One Year of Blogging
One year ago today, the Comings Communiqué was born. I must say that blogging has been a tremendous experience for me.
When I first started out, I wrote about anything and everything. It was my goal to write something…anything…for every day. I soon discovered, however, that quantity is no substitute for quality. After about 100 articles, I made the decision to write exclusively on two subjects: missions and Brazil. The result has been a much more focused (and, hopefully, much more edifying) blog.
Many bloggers have been an inspiration to me along the way. Kevin Davis got me started, and patiently tutored a guy who was light-years behind him in technological savvy. Irene Q inspired me as to the potential of a weblog. Tim over at Missions Safari has been a model as far as missionary blogging, and, more recently, Joe Missionary—be sure to check out his "Theology Thursday"—has been an inspiration. He and the Faith Gambler, along with Nikkiana and Kevin, are also the reason why I am a slimy molusk--instead of an insignificant microbe--on the TTLB ecosystem. Finally, the folks over at blogs4God have been a wonderful resource for the Christian blogger.
I really feel that, in today’s world, blogging is a tool that should be explored, embraced, and exploited by missionaries, as a means of getting their message out to a global audience. I know that I plan to blog for the foreseeable future.
