  What Is the BBOV?
Understanding the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©

BBOVThe BBOV grew out of a set of posts I wrote on Building a Lutheran Presence (click for Part 1 and Part 2). The first deals with the basics of blog building and writing, the second with ways of being noticed and gaining recognition both by people and by search engines and directories. Using a confessional Lutheran blogroll allows each blogger to advertise others' writings both to individuals and to the various search engines.

To explain in simplified form, the larger the number of links pointing to a blog, the higher it ranks. There are other factors also involved, but in general, if one blog mentioning "Martin Luther" is linked by 3 other blogs and another by 103, the one with the higher number will also rank higher. Of course, the math the search companies use includes instances of the keywords throughout all the blog's pages, the existing ranking of linked blogs, and other factors, such as being mentioned and linked in individual posts vs. in blogrolls.

Using the BBOV lets each participating blogger promote the greater cause of getting Scripturally sound, confessionally oriented information before as many people as possible. Also, as I add new blogs to the list, I also mention them in an introductory post (see In, Out, and on the Fence as an example), increasing even more the opportunities for individuals to find the blogs and search engines to rank them highly.

If you desire to use either the confessional Lutheran portion or all the blogs in my sidebar feel free to copy them individually or (much more easy!) just click here to request the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©. Tell me if you want only the confessional Lutherans or if you'd also like the others I list. If you wish to suggest your own (or another) blog for possible inclusion, please use the comments for this or any of the other BBOV posts.

Addendum: If you'd like to advertise your affiliation with the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©, please consider using one of the following graphics. See BBOV Buttons for the details.

I'm submitting my blog for your blogroll:

This Side of the Pulpit (http://pastorsblog.redeemer-enid.com)

Pr. Christopher Hall
These two have been added along with one other site. Let me know if you'd like a copy of the blogroll for your own sites.
I would also like to submit my blog for the BBOV. My blog is relatively new, still working out some of the kinks.

God Bless,
Pr. David Hansen
I would be honored if you would consider adding my blog to the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©

It's not quite the Lamb's Book of Life, but it's still quite auspicious company, to be sure.

Mark Birkholz
Mark Birkholz! I knew him in college! Heheh, I suppose that is part of why you're doing this - to keep us all connected.

Anyway, I stumbled into your listing through a friend's blog who is listed (Pastor Steve Cholak - The Crowned Ones). I'm not entirely sure my blog fits in here, but I thought I'd let you know about it and then you can decide whether to include me...

Notebook of Memory

Observations, thoughts and dreams, not always on theological topics, but always from a Christian mentality. I sometimes touch on theology or my life as a Lutheran, keeping in mind my "audience" is comprised of Lutherans, Catholics, atheists and "unaffiliated" folks. A CURF grad and former teacher with a Catholic boyfriend, I enjoy taking pleasure in the little things of life.

Thanks! :)
I would like to submit my brand new blog..

I'd like to submit my blog for the blogroll.



Pr. B.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and posting the answer to my Figure It Out Friday concerning Aaron Burr!

I've just begun blogging, but two different editors representing educational magazines have picked up postings of mine to print - and they are PAYING me! (So who knew...!)

While I am not a Lutheran, I almost feel like an 'adopted Lutheran' because I do work with a number of Lutheran Schools on the West Coast (mostly MS) and my curiosity concerning the term, 'Confessional Lutheran' has been heightened by your posts. I believe in confession and the three main creeds of the church and I thought Lutherans did as well. I'm also in the midst of changing denominations; this Lent has been a tough one.


The Tour Marm

Oh. Here is my URL for consideration:

I would like to submit my blog for the BBOV:

I am submitting my blog for your blogroll:

KESED Reflections

Landon Ledlow
Please consider adding "Lest Every Man Be Blind" to your blogroll http://lesteverymanbeblind.blogspot.com Though written by a confessional Lutheran, this is probably not the place for one to gleen what that means. I delve more into the search for Truth and the defending thereof against post-modernism. Basically, I ponder the questions that plague, and entertain, me. It's very self-serving. Always striving to get to the kernel and divest the chaff.
Ego quoque ephemeridem refero. (I too submit my blog):

Hi. I don't know if the offer still stands open, but CTS-FW has a new blog called: Concordia TheoBLOGical Seminary at www.seminaryblog.com

Pls. Consider my blog for your blog roll. Thanks! It is largely reblogs from Lutheran MS Pastors with a couple of others for Mormons looking to leave Mormonism.
(They compare things with sound, Christian Biblical doctrine. Some fall into Fund. Bap. Churches and this is a way for they to see a better doctrine in the Cofessional LCMS!)
