I love Punk monkeys things I learnt in 2002'. Very funny.

Thanks to Blogs4God for the vote of confidence in the bloggies!

Thanks Rachel

Thanks Rachel for the great little 'Living Room' Logo that I've just added to the side bar. Makes our little community all the more inviting. Pull up a couch or bean bag people - lets live life together.

Mark and I tweaked Stinky again - added the blog teams photos.

Also added a few to this site for our viewing pleasure! The only frustration of the process is that blogger can be so slow sometimes when you're changing your settings - makes it a tad hard to adjust things - oh well, one shouldn't complain about a service when one doesn't pay for a service.

Spent some time giving Stinky a fresh look with Mark this morning.

Also changed counter for both sights as the old one was slowing page loading down terribly. Sorry for those who experienced delays or not being able to log on at all. Hopefully things will be better now.

I've lost my archives and the posts in my 'Entries that got attention' section seem to be dead. Anyone got any ideas about where they may have gone?

Strange bloggin times

18 December, 2002 10:33 PM

21 days ago I decided to catalogue (through blogging) the story of 'Living Room' as it was born. I decided to do so for my own sanity (I needed a place to think outloud) and I wanted a place online to send prospective members for some of my latest thinking.

I'd not really seen any blogs before and knew nothing about how or why people kept them. None the less I began to write my thoughts in the hope that as I did something would emerge that might be of some use in our new venture. Little was I to know the strange things that would happen in the days that followed.

Since that time many strange and wonderful emails have filtered into my humble inbox. I've been amazed by the variety of people that I've 'met' (virtually), the conversations that I'm engaging in and the things that I'm learning. I've got newfound mates from most states in Australia, from New Zealand, Germany, Singapore, the US, Canada and more. Many of them call themselves 'bloggers', some seem a little offended by the title - but 'commentate' none the less. Some seem learned they use words I have to look up and talk of books in the pile of unread cutting edge material that grows next to my bed, some are hilariously funny - quite happy to take the mickey out on themselves and each other, others are asking questions or for my opinion (do I come accross as someone who has a clue?? If so - how? I wish my bible college lecturers thought so!) and others seem kind of like me - average punters who just want to say hi, to connect and to say that they too are thinking along similar lines. There seems to be such a growing number of us who are realising that the mainline church of today just isn't cutting it, who want to make a difference and who are searching for new and meaningful ways to connect the person and message of Jesus with the cultures we find ourselves in.

I'm not sure why people are here - reading my inadequate words - I don't feel I've done enough, know enough or am the kind of guy people would log onto to read the words of.... In fact some days I feel quite the opposite, a broken and uninspiring type....

All I can say is thankyou for the kind words - thanks for the generous welcome to the 'community' that you (we?) bloggers seem to have. I'm honored by the acceptance, the encouragement and especially for those of you who've gone out of your way to say hi and who seem to want to be a mate. Lets keep talking and bouncing ideas around - and lets keep each other honest too, keep each other from just talking about it and inspire one another to 'do it'.

Thanks to Richard and Andrew for your links and generous kind words. Your sites are on my daily visit list too! (Note to self - get some of those orange glasses - I think they'd match my slightly orange hair well)

Just tweaked my template and learnt some new html code in the process. I'm not expert as anyone will be able to tell, however thought it was worth making things a little fresher. Inspiration for the colours came from our wedding invitations which seems to be a big hit with our friends.

Anyone with any web design clues - feel free to comment/suggest/critique

About This Site

14 December, 2002 9:26 PM

Is this your first time to this site? If so welcome to the LivingRoom. Pull up a bean bag, grab a coffee and stay a while.

My name is Darren Rowse. I live in Melbourne Australia. If you want to know more about me click here.

What is this Website?

You are currently reading a blog. In short a blog is an online journal or diary. They are usually written by one person and are updated pretty regularly. Blogs are usually written on a particular topic - there are blogs on virtually any topic you can think of. From photography, to spirituality, to recipes, to personal diaries to hobbies.

There are literally millions of blogs in existence at the moment. If you want more info on blogging and how to start a blog read this article or check out my own Blog Tips.

My blog 'LivingRoom' is a pretty general one that covers all kinds of topics from Spirituality, Technology, Culture, Emerging Church through to Blogging, Movies and Australiana.

How do I read it?

You are currently deep in the middle of my blog on an individual entry page. It is a simple entry on one topic only. To get to the main part of my page click on the Home link at the topic of this page to go to the front page. Most people surf into the front page which contains the most recent updates. At the top of that page is the last thing I wrote and under that are entries from the last week.

Each blog entry is followed by some text that looks like this - 'Have your say? >> Comments (4)'. This is an invitation for you to interact with what I've just written. I read every comment that you post. The number in brackets is how many people have already made comments. Click on the link and you'll be taken to a new window where you can make a comment. You do not have to leave a name, email or web address to leave a comment.

The front page only has the last 7 days entries on it. I have been doing this since November 2002 so there is a lot more material than what you see on the front page. To view older material there are a few options.

At the top of every page is a number of links. Click on the Archives link and you will be taken to a page listing every entry since the beginning of this blog. They are arranged in catagories.

If you are searching for something in particular there is a search option in the side bar on the front page that allows you to search for words or phrases.

At the end of each entry is a reference to a Category that they entry belongs to. If you click on this it will lead you to the last 30 entries from within the same category.

If you have any question please or would like to know more about me or this blogging thing please feel free to leave a comment below or shoot me an email.

Surprisingly someone has already stumbled

29 November, 2002 9:43 AM

Surprisingly someone has already stumbled upon my blog - I don't know how but received an email today from Grant in Texas asking about The Living Room concept. I guess I havn't really painted a picture of what is happening with it. Over the next few days I hope to be able to post some of the Proposal that I put to BUV. They are not descriptions of the way it will be - rather some starting points, ideas and possibilities.
