Best Blogs of 2007

1. www.ysmarko.com - Marko is the president of youth specialties and I love Marko's blog. It's a good blend of theological thought, youth ministry, family life, leadership, and humor. And I like that we get at least a couple posts per day.

2. orangecountypastor.blogspot.com - Matt Doan has been the High School Pastor at my church for the past seven years and will now be moving into a role pastoring Young Adults and leading Community Outreach for our church as well as our Assimiliation efforts. His blog is funny, self-deprecating, and has some good insights. He posts often enough to get recognized but should post a bit more.

Those are the only two I can give my stamp of approval to. The main problem with others is that they don't post enough. So to all my friends (Bea, Victor, Melissa, Kevin, Jasen, Randy, Laura, Trevor, Tammy, Jolinda, J-Lo, Tim) - start posting more and you can gain the tremendous acclaim of my blog (10 more people on earth will know who you are). I also love Erin, Kim and Karen's blog but I just can't put the "90% posts on my kids" blogs on my favorite list. Sorry. Also, if you start using names instead of weird letters I might bump you up. It's just too hard to read.

My new favorite blog in 2008 is www.leadingsmart.com by Tim Stevens - Executive Pastor of Granger Church.

I'm starting to get used to being left out of lists now. Yesterday, P. Diddy forgets I'm part of the new Leadership Team and now apparently you either forgot I have a blog or I'm not your friend. And to think, we're going to be neighbors now. There goes the neighborhood.

I have the same sentiments as the above two commentors. Why did I not even merit a mention on your list, Eric?? What are you trying to say to me??

I don't know what you guys are talking about. Your names are in there.

ha ha.. Eric your getting yourself into trouble. I saw the post before you changed it and it was funny to see names added later.. i think i'm not helping :) Thanks for the mention even if my posts are 90% about my kids. Hopefully you don't have to change this post again :)

Forget about being added to this post ... I'd like to be taken off that list. Thank you very much!

In the words of Luke Matlock...You're such a Wakeling
