Times have been busy as I’ve alluded to a number of times in the last few weeks. By and large, it’s been good. I’ve been reading my fool head off and am nearing my completion of study of Genesis. On to Exodus next of course. With a number of other calls on my time, I’ve found less and less time to devote to just relaxing online and reading blogs. I have missed a goodly number.
This has been a bit lessened in impact by the fact that I’m a daily visitor to FFacebook, and follow any number of links to several blogs a day anyway. I wish a few of my favorite bloggers would join the Facebook interface. I find it highly useful in both promoting my blog, and learning of others I’d not likely run into. I also get a nice bunch of links to good news stories.
As most of you know, my foray into renewing friendships with old classmates hasn’t fared as well. It turns out that my neighborhood turned out to be a hotbed of fundamentalist blubbery. Who could have known. Yet, I’ve had a few pleasant conversations with some who remained undamaged by this brainwashing.
On the other hand, I’ve met a number of friends of other bloggers and have been enriched by their wit, intelligence, and eye for the great news story. Their hearts are deeply in the right place, and I am delighted to find so many passionate and compassionate people.
In any event, I’m here today to alert you to a number of new blogs that I’ve run across. They are rather eclectic (what’s new?) this time. I hope you will stop by a few and see if any of them tickle your fancy.
In the non-believers category, see the following: Atheist Ethicist, and Atheist Revolution. Both are well written and thoughtful. You don’t have to agree, but if you are to understand your faith, you should listen to other voices I believe.
In the category crafting, look up Corner Paint. Vicki does have the most amazing eye for color and her blog is just enjoyable for the beauty she brings together. Eye candy all the way. The blog leans toward decorating ideas.
In the religious category, add, Ancient Hebrew Poetry, Biblia Hibraica, Experimental Theology, Father Jakes Stops the World, God’s Politics, NYT’s Religion and Belief, and Paul of Tarsus. These run the gambit. Some are quite technical and designed for the more serious biblical student, the others are more general and often deal with issues of the day.
That’s it for now. Hope you link up along the side with a few of these and try them out. And I do hope that more of you will go over to Facebook. I think it’s a great way to stay in touch between bloggers, as well as other groups you are interested in.
And just a little tidbit. This traveled around the better circles on Facebook. Hope you like it. It certainly tickled me!
