I was reading a blog on blogging and it was flagging the fact that many bloggers get trapped in activities that might help them, but typically serve as mostly distraction. For instance, they might habitually check stats or obsess on the design of their blog. Those aren’t bad activities, but the heart beat of blogging is actually creating valuable content. I find that I sometimes do the same thing with my faith. For example, I recall in seminary one time going to the bookstore and browsing what I refer to as the “Christian self-help section.” (what an oxymoron) Anyways, I am browsing books on prayer when I realize that I had shelves of these. I didn’t need another book telling what I needed to do. I just need to pray.
