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)
(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)
Finding Rhythm (the personal blog of zach lind, the drummer from the band jimmy eat world)
ragamuffin diva (claudia burney’s blog. i love her writing)
steve case (good friend and ys author)

Mike King (mike is a contemplative gadfly, a good friend, and the director of youth front)
