So, as I have migrated all of my blogs from my beloved Bloglines to Google Reader (so far, a relatively easy transition), I have glanced through some blogs of some friends, some well-known bloggers, some people I choose to stalk, and some people I don’t really know how they got on my list…and I noticed something. Well, a few things. I decided not to transfer over many blogs that I either: a. noticed they hardly ever blog or b. noticed that I am hardly ever interested in what they have to blog about. However, there were two that I transferred over in desperate hopes that one day their blogs will be resurrected.
Seriously. Jen Shinn and Jamie Friesen. Get on it. I’m begging you.
Jamie, my so-called, self-proclaimed ‘Joy Giver’ – let me tell you the amount of joy that blog of yours brought to this life of mine. And the sadness that overcame me when I saw you haven’t blogged in nearly two years. Really?! How did that endeavor become so easily swept under the rug. Go back and read your posts. Humor me. You know you want to recount those memories and where’s a more perfect place to do so than on a public forum that yours truly has access to?!
And JP. Come on! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED reading about your life happenings through the lens of your blog. It was a great way to feel connected, to feel like a fly on the wall in that life of yours. We expressed it at R&R, but I would like to reiterate that us little youngins really look up to you wiser, more mature crew! It was great to feel like we got to experience a piece of your life!
I know the inclination to leave comments on posts has died down (particularly with the easy access of viewing sites through bloglines – catching up on blogs is the perfect lunch break activity, which leaves hardly any time for comments) which might cause motivation to dwindle. But, that does not mean that my desire to read them has! So, I’d like to rally the FCA crew to come and encourage our lovely ladies to resurrect their blogs that were oh so humorous and oh so impactful!
I believe as Believers, we are supposed to call people out in certain situations and with a certain spirit. So, out of the Spirit of love and all things good, I would like to personally request one on behalf of all bloggers near and far. I would also like to direct you to James 4:17. Do this good! 🙂
