Woah, so, okay, people have unanimously requested I write longer blog posts. That's interesting. See, I thought the "cool" thing to do nowdays was to make your blog posts short. Like, really short. 140 characters long, I hear.
Did I mention I think Twitter is a dumb idea? It's like...a website that just keeps track of your Facebook statuses. I don't update my Facebook status that often, actually, because I feel compelled to write joke statuses like "black is the new black", and I can't always think of one-liners off the top of my head.
Okay, maybe I don't like Twitter because it's a dumb-sounding name. Whatever.
I have no problem with writing longer blog entries. I like to write. That's actually one of the reasons I wanted to become a priest: the idea of writing a homily every day is exciting. It's kind of a nerdy reason to want to become a priest, I'll admit, but it's true. I've written ten or so different homilies all in my free time.
Of course, the only time I had to write a homily, it was almost impossible to write anything because I had no ideas. My ideas flew away, like a butterfly trying to escape a net. In the end, I just repeated ideas I've heard from other people--our local bishop, Saint Paul, Saint John and Saint Catherine of Genoa. Everyone really liked the sermon, but I was disappointed because I know I can write better that. I kinda only wrote two sentences; everything else came from another source.
But other than that, I'm pretty good at writing, so I shouldn't have a problem writing longer blog entries, if that's what people want me to do.
