How to Encourage a Blogger

Tim Challies has a list of ways to be a Barnabas to bloggers. Here's one:

Send a Note of Encouragement. Short of leaving a comment, this is probably the easiest thing you can do. Simply find the person's email address or contact form and send them a brief note, mentioning that you enjoy reading their blog (and perhaps why you enjoy the blog) and encourage them to continue seeking the Lord.

Ken Hagler is great at this. He's sent me uplifting e-mails which as a blogger I find rather...well, uplifting and encouraging. It's an idea that works well in all other areas of life, too.

So where do you hide your email? I have looked and looked; to do just as you note. L&H is great fun, you put together some wonderful diversions you find on the web, promote Art and share its history, and then post some really wonderful, thoughtful blogs on things Christian.

Thanks! My e-mail address is locustsandhoney2005 at yahoo dot com. It's toward the bottom of my sidebar, but I can understand how it could be missed.
