Short and Sweet

August 16, 2007 — 3 Comments

Some people might understand the subtle humor in that title (hint: read my profile).

Anyway, after some deep consideration, I’m going to keep up this “short” posting process to some degree. It will be intermittent with longer posts on issues that require more than a short post. But I really enjoy reading short snippets every day instead of a huge chunk once a week. And the conversations and discussions that we’ve had are fantastic.

I also liked how the nanoblog is working as an “extra” page for the main blog. So, let me know what you think about this “change” as I work to keep blogging amidst a busy year ahead.

In 2005, he quickly rose to become a leading teenage spokesperson and cultural critic within the booming blogosphere, taking on issues such as MySpace, alcohol, homeschooling, pride, racism, tolerance, and other topics relating to our culture today. His blog has come to the attention of people such as Albert Mohler, C.J. Mahaney, Alex and Brett Harris, and La Shawn Barber. Tim’s written work has appeared in Lifeway’s Living With Teenagers (February 2012), Lookout Magazine, FUSION Magazine, The Brink Online, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Virtue Magazine, Regenerate Our Culture Online Magazine, and on many other blogs and websites across the internet like Marry Well and the Lies Young Women Believe Blog.

  1. Here is my entry that I said I would post.

    RYE: I rather like long entries, but a short entry with deep meaning is better then a long entry with not.

  2. Tim, I like the fact that you’ve been writing shorter posts lately. As much as I enjoy longer posts, if there’s several a week on the same blog I end up getting bogged down, so rotating short ones in is good.


  3. I’m sure other people appreciate that as well. I think it would be hard for people to read long posts every day or so.

    (By the way, don’t mind me. I’m just some random person.)
