3 x 3: a quick meme for Thursday

JohnieB tagged me for this meme. The rules are easy:

1) List three reasons for your blogging.
2) List the rules.
3) Tag three others with the thread.

a) I blog because I’m a horrid correspondent. It’s true. I started this when I was about to make a major move out of my adopted hometown (of 17 years, counting college) to seminary in California. I wanted to give my friends a way to keep track of me.

b) I kept it up because I found community, both in the RevGalBlogPals and the OCICBW crew of reprobates. I’ve never met most of these people, but I e-mail with some of them, housesat for one, and count them as friends. We keep up with each other; we encourage each other, we pray with each other. If one is hurting, others are there. Good circles to be in.

c) I like writing; I like thinking out loud, and I’m more faithful about this than I ever was with a private journal. I can use this voice for justice, and I have. I’m also aware that someone coming across this blog might be encouraged in their own path, spiritual or other. Besides, the memes and silly things are fun.

Thanks!

I agree, I use my Blog for Scrapbook journaling, because I wrote it down when it was fresh.

And, the community is awesome.

I'm glad you blog, so I can follow what you are up to!
