I’ve never done much posting in forums or blogs, so this blog is new territory for me.
And wow, I am amazed at myself. The things I am tempted to write (and maybe occassionally do write) in the posts and comments reveal pride, anger, and an ego that I have never before experienced. Sure, I have some theological disagreements with some of those who make comments, but I don’t think I would get this upset if I were having a face-to-face conversation.
So I apologize. I thought about going back and deleting some of my comments, but then I figured, “Trying to hide my faults is only more pride.” Besides, I do say some good things in some of those comments. (There goes my pride again! Ha ha). So my dirty blog laundry is out for all to see. I have a monster within me, and he sometimes fights to get out.
Another factor of the blog monster I did not consider is the amount of time that blogging can consume. I am too busy to do the things that are already on my plate, let alone taking time to read and write comments.
If those of you who have more experience blogging than I do can give me some me some tips on how to control the blog monster, I would appreciate it. Maybe just more prayer and more time between reading comments and responding to them is all I need.
