Do you find yourself distracted during dinner because you want to see your hits for the day?

Do you put off using the bathroom because you are playing with technorati?

Do you click other peoples sitemeter buttons to make yourself feel better?

etc etc etc

Of course there is more, but when you start blogging you think “wow…3 people are reading my blog…woot” and then it becomes as addictive as crack. Thats right you move on to the hard stuff. Google Analytics, technorati, top blog area etc. And then you realize you can not function without looking at stats ALL DAY. and making sure people subscribe to you all the time.

Sara Groves new CD coming

August 23, 2007 — 7 Comments

If You are a reader on this blog then you know full well how I feel about Sara Groves. In particular her last CD Add to the Beauty. I consider that CD to be one of the top 10 CD’s of the last 20 years. If you haven’t bought it yet…get on it. With that said on her site she announced a new CD

On November 6th, INO Records will be releasing Sara’s new album “Tell Me What You Know”.

Sara says on her site:

“My life has been so changed and challenged in the last couple of years by people who have endured incredible hardship around the world, and by the people who have come alongside them working as what I imagine Jesus intended when he called us His Body. Where I used to see politics, poverty and detached social agendas, I now see people. This album is about people, and the defiance of their hope, it is about freedom, both spiritual and physical, and it is about what I have yet to learn about God from my neighbors who have gone to the places where courage is required, and have found a deeper understanding of Christ and his suffering, his redemption, and his joy.”
