One Year of Blogging

Today marks the first anniversary of this blog. This calls for revisiting what has been an interesting experience.

At the time I wasn’t sure exactly how it would turn out, as I guess is the case for most bloggers. The General Conference Session in St. Louis got me started writing, and this being my 51st post it comes to an average of nearly one per week.

No two blogs are the same. My style is probably not as personal as some; I don’t write about every little that happens in my life. It’s more like having my own column (since no magazines have offered me a real one). Focusing on, but not confined to, issues related to faith and the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

It’s not fun unless there’s someone to read it. And I have been positively surprised by the width of readership and the good comments posted by people from different parts of the world. Interacting with the blogosphere and getting to know people from many obscure places has been great. So to anyone out there reading: thanks so much for dropping by—your feedback is much appreciated.

Blogging is all the rage—you as a blog reader will, of course, agree. No one knows if the phenomenon in its current form will even survive this decade. But even then, something else will replace it. This is the early stage of a new way of communicating and interacting in a globalized world, and it’s fascinating to be a part of.

May we live in interesting times.

  1. Hey! Stop cursing me! =) Of course, Chinese curses aside, I’ll take interesting times over boring ones any day of the week.

  2. Yeah it’s kinda weird to me that it’s originally a curse. Maybe the translation changes it. Or maybe it’s just a strange, postmodern notion–but I definitely see interesting as something good.

  3. Hi, Ken!

    I like your blog! It’s got all kinds of fancy doo-dads and stuff — makes mine look kinda bland.

    Since I activated Word Verification, I don’t get any comments at all. Not even spam! I guess the Internet is for the young… us old fogeys need to stick with T.V. and our eight-track players!–>
