Comments for other bloggers

My friend Mandy has a great conversation going on her blog. There has been some discussion about how single people should not worry about getting married and that you have to be comfortable in your own skin. I made some comments and I might have been harsh in my first comment and for that I ask for forgiveness from my fellow bloggers. What I said has some truth in it, as single women we hear married women say the same thing. I am so tired of hearing the same advice. Can someone tell me how not to care about the future and finding Mr. Right? Until I hear some advice that is useful and can be done in a pratical way then I will listen. But to say live your life to the fullest is not pratical advice, how do you know we aren't? Is it wrong to hope and desire for the future?

How can we live life to the fullest when married people feel sorry for us because we aren't married yet. All I am saying is that if you are going to give us advice then give us pratical advice that has relevance to our lives. Just maybe remember back to what it felt like to go to party filled with couples and your the only single one there. Now thats courage! I know that God has someone special for everyone if he puts that desire in your heart and sometimes God waits a long time to send that special person to you but instead of looking at married and singles as enemies maybe we can offer constructive practical advice and not pity.

For Mandy don't let what anom#1 get you down. You are the opposite of helpless, you have more courage than anyone I know.

Participatory Journalism

I was reading this one blog and there was this quote that really shows the power that blogs have over the editorial world. More reason why Write Click should have a blog. We may not influence the media to investigate a murder but we might influence someone to ask Jesus into their heart and isn't that what our jobs are all about. This may be a very simplified way of looking at things but I think its the bottom line. What do you think?


Florence and I went to a blogging seminar last Wednesday because we have developed a Authors Group called Write Click and we are creating a blog for it. This is very exciting here at Truthmedia because we have been wanting a reason to jump on the blogging band wagon and now we have it.

Well I learned a lot from the blogging seminar. I learned that short and constant entries are best and that linking to other people increases their standing. (Thats why Orangejack always links to the stories instead of just telling people)

You can tell I learned a lot because I have linked to different people. I still have some questions, so I am sending it out to the blogging community, What is the difference between Bloglines and Technorati? Are they a completely different thing?

Stay tuned because we are currently working on The Write Click blog and I definately will be talking about it.
