I’ve learned to use the Bookmarks toolbar and Tabbed Browsing in Firefox and combined them into a timesaving browsing tool. I have quite a few blogs that I go through every day. I just put the bookmarks into a folder and I can load all of them in tabs just by middle clicking the folder. Very neat. Then I just go along my merry way, scanning what’s new and closing the tabs, at which point I load the next batch. My toolbar is set up so that I read all of my friends’ blogs first, then design blogs, tech, gaming, and so on.
I remember a few years ago when I first got my Livejournal. There weren’t that many people that I knew who blogged and the stuff I wrote was, well, crap. But hey, life wasn’t that interesting back in Grade 9. Now, everyone has their own blog and writes long, epic, two page entries about stuff. More specifically, it seems like for the past while, every other blog was talking about some problem that was going on with our fellowships.
It was only a year or two ago that things were looking really good. Being on PC showed me that by no means was Hosanna perfect, but it was quite optimistic. Once blogging started catching on, say a year ago, I’ve been exposed to even more criticisms and worries that people have about our church. Heck, I’ve written about some worries I had about Hosanna last year.
So Aletheia. It’s been alright for me, if a little unorganized and impromptu here and there. It’s not perfect. It can’t be. I’m really worried though because some of this is starting to drive people away. I’m starting to worry about what that might mean for me. I mean, last night, some stuff that happened was unexpected. It was funny, yeah, but I didn’t expect a lack of insightful discussion. Oh, and the picture; definitely unexpected
But yes, worries. Let’s assume that Aletheia is really not working and people start to leave. I’ve read some musings about whether or not the writer should start looking into moving to another church. That scares me because if it comes down to that what will I do? Yeah, I’ll lose some friends. But what if Aletheia doesn’t do it for me? What then? It’s not like I know people from other churches
I can’t think of a suitable closing. Something’s gotta happen though. Something’s gotta change. And hoor-yay. I think I just added more stress for myself.
