Controversy pushes blog readership up, I’m told.
But I like blogs that tout the helpful books, articles, and MP3s someone is reading or listening to (like Andy Naselli). I also like blogs that give me exegetical or grammatical or ministerial tidbits to chew on (like Phil Gons and Rod Decker). I’ve tried to make my little blog accentuate the positive like these blogs instead of majoring on controversy.
But now’s my chance! Someone has criticized me on another blog! If I can stoke this controversy, I could gain feed subscriptions… I could possibly make a cent off this blog for the first time ever!
Man! No controversy. No money.
I encourage others to read Phil Gons’s post. He’s saying that when you tally up the value of the books in a Logos package, you should consider the additional value of having a well-indexed book collected with others in a central location. I’ve said this same thing before (ask another blogger), but I didn’t say it in my Logos post and I should have.
(But, Phil, couldn’t you have at least called me a mean name? Maybe we could both benefit from this!)
