Blog I read

In the spirit of DeLurking Week, here are some blogs that I check regularly. In many of these cases I know the people who blog and have commented but there are a few which I don’t know and have no idea that I check their blogs faithfully. I'm glad and thankful that I get to read what these people write. Thanks to bloglines I always know when new posts arrive.

My daughter Bethany has a great blog. It is thoughtful and fun. She is also the primary blogger on the blog of "unnecessary" quotation marks on which I am an occasional contributer. I wish she would post more often but she’s in grad school so I understand. Other family members (especially Meredith) have blogs too but they post a lot less often and Meredith mostly uses hers for pictures. Bethany’s friend Jim has a blog which has no RSS feed which makes me actually go look at it instead of using bloglines.

Other people I really know:

  • My good friends Ron and Deb have a great blog – lots of fun, smart, witty and cool.
  • Bethany’s friend and now also my friend Kent has a fun blog when he posts which, due to being in seminary, is also less frequent than I’d like.
  • Mary’s blog is called Preaching to the Choir and I always find her posts interesting and enjoyable.
  • Nathan has a number of blogs going since he’s the official blogger for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship but I find his personal blog more fun.

People I only know from the internet but who now also know me:

  • Beth from U2 Sermons has been a great person to learn from and to discuss ideas related to faith and U2. Her blogs are always informative and interesting.
  • And speaking of U2, Cara at Scatter O’ Light has good U2 thoughts as well. I’ve gotten to know her a bit off-blog and that’s been great.
  • My web-friend Father Ron Hatton, who I have also talked to on the phone a few times doesn’t post often but I’ve truly enjoyed his friendship.

Blogs from people who don’t know me at all:

  • Crummy Church Signs is just what it says and it loads of fun.
  • Kinda Kitchy which points out crummy Christian merchandise.
  • Finally film and music critic Jeffrey Overstreet has his Looking Closer blog which I also read daily and enjoy a lot.

Thanks for the link, Bob! It's always nice to see lurkers come out of the woodwork! God bless! Oh, and pray for Diesel at Mattress Police. He lost his brother-in-law today, who was a believer as well.
