In some ways, Christians have been “blogging” for years. Think about it, for decades we’ve been journaling our thoughts. Scribbling down every little idea that flits across our heads into a journal. I use Moleskine notebooks because they make my words feel “fancy” and important, but there are a million ways to turn yourself into a scribe. My only warning would be that you should really resist the urge to read people what you wrote in your journal. I once went on a date with a girl who pulled out a pillowcase full of journals when we went back to her apartment. She started to read from one and I had to act quickly. I threw a rock into the kitchen and when she turned to look at the noise I climbed out a window. Seriously, reading your journal to people is like telling them about a dream you had. No one really wants to hear that last night Kirk Cameron, who was made for this list, was in your dream only he had feet like a platypus and was able to speak 12 languages and only drank Vitamin Water and do you think that’s something from God?
p.s. I see the irony of telling you not to share journal thoughts on a site that is essentially journal thoughts. That is rich sir, rich indeed.
