Here’s to diversifying our blog reading palate.
If you just look for them, there are many interesting and creative peeps contributing to our great WordPress blog community. I just wanted to share some blogs I enjoy that may just pique your interest and become a part of your daily reading.
These are regular folk without conference platforms or names on the marquee (as far as I know) who still have a unique voice that should be heard.
Consider this a virtual shout-out to those unsung who are doing good consistent work even though blogging don’t pay the bills:
Everyone has a story-Bird is winsome, self deprecating, honest and really does have an embarrassment of unique personal stories to tell. You may enjoy her brand of humor about family, religion, and the past junk we all hide in the closet. Most all posts do have a good moral, but none of them feel contrived or soapbox-y.
Of Dust and Kings-TE Hanna has a keen theological mind and loves to share it in a variety of ways on his blog. From posts about theoretical physics to Star Wars, this Methodist minister gives the reader ample spiritual meat to chew on throughout. Give his engaging style a read and get challenged.
Arkenaten’s Blog-South African blogger, Douglas Pearce, has a strong affinity for photography, sweets, and atheism. According to the book excerpts he shares he has a pretty nice talent for writing fiction too. He’s a solid guy that won’t bite, but he will challenge you as a Christian, and I believe that is a good thing.
The Atheist Pastor-A former atheist and current pastor who frequently lowers the boom on the spiritually obese lethargic American church with his writing. Only read if you want a healthy dangerous dose of the biblical truth which may convict, challenge and compel you to reconsider your view of the gospel of Christ.
the Ink Slinger– A very bright seventeen year old kid who muses well about theology, literature, movies, music and all things zombie. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m partially basing my summer reading list on his thorough book reviews. Check him out to restore your hope in the young’uns (I need that as a public high school teacher : )).
There are many more worthy candidates of interest, if I left anyone out it is an omission of ignorance I assure you (and feel free to shout out your faves in the comments). Peace and grace and get out and enjoy the beautiful (or bad) weather in your neck o’ woods this Saturday.
