Archives For twitter

I was talking to my buddy Conner the other day about “blogging”. We both agreed that blogging has changed. It used to be, at least for us, about community AND about getting things off your chest. Then came Facebook and Twitter. Two sites that hold a dear place in my heart and I will be the first to tell people to jump on board, but they changed things.

Twitter and facebook seemed to have killed blogging for the guys like us. All the community is on those sites now. If you are a “big” blogger then you still have community on your blog, but for guys like us with only a few hundred followers and tiny lurkers (i don’t mean they are midgets) we don’t.

If you are not a lurker and are a blogger what are your thoughts on blogging these days? Has it changed for you?

So now what? Well first off I have always used my blog as a place to rattle off the great things God is doing in my life so I will try to get better at being as frequent as I used to be because I miss writing. Where else to go? I have no flippin clue. Ha ha..

All I can say is this blog has been up for almost 4 years and almost 300k visits and I still love it.

In four days I will be flying out to Nasville to attend the re:create “un-conference”. I am very excited to be able to go to this think tank and learn from my peers how better to get the good news to hit home with people.

I also get to meet come of my blogging friends like Fred, Alastair, Tam, Brent, Chris, Paul…and meet some people that I have wanted to for a while like Anne, Los, randy, john, Jim etc.

I feel beyond privaledged to be going and learning and at the same time enjoying a week of God, great food and amazing worship.

Worship is with michael w. smith, steve fee, merideth andrews, andrew shust and others.

I have heard so much about how amazing this conference is and I truly can’t wait to get there.

I will be rooming with the famous Fred Mckinnon (im bringing earplugs…uh for both of us). I think we are going to try to keep both of our readers updated frequesntly with text, video, twitter and pics so keep watch.

Fred and I get in at the same time and we will be meeting up with a bunch of bloggers at some restaurant there which should be a blast.

Here is the end of this…I want to see people in my community truly understand the grace of God and cash in on what he has given us. I’m praying I come home with some more tools to be able to be more effective in the ministry God has me in.

Twitter is God breathed

straight from the word! God believed in twitter too

ht: H3

I’ve seen this question posed everywhere. What if Jesus used twitter…what would he say.

I think it would go like this:

@church I’m coming soon

@church Stop making me look bad

@church be still and know I am God

@church Love mercy, act justly and walk humbly with me

@self Boy do I make great things

@twitter If I had created the site…it would actually work.
