what about this idea?

So, after a fantastic chat with Steven last week about various and sundry gospel topics, I am proposing an idea. Actually, I had already thought about doing this, but wasn't sure how to bring it about. I enjoy having discussions about the gospel, especially when we can dig deeper into our own understanding of doctrines and principles. Sadly, these conversations do not come up very often. As much as I have thoughts, inspirations, and questions as I read the scriptures or other materials, I find that I often do not get a chance to voice those ideas and feelings, outside of writing them down in my own version of the "small plates." Far too often, our schedules are such that talking on the phone isn't often feasible, and we rarely get a chance to visit with each other in person. That being said, I have thought that possibly having a blog or some such spot devoted to sharing these kinds of ideas might be a way of entwining our spiritual understanding together.

But here is the deal. I realize that we are all busy people. I realize that many of us don't have a lot of time to post, let alone respond to posts. So if you're thinking, it's a nice idea, but I really don't see it working out, let me know now. If, however, you think that you could and would totally get behind such an idea, talk to me and we'll see about setting it up. I think we could even do it to where everybody in the family is a "contributor" so that I'm not the only one posting thoughts and questions...

Please, I know I'm not the most visited blog out there, but please give me some feedback so I know if it's worth it to proceed or not...

(just one more day until the weekend... I hope I make it!)

i love you and i love the idea... but the honest truth is that i probably don't have the energy to contribute much more than a supportive comment here or there-- I wish i had more in me!

I love blogging and I could totally get behind this idea. Not that what I have to say is particularly profound. The only thing is, I don't know if I will have blogging capability while in Rhode Island, so I may be out of the blogoshpere for three months.

Oh, and I like the idea as a whole! As long as you're not expecting a long essay about spiritual things. Because I'm lazy.
