I’m way too unmotivated to be jealous of the fame of other bloggers yet I find myself turning a dark eye in the direction of Tim Challies.
Early in 2002 The Bible Archive launched. Since I didn’t start full-swing posting until sometime later that year (perhaps even early the next) and really didn’t define the site as a blog until late 2003/early 2004 I was relegated to a third-tier blog (of course, this is what I tell myself).
Tim Challies, interestingly enough started blogging at the same time (2002). Early on he hosted a personal pictures to share with friends and family and eventually there were pithy updates like “I haven’t posted in a while”.
Now, Tim manages to post everyday (currently 1414 and ticking), sometimes twice a day and recently (as in for the last year and a half) with a quick-links sideblog. Tim goes around to conferences where he liveblogs, takes ridiculously detailed notes which he almost immediately compiles to long posts (his posts often clock in at almost 1000 words which are actually thought out even if I don’t agree with him) and at the same time manages to run his web design business (and here). But adding insult to injury he redesigns his website once a year, manages a secondary website which is devoted to book reviews (of which he’s posted over 300 all available at Amazon as well), is married and has 3 kids. Lastly, he’s recently written a book and its coming out January 11, 2008.
If you’ve gotten this far, you’re probably convinced: Tim Challies is stealing Time. He’s probably created something that is tearing a hole in the fabric of the space time continuum.
He must be stopped.

[…] the Bible Archive I ranted about a certain Tim Challies who has managed to perform crimes against the space-time continuum by posting every day (1414 and […]
Tim seeks cyber-fame and recognition in his posts/site. It is beyond blatantly obvious. He plays to the masses and his posts are just regurgitated common church light and fluffy drivel. I think Tim has deeper issues with self-worth and identity. Pray for him, but I wouldn’t aspire to be his web persona or even admire it… actually you should probably delete this post… it could add to the problem. Quality not quantity.
TIM CHALLIES 10 MILLION WORDS CHRISTIAN DANGER ! READING THE WORLDS BOOK MATERIAL FOR A CULTURAL DISCUSSION, CAN THAT BE RIGHT..?
