If it's not obvious by now, I mainly blog because when I have ideas in my head, it's best for them to find expression. That could be a sermon or it could be a written exposition, it's rarely conversation (that's not my temperament!). So blogging helps me process my thoughts into communication.
I like to keep some kind of tab on who wanders past here. Mainly for curiosity's sake. I'm always intrigued by weird search terms that land people here, or unusual countries.
With the rise and rise of RSS-readers, it's hard to know who's reading these days. People are not likely to comment in passing, as I myself know - there's 156 feeds on my reader and I rarely take the time to follow a link to the site proper and leave my opinion. Only things that get me going, one way or the other, get that level of interaction.
Which leaves the blogging experience with a kind of shouting in space feel. I'm aware that there are more readers than I can place a finger on, and there must be regular readers, and some of them I even know, in one way or another. But it's the most amorphous kind of audience to write for.
All of which essentially to say, I hope you enjoy, or benefit from, the words that pass along here. And if you'd just like to say hi, this is the post for that. Carry on, then.
