Blogging, like Satan, is alive and well on planet Earth

Don't misinterprete the title of this post. It is simply an allusion to a book by the American evangelist and Christian writer, Hal Lindsey, titled Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth.

Blogging and the devil have nothing in common -- other than the fact that both of them love to walk to and fro on the face of the earth, seeking whom to devour. Last time we checked, blogging was winning. Far more people are under the influence of blogging that the devil's.

Sin is out, bloggin is in.

It used to be said that "The devil findeth work for idle hands". Now, how can he any longer, when the once-idle hands are now busy in eternal conversation with computer keyboards.

Sorry for the digression. Twas da devil.

This is what ChristianWriter had to say in response to my last, despairing post:
"But of course you must blog. Don't be selfish. Think of the people who stalk your blog daily when they should be doing more grown-up things like working.Blogging rules. Don't abandon ship. And that's an order. "

My friend, Chude, has just joined the blogging train, just when I was thinking of abandoning ship.

Even iGwatala, who first caught the blog-fatigue (blog-flu?) disease, has been cured miraculously.

What shall we say to these things?

OmoAlagbede is back to reclaim his place in Blogaria.

PS> If this blog will not allow the novel to see the light of day, then perhaps the novel was never meant to be. Ha ha!

LOL. That's very funny. My novel has not been published either. Can I blame this on blogging too---even though I have not actually finished the novel or started actively seeking a publisher?

Great post!

...and if blogging is winning the devil, then I am afraid. Does this then mean that blogging might directly or indirectly be the devil's tactic 2 lure us away from other more important things... like say ehm the Bible?? LOL

I need to go down on my knees and pray about this.

p.s. As I write this, my book is open on my laptop. I should be writing it, but I'm blogging. Oh boy

lol. my personal theory is that blogging is a new communal art form that bypasses the capitalistic tendencies of publishing houses... {-;
