Second, there has been some controversy in blog circles of late that a blog is only for the self absorbed. Quote by a guy:
As a rule I think that blogs in and of themselves are absolute jokes. I think it is one of the highest acts of vanity to have your own blog. A webpage of your own where you write to tell the world or whoever wants to read it of your boring, mundane everyday activities. A blog is not a journal. A journal is intended for private use; an intimate conversation that the journalist has with themselves for any number of reasons. A blog is a public place where the blogger has a venue to try to impress upon their readership that they are deep, rationalizing, emontionally connected, contemplative, people with active busy lives that matter. [sic]I'm not going to bother telling you who the individual was who wrote this in his blog because a)he won't read this, and b)since he has such a scathing contempt for blogs he will have to admit that this blog comment itself is not to be taken seriously... I rest my case.
For the record, my blog is only partially self absorbed. The other motivation is to allow my friends and family far and near to feel informed and involved in the growth and development of my and my children's lives. Ultimately though, I hope that my blog will be a testimony of God's grace in day to day living. Reflecting upon God's blessings and the paths we've travelled is a biblical concept (check out Psalms 78, 106, 107, and 136) that can and should result in praise to our God who directs our paths.
