I have not really seen blogging as a tool. I blog because I want to, and quite honestly, I don’t have any reason at all for doing.
Oh well, theoretically, and according to online readings, blogging has real benefits. But not only recently that I see the beauty that is blogging when I saw it first hand. For instance, a balikbayan wanted to attend a church. He saw my blog and called me up. He attended Grace Place. That was a year and a half ago. A couple of weeks ago, he called up asking if Grace Place can officiate his wedding, which will be soon. Last night, we met his fiancee at our small group meeting and hopefully, she can attend the Sunday services. All these because of this blog.
Through this blog, I met several Christian bloggers, allowed me to expose my techie self (and now, through PinoyTechBlog) and met several potential clients.
And lately, I’m learning the pastor’s way of blogging. Perry Noble, whom I consider my online church leadership teacher, has been blogging about his church. And he’s doing a great job in communicating his vision to the church. His people are responding positively.
So, blogging it is. I may not be blogging too much — which is good in a sense because I am starting to have more time with people and not just being online all the time — but I’ll try to do more and more, that is, if you’ll visit frequently. :-)
Do me a favor, can you add a comment in this post if you are my regular visitor?
