I monitor a lot of blog sites. Thanks to "Google Reader" you can scan new topics and see what’s buzzing about the Blogophere. On the Lutheran blogosphere I will, routinely, bump into a blog post about blogging. Actually, it’s usually a kind of self-indulgent sort of twaddle that truly strikes me as the most boring of all blog posts: the blogging about blogging post. I just read another one recently.
Advice to Lutheran bloggers: blog about what you know best. Don’t bore us with blog posts about why you blog, or how you blog, or when you blog, or how you don’t really care about what others say about your blog but then proceed to explain in several paragraphs of passive-aggression how you are, boo-hoo, misunderstood and under appreciated, or try to convince us of how "you are controversial" and "oh, this is going to make somebody upset."
A friend recently said it best. People are not reading our Lutheran pastors’ blogs to get our opinions about much other than Lutheranism. So…let’s keep that in mind fellow Lutheran bloggers.
Now, tell me, is there anything as boring as reading a post about
posting? I think not. Case in point? Read this
post again. See what I mean? Yawn!
