20 Blogs

Mouse was kind enough to include Kouya Chronicle in his list of blogs to watch. This inspired me to draw up my list of the twenty recommended blogs. This doesn’t mean that these are the best blogs out there, but they are the ones that I follow the most closely. For obvious reasons, Bible translation and mission blogs predominate in my list. The list is ordered alphabetically.

  1. Antony Billington’s blog
  2. Beaker folk of Husbourne Crawley
  3. Ben Byerly
  4. Bible and Mission
  5. Church Mouse Blog
  6. Clayboy
  7. Every Tongue
  8. God Didn’t Say That
  9. Godspace
  10. Jamie the VWM
  11. Journeyman
  12. John 20:21
  13. Mali Musings
  14. Missionary Confidential
  15. Real Meal Ministries
  16. Reclaiming the Mission
  17. Tim Chester
  18. Vinoth Ramachandra
  19. White African
  20. Wycliffe UK Blog

The biggest surprise in this list is the absence of Onesimus Online, my blog of the year for 2010. Unfortunately, within days of me giving this prestigious award, Onesimus decided to stop blogging.

This post is more than a year old. It is quite possible that any links to other websites, pictures or media content will no longer be valid. Things change on the web and it is impossible for us to keep up to date with everything.

I really appreciate your support and encouragement. However, the year is ending with my mother on her deathbed, with my daughter’s boyfriend traveling from the States to Kenya to ask my permission to marry her, with me converting to Orthodoxy at a special service in two weeks, etc, etc – I felt I needed to simply live for a while without also the self-imposed pressure to write about it. I especially didn’t want to spend an inordinate amount of time dealing with the understandable questions my conversion will likely generate, at least for a while. The murk will clear eventually and I may reemerge in a new avatar.

Hi Bill, thanks for writing this. Firstly, my sincere sympathies for you and your family at this time of your mother’s suffering. At the same time, congratulations for you daughter. It must be a confusing time for you and I wish you the Lord’s strength as you deal with the mixture of emotions.

I do hope that you return to blogging at some point (and that you let us know), because your voice is one that many of us need to hear. I fully understand the need for a break and for the self imposed strains that blogging causes to emerge. I’m certainly not complaining that you are stopping, in your place I would do the same.

In the meantime, thanks for letting me come along for the ride this year, I’ve appreciated it. We’ve got many friends in common at NEGST and I may catch news of you from time to time.

Thanks for including me despite my recent silence.
A blog post of a fellow student recently gave me a lot to think, and I have been less rigorous to keep the blog ‘alive’ even when there is not enough time to write quality content.
He said in his reflection “I am realizing more and more that the kinds of practices constitutive of good online citizenship are not the kinds of practices that are constitutive of good earthy citizenship.”
I am excited to discover Godspace through your post and hope to read more from her. But will there be enough time for all the good stuff that is out there? The Lord knows. 🙂
