Faith Blogging

We've all heard the old adage, "You're not supposed to discuss religion or politics in polite company." So why do so many people blog about these topics? Are social norms and etiquette different in the blogosphere than they are at your average genteel dinner party? Or have times just changed, and anything and everything is fair game for discussion and debate?

We'll explore these questions, at least as they apply to religion and faith, at the session I will lead on Faith Blogging Saturday morning at ConvergeSouth. During the session I hope we will be able to discuss:

What motivates people to blog about their faith?

How should faith bloggers handle hot-button issues and keep discussions under control and respectful to all involved?

Who are a faith blogger's audience, people who believe like they do, people who don't believe like they do, or a mixture of both?

What is the role of clergy and religious bodies in the blogosphere?

Do faith blogs break down stereotypes of people of a certain faith or do they enhance them?

What are the pros and cons of mixing politics and religion on a blog?

Can faith blogs strengthen the bonds between people of faith?

And that's just a start. If you have suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered, please leave a comment here or e-mail me at I look forward to seeing you Saturday morning.

About Me
For more than 20 years, Greensboro native Mickey McLean has worked in the traditional print media, and for the past 10 years he has been the managing editor of a major general interest magazine. This past spring he took the plunge and started his own personal blog, Carolina Christian Conservative, where he and others post items on faith and politics, with a little sports and popular culture tossed in. In other words, he's created his own electronic magazine, providing an outlet for him to cover topics he's interested in and present them from a Christian worldview.

I am new to the bogging world, but find it interesting. I am from the GSO area and have noticed your blog. I have two blogs that have been started becouse of my faith in Christ. They do not address faith, but are a direct result of my faith. Please see

My faith blog has been a great way to raise help for those in need in the wake of Katrina and Rita.

A lot of people have been helped because my blog has talked about putting your faith in action.

Check it out!

I feel its a great way to express yourself, after all people have to come to your blog, and if they dont like they can leave, right?
its not like knocking on there door and pestering them. likewise, I dont know anyone personally that feels the way i do, or even considers thing like religeon.
