Who Are You?

Well I’ve been blogging since last September and I’m going to guess that I don’t even know more than half of the people that read this. So it is time to come on out from hiding. I want to know who YOU are.

  • Name
  • Where You Live
  • How You Know Me/Found My Blog

You can do this by leaving a comment. For those of you who find this difficult to do, I promise it is really easy. You only need to fill out the boxes of name and email (the website box is for a url like your own blog if you have one). The email doesn’t get published. It just provides a way for me to contact you.

If you are reading in a feed, please come over and say hi. I can’t wait to see who reads this…

    hey Tyler, I found your blog through a comment on Rich Kirkpatrick’s blog. I’ve snooped around, and enjoyed my visit. I’ll put you on my blogroll and come back. Great thoughts.

    Found your site while searching music terms and “Compassion International”. Enjoyed the music, we have a few worship songs on our site as well, no time for blogging though.

    Hey Tyler~
    I am Jeremiah Aja, a student at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY.
    I am from Sacramento, CA.
    I found your blog through some Google searching for a blog series I am doing as part of Asbury’s Web Parish—> www(dot)asburyblog(dot)net
    We used one of your posts as a good resource to charge pastors to blog and be a part of Twitter. Just wanted to let you know as I found it a GREAT post bro. It will go up on Saturday morning 9amEST. Check it out if you’d like.
    By the way, I am also a part of a project we call “Twiturgy” on Twitter- it is Scripture excerpts (from our online reader) on the liturgical hours of prayer. For the Eastertide Season, we are sending out 3 tweets a day, check it out! – @twiturgy.
    Thanks for a great blog!

    You followed me on twitter. So I read your twitter bio. Portland; where I have family. Christian; I am too. Cyclist and runner; I aspire. A few things in common, so I checked out your blog. Ended up taking the personality test. I’m an INFP.

    Nice to meet you. Hand extended for a shake.

    I ‘met’ you through your ad on CraigsList when you were trying to sublease. Unfortunately your apartment was in the wrong school district for my teens and after so many disruptions in their life I didn’t want to switch them again. We moved here recently from Florida. LOVE Portland. Anyway, in your signature of your email you had a link to your blog and I’ve been reading ever since. I haven’t found a place to worship yet here in Portland but have been considering checking out your church.

    Not sure how or where, but I probably saw someone else’s blogroll list. Got you in my Google Reader, and I’m good to go!

    Started checking out your blog and dig what i see so far man. I work with students in Orlando and realize how important worship is for them to connect with God. Always a cool thing to “meet” someone who has a heart for The Church and for students. Stoked to check in on your thoughts in the future.

    I came across your blog when looking for “Bad Twitter Methods” and your profile popped up with a skull and cross bones and red X’s over your username and stuff. The alt tag said – Beware of this man. He is socially media awkward.
