I received a copy of The Blogging Church in the mail yesterday because of this. My first thought when I heard about the book was “I’m 25. I work in church. I have a blog. I have a blog for the church. I even read the blogs of pastors and others. Will this give me anything new?”
But after a quick flip through, I’m excited to go back and look at some sections in depth. Here’s why:
- It seems to have a diversity of thought and some good tips on how to hone in on what you’re doing.
- It will be a great tool for explaining and teaching those around me who aren’t as “native” to the blog or internet world why blogs can be a great means of communication.
Sometimes you need new language to cast vision. I think parts of this book will help me understand the why behind some of the things I’m already doing as well as hone and grow those skills.
