Why blog: Introspection (Part 1)

Click here for Part 2 —>

The task of putting pen to paper is of great value to any human mind. Our thoughts tend to flutter about in our psyches until such time as they find resonance in word or writ. The fruit of studying, contemplating and meditating upon Scripture is sometimes crystallised during the process of recording our understanding in black and white. It’s as if the intangible becomes tangible, the amorphous takes shape.

When one starts out blogging one’s likely to get about 5 hits a day (you, your wife, your mom and two strangers who’s only intention is to spam… 感叹词). I’d suggest that introspection needs to be a motivation lest the beginner falter and become discouraged.

South Christian African Bloggers who I believe really get this right:

Jenny Hillebrand

Jenny Hillebrand, a student minister in the Methodist Church of Southern Africa and based at the Seth Mokitimi Methodist Seminary in Pietermaritzburg. She writes a post a day and keeps it personal, challenging and sometimes catches me completely off gaurd.

Steven Jones

Steven Jones is a bit off the wall. He’s witty, dynamic and has enough of a rouge streak in him to keep any conversation going. I like him. He’ll make a practical minister one day. Unfortunately, he too is Methodist. *Sigh*.

I’ve said this before and I’m sure I’ll say it again, the Methodists are far ahead of the rest of the pack in the South African blogsphere. They’re creating the conversations and interactions while the rest of us sit back and watch.

Others I believe are in this category are: Along “The Way”, Matthew 6:25 – 34, Ryan Peter Blogs and stuff and Reformed and Renewed
