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.
