Solar Crash: 2007 round-up

This past year was interesting year in blogging for me.

After blogging on and off for several years, I really picked things up in 2007.  voxtropolis was a great launching pad for me, and moving over to solarcrash.com midway last year was a learning experience as well.

After 222 posts in 2007, some reasons I continue to blog

My brain’s a mess, writing helps bring some clarity to the madness going on upstairs

Having a searchable archive of my thoughts has been invaluable in preaching/teaching and conversation

Voice – I always hope to give voice to those who might share my heart

Networking – It’s been such a blessing being able to connect with so many incredible individuals through this blog

Here are some noteworthy posts of 2007

Silence in the church
The challenge of preaching today
Canada vs. the U.S.
Leaders need community
Leaders take responsibility
High school all over again
Risky Leadership
Creation Re-Imagined
My moonwalking baby
Less is more
Reflections on Speaking
Lifecycle Principles
I declare no-church sunday
Tantric preaching

    Hey Lon — got a quick question for you. What do you use to create the “Similar Posts” function on your site?? I think that’s great!

    Hey Josh, it’s a plugin called “if you liked that…” available here

    Thanks Lon! Love it!

    Got another question for ya — did you alter the formatting of the plugin at all? On my blog (blog.joshallan.com), the “If You Liked That…” header shows up as big as my post titles, and I’m not a big fan of that. Also, the spacing is weird. But I can’t for the life of me figure out how to modify the CSS… any ideas??
