The most interesting thing about this blog....

I was notified yesterday that I had been chosen to be a member of a blog tour being conducted by Kem Meyer for the promotion of her new book, Less Clutter, Less Noise. At the end of this month, I'll be hosting my first ever give away of her book, and will participate by contributing a question to her Q&A. She's posted a link to my blog from her blog and also on, which is a ministry of Granger Community Church.

So maybe a few more people may be stopping by to sit quietly. I had a little panic thinking about that since let's face it, this blog is kind of disaster in a lot of ways....half of you can't see the background because you use Safari. Half of my posts aren't tagged. My tagging system is as random as I am. A bunch of you only read me on Facebook, so I get no traffic credit. I'm baffled by google analytics. I write about whatever comes into my head, so you could be reading about mosaics one day and my kids poop the next. I don't even get very many comments. A lot of you just breeze in and read and sit quietly and then leave without saying anything.

But I decided that the thing that is really interesting about my blog is the people that follow it. I just thumbed through those folks, most of whom I know...and the range of life experiences and perspectives are as wide-ranging as my ideas for things I could paint. For a long time, I only knew one kind of person, one shade of Christianity, one small microcosm of experiences. My blog friends are a rainbow of interesting people from a lot of different backgrounds. Not all of them are "Christians." That's probably because this isn't a Christian blog.

I don't know if I have anything to offer the conversation going on about Kem's book. But if I do, I think it may have something to do with you, not me.

I love your blog, Ness! It is refreshing because it is random, like life! When I find the courage to blog, your's will be at the top of my "must read" list!

I'm just saying hi and commenting because today I don't want to sit quietly and just read.


Hi. :)

I don't know who Kem is, but I think she (if she is a she) is VERY smart to love your blog and want you to promote her book! : ) I always comment. You know why? Because people like comments. I think commenting is the kind thing to do.
