My Hope

What do I hope this blog will be? I personally hope this will be a place for me to post my thoughts and reflections. My past blogs, as most of you know weren't maintained regularly. Life just get's in the way, and we don't have time.

I'm not really sure why I've decided to try to start up again. I guess I'm just feeling like I'm not getting enough communication with friends. I really want this blog to not be something public that everybody I know sees, but a place where I can get the opinions of people I respect and trust.

I personally feel it would be beneficial to me at least-to try to post something at least once a week. You know, like a Bible verse that really helped me out this week; or some experience I had this week.

So, if you have a couple minutes to go to this blog and see what I'm up to, and comment on something-that'd be great. If anyone else is interested in blogging again-I'll link you. I'll only be linking to people who actually plan on updating their blogs. Maybe I'll even make a page that people can link to so you can see which blogs have been updated.

Well, I think that's enough writing for tonight. Maybe I'll post something about Reformation Day tomorrow if I get a chance.

Once Again

I find myself here again blogging. Tiring of Facebook and all it's applications and neat features. I miss the good old blogging where I could write for pages and pages and know that at least somebody was reading it.

I miss the times when blogs were productive and beneficial to all who read. Why did we stop the personal reflection and conversation with our peers? Why are we settling for random comments on photos and pokes?

Yes, these are fun, but are they rewarding? I know it can be so convenient to just log-in and do something quick... I'm finding that those little quick things don't accomplish very much. Does anybody else miss the genuineness of writing something worthwhile?

Don't get me wrong, I know we're all busy. In past years, I never could really understand what it meant to not have time to go checking blogs and things. Now that I have a couple jobs I begin to see what it means to have a job and be soo busy. Yeah, it's cool to be able to let someone know you're thinking about hem with a quick "hug" or something. I just think that possibly in the 10 minutes it takes to load SuperPoke pages or wall posts, we could be writing something meaningful for all to see.

I don't know... On one hand I even think this suggestion itself is unreasonable, but what are your thoughts?
