We’ve gone to overtime baby!
It’s taken two long weeks to get here, but we’ve finally narrowed down the field of Southern Seminary related bloggers down to four. The comments, the hype – hype – hype – hype – hype – hype – hype, and voting have been intense. I want to thank all you guys that linked over and made this
weird idea worth doing.
The first two rounds resulted in 2181 votes. Here is how this round will work:
- There are four blogs left, you can vote for only one
- I’ve re-ordered the field based on total votes
- The voting will close on Saturday night (4/5/08)
- The poll is set to limit votes from the same IP address. This will only affect you if you are sharing an internet connection.
Choose your vote wisely. Here are a few questions to help clarify which blog deserves your vote.
- Which blog consistently glorifies Christ with its content? Does the blogger express a transparent love for God?
- Which blog encourages other believers? Does the blogger express a transparent love for others?
- If you could only read one of these blogs for the next year, which would it be?
- Which blog is the most helpful for the average pastor or seminary student?
Make your case. The comments are open for you to play the pundit. Enthusiastic support (and self-promotion) are welcome. Just be sure to make your case from the criteria above. You are also welcome to endorse one of the remaining blogs.
The statistics below are gathered from Google Reader. They don’t reflect feedburner’s feed count, but they do give a ballpark of one’s readership. I’ve tried to note who has feeburner stats that aren’t counted with a ** symbol. Don’t let these stats overwhelm you. Everyone likes to pull for an underdog!
