Blogging Sabatical Over . . .

I have been pondering the value of my blogging.  When I began writing I wanted to create a community for myself.  I lived too far away (2.5hrs) from my seminary’s campus to build many relationships with my fellow classmates (although I have great friends from the seminary).  I drove up there for classes, but I didn’t spend much additional time on campus.  Therefore, my fellow bibliobloggers provided much of the banter and debate that I missed not living on campus.

Today, I am no longer a full-time student.  Many of the bloggers that I dialoged with are no longer writing, and their blogs are now dormant or worse deleted.  All of this made me wonder if I should continue this blog.  However, I realize that I miss the interactive nature of expressing ideas using this medium.  So, my blogging sabbatical is over.

On a related note, if anyone knows of any other bibliobloggers that are still active, then please drop their urls in the comment section of this post.  I would love to update my side column with living blogs.

  • I’ve been trying to blog enough to stay on the “active” list, while processing my own thinking on why I blog. You’re still on my reader, so I look 4ward to whatever comes across!

  • I’ve been on extended hiatus due to a massive teaching load, but I’m hoping to get back on the wagon next month. I’ve been formulating an extensive series on Gilgamesh but haven’t had the time to post.

    Hello, Jim. I look forward to reading your series on Gilgamesh. Your blog was one of the many I enjoyed reading!

    Hey, Brooke. You have been much more successful staying on the “active” lists, than I have been. I’m glad to hear that you too are still writing in the biblioblogging world. At some point I hope that you are willing to blog about the integration of technology with your personal pedagogy. Some of the things you have mentioned on twitter in the past sounds fascinating. Also, thanks for keeping me in your reader.
