It’s 4 p.m. Do you know where your blogchildren are?

Readers may have noticed a new feature on the sidebar — under the blogroll, we’ve got a link to a list of our blogchildren.

What are blogchildren? As noted in the link, they are the “blogs and bloggers who have stated that they were inspired to start blogging after reading Times and Seasons, and/or who have stated that they modeled their blogs (in whole or in part) after T & S.”

Our current list of blogchildren was hastily constructed by Kaimi, based on his recollection of blog statements. It currently contains the following blogs: A Bird’s Eye View, A Motley Vision, By Common Consent, Let Us Reason, Let Your Mind Alone, and Sons of Mosiah.

We would like to make sure we have an accurate and up-to-date list. (We do want to keep up with our kids, after all!) So if your blog isn’t on the list but should be, or if it is on the list but shouldn’t be, please let us know, by e-mail or by comments. Thanks!

    What about people who started blogging because of T & S? Reluctant blogchildren? Petulant blogchildren?

    They would be our blogbastar . . .
    Ah, never mind. :)

    Well, I had kind of wanted a blog for a while. There were a few things that contributed to this but I think Times and Seasons was a big one. Mostly I think it was from when I first started reading T&S and thinking “this Nate Oman guy is an ass- but I am entertained by what he writes” and for some strange reason my desire to have a blog was there after sollidified.

    I hope that the previous statement is not viewded as an ad hominem attack, and further that it is understood that I do not in fact think negatively about any of the Times and Seasons contributors.

    You just think that I am an ass. As Dogberry would say, please let it be written down so that it can be remembered in his punishment!

    “You just think that I am an ass.”

    So hurry up and post something to entertain us already. We miss having Nate Oman to kick around!

    And now an implicit comparison to Nixon. The hits just keep on coming… ;->

    Apparently we’ll have to pay Nate his billable rate now to get him to post.

    I too have recently launched my own web journal. I would definitely say that T&S drummed up my interest in the bloggernacle.

    I am a son of David Sunderwall. Well, sort of. I was blogging before I came across his blog. However, it was his blog that made me want to blog about LDS topics, which of late I seem to have been doing less of.

    Ian,

    You’ve now been added to the list. :)

    I started blogging before T&S was around. However, some (emphasis on some) of the posts and comments at T&S are comparable to the derision expressed in blogs that did prompt me to start blogging. They weren’t Mormon blogs. Actually, one’s an ex-mo and the others are libertarian. Let that not be read as an attack on T&S as a whole, just disenchantment with some of the material.

Times and Seasons is a place to gather and discuss ideas of interest to faithful Latter-day Saints.
