Sarah and I enjoy listening to NPR podcasts when we go on long drives, our favorite being Speaking of Faith. However, we also listen to This I Believe sometimes. At the beginning of January we decided that we would both write one and submit it. I had plans all month to create a beautiful, deep and reflective piece to submit.
Around 11pm on January 31st I was typing madly, trying to throw something together in about 30 minutes. I decided to write about how I believe in blogging. It seemed fitting. I received an email last week from This I Believe letting me know that while my essay was not selected to be broadcast, it was put on their online database of essays (like every other one that is submitted, I imagine). However, if you want to read about some of the reasons I believe in blogging, you can check it out here.
