Now It's Your Turn...

Wondering how I came up with this list? I explored the interwebs! More specifically, when I checked out a Christian website, I checked out who was commenting and followed those who posted links to their websites. It's a fun way to play internet-tag and come up with a whole bunch of non-famous bloggers.

If you got through the list and managed to visit every single one of these blogs, kudos to you! Now it's time to make your own blog post about "50 non-famous Christian blogs by 50 non-famous Christians." It's harder than you think, but it's a lot of fun, and you'll meet a lot of cool blogs and the people behind them on your way. Hey, maybe you can even compile a list of 100 blogs! All I ask is you give me a little credit for the original idea and send a recommendation my way. God bless!
