Mr. Miss

I miss it. Blogging. I don't do it nearly as often as I once did. Perhaps the new role is to blame. Maybe I'm too busy. It could be that I'm out of stuff to say...I doubt it. It might be that when I changed my format I lost some stuff like links, hit counter, etc... Maybe it is that blogging is a discipline or a habit and I'm just out of blogging shape. I don't know what it is...but I sure do miss it.

It isn't the posts that I miss either. Solomon says there is nothing new under the sun. There are plenty of great posts out there too. I miss the little community that forms as a result of a post. The posts were just vehicles to take us to conversation. And in some weird, world wide web way, the conversations, albeit with people I've never even seen in person, were a vehicle to take us to relationship.

I guess I miss the relationship.

Ditto here, Joel. I'm going to keep you on a Bloglines subscription as long as you say you're still writing, so I'll catch you when you do write.

Peace.

I am addicted to blogs so by all means if you have something to say, say it brother, you never know what mundane conversation may spark the profound. I have been blessed already by blog more than I could have ever imagined. Amy Cooper.

Nice to know you're still out there, bro.

Maybe you aren't blogging because you use words like "albeit" and you know secretly some of us are laughing at you!!!!

Joel,
I too enjoy the community and conversation...we do check in regularly and I'm glad to see something new...I had found your blog when you were back in Abilene and noticed that things slowed down a bit on the blog once you moved to the city! I bet things haven't slowed down in your "other" life at all though.
