Read Better Blogs--Become a Better Blogger

This past Monday night we enjoyed a blogging seminar with one of the great Christian bloggers, Michael Spencer.  His blog, Internet Monk:  Dispatches from the post evangelical wilderness, is a must for your reader.  

One of my learnings from the night:  if you want to be a better blogger, read better blogs.  He encouraged us to study and learn from the good bloggers, both from their writing and their sense of blog artistry.  In response to his Monday night session with our Asbury Blogger's Society, he authored this post on the top ten bloggers we could study and learn from.  I have begun a "best bloggers" category in my Google Reader which has already become both an encouraging and challenging practice.  He also gave a nice link to our upstart Asbury Blogger's Society.  As a result we also got a nice link from Spencer's #1 Christian blogger, Australian, Andrew Jones at Tall Skinny Kiwi. All in all, it's been a fun day and a good break for our small society of bloggers.  Kudos to Chad Brooks and Isaac Hopper, two of our interns who have worked hard this year to move this project forward.

I remember talking to Tony Jones this past week and he was talking to another prolific blogger, and the blogger gave him these words of advice, "Tony, why do you keep blogging about yourself, or about your book, the people that come to your blog have already read your book, you need to get your readership higher... so start blogging about controversial stuff"...

look it worked for Farmsstrong too, heh.
