I've been blogging for almost a year now. The first blog I ever heard about belongs to our good friends Lori and Dustin Walker. Props to the Walkers! Lori and Dustin, along with Susan were 3 of the first 5 people on the field in New Brunswick, New Jersey tilling the ground as they planted The Point Church. Lori keeps their blog up of their cute as can be twin girls here. To see two cutie patootie twins check out their blog.
The explanation is about the list of links over on the side of our blog, and what that is all about. Certainly, it is to expose visitors to the Laughing and Learning blog to some excellent web resources and other blogs they may enjoy following. By no means do I support/affirm all of the positions/opinions one may find on those sites. But rather the list of sites serves primarily as a one stop kind of home base for me. Many of the blogs and resources I have listed, I visit often. By posting them on this blog, I can get to them all very quickly just by coming to our blog. Sometimes I will list someone's blog site by way of encouragement hoping it will spur them on to more blogging. An example of that is found here. A hopeless cause of that is found here.
My list is always changing every 3 or 4 months or so. It is by no means a comprehensive list of all blogs or websites I visit, and it is not a representation of Susan's top blogs. Take Lori and Dustin's (noted above) for instance. Susan visits their blog all the time. Whenever there is a new cute picture of the twins she shows me - however because I'm not regularly checking the growth of the two cuties, I don't have their blog listed. I may change my approach in the future. I have thought about sometime soon, passing this whole blog to Susan and it being more of family and friends blog, while I start a fresh one that is a theological reflection only kind of thing. Thus far, our blog has had a more devotional tone, with theological reflection and family friend stuff sprinkled in from time to time. Some of you may have wondered, most of you probably haven't.
