2 thoughts on “so why do you read blogs?

  1. I follow different sorts of blogs, and what I want from them varies widely. From vox.com, I want accurate, concise new summary. At http://rhetoricraceandreligion.blogspot.com/, I’m look for insight into what others interested in the same issues that I am are thinking. From http://www.peacebang.com/, I’m looking for passionate, thoughtful reflection on the life of the church. At Matt’s blog (http://mmathews.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/11/temptation), I’m hoping to find a new way into seeing to balance out my activist’s temperament.

    The students in my Health Equity internship are required to contribute to the class blog, and in that case, I’m looking for evidence that their conversations in peer groups outside of class are bearing fruit. I also read a lot of bike-related blogs. There I’m just feeding the obsession!

    From a blog like yours, I think I’m hoping to find good writing, thoughtful, theological insight into how we live with integrity in a world where we cannot meet all of our obligations to do justice, or live kindness, or even to walk humbly. I’m also hoping for a lively and diverse community of commenters who will engage with each other with respect and compassion.

    Best wishes for this new venture. I’ll check back in whenever I see a new post go up.

  2. Why do I read blogs? Well mainly because I would like to improve my English and reading seems to be very helpful. Also, I am looking for educational and inspiring blogs that could help me with my personal development since the University I go to is not very good at inspiring their students which I find really sad and feel like I am missing important lessons in live. Fortunately, I did meet one professor who is inspiring and gave me the courage to step out of my comfort zone. So here I am, new to blogging as well and sharing my experiences online. 🙂

    I hope you find what you are looking for out here as well and I am looking forward to your next blog.
