So, the beautiful and witty Theresa (hey, she called me fabulous - go look for yourself!) has shared about our conversation last night about blogworthiness.
It began when I was chastised for my recent lack of activity on this site (although it appears she hadn't posted since Monday, either...). My meager excuse was that most of what was going on in my mind was not blogworthy. But, how do I determine what exactly is blogworthy? What are my minimum standards before I will post something for the world to see at www.shanecoffman.blogspot.com?
Lately, I have not been sharing personally incriminating information, such as the fact that I stink at home improvement, and each weekend attempt to upgrade our superfluous house in Edmond has Alice and myself leaving on Saturday night thinking we have actually just decreased its value.
Oops, now that's out in the open...
Additionally, I have withheld information about family issues I am going through. Those who know me well don't have to come here to read about it.
I find myself at times swallowing my thoughts on some matters of religion, especially legalism. I choose to be Christ-oriented and positive, rather than issue-oriented and negative. The constant bickering between Christians of different stripes as well as within singular congregations is irritating.
One area I have failed to gloat about sufficiently is the OSU baseball team, who, in just a couple of minutes, open up their Super Regional series against Louisville for the right to go to Omaha and the College World Series. Nor have I mentioned that the Other University failed to make the NCAA Tournament at all.
I constantly wish there were more funny things I could report. I realize that if we would just have some children, the stream of amusing events would increase dramatically. But that seems like a high price to pay just to have a more interesting blog.
So, I guess I just want this place to be an honest representation of me, and it naturally follows that I would choose what to post here carefully, as I would do the same with my words in a live conversation. That's my "C-S" personality shining through!
Today I join Theresa in offering cheers to the unblogworthy. And to that I add cheers to all who show an ounce of discretion in what they choose to post. Because diarrhea of the blog is so unbecoming.
