This thing of blogging is quite new to me, what I am realizing is while it can be a very effective tool, it also requires commitment on my part. I recently created a blog for our church, no one has signed it, so I quit looking at it and haven't written on it. The only response we've had was a spammer who posted a link to his dating service...just what we need. The same guy posted on this blog, both sites have been quickly cleansed. What I realized today is that this blog thing stretches me to really be what I say I am, a life-changer. I am open to change and new things, but in order for those things to take place I must do something...anything...just something. If we do nothing, nothing happens, but if we do something...something happens. I think I'll start blogging more!

Hey there, Neil. Welcome aboard. You meet a ton of people and develop relationships blogging you wouldn't otherwise. And, that guy with the dating service is guranteed to post on your blog at least every couple weeks or so.

Thanks Travis! I appreciate you blogging me...sounds like I've been pounded or something doesn't it? I look forward to chatting with you more!

Where did you move? Look forward to talking as well.

We live in Zephyrhills, FL. Just moved from Wesley Chapel into Zephyrhills, about 11 miles. It was 20-30 minutes everyday, two cars, often a couple times per day, so we moved closer and are loving it. Look forward to connecting more with you as well!

Pastor Neil, I know what you mean, blogging does require commitment. It's a great tool for ministry. And yes, I can't stand the spamming bloggers and the ads. I had a bed & breakfast ad, and some business cards. Keep up the blogging, and God bless.

Hey Neil. Welcome to blogging. I'm pretty new myself, but I'm getting the hang of it. It's a great way for people to see what's going on in your world.
