In an effort to make blogging an easy alternative I’ve given the WordPress app a prominent place on my phone dock. Looking forward to a new year of sharing!

Here’s some thoughts I had while chatting on IM tonight. timnolte: I’m getting this sense that there is a big battle raging right now for our youth timnolte: I’m starting to question where this blog thing is taking people timnolte: I’ve actually noticed a few concerning things as I’ve browsed through some of the camp staff xanga sites too timnolte: I’m starting to feel like this battle is taking place on the internet where parents can’t see it timnolte: I started getting this thought about there being a need for a ministry that focuses on youth who spend a lot of time online…. timnolte: I think the lack of physical interaction and a false sense of anonymity is giving Satan an opening for his lies…
Oh brother, so I won’t be getting very far on the blogging tonight. I guess tomorrow I’ll have to close the IM so that I can actually get the blogging in. If I can get my butt out of bed in the morning I might try to blog before work. Valete!
Ok, so I’ve been pretty out of it blog-wise the past week. It’s not so much an issue of not wanting to blog. It’s just an issue of having the right time to do it. I’m thinking I’m going to work in a good chunk of time tomorrow to catch up on everything that’s been going on. I think my problem too is that I really like doing my post right before I go to bed. This is good and bad as my day is done but I usually spend a good chunk of time writing and don’t get to bed as soon as I really need to. I’m going to leave with at least one topic posted… So a match has been found on…
