DarrenandandrewjonesI met up for coffee with Problogger Darren Rowse in Melbourne for our first face-to-face. We were talking about doing a blogging event together at next years SXSW in Austin.

The Pope got blogged on his USA tour.

Godblogcon blogging convention will be held in Las Vegas Sep 19-21. I will be one of the speakers. Details are not up yet but you might want to start planning to be there.

Internet Monk, on behalf of the Asbury Bloggers Society, puts forward a list of top bloggers Leading the list is . . . hey . .wait a minute . . thats ME!!! [sounding surprised] . . . what incredible foresight and impeccable taste has our IM friend.

“1. Tall Skinny Kiwi- Is there a better blog to model everything we all like about blogging? Andrew blogs his life without going into cat pictures. He blogs ministry, important ideas, and contemporary developments in evangelicalism with equal ease. It’s a visually interesting blog that makes all of us consider what a comprehensively interesting blog should be. At Andrew’s blog everything is in balance and familiar, but also constantly changing and fresh.” Internet Monk, The Distinquished Faculty of the IM School of Blogging

Thanks Michael. BTW have you seen my cat called Charlie Chaplin? Really, check it out. Charlie Chaplin, now older and bigger, is missing at the moment and we are hoping she [yes, a girl] will make her way back home. Say a prayer for Charlie.

    Hey Andrew,
    Great to hear you talk last night. Several things you said resonated with me, including the idea about teaching emerging church people the basics of being good neighbours / friendly – I wrote a post on Sunday called ‘The failure to be friendly’
    touching on a similar issue. I suspect hospitality is a basic thing we may have to (re)learn. Your comments on evangelising to a people group and then encouraging diversity in worship were also helpful – thanks!

    andrew – shock of all shocks, i am sensing some directive to go to godblogcon in september. whoa … to quote Aussie film, Strictly Ballroom, “That was certainly unexpected!”
    perhaps i’ll learn more about how to put together a multiple-media and new media compilation of the work i’ve been doing the past decade?? dunno yet.
    any tips for us first-timers to godblogcon? how do i/we prepare?

    Hope Darren paid! I know he owes you one!! :-)))

    This is my first time reading your blog. I almost asked a stupid question. I was about to ask if you were the tall guy or the bald guy, then I remembered the name of your site. That could have been embarrasing.

  • Wow that blogging event would be something to watch out for. I hope you find your cat Charlie soon.
