The Bonfire: A big giant (but far from complete) list o’ Christian women bloggers

The Bonfire: A big giant (but far from complete) list o’ Christian women bloggers September 30, 2012

Here’s my big giant list o’ links from the other day in a more convenient form.

This is not a list of the “top” Christian women bloggers, or the best, or the most popular. It’s just a list of those I’m aware of thus far.

Please let me know of any names I’m missing here and I’ll add them to the list and post the new, improved, updated and expanded Bonfire every little bit after collecting more names.

No Billboard-style ranking here. That would involve looking up stats and inventing some pseudo-quantitative, pseudo-objective formula, and that just seems like a lot of work that would only result in making it harder for anyone to find particular names in this list. This is an exhibition, not a competition, (so please … no wagering).

The name “Bonfire” here comes from Sarah Bessey:

So I am no longer standing beside your table, asking for a seat, working and serving and hoping to be noticed and then offered a seat or arguing for my right to a seat. I don’t care to sit here any more. I have no desire to be indoors, in your neat boxes. …

And someday, I’ll throw my arms around you when you break up that table to use it for kindling and toss it out the window to the outside. We’ll build a bonfire and we’ll dance around the old arguments together, laughing.

  • Clattering Bones

    I’d love to be on this list!

    http://www.clatteringbones.comAbout: “Clattering Bones is a queer Presbyterian and recent seminary graduate, trying to figure out how to help bridge the gaps between the queer world and the church world.  In this journey, she writes about the nuances of her experiences of race, gender identity, and sexuality as they get played out in her religious life.  Mostly, she wonders what it would be like if we allowed ourselves to see every person we meet as a child of God, and how we might live into the notion that our religious experience can make us more.”

  • Carol Kuniholm

    Thank you for noticing those of us trying to find room at the table – and for taking the time to look beyond the obvious.
    I’d love to see a similar list of “global” Christian bloggers. We need to hear from the voices harder to hear; they often have much to learn from. Here’s one I read regularly to get that list started:
    I do find myself wishing I’d started with a blog name that started with “A” rather than “W” But thank you!

  • adrianwarnock

    Did I miss any female blogger listed on this  other list who has say more than 1000 Twiter followers? If so I will add them to my list

  • Kimer Workman

    I have a blog and I’m Christian! I’m a preacher’s wife, second carer, it’s crazy!  Come for a visit!

  • Thanks for including me in this list. My humble blog gets lots of traffic and I never know why. Blog on! :)
