Ok...this is hard for me to say...but, I was wrong.
I have been very critical of blogs and their authors for a variety of reasons, all of them I feel strongly about by the way.
But, I was wrong!
After spending the last few weeks randomly visiting the blog world it has occured to me that I have misunderstood the entire thing...well not all of it, but for certain I have misunderstood some of it.
You see, you are reading the blog of the biggest blog critic. I have even named my blog after my favorite descriptive word about bloggers. Narcissistic!
But, alas, I was wrong!
You see, I have been like the farmer standing beside his mule complaining about the "noisy contraption" his neighboring farmer was riding around on. At the same time lamenting the slow pace of his old mule. I have discovered that the world of blogs is a great place to have a voice. So, here I am in a "tractor" store purchasing a new John Deere Blog. Yep, I'm ready to make hay...so to speak.
It seems that with every voice in our world that there is no way of balancing things out. I read a catchy headline online tonight and it sealed my fate. If someone named Katy Perry can write a pop song about kissing a girl and liking it, and said song can be given the "favorite song of the summer" title. Well, its time for the world to hear my voice.
So, here is where I will speak my heart and mind.
I have a reason for this breakdown of my pride and the eating of my words. It is called "reason". There must be another voice of reason speaking out. I know, I know...there are many voices of reason out there. But we need more. The young people of my church and those connected need to hear another voice of reason.
Thats my story and I'm sticking to it!
By the way, crow is not a bad meal to eat if you season it with the right motives.
