The BBOV: An Overdue Update
A Net Gain in Lutheran Netizens
For the first time in over a month, we have an updated Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
. I doubt that these are the only changes; it seems that each update brings one or more responses concerning adding, deleting, or changing a listing.
Now if you're not sure what to make of the BBOV or wonder about the benefits of being listed and of listing others' blogs, please read the first three links under Aurous Effluence
in the sidebar. Those who'd like the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™© can either email me
or copy the list from the Alley's source code (click View | Page Source
in Firefox or View | Source
in Internet Explorer).New (or Recycled) Kids on the Block
As is my custom, I'll introduce the new enrollees in alphabetical order. Therefore, first in line (and also longest waiting since the previous update) is The Children of God
, a thoughtful look at life and Lutheranism through the eyes of Emily, the wife of an LCMS pastor.
Another member of the fair sex is our next new play pal. Please welcome Hoffman Homemaker
, a labor of love from Melynda Hoffman.
Now we come across a bit of a conundrum: How is it possible that we have not one, but two Twenty-first Century incarnations of the long-deceased Dr. Martin Luther? Unbelievable as that may seem, Dr. Luther in the 21st Century and his faithful sidekick Forty-two (a Douglas Adams
fan?) bring you Lutherama
even as you continue to enjoy the antics of the aforementioned reformer through Luther at the Movies
It pleases me to discover that the Lutheran Enigma
has finally joined his spouse in the ranks of confessional Lutheran bloggers. Please, then, give a shout-out to Pastor Gary Gehlbach.
The Rapp Files
stand next in line for official introduction. No, these are not the bootleg recordings of a stuttering hip-hop star. No, E. Rapp is "a Lutheran layman, technical writer, amateur musician, recovering Methodist, and exiled buckeye residing in Detroit, Michigan."
Now you get to meet Satis Est: A Confessional Lutheran in the ELCA
. Need I say more?
Looks like Dr. Luther ain't the only one who's "back from the dead." I was quite happy to receive an email from Michael Schuermann
telling me that he's back in business once again. Since he's also busy at seminary, I pray that he'll be a good blogger and not get his tail in a crack with his online expressions.
Obviously, this Aardvark has no particular problem with well-mannered Lutheran bloggers remaining anonymous
. Therefore, I gladly introduce The Unknown Lutheran
(Der Unbekannter Lutheraner
) to you and encourage your patronage of his site.
With a nod to This Is Spinal Tap
, I conclude the presentation of the new arrivals with Volume 11
, "because a maximum volume of 10 is just not enough."This Neighbor Moved Across the Street ...
Adam Roe recently wrote to tell me that while the URL remains the same, he's renamed Working Out My Salvation
to The Wittenberg Catholic
.and This Neighbor Moved Out
Finally, we bid adieu to Sword of Gustavus
, whose busy life interferes with quality blogging.
For these and all others enrolled in the BBOV, links back are certainly appreciated. And don't forget that all
of those listed benefit when you use the entire blogroll. Also, if you'd like to graphically point to the Alley and the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©, you may use the above design from St. Charles Place
or one of these blog buttons:
Each of these buttons measures 80x15 pixels. Should you choose to use one, please link back to either the main Aardvark Alley URL or else to the post What Is the BBOV
Finally, if you own or know of a Lutheran blog demonstrating a quia
confessional subscription and would like me to consider it for inclusion, please leave a comment. And again, for more information about why this stuff benefits confessional Lutheran blogging, morality, and other worthwhile endeavors, please check out the first three links under Aurous Effluence
(particularly the first one) in the sidebar.
