Howdy from Charlotte, about 7 hours before our conference starts! I am up later than I should be trying desperately to finish a task that I do not want hanging over my head and distracting me during the conference, and I have discovered a nice benefit to my blog (for myself, anyway) that I did not anticipate.
I often come across articles in the newspaper and in magazines that I want to keep for future reference (say in scripts, sermons, or other writings), but a system for filing them and retrieving them effectively and efficiently eludes me. (Suggestions are welcome!) Mr. Ames seems to have a wonderful system, but he is light years ahead of me in this regard.
However, if something moves me enough (and I have a spare moment) to pen a note on this blog about it, then the reference is highly retrievable. I just now used the blog’s search capabilities for administrators to retrieve some references I wanted, found in this old post: “Mind and Brain: NOT the same…” Very nice!
Well, break’s over: back to work–and then sleep! Our time “pre-conference” has been amazingly profitable and I am so thankful for the opportunity to attend. Everyone’s prayers for the success for the conference would be appreciated!
