • #5 Blogging is a way to carry on a conversation with lots of people at the same time.

  • #4 Blogging is a form of auto-biography.

  • #3 Blogging is one way of capturing the things God is revealing to me.

  • #2 Blogging helps me remember what God doesn't want me to forget.

  • #1 Blogging is a stewardship issue. It's one way I share what God is teaching me.

now, to help make me feel better about stealing this list from him - go check out his blog here.

i'm inspired now - the more i think about it, the more i really think i should come up with my own. it's too late now to really do that and have it make more sense than this post (which really shouldn't be hard to do....) so i'll save it for another post. for now, that's a decent list that oughtta motivate some of you reader/non-bloggers out there to take the leap. just blog. you'll be glad you did.

Dont feel bad, I steal from Pastor Mark all the time. Have you ever heard him preach? He is amazing. I love how down to earth and humble he is and that he seems so educated and brings in practical world examples. Anyway, it was weird I was just flipping through blogs at random and saw your post and was like "Hey, I know where this is from!" Sorry for the randomness, just couldnt resist.

blogging is also a great way for grandmothers to show off pictures of their grandchildren.
