I've Become Esteemed
I'm not quite sure when, or how, that happened.
Thanks to The Curt Jester for calling our attention to this Miami Herald article by Alexandra Alter, Mar. 12, in which your Humble, Faithful Blogster is mentioned very kindly:
.... For some bloggers, however, silence carries the most powerful Lenten message.
In a post titled ''Blogstinence 2005,'' Christian blogger Lane Core (esteemed author of weblog.theviewfromthecore.com) alerted his fans that he will not be blogging on Fridays during Lent. Blogsters Mark Shea mark shea.blogspot.com) and Peter Nixon (www.peternixon.net) regularly renounce their blogs for Lent, while Welborn, one of the guiding stars of the Catholic blogosphere, says many of her regular readers and commentators drop off during Lent.
''My intuition even as an addicted blogger is that people who give up blogging and looking at blogs for Lent are probably right,'' said Welborn, who posts suggested Lenten readings on her blog. "During Lent our call is to look at what is coming between God and us. If blogging and reading blogs is helpful, that's fantastic, but I think heavy Internet users would do well to consider whether we're using the blogs or whether we're being used by them.''
