He sent the people away (Look, links!)

I haven't added these links lately, but it occurs to me that it might be courteous to point out the blogs I've linked to on the sidebar. I wasn't originally going to do that, since I'm not really thinking of this as a blog per se, and I wasn't sure I really even wanted links at all, but what the heck, there are others out there writing interesting stuff, and they're worth checking out.

Actually, what got me thinking about this is that "I Read Leviticus So You Don't Have To" has finally gotten underway. For a while, there was only an introductory post, and I thought it was a project being left by the wayside, but now there are many good posts with some great writing. Furthermore, since Bob's been linking people back to me, I figure I ought to return the favor. I will warn you all that it's not good reading for the easily offended. (You can read his disclaimer.)

"A Messy Faith" is one among many blogs of a friend of mine who is a professional writer. Although his posting is probably as sporadic as mine, he's a much better writer, and his blog touches a lot on the moments of the Christian life where we remember that following God not only doesn't make life easier, but sometimes makes it harder, it seems. Actually, he's apparently recently renamed his blog to "The Recovering Christian" so I suppose I should update my link.

"Stumbling to Bethlehem" is the blog of my friend Victoria, who doesn't need my promotion of her blog, since it's a very popular one. She's just much more of an interesting person than I am, no doubt, and also posts regularly, completely unlike me. A very spiritual woman that I have intense respect for, she's a person whose blog you don't want to miss if you're really into blogs about Christianity, cat ownership, or the Atkins diet.

I don't personally know the writer of "Goosing the Antithesis", and in the very few online interactions I've had with him, he's been a real jerk, to be honest. Still, I found some value in linking to a blog that might likely deal with similar subjects to my own from a very different perspective. Of course, it's been a while since I read stuff over there, and they've changed their description to start, "We attack Christians..." so I'd suggest one tread lightly. If you read the whole description, I'm taking that a bit out of context, though, and really, the writers do have some good insights. I'd spend a lot more time reading their stuff if I had the time for it.

Oh, yeah, there's also "Running from Elevators" which is my second blog. I post there perhaps even less frequently than here, but the content is a bit more free-ranging, so it could be more interesting, or maybe mind-numbingly boring, I don't know.

Have a great weekend!

I'm sorry if I appeared to be a jerk. But... that's probably because I am. I don't know who you are, though ?

Oh, I posted a response to one of your entries about I.D. some time ago. I take I.D. with a grain of salt, but I also had some issues with your post on the subject, which you dismissed outright without (direct) response. I suppose I can be grateful to have been allowed the last word on the matter at least. ; )

I had originally commented here. Now, I've added a new comment here, which is more in line with the content of this blog anyway.

Oh ok.

Your April 1 entry was a joke, wasn't it Brucker? You're not giving up on the ASAB, are you?

Brucker said...

Yeah, I think I said so in the comments. I've been busy, and I let myself get caught up in my other blog for a while.

Now that I see it's been over a month since I posted, I really, really ought to get back to business on this. (Heck, if I'd just been on the ball since I started Exodus, I could have hit the passages regarding Passover *during* Passover, which would have been cool. Oh well...)

In response to your comment on my LJ...well if you do blog and it's in public domain, people do randomly come across it sometimes :P

*prods* It's may, update *prods*

and 2 blogs? Now that's just greedy

Tiauha said...

maybe if you comment enough , it'll turn into a decent size post?

Brucker said...

Yeah, I know I need to update, especially since I am still considering this blog to be my daily devotional. Obviously, I'm a bit off track on that.

As for the two blogs, this blog exists for a very specific purpose,(read the July 2005 archive), while I created my other blog for more general musings of the personal sort. There is some overlap, but I have good reason for multiple blogs.

Actually, I considered creating a third blog for personal musings of a non-spiritual nature, but I'm not sure whether that might be pushing it a bit.
