A Few Good Men

I have a quick update and a request...

I found out I have a slipped disc in my low back. It is doing better, but I am still not 100%. All in all, however, the doctor said my back looks good. That is encouraging! No new job yet, but at least the present one is still hanging on.

I have a favor to ask those of you who regularly read my blog. When I originally put links to other blogs, it was pretty much even between male and female bloggers. I noticed that 3 or 4 of the males worked at churches and used their blogs mainly for announcements and so forth. That's great for church members, but not very beneficial to others. I took some off, but now my list is unbalanced in gender. As soon as I get around to updating my html, I have at least three more females to whom I will link (Hanni, Patti, Patchouli), so then it will be even more lopsided. I was wondering if each of you could recommend one or two males whose blogs you like and email me the links. I'm thinking email would be better so as not to offend anyone who you didn't pick. I'll check them out as time allows and possibly link to them. Then again, does anyone know what the stats of bloggers are? If the stats support the male/female percentage in my links, I would feel a little better. Thanks!

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement on my blog today. It was very nice to read. (Especially since the other comment today was from a porn spambot.)

I think it interesting that you want to have a gender-balance blogroll.

I don't give that much thought. If someone links to me, I link back as a courtesy without a lot of thought about anything, not even a lot about what their blog is about.

So far I haven't felt that any of the other blogs are objectionable so I haven't had to worry too much about it.

The other links are just sites that I find interesting for one reason of another.

Jel, the comment above this one, is a frequent reader and commenter. I really appreciate folks who have something to say, makes the blog more interact, which is the cool thing about blogging in genearl

(Heavenly Father, bless Mark today lord. If it can serve Your purpose please touch his body, heal him. Also Lord, I would like to lift up his work situation. Please Lord, may he find something that supports his family as well as pleases You. --Amen.)

Hi Mark, sorry to hear about your back, but glad to know that you're much better now. Will pray for you.

I'm going to email you some men's blogs that I like.

God Bless!

By the way, thanks so much for your great insights about "love" in my blog. Really appreciate them.

Hello Brother. I found your blog through a comment on "Sandra's blog."
I certainly hope your back gets better.

If you're looking for more male bloggers, check out our little blog family through the link from Sandra's blog (or mind) to "Randy."

Take care.

HI Mark,
All the male blogs, you can find on my blog. I think it is important that you find blogs on your own also. I found it real easy by clicking on the names of people in the comments sections of blogs-people that resonante with me. I then check out their links and the people that comment on their posts. I even go as far as clicking on the people that post to their blogs. It can take you on an interesting journey.

But you have to have the time. I haven't done it as much as I want-but will do more this summer.

Praying for your slipped disc.
