I have been blogging for more than 5 years now and I have to say, there are so few of us out there (or online). In general, pinoy blogging is spreading widely. A lot of “niche” blogs have sprouted and I have to say that tech blogs, personal whinings and causes have played an important role in my blogging life. 🙂
So,what am I whining about?
When I used the word “few”, I was actually referring to christian bloggers – believers who blog (BwB). I tried checking Top Blogs and noticed that out of the 150 plus bloggers registered under Religious categories, only a few really comes close to my heart as fellow believers.
Seriously, as believers, do we really need to blog?
Yes, we need to. If God has called us to be light of the world, I think it included the world wide web. The bigger and faster way to share God’s love.
How do we define “christian bloggers” and differentiate them to others?
I have to admit that generalizing it will be easier but I personally believe that Believers who Blog are those who’ve committed their lives to Christ and has made their blog an avenue for comfort, learning and encouragement to others.
Although there are a lot of christian bloggers who focuses on christian leadership, testimonies and encouragements and a majority to christian music and literature, still our voices are not heard widely. There’s a need to band together and raise the banner in the online community.
How do we band together?
And since I have this inkling feeling that there are more (Filipino) believers who blog aside from what I’m accustomed to, I think it’s high time to start (or restart) my long lost project, Operation: BwB (short for Believers who Blog!).
This project will try to give a list of blogs that have made their way to the pinoyblogosphere and beyond, focus on the content of their blog and surely, connect with them for online fellowship and the like. I know, this may take some time and effort – and I’m wondering if someone out there would be willing to partner with me on this. 😦
And if you’re interested, I need YOU!
