Echoes in the Masonary

When I started this blog… well, when I tried to start this blog last fall, it was my intention to write a little bit about the things that I was doing during my year as Master of Friendship Lodge in Southington, Connecticut. After a number of false starts, I finally got this off the ground, and heading in what I think is a good direction. I’ve decided that I want to post original content, that is, my own thoughts and ramblings. There are scads of great Masonic resources out in cyberspace, and I certainly don’t need to duplicate them, nor do I have the time or resources to research and publish the way that some of the more prolific authors do.

I’ve noticed that as I move from Usenet to the blogosphere, my blogroll – the list of other Masonic blogs that I read and respond to on a regular basis – is gradually increasing. One of the interesting things about blogging is that when someone on your blogroll “discovers” a new site, blog, or item of interest, it’s only a matter of time before you’re checking it out yourself… and quite possibly adding it to your own list.

That said, I thought it was a wonderful coincidence when Masonic pundit Tim Bryce published this essay for Masters halfway through their year in the East, nicely coinciding with my own labored ruminations. Tim’s article is less wordy and more useful than mine, and I urge both Masters and upcoming Wardens to check it out.

    It’s amazing how many of us out here there are now. I remember when I first started posting, it was pretty desolate. It’s very good to be in such company now.

    Keep up the good work.

    The medium changes – back in the old, old days the techie Masons used Compuserve, then they moved to Usenet when the internet started to open up. Web pages abound, but they’re static, and most of us like the interactive avenues.

    There is a lot of activity on the various Yahoo and MSN groups, and I’ve discovered a few good web forums. The forums, though, tned to lend themselves to more in-depth discussion, whereas blogging tends to be more of quick, “chatter” type of communication.

    And of course, those of us with bigger egos get to post what we want without worry that a moderator will tell us to cool off 😉
