I have been blogging for 5 years this month (started this trip in Dec 2005).
What I love about blogging is the personal interaction with people from a variety of backgrounds – and getting that feedback about some of the things you think and believe. Doing this for 5 years has helped me to change a lot of my views via questioning and research.
People don’t realize how secluded they are from the larger world outside them. Until social networking exploded. Blogging is part of that social networking. I also love facebook because of much of these same reasons – interaction on ideas.
I don’t have any plans to stop blogging, for me it is very therapuetic…reminds me of writing music (ie: in its inherent creativity). Plus, I love talking about faith/religion and where it fits in community…fact is most churches wouldn’t have me speak if they wanted to (ie: too much of a rebel and don’t believe many of the same tenets). This is my outlet.
