BlogBiz: I got a Twitter.

27 Sep

It is insanely hot in Los Angeles – triple-digit heat – and it’s sapping my will to blog today.  This is the Gaian payback for an unusually mild summer, methinks.

In the meantime, in case you haven’t noticed, I jumped on the social networking bandwagon and got a Twitter account for the blog.  Sometimes I come across articles or other media that are of interest to the readers of this blog, but I don’t have the time or inclination to dissect them, or I don’t feel that a quick blurb is worth a blog post.  Twitter seemed to be the perfect solution for passing on these items.  So check out the feed on the right-side column, follow me if you wish, and if something sparks enough interest, I can always blog about it later.

Speaking of which, if you have a topic that you think would make a good blog post, write me or leave a comment here.  I can’t promise to write about the topic in the future, but it’s always good to have a pot of ideas percolating.

Thanks to everyone who has visited the blog.  You make my day, at least most of the time. ;D

    Fear of commitment/intimacy… just so happens to be a personal issue.

    It is insanely hot in Los Angeles – triple-digit heat – and it’s sapping my will to blog today.

    The one week out of the year that we actually used our a/c was always in September.

    I suggested a while back that you blog on churchy women’s views towards prenuptial agreements.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Hmm, good topic. Thanks for suggesting.

    It seems like there’s always a fall heat wave. Boo hiss.

    How young women respond to young men taking leadership roles in the church, e.g. heading up a Bible study, or a missions trip, etc. DHV, or not necessarily?

    Just a thought, for a possible topic.

    You have alluded to the brute demographic reality that most churches have a female to male ratio of about 3 to 2, meaning that one out of three women cannot, mathematically, find a husband in the church, and you have criticized the inadequacy of most church leader’s “solutions” to this situation, but you never present much in the way of affirmative ideas. Do you have any?

    Can you do a post on Evangelical women’s thoughts on dating/marrying Catholics?

    You know, Haley, I’ve probably read every one of your posts, and I think you should take what you’ve written and turn it into a book. Something that would be placed next to all the “I kissed this, that, and other things goodbye” brands. Your writing style has the perfect mix of quirkiness, wit, succinctness, and directness, which makes for an entertaining but informative, thought provoking read. At least your stuff is much needed antidote to all the drivel propagated in today’s evangelical churches and media.

    Anyway, judging from your writing on this blog, I would say your professional life is in the writing business. If not, it should be, and you should use those connections to get a book started.

    It’s harder than you think. And she’ll have trouble getting past the gatekeepers.

    She’d do better to start an email newsletter. The unique comments count isn’t high enough to support a book yet. But I agree about the talent and fit.

    Thanks, Lover of Wisdom. I never had any book aspirations with the blog, but who knows what the future holds? Not sure I’m “sisterly” enough for the Christian relationship book crowd, though. (That most of my commenters here are men seems to substantiate that theory….)

    If I were in your shoes, those wouldn’t be concerns for me. You clearly have a talent here, and unless you have a plethora of other talents, you should be exercising your talent by expanding it to the next logical step.

    Remember in the old Doonesbury cartoons (ca. 1970), there was a character Scott Sloane, aka “the fighting young priest who can talk to the young”? Haley could be “the outspoken young Christian woman who can communicate with young men.” Christianity Today would probably eat it up.

    +1 to this. You should really consider retargeting to men. Women are always gonna go after twaddle and pap, relatively speaking. Grab the church guys and the girls will follow.

    Plus as a female you get a pass for introducing Game which a male author wouldn’t.

    Haley could be “the outspoken young Christian woman who can communicate with young men.”

    This would be a true irony.
