ONE ON ONE
Hello bloggers and blogerati!
Welcome! You’re in the right place, and I’m glad that you’re here! Those of you who just entered through the CITN site, and are in the habit of clicking on the One On One link to read my daily web column might be surprised to find yourself in this part of cyberspace, but from now on that link will usher you directly here to my personal blog site.
If this is your first time visiting me here, you will have (or should have) noticed music playing on your computer. That’s my playlist of 100 songs which consists of worship, inspirational, gospel, and positive secular selections of every genre (my tastes are obviously quite eclectic). The songs shuffle, so you will hear a different one every time you log on. If you prefer to read without the music, you can either turn your computer volume down, or scroll down to the player and pause it. The songs can play continuously for hours before repeating, and many people just leave the site on to enjoy the music throughout their whole day.
You will notice that some people post comments here using their name, others post under “anonymous”, and still others choose to use a blog pseudonym, a practice that is quite common and accepted in the world of blogging. It’s all a matter of personal preference, and I’m fine with however anyone chooses to participate. If you’ve never used this format, don’t be intimidated by it…it’s really easy, and once you become familar with it, you’ll find that it’s very cool.
You can still blog on the CITN site about the services, the monthly E.A.C.H. award winners, and special events...and A Year In The Now, and the Scripture of the Day will sill be posted there daily.
If you take the time to read through the daily comments here, you will see that there are quite a few “regulars”, and that they have definitely formed a community (which I love). The group is made up of CITN members and friends, members of cyber-CITN from around the world, and others who just found us through surfing the internet and bonded with us here. But it’s not a clique or a closed society, so please feel free to let your light shine here with the rest of us! I am the blog moderator, and I do reserve the right to screen out things that I think are inappropriate for whatever reason, and I make no apology for that. But I am willing to answer honest questions when I can, and even to allow the expression of opposing viewpoints on occasion, if I believe that the comments serve a purpose, or give me an opportunity to address something that I think is important.
Don’t be disappointed that the season for One On One as you have known it has ended. I think that if you take a look around here, you will see that this blog really is a place for me to interact “one on one” with you more effectively and initimately than before.
You are important to me and to CITN…more importantly, you are important to God! Your insights may be a blessing to someone here, so let’s hear what you have to say. Don’t be shy or withdrawn or aloof…there is a term for those who read blogs and never contribute to them…they’re called “blurkers”. So my word to you today, one on one, is simply this: DON’T BE A BLURKER…BE A BLESSING!
