Blogging: What a pain! Therefore, I give myself a challenge

Blogging: What a pain! Therefore, I give myself a challenge

I started this blog way back in 2004, which means I have blogged for 14 years. Well, my last entry was in June 2014 though it was to sell a couple of tee shirt, which, by the way did not sell. Over the last ten years, it has been an amazing journey of self-discovery as well as finding some great friend as well as finding some very mean people. If you have been a consistent reader over the years, you probably have seen me gain much better writing skills as well as work out some heavy topics. You have read about the birth of my son and daughter. You have read about my immersion into the Emerging Movement. You read about my struggles with those who commented only to condemn me to hell, prayed for me after reading about my stoke, as well as felt my frustration after my assault where the three men who assaulted me were not brought to justice, and how I have chosen to forgive instead of go after them.

It has been an eventful 14 years.

One reason I decided to blog was that I enjoyed writing. When I decided to go back to school, I found that it took care of my writing desire, as I had to write paper after paper. So, many of the last posts have been school papers. I hope these papers have been good reading. I have even self-published one paper as a short book via[1] I believe it to be the ugliest cover a book could ever have! LOL! The book covers the history of the word “Logos” giving the behind the scenes overview as to why John chose to use that word. OK, enough of the self-promotional plug, though if anyone is interested in buy the tee-shirts let me know and I will get the campaign up and running again—you just need to get around 20 friends to also buy one.

Well, this brings me to the “why” of this post. I guess it is a self-challenge of sorts. I am challenging myself to write one blog post a weak. This will not count my other blogs such as the infamous ODMafia site that is also being revamped by my good Canadian friend TruthSlayer. So, if you have a blog, or just want to write leave a comment that you also want to pick up this challenge. I hope this rekindles that love for writing for you as well as for me.
