I would like to share with you the blog of Mike Swims. I met him at a congregation in Jacksonville, Florida. He has a blog called Faith Forum where he posts his studies in Apologetics. I hope you enjoy reading them.
Like Ron, I still use the “pen to paper” motto as well. I use a 3×5 sheet of folded paper to write my grocery lists on; write my list of songs that I lead on the Lord’s Day; write the library class schedule down when I substitute in the public school libraries; jot down ideas and thoughts for future blog articles.
My favorite place to sit is my in home library room where I study, write, and post my articles to my Bible article blog.
How will I usher out 2010 and welcome in 2011? About the same as Ron. To me, one day is just like another, no matter what the calendar might say. More than likely, I’ll be up composing my next article for my blog, either in my mind or on paper.
How do I organize myself? Usually through the use of lists written on a 3×5 sheet of lined paper that I carry with me. Grocery lists and lists of the daily classes coming into a school library, are usually pretty detailed lists. Plus, if I get an idea for a blog article, I can quickly write it down before I forget it! 🙂
While scanning the Twitter posts this morning, I came across this blog by a “pastor” that I thought was eye-opening: http://ht.ly/31NnY
I pray that the Lord’s church doesn’t start following this latest “trend.”
Saturdays are like any other day for me. Whatever needs to be done is done. This morning, I’ll go grocery shopping, get my song list ready for the song service tomorrow, write and post another article to my blog, study my adult Bible class lesson to present tomorrow morning, and walk my dog (or rather she walks me!) :).
My social media habits are mostly on Twitter and Facebook. Both of these sites are good for promoting your blog or for getting the latest news reports. When Eddie Watkins and Kevin Cauley first began The Preacher’s Files site, I was very active on their Bible study forum, but due to my work commitments, I became less involved on that site. I am registered on SaintsMeet.com but rarely go there.
As far as the latest area church news, there are many brethren who are gone on vacation, the results being a lot of empty pews. Guess that’s one drawback of the summer months.
1st semester accomplishments are:
1) Posted 248 Bible study articles to my blog (wrote most of them).
2) Presented 13 Bible-based sermons before the Montana St. congregation.
3) Presented 23 Bible study lessons before the Montana St. adult Bible class.
4) From Jan – June, 2010, I’ve had 13,295 folks from 128 countries hit on my blog site. There were 61,543 page views during this period. Of these visitors, 67 percent were new visitors to my blog.
5) Presented 6 Bible-based lessons to the residents of our local Veterans Home.

I am announcing my new website first here among my friends at the Fellowship Room. When you plan a new website, you want it to reflect who you are. Your interests need to be primary. My old blog, Preacher Pages, was more narrowly focused on Biblical material.
Years have passed since I began that site and I have expanded my scope in the interim. Accordingly, the new site has its own domain and it is more open-ended. The content will range from Biblical studies and articles to Christian fiction, writing, social media, Reading, Books. etc. Please visit and offer some feedback. The site is new and I will continue to add to it and hopefully build something special.
So, I announce, The Moving Word blog. Thanks to Randal Matheny for so much help with the new site. He is a great friend and co-worker. God Bless you.
Who have I help know God lately?
I play a small part in our local weekly television broadcast of the gospel, which covers El Paso county and surrounding counties.
I am one of the Bible class teachers, teaching our adult class on Sunday mornings.
Since January of this year, my Bible study blog has reached out to almost 24,000 visitors with almost 100,000 pages being viewed as of this date.
