I’ve Been Tagged!

Allan Bevere tagged me from a meme created by L.L. Barkat.

Here are the rules should you decide to keep them:

  1. Write about 5 specific ways blogging has affected you, either positively or negatively.
  2. Link back to the person who tagged you
  3. Link back to this parent post (L.L. Barkat is not so much interested in generating links, but rather in tracking the meme so she can perhaps do a summary post later on that looks at patterns and interesting discoveries.)
  4. Tag a few friends or five, or none at all
  5. Post these rules— or just have fun breaking them

So, how blogging has changed me:

  1. The one thing that blogging has done is keep in the practice of writing each week.
  2. I have to agree with Allan that I have been surprised by the vitriol that exists out there.  I had heard about it in connection with other blogs but I am surprised by how many who call themselves Christians do not act like Christians.
  3. I also have to agree with Allan in that it has connected me with many thoughtful and faithful people.  I have been reconnected with classmates from college and found others who are also alumni of Truman State University – Andy, “tag, you’re it!.  (Helen, if you were blogging, I would tag you as well 🙂
  4. I have found others who see the value of science and religion in one’s life and how both are important to a complete life – Henry, “tag, you’re it!”
  5. When I started blogging, I knew nothing about the blogosphere or the extent to which it extends out into the world.  I forget who it was that brought me into the Methoblog so I am going to thank Jay Voorhees – Jay, “tag,you’re it!”.  Also, I can’t remember who invited me to join the RevGalBlogPals list so I am going thank Rev. Abi – Abi, “tag, you’re it!”.  I don’t participate as much as I did or should but they have shown me the need to redefine what is meant by a community.
  6. To meet the requirements for five people, you, the reader, are invited to participate.
