I've blogged on and off for several years now.
My first blog, Religion and Politics, just got rolled into my last blog, Timeless Faith.
I had a short stint with Blogster. I left there because there was very little control over blogs and moderation. I couldn't even shut my own blog down.
I also mirrored Timeless Faith on Xanga. Xanga has been buggy, but I liked them for a time because of their photo and video features.
I'm leaving both Timeless Faith and the Xanga mirror up and I'm going back to just using Google's blogger with a brand new site. This one will focus more on the discussions I have on other sites that I think are worthy of sharing. I may still generate some stand-alone material from time-to-time, but I don't have the time to do so on a regular basis. I figure as long as I'm writing helpful comments on other people's sites, I might as well compile them on my own site.
I hope this is a benefit to others.
