Recently, I have heard many rumors saying that the Church did not want us to have blogs. Every time I would hear this - I would literally cringe a little. I know several wards who have YW and RS blogs to announce activities, classes, reminders, etc... they have actually closed these blogs due to the RUMORS about the church not wanting us to have them. Yes - they do want us to take full advantage of the official church website calendars for our wards, but blogging does not take away from this - or at least shouldn't. And everyone knows how important it is to use our time wisely - and not spend too much of it in front of a computer (or on a handheld device) doing nothing (a.k.a. blog hopping....I am as guilty as the next person for blog hopping, but I do limit myself to 10-20 minutes a day).
Today - I found an article FROM THE CHURCH WEBSITE that encourages us to blog. Yes - you heard that right - not only do they want us to blog, but they encourage it! You can all rest easy now. Here is the article about it. Happy blogging!
