Hello Everyone -
It has hardly been a month now, since Elder Ballard gave his landmark talk at the BYU Hawaii graduation. If for some reason you did not hear about it, in a nutshell, the Mormon Church has officially given the membership the go ahead... to 'Blog On'.
I like to refer to it as... blogging for the Lord!
I have been blogging now for about a year on other peoples blogs. Over the past few months, I had seriously considered writing on my own blog, but had not gotten brave enough to actually do it.
I can't really explain what happened. About two days before Elder Ballard gave his address, I had a clear vision that I should finally just 'do it'. I did a little bit of research in deciding where to start my missionary work. I finally decided to write on a site -- called Hub Pages. I had never been to the site, nor heard anything about it.
I chose this site, because I knew that if I was going to have an opportunity to share the Gospel with non-members -- I was going to need to break out of the LDS blogs. Although I have enjoyed conversing with many who have investigated and joined the Church during the time that they were on the Lds Forums. Of course, I will still continue to do so.
For those of you who have not read my profile, I have spent a bit of time over at the Lds Forums as gVr. I did not realize that these two forums would be merging, until I had already signed-up. I am one of those who has about a billion alias email accounts. LOL
Some, over at the Lds Forums are aware that I had said that I was thinking of doing a blog. The More Good Foundation has really encouraged us as members to get out there and share the Gospel. Richard Miller, who is the 'More Good Foundation' constantly works with others to stay on top of what the Church would have members do, online, as far as sharing the Gospel. They are an excellent resource. They have given some great suggestions. If you are interested, they will even help you get started.
I have been so impressed with the More Good Foundation. I hope everyone is aware of them and what they are doing to further missionary work online.
I will continue to let you know how it is going over at the 'Hub'. I would also like to invite anyone else who might be interested in blogging on a site like Hub Pages. I am one of maybe three that are writing on the Lds Church. So it would be great to have even more.
I am glad that we have a place, as members, to offer support and love to one another. I think Mormons are awesome. I hope that in some way, I can be of help to you, as we get to know each other.
Talk again soon.
