My Two Cents…
April 24, 2011
So I have not thrown my hat in the blogging ring for going on four years now. I found it difficult to continue with my Jobless Minister blog when I was once again – well, employed. I felt like it compromised my street cred, so I walked away from blogging for highly noble reasons. (on a side note someone else took the web address of my former blog - there is one entry from last May about British politics). I would have gotten a web address that was my name but apparently another Mike Dixon is having as many problems as I once did meeting girls and got to the domain first. www.mikedixon.com (don’t worry its not dirty)
Why blog again? At the end of this Lenten season I have felt the compulsion to pick up the discipline of a blog once again. (As it turns out when I do not watch TV then I feel compelled to do a lot of things that might actually be good for me. ) Truth is that I need a place like this to keep me honest it my attempts to consistently engage in what the parts of my life I might otherwise leave unexamined. Socrates would be very disappointed..
In this space I will just take the time to reflect on whatever it is that I am reading, experiencing, and thinking about in life, in faith, in culture, and in my head. I know that there are no lack of blogs out there. I am painfully aware that I am no more qualified than anyone else to run off at the mouth publicly. But what follows will be my two cents.
