BBOV Updated, Believe It or Not!
The Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
Thanks to all who submitted blogs for consideration. Most of these came courtesy of their authors but a few were recommended by others. This time around, we add thirteen Lutheran sites
while making changes to four existing entries
. I also made two deletions
— one from the Lutherans and one from the Other Blogs list. Entries continue to cover a wide range of theological and personal turf. Pick through the newbies and give the changes another read; maybe some of them will become new favorites. Also, please welcome the newbies to the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©
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).BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION

I list St. Charles Place

)" It's also a blog of Pastor Paul Beisel.
