Why I Joined High Calling Blogs

HighCallingBlogs.com Christian Blog Network
I still consider myself new to blogging.  But after you blog for a couple of months, you notice that there is no shortage of blogging “groups” out there.  In fact, there’s a group for everyone and everything.

At first, I ignored the blogging groups.  I frankly don’t have much time to blog every day, so I figured I’d just keep doing my thing (writing) and not worry about other bloggers.  In fact, I even thought blogging groups were rather weird.  Don’t these people have real friends?  And how do they have time for real lives when they are always hanging out online?

Then I stumbled upon a site called High Calling Blogs.

I didn’t jump in with both feet.  Just the opposite.  I was pretty cautious.  I read the blog for a couple of months.  I looked up the writers and editors.  I noticed who frequently posted comments.  I read and re-read the guidelines and mission statement.  And then I decided to join.

What drew me to High Calling Blogs?

Definitely the people.  People like Michelle DeRusha, Laura Boggess, and Diedra Riggs.  People who reached out to me to join the conversation, even when I wasn’t a “member.”  People who inspire and encourage in my own writing journey.

So, what has kept me at High Calling Blogs?

Definitely the people and the writing.  I’ve continued to connect with some incredible people.  But given the amount of time I already spend reading, I’m not going to take time to read a blog on a regular basis unless the writing grabs me!  After several months of reading, I was sold on the both the diversity and depth of content, as well as the quality of the writing. (For example, check out the thought-provoking posts Your Money Or Your (Spiritual) Life by Bradley M. Moore or Fractured Family by Gordon Atkinson)

If you haven’t visited High Calling Blogs, check it out for yourself.  Even if you’re not looking for another “group” to join or blog to read, you might just get hooked!

Have a great weekend!

It's wonderful to have your voice in the High Calling Blogs network. The HCB network offers a sense of "place" out on this big ol' Information Superhighway -- like a rest stop at the roadside.

It's a joy to journey with you.
