anyone out there?

by Amber

So, I often wonder...does anyone actually read the Life at Luther blog? Am I the only one reading the blog posts of my fellow bloggers? (Hello to all of you, by the way!) It would be totally sad to think we are writing to non-readers. If you DO read, what do you like reading? What can we write more about? What is your favorite color? Help us out! We want to make sure we're at least somewhat interesting! :) Obviously, winter break has given me too much time to think about this. Just curious!

A note to any with a critical eye: no, this picture is not blurry, I am focusing on the snowflakes. :)

I read you! I’m a remote student out in Thousand Oaks, CA (northwest of Los Angeles) who plans on heading to campus to start full-time next fall. I love the blog cause I get a little bit of the pulse of the community AND I get to see just how cold it is back there! As a native Cali, I’m not looking forward to the non-skiable snow piling up around there! :)

You are read, Amber, but blog comments don't reflect laughter and nodding in agreement or empathy well, so often there isn't a reason to comment.

Thanks for sharing your lives through the blog.

Definitely read the blogs - almost all of them. Enjoy reading about the lives of regular people on a mission to serve God - their ups and downs - ya know...real life. Thanks for sharing your lives with us and giving us different perspectives on lives and cultures. BTW...my favorite color is RED!

We are out here... And love to just read anything that is posted. It helps us out here in CA still feel connected to you since you are not out here anymore :-(

Amber,

Yes, I read "Life at Luther" whenever there is something new. I'm friends with Scott and Tim, but I enjoy everyone's posts. As a DL student, I have to take my "Luther fixes" where I can get them! Your photographs have been a real enhancement to the blog; you are quite talented with the camera. Keep writing and I assure you, there will be at least one avid reader!

I read all of the "life at luther" blogs! You all are great, and give me a glimpse of parts of life at luther I don't always see... I LOVE Amber's photos, by the way!

I started reading this when two of our former Interns from church were blogging. I just enjoy reading what it is like going to seminary and other things the bloggers are doing.

Happy New Year! Please know that I am a faithful reader of Life @ Luther. However, I am not alone in reading these blogs, some of my friends and family love to scroll down to Life @Luther, which is neatly tucked away at the bottom right corner of the Luther Seminary home page .So, be rest assured Amber, there is me and some others "out here" who love to read L@L blogs. As you for you, keep up with those great posts and you have ready readers “out here”. Happy New year of 2010!

As a former student I would love to hear about some of your classes and what you are reading, watching or listening to.

BTW my favorite color is purple.

There are stories that have their place, like, "I got no sleep because I studied for a Hebrew exam while serving at the battered women's shelter help desk". But the reason I'm lurking is to get glimpses of your faith development. I'd like to see stories that generally go like this:

My OT prof/ a curmudgeon on the internet/ an angry homeless man on the street/ the mother of a newborn I baptized / the council president of my hometown cong :

: said something that :

re-converted me/ made me have a vision / made me change my major / made me re-consider the pastorate / made me weep/ leap for joy/ sign up for Mother Teresa's nunnery.

etc.

Maybe it's crazy to hope for that from a simple seminary blog, like expecting to see flying cars come out of an auto paint shop, but that *is* why I read.
