blogs i read

i haven’t kept a blogroll on my site. no real reason, i suppose. there are SO many blogs i’d love to read everyday. but the problem is, i actually read them. and if i have hundreds of blogs in my reader, i’d spend WAY too much time on them. so i poke around from time to time and read others (mostly youth ministry blogs). but these are the blogs in my bloglines that i look at a couple times a day:

uncategorized blogs
Bob Carlton (bob is a good friend who blogs about a wide variety of subjects: spirituality, politics, personal stuff)
crowder’s blog (david’s personal blog)
David Crowder Band (the more official band blog — mostly posts by mike hogan)
Dave Barry’s Blog (my favorite humorist — provides much of the fodder for funny links on my blog)
dave palmer (close friend and great thinker. dave’s blog has a lot of liberal politics)
Think Christian (a blog by a collection of thinkers. they’re great at pointing to interesting stuff in the christian blogosphere and internet)
