Virtual relationships…

Lon in optimus prime helmetI’ve been doing some thinking recently… (I do my best thinking with my Optimus Prime helmet on, video here).

There are so many more people around the world who read my blog than people I connect with regularly in person.

I’m guessing part of this is because if you’re in my regular circles, well, we can catch up just about anytime we want in person. Another part might be due to the anonymity of the internet and how you can peek into someone’s life without them ever knowing about it. And then there’s those of you who’ve contributed to the thousand plus comments here.

Either way, I’m thankful for those of you who might actually think I have something of value to say or share. I’m amazed by the number of you who subscribe to the SolarCrash feed because as much as I’ve tried to narrow the scope of the blogging, you really never know what you’re going to get. So thanks for sticking around.

I’ve also especially appreciate the interaction. The networking has been fantastic, and your comments have been both encouraging and insightful.

I’ll be removing the plugoo instant chat widget I have on the sidebar (just so it doesn’t become a let down when I’m not around), but it’s awesome how with technology today I’ve been able to interact with so many church planters, leaders, and strangers around the world. Just yesterday I chatted with a teen who had been a cutter and was wondering what god had to do with life at all.

You can continue connecting with me further via comments, the contact page, or even via facebook if you’re into that sort of thing.

So again, thank you for reading, thank you for sticking around, thank you for commenting, thank you for clicking the ads, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day, and although the relationships might primarily be virtual, thank you for the friendships. I’m looking forward to the journey ahead together.

My name is Lon, and I thank God for blogs.
