Blogged Out

I think I’m losing interest in blogging. It was fun for a while, but now it just seems, well, pointless. Not much more to say than that.

    You’re not leaving the blogosphere are you? You are one of my favorite bloggers.

    Ditto.

    Whatever you do, don’t delete the blog. Keep your stuff available online, and keep other people from stealing your blogspot web address.

    If you do stop, Pastor, then thank you. But you don’t have to post every day or even every other day. Just blog when you’ve got something to say, and the bloglines and Google readers will pick it up.

    Peace.

    I don’t know, we’ll see.

    Blogging is like doing a radio broadcast, they are out there listening to you but they are not calling to give you comments. But they are there. You can track your visitors by Google Analytics.

    It’s a cyclical thing, Rev. Beisel. I’ve gone through several ups & downs wrt my motivation to blog, over the course of my 2.5yrs of blogging.

    As was previously mentioned/commented, I think it’s imperative that you leave the blog up & available, even if you take a short hiatus. What you’ve written so far is valuable to your readers (and you do have more than you might think). A slash-and-burn removal of everything would not be good, useful, or right.

    Take time to recharge. Don’t worry about being too terribly “relevant” or significant in what you write. Write when & what you feel, and don’t feel guilty about any of it. Your voice, however, is important, and I for one enjoy hearing it!

    Ditto on the value of your voice.
    I for one appreciate your personal candor and your insights such as ‘Shepherds=Kings’.
    I read several Lutheran blogs, but not that many pastors’ blogs. Yours is unique: you just seem so honest about being a Lutheran pastor.
    I’d really hate to have another good Lutheran blog disappear.

    Nooooo… no no… no.

    Take a break. But come back. Try out some different topics from time to time.

    Give us a post at least once a month, just so we know your still alive and kickin’.

  8. Pastor Beisel says:

    Well, thanks for your votes of confidence. I’ll keep it up and running, and maybe will post a sermon if I think it worthy of public reading. Otherwise, don’t expect too much right now. I’ve got a lot on my plate right now. I am devoid of any profundity right now.

  9. Lawrence says:

    It’s our loss if you stop blogging, but we also know you’re a busy guy. First priorities just gotta be first.

    Pastor – yours is one my favorite blogs. I’d miss you!
