The rest of the original blog post

So, anyway, I was looking at the very long list of progressive Church of Christ blogs that I’ve posted here for some time, and it occurred to me that I only have time to read a small fraction of these, and yet some of the ones I’ve never read could be truly excellent blogs that deserve more publicity.

I remembered what it was like to start my own blog and how much I appreciated it when other people plugged my work. And so I thought I’d just subscribe to them all and recommend the ones I like the most. It might even make a great series …

Then I decided to stop thinking all crazy, because there are a kabillion blogs on the list, and it’s impossible for me to read that much material.

On further reflection, I realized that the readers here, as a whole, would likely know who is doing good work. And so I decided to create a poll.

Here are the rules:

1. You may select up to 5 blogs. Just hit the “Next Blog” button, the poll will re-appear, and then vote again.

2. You may only select blogs you actually read. No plugging a friend’s blog unless you actually read it.

3. No voting twice for the same blog.

4. You are welcome to encourage readers of your blogs to vote for you. After all, the poll is inherently biased toward readers of OneInJesus because this is where it is. To reduce that effect, it’d help if people were encouraged to vote from a broader base — the readers of all the blogs if at all possible. Yes, self-aggrandizement is permitted.

5. If you want, it would be great if you’d read several of the blogs on the list and find some new ones to recommend, so long as you stay within your 5-blog limit. Links are available in the list .

A few final notes —

* Sadly, I’ve had to omit Cecil Hook’s seminal “Freedom’s Ring” because it’s been hacked and the family evidently has been unable to restore it. (Links to his material are at Restoration Voices, and so all is not lost!)

* I realize some of these are not technically blogs, but I just can’t make up a list like this and not include these guys.

* If you know that any of these blogs are now defunct, let me know so I can remove them from the list.

* If I need to add someone, let me know that, too. I’ll add them.

I’ve now moved the poll to a separate post and think (fingers crossed) that I’ve got it set to work even at 800 x 640 resolution. It creates a lot of extra space at higher resolutions, but it keeps me from having to retype all those names! (I took quite a while.)
