There are many other great blogs being nominated as well. Go have a look…

PalinRumors.com keeps track of claims and facts

Charles Martin of Explorations saw his blog traffic explode when he listed all of the rumors and facts that he could find about Sarah Palin. He made an appearance on FOX News and now has launched PalinRumors.com. Currently, the original and widely distributed blog post is there but he will be adding to it other rumors and claims as they arise.

Spreading some love to fellow travelers and bloggers

I am not a very consistent blogroller. Up to now, my list of links has been an after thought. I am not sure I will stay on top of things but I have added some new ones.
I want to mention four of the new links. First, go visit John Shore’s blog – Suddenly Christian. John is a winsome, funny, prolific and lately, controversial Evangelical writer who produces some entertaining and thoughtful posts. John is an adult convert to Christianity who brings a fresh and sometimes uncomfortable perspective to the Evangelical world.
The Marin Foundation is the brainchild of Andrew Marin. Not a blogger – yet – Marin seeks to do research and build bridges between religious and LGBT communities with an ambitious mission and set of values. He may in the middle enough to bother some people on either extreme, but this is where he believes he should be. He is currently writing a book about his views.
Wayne Jacobsen is on a roll. He published the NY Times #1 best seller, The Shack recently and it has changed his life. His blog is a bridgebuilding effort, which is a natural outgrowth of his work with Bridgebuilders. Wayne was a catalyst behind the First Amendment Center Guidelines on Sexual Orientation in schools. I have been a friendly acquaintance of Wayne via a meeting at Grove City College through mutual friends about three years ago.
It has taken me too long to put up a link to Mark Yarhouse’s Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity. The front page reads like a blog although without comments. Mark work on narrative sexual identity therapy was featured in a recent American Journal of Family Therapy article and is referenced at the ISSI site.
Enjoy!

New blog format: What about it?

Weboverlord Paul and I are experimenting with new formats and here is one I want to test out for a spell. The colors are not much different but I think I like the two column format. We are considering a science digest in a blog format where various writers could post science news of relevance to sexuality and mental health issues.

I welcome comments…
