Isn't it funny how it seems to be the 'in thing' to question whether one should continue to blog or not. I have lost count of the number of people who have given up recently. It seems to be that people (and I am referring to no one in particular) are imposing rules on their own blogs and why they do it. Which seems a little strange to me. I mean this is MY blog. I write it for me really. Yes it's nice to get some comments and feedback, and I would be lying if I said don't smile a little when I see I have a new follower. BUT actually it's not about any of you, it's about me getting stuff off my chest. You don't have to read it if you don't want to and I don't temper what I write in case one of you doesn't like it. (no offence :) )
However over the last few weeks I have not blogged as much as usual. Partly because it's the summer hols (oh the joys...) and partly because I have found myself a bit boring of late...
I did start writing this blog some 8 months ago (I think...) to chronicle my journey as a new Christian, partly as a diary of sorts but also I had this vain picture that it might help other new Christians. What has actually happened is that I have challenged myself (or God has) in my own writing, and in reading others comments or others blogs, in various areas of my life, not just faith. This has been unbelievably valuable and I have been surprised at how much I have appreciated others thoughts, concerns and comments when for most of you, we have never met. So in actual fact it has been more of a help to me than anyone else!
I am not sure where I am going with this... bit of a ramble, sorry... I had started writing about something else (will post that later, it is far more interesting than this nonsense), but got sidetracked. Anyway I think what I am trying to say is that on this blog there are no rules. I blog when I feel like it, not because I set myself the task of posting every day, every week or 7 1/2 times a month, just when I feel the need to. It does have a theme in that is related to my journey of faith but I do veer from time to time onto a, possibly only slightly, related subject. But what there is, is me. I won't apologise if one day I take a complete about turn on an issue or if I go against the grain, I am just being me.
So, there, thats said, now onto something more interesting (possibly only slightly...)
