Alright, so the library books are going back. I’m really not good at this juggling books business, and as fascinating as Green Metropolis can be, it just makes it harder to get through Paul. As for <Democracy Matters, right now, I really couldn’t care less about it.
I’m at chapter 3 of Paul in Fresh Perspective and it’s making my head hurt. Just sayin’.
Kinda noticing something here: WordPress has this lovely little feature on my dashboard page called “stats” which shows me how many hits my blog gets per day. I like to call it my self-esteem meter. With my posts being a tad more erratic, my averages are trending a little lower than I’d like with the occasional spike way up into the 40s (for someone like me, that’s not bad). Then I notice my top posts. About 6-7 months ago, I think, I put up a post about Banksy, the graffiti artist, and that post alone can generate over 150 hits in a week for me. On the bright side, that’s a lot of hits; on the down side, no one seems to give a rip about everything else I write.
Honestly, and this might be because I’m writing this at a late hour, hoping to get a head start, I sometimes wonder if I give a rip about this. I still love theology, don’t get me wrong, but basically, right now, I’m parrotting back information I’m reading back to you, the reader.
What do you care about what I’m reading and you aren’t? Or, if you prefer I don’t whine so much, what good does it do me to parrot back information to you without discussing its implications in a succinct manner if you too are not reading that book?
Blogs aren’t meant for solely the regurgitation of information, in my opinion, and that’s what this has all been. From now on, I am only going to utilize enough of the information to explain my thoughts on a book and, hopefully, still create discussion.
See all of you with a more specific post on Wright on Monday.
