Why B-l—o-g?

Six months ago a friend said “Seth, you want to start a blog?” I vividly remember spelling the word out in my mind, b-l—o-g? Sure I had heard the word before, but only in passing on TV or talk radio. I’ll be honest, the blogging world was not on my A list of daily activities. But I had no idea what blogging really was, let alone how to go about it. Despite my false misconceptions, here I sit, beginning ‘Not On HIS Time.’ After some quick google and wikipedia searches, the act and purpose of blogging grows ever clearer. It has taken me about a month to create my blog as you see it now. Expert bloggers could probably do it in a couple hours. Despite my rookie status, I am excited to begin sharing insights into my life, thinking, and dreams through this new platform of communication.

Because when all technology is used cautiously, its result usually is healthy for all. But travel down the path of addiction to, resulting in the neglect of the really important blessings of this life, ‘then it is better to tie a mill stone around the hard drive and dropped in the sea.’ Therefore, let us continue to learn and grow through technology, but not to the expense of the everyday hello on the street.
