I Give Up

Practically the whole world is blogging...except me. Well, I've finally given up and decided, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." Actually, I'm looking forward to the whole blogging experience. So, here are the possible predictions for the future of my blogging life:

1. The entire world will find my blog to be incredibly stimulating and productive, and my blog will start a major revolution/reformation among humankind the world over.

2. The evangelical world will enjoy reading and interacting with my blog, and my blog may actually become the catalyst for something good and useful.

3. My friends and family will read my blog and may even humor me by posting their own thoughts once in a while.

4. People that I don't know will read my blog at 2:30 in the morning and wonder why they live such pathetic lives.

5. No one will even know my blog exists and I will develop an alternate personality named Charlie that will post comments on my own blog for a while before the little men with white coats insist on my beginning therapy.

Now, there's no way to really know which of those predictions will come true, but as I read back over them, I think any of them would be a life-changing experience for me! There you have it: optimism at its...best? The real plans for this blog, of course, are more visionary than "multiple personality disorder." I would like to be able to communicate with my friends about wonderful things God is doing in my life and the life of my family. I would also enjoy being able to interact with other people on topics that, frankly, I find interesting.

If you're reading this post, someone (probably me) obviously told you about my blog. If you see value here or even potential value, pass the word along! By the way, if you think you have something worthwhile to say, have at it! Welcome to Anwoth!

If you start seeing men in white coats just do what they say and nobody will get hurt. Congradulations and good luck with your blog.

I'm not blogging yet... so you’re definitely not the last person to start blogging ;) But I really do enjoy reading blogs at two in the morning. Also, it is quite unusual for me to post unless I get worked up about something.

Good luck on your new blog williamdlee!!!

This could be interesting if I can remember how to access it while on the road.

I've never posted on a blog either, so you can't feel so bad. I'm interested to see where this leads.

Well welcome to the blogging world. I feel a little like I just stepped through the back of the Wardrobe into the strange land of Narnia! It ought to be fun.

SO, what are we going to be blogging about? Current events, personal stories, or what?

If you begin to have troubles with "Charlie", then definitely send me a line right away. I can get you in touch with the right people. :)
Seriously, I'm glad that I will be able to keep up with you, my old friend, through this new way of communication. I am still slow to blog, but Thomas has set up a site for us, also. I hope it's all right to mention it here, not trying to steal any attention from your grand site, I promise. We're at www.siberiangrits.com if you would like to check it out.
May God bless you as you continue to serve Him and glorify Him in every area of your life.

Hi Will! So I'm a little slow on the welcoming and all, but I've been busy/sick/etc etc. Glad you finally caved in. I'll be a regular.

I'll even put you on my blogroll, which is sure to mean you will have countless traffic from across the world far surpassing your wildest optimistic hopes for your blog.

As for the emailing notification thing, dunno much about blogger. I have a fake account just so I can comment on blogger id-only sites, but never use the blog with it.

David, glad you stopped by. I look forward to the endless amount of traffic you'll be sending my way! ;)
