Semi-kiboshed blogging-mojo!

Hey, I know this place. I remember now! This is my blog!

Seriously, I haven't given up blogging, at least not yet. The truth is, though, I seem to have run out of things to say.

When I started blogging, I had the ministry paradigm. My blog would be a place of "encouragement," which after all is a spiritual gift, right? I did that for a while, but soon my native grumpiness began to manifest itself, and I was the grumpiest encourager out there.

Always trying to tame the grumpy old man inside me, I toned that down eventually and found myself with a lot less to say.

In life this has always been a good strategy for me personally: talk less, listen more.

But it puts the kibosh on your blogging-mojo!

So here I am with a long-established blog, but little sense of mission or purpose. Still, it's a kind of home to me, so I'm not going away. That talk less, listen more thing only goes so far. Sooner or later I start chattering.
