My Plan is No Plan, Part 1

Proverbs 2:10  When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

If you’ve seen the ads for the upcoming premier of the Big Brother House reality show, you might remember the model saying that her plan for the game is having no plan.  That kind of reminded me of my electronic footprint on the web.  And, since I’ve been asked, off and on, how and why I do what I do, here’s an explanation of sorts.

I first found Facebook, where my varied life quickly accumulated a good sized group of friends, some spiritual, some not.  But my use of Facebook was originally just communication with people I knew, all over the world.  With no thoughts of anything more.  And I was quite happy with that for awhile.

Within a year of going on Facebook, I discovered Twitter.  I’d already been haunting a number of forums on various techie subjects, but I found that Twitter had a unique appeal for my online life.  Many of the spiritual leaders I appreciate tweet interesting quotes and links to blog posts.  And the tech sources highlight new articles that way, as well.  So, I opened a Twitter account to follow all the people and things that interested me. 

Over time, to keep some of the more prolific tweeters from overwhelming everything else and to keep like subjects together, one account has become four.  My original is the spiritual people that I follow, the second one is for my tech sources, the third is for news and entertainment people and sources (including the local police), and the fourth is for my sources about writing and blogging.  And, next post, we’ll get into what that all led to.  But how did you get into your online life?


As always, continue to pray for Dana and her family, Scott, Russ, Columbia, Jimmy and Betty, Mindy, Curtis, Peggy, Joyce, myself, and Libby.  Who has God put on your heart?  Those special people that God wants us to consider in prayer.
