Well, after commenting on several other blogs during the past year, I've finally created my own blog. The real reason I created it was so I could post comments on other blogs that require a Blogger account. I don't know how regularly I'll post on here (creative writing is not my strength), but as I become more disciplined I will probably post more regularly, and maybe I'll post something that somebody else might be interested in reading.

You may be wondering why I titled this blog "The View from the Hill." There are two reasons, I suppose:

  1. I am a graduate of Western Kentucky University, home of the Hilltoppers! And yes, the name accurately describes the campus (especially Cherry Hall, where most of my classes as a history major were).
  2. Climbing a hill can be a metaphor for going through life. Hopefully as I progress through my life I will continue to grow closer to God and become more like Christ.

So if anyone is actually reading this, post a comment to let me know. The more comments I have, the more likely it will be that I will try to make other, more substantive, posts.

World, meet Tim Sweatman. Good to see your blog Tim. Hope you and your wife are well.

Welcome to the world of bloggers! It's addicting!! :) But it's a great way to dialoge with people about things you care about and to be able to voice your thoughts and concerns. I think you'll enjoy it and find it a good resource for your ministry as well.

It's great to see that some of the people whose blogs I like have stopped by. Right now I'm still trying to figure out the way I'm going to approach this blog. For the time being I'll probably read and comment more on other blogs, but as I think of interesting things (hopefully) to post about here, I'll do so.

Well, Tim, I finally got down to your first post. You said, "(creative writing is not my strength), but as I become more disciplined I will probably post more regularly..." Writing is a good discipline and I recommend it. But as ashlee says, blogging, internet discussions boards, etc. can be addictive - and that really bites into the discipline!

Best wishes on your blogging.
