I saw this tweet from Tyler Braun yesterday:
I naturally went to the link and was a little shocked.
Go and check out who the top 50 Most Influential Bloggers of 2009 are here
Does anyone see something missing? I did right away. Sure it could be that you hardly know who any of those people are, but the lack of Christian bloggers on the list was glaring. The blogs that should be the most influential are not on the list. Sure the people that put that list together could have excluded them or could have never checked out their blogs all together.
What I realized was that I was getting caught up in the Christian Community Blog World. I was more concerned about being influenced and influencing others inside the world of Christian Blogs, while neglecting others that surround me. Not saying that we need to stop reading Christian blogs or hold a blog burning service, but who are we influencing?
