Lawson writes . . . sharing thoughts and memories

Back to Blogging

Filed under: Uncategorized — lawsonjolly @ 5:00 am

Today, I would like to be a little personal to all that read my blogs.  You have encouraged and challenged me.  I never knew when I began blogging that it would be such a joy.  Thank you for how you caused me to pursue this writing.

I have written almost 400 blogs and so many wonder how I keep having so much to say — but then you know me!  I still have numerous experiences and situations to write about.  (Perhaps it is because of the B-12 my wife has me on and it prompts the memory of one with age.)

There are so many faithful readers, and I never knew the readership would grow so much.  New readers continue to follow my blogs daily. (And to new or recent readers, my best blogs are in the early months.  Check the archives.)  However, a few months back I began to slack off the daily blogs.  It occurred as a result of a new responsibility I began.

Although I have served continually as an interim pastor from Alabama, the Florida Panhandle, and central Florida since my retirement, I began a new interim in January.  There seemed to be added responsibilities that I felt needed to be addressed, and I accepted the task gladly.  The time element and mental energy required left little for me to write blogs.

I have from time to time printed reruns under different titles just to assure readers that I was still alive!  With many emails and inquires, I have felt a responsibility to renew my efforts.  That I have done.  I will not promise a daily blog, but there will be some production regularly enough to avoid guilt on my part.

After all, why am I blogging?  I invite you to read a couple of old blogs addressing that question.  Why Am I Blogging? (This date had two blogs. Scroll down below Drive-In Theatre.) and Why Do I Continue to Blog?

Thank you again.  Have a blessed day!




  1. Thank you for your continual writtings. I look forward to them each and every time.

    Your brother in Christ! Duds!
