The Blog World

Until I began blogging myself, I never realized how large the blogging community really was. I mentioned the word "blog" at a Bible Study and the looks I received back were blank stares, thinking perhaps maybe it was a viral strain that they should avoid. So it seems that bloggers are the ones who know about blogs.

And each community has a unique feel to it. There are the "mommy blogs", "writer blogs", "political blogs", "knitting blogs", "pet blogs", "computer-geek blogs", "spiritual blogs" - you name it I bet there's a blog out there for you.

I read all sorts of blogs, a past-time I will probably need to confess an addiction to before too long. But it's not great info that interests me most. It's people - working out the everyday issues of their faith. I'll admit that I'm still trying to figure out what I want this blog to be. Blogs need focus if they are to gain a dedicated audience, but writing about "one topic only" stifles me in a way that makes me not want to continue.

So I went back to my vision statement - the sentence that describes my passion - and the purpose that I believe that I'm here on this earth. Maybe that's what my blog is - and perhaps focusing on that purpose, it will cause it to be a more cohesive whole.

So what is my vision statement? Hmmm, maybe that's a topic in itself.
