Shameless self-promotion

Sometimes, what you do with a blog is all about trying to get other people to read your blog, because when the visitor stats drop, you start to feel alone. And, knowing that you are being read is a good reminder to write. Add to that the hope that you will be read, and possibly get interacted with, for good or for ill, and so you write better.

So, today I'm writing a post to help me get listed on a bloglisting site so that more people will read my blog, because more people will go to the site, then link on through to my blog. This will generate revenue for the weblisting, and readers for me! I like readers...

The person running the website is Tony Kummer. He's also the brains behind some other blog sites, all of which are linked at his new website, www.mychristianblogs.com. So, naturally, I want to be listed on his site. To get there, I have to write a post about that site.

Now, keep in mind, not everything you'll find at www.mychristianblogs.com is going to be deep South Conservative Southern Baptist in its nature. That's part of the reason to be involved in this case. If you'll read through the veritable cornucopeia of blogs listed, you'll see sides of issues that you never knew existed, and fascinating rebukes and retorts will abound.

So, as a blog aggregator, this looks like a great place to find some very good Christian blogs out there. Once you find some you like, you can also check their blogrolls, but keep in mind, many of us are very hesitant to add someone to our blogroll. First we've got to know you want to be linked, then we want to make sure we're not linking to somebody who wrote 2 good posts and then went wack-o! So, a blog aggregator is a good bookmark site, to see what new things are out there.

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
