As a new member of Faith Writers, I have waited anxiously to enter the Challenge. Today, at last, they have announced their new subject. It is: Blog. Oh my gosh! Blog! I don’t even have a dictionary in my house that contains that word!
How is an old broad like me to write about a foreign subject like this, as foreign to me as anything foreign that you can imagine? I can say that I have actually read a blog. That is because I met a friend’s friend who is blogging (is that a word?) about having cancer. The only reason that I was able to find such a thing is because she e-mailed me, and her e-mail had a link to her blog, so all I had to do was click. Even I can do that!
I have to admit her blog was interesting. There was a gorgeous nature picture of mountains reflected in water and her statement of her love for her Lord. There were pictures of her and her animals. I guess the neatest thing, though, was that she could say anything she wanted regarding her cancer: her fears, her hopes and her trust in the Lord. Her blog seemed to give her a freedom of expression that was comfortable for her, for good news and for bad.
Maybe that is what blogs are all about, putting yourself “out there.” That could be freeing or terrifying, depending upon your nature or your attitude at the time of writing. One problem though: what is put “out there” can never be retrieved. It can be deleted off the blog, but not out of the minds of those who have read it. Bloger beware!
