A suggestion: YABCB

I would like to suggest Yet Another Big, Christian Blogroll — YABCB ™

When I began to blog, I felt in many ways like an outcast. One of the reasons for entertaining this silly thought was the fact that I am both a Christian and a GNU/Linux user. You may find bloggers (and people) of these two varieties with little difficulty, but finding people who are both… well, that would be quite interesting.

And, in true 1 Kings 19:18 epiphanic-like fashion, I didn’t realize that there were so many of us. I’m humbled and honored to have fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord who also happen to like their free OS. I think this is extremely important, because GNU/Linux and the Free Software movement is, in my opinion, the best way to use computers in a Christian spirit.

My intention was to blogroll every single Christian GNU/Linux blogger… but now I realize that it is a very difficult task for a single person. Therefore I have an idea: let’s start an Alliance of Christian Users of Free Software and make a blogroll of this. In this way, we can keep track of everyone, and we would benefit from the sharing of our interests. It would be something very similar to what CS-FSLUG is for email.

Problem is, I don’t have the time for that enterprise, and I doubt I have all the technical acumen for it. So, if any of my fellow Christian GNU/Linux (or Free Software) users are there, what do you think of it?


  1. We can only offer what we have in our hands. I would be willing to help admin such an enterprise, play moderator, or something similar. I lack the resources to host anything, and don’t know enough about site admin to run the thing. At the very least I would like to be a member, if FreeBSD users are acceptable.

  2. I’ve thought about this for a long time — I’ve always wanted to write a blogging aggregator for CS-FSLUG’s members that would do essentially that. *sigh*

    Count me in if someone picks up the ball. 🙂
