Seeking and Discovering Life on Other Blogs

linksThe “other” Mr. Piper, at the blog 22 Words, has people busy today recommending other blogs.  (Hint, Hint!)   Although the comments refer to entire blogs, I’ve done some work for you and linked to some individual posts.  Not all the suggestions posted were blogs of Christian interest, though most of the ones I’ve highlighted are.  Here’s some fun links for you.

+ + + + + + +

In a collection of some of the worst real estate photos, here’s one called Beds, Baths and Altars.

At a blog called The Fool’s Gold, here’s a review of a new British book called Total Church.

At Parchment and Pen, Dan Wallace discusses the possibility that a certain theological view on the role of women could actually be fertile soil for wife abuse.   Or better yet, on the same blog, same page, Michael Patton’s discussion (confession?) and about 60 comments on Can You Marry The Wrong Person?.  (Yeah, I gotta bookmark this one; I was reading it several months ago, and got away from it…)

Sometimes a blogger reveals extremely personal highs and lows of life, and sometimes both in the same post.   Female readers especially will want to spend time at DancingInTheMargins; you can dive in with this post.  (But not male readers… she addresses her readers as “My Darling Cupcakes.”)

There’s a lot of interesting stuff to get back to at Reid Monaghan’s blog, PowerOfChange; but for now, check out this picture of a bibliochaise.

At BetweenTheTrees, the one that intrigued me the most was actually a series of links to some thumbnail sketches — some very sketchy indeed — on various periods in Church History.

The blog Altogether Too Much Privacy gets my award for transparency and honesty.   Here’s a post on promising to pray for someone.   Love this quote on the top of each page: “Originality is the fine art of remembering what you hear but forgetting where you heard it.”- Laurence Peter

At the blog,, this article on Ten Reasons Not To Ask Jesus Into Your Heart was somewhat traditional for a supposed “college” blog authored by a 20- and 16- year old, but I thought one of you out there might need to read it.

In a personal finance blog called Get Rich Slowly, here’s 5 Things It’s Cheaper to Do Yourself.

Okay, here’s an exception; it’s a photo blog, you gotta scan several pages at CakeWrecks (it’s about wrecked cakes; but some of them are actually pretty good.)

To see more full blogs, refer back to the first link in this post.   But if you’re already in an article, and you want to read more, take your cursor up to the navigation bar and select the date-specific information and delete it, leaving only the blog’s main URL, and then just hit enter.   Then again, most blogs allow you to return to the current page simply by clicking on the logo or title at the top of any given page.


  1. I have Cake Wrecks highlighted in my favorites because it is hilariously funny and I almost fell off my chair when I first found it- especially if you read the older posts–
    Check out and click on the Demotivators link- if you think that cake wrecks is funny, you will enjoy this site–

  4. Thank you for linking to my blog. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it.

    And of course, though I love “my darling cupcakes” I also love my “rough yodas”. ; ) That is the name I am hereby giving to all men who visit.

    So thank you Rough Yoda.
