Calling All Blogger Friends – Help Me Create a New Blogroll

The Journalist's Blogrollphoto © 2007 Martin Stabe | more info (via: Wylio)


As I announced and you probably noticed, I moved my website from Dreamhost to Patheos last week. This move has already been quite fun for me. If you found my site as a result of my affiliation with Patheos, welcome!

One thing that we weren’t able to bring over to the new site was my blogroll.  This is where I list many of the friends who read my site and of whom I try and read theirs.  So, this is my casting call for anyone who would like to be on my blogroll!

Here’s what I need ya to do:

  1. Add a link to “Kurt Willems – The Pangea Blog” to your blogroll.
  2. Leave me a comment with the following info: a) Name, b) link to your blog, c) a brief description of what you blog about, d) your social media links [twitter / Facebook] and e) confirmation that I’m on your blogroll as well (5 brief things).  In the blogosphere we often call this “swapping links.”
  3. Add me as a friend in various social media contexts if we aren’t yet connected in some way. Twitter, Facebook, email list.  On Twitter specifically, make sure you let me know that you followed me so I can follow you back.  Sometimes people slip through the cracks 🙂

That’s it.  In the next several days I will be creating a thorough blogroll.  Also, for those of you who already have me listed, do me a favor and at least remind me so I don’t forget to add you on the new site!

Thanks again for connecting with me!  It’s really amazing the way the world continues to shrink as I get to know folks on the web.  Thanks for making my experience such a good one!

  • Kurt,

    I read your blog almost daily. But, I don’t have a blogroll on my own blog. My blog is a smaller part of a larger website that provides updates and information about our ministry here in Albania amongst the Gypsies (Roma). I would love to be added to your blogroll, but sadly I can’t reciprocate. We are friends on Facebook though. If you would like to add us, our website is:



  • Stephen G. Parker

    Hi Kurt. Peace and blessing to you. I’ve thought often about adding your blog and Dan Martin’s to my links, but never “got around to it”; so thanks for this nudge. You don’t need to feel any obligation to reciprocate, as I know very well that I’m too “far out”. I’m Unitarian (with a strong leaning toward Islam), Universalist, and very Mystical (perhaps “Sufi” from an Islamic perspective). However, I find myself with a leaning toward “Eastern Religions” also – Buddhism and Hinduism for instance – particularly as my beliefs embrace reincarnation and karma. Generally just a ‘confused’ Heinz 57 mixture, one might say. 😆

    In case you’re interested, though, my blog deals largely with religion and politics/U.S. Constitution. I’ve posted a few articles on “Global Warming” also. The link is and is called “Mystic444’s Blog”.

    I don’t do Facebook or Twitter – in fact, I don’t even really understand what Twitter is! 😀

    I can’t remember how I originally came across your blog, but I believe the first post I saw was either one of your “Olivet Discourse” articles, or one asking: if there was anything about the Bible you could change, what would it be? Since I am “full Preterist” in my interpretation of “Second Coming” prophecies in the Bible, I found your partial Preterism very interesting. Your view of the Olivet Discourse, if I remember correctly, was right in line with my viewpoint.

    God bless you always.

  • Iambingle 
    We believe the content of the Gospel is perfect, John 12:32, but its apparent lots of people aren’t being attracted through traditional church environments, sadly we see facts to the contrary,   As believers who love His Body of believers and non-believers we have a spiritual mandate to listen and adopt Mark 1:1-3 to new contexts when established methods aren’t accomplishing the mission; its time we move forward.

    Kurt: On the justification for the American revolution–you are dead wrong. ..! But that is your right–for which many Americans have paid with their precious blood…! I seem to recall that the children of Israel paid for the promised land with their blood–as well as the blood of the Philistines they slaughtered. They claimed it was the commandment of God. So also did the American patriots. Go on-line and read about the vision experienced by George Washington at Valley Forge. Read it–don’t just shrug it off…! Direct revelation is reality–and it continues today…!
