If a tree falls in the woods but no one is there to hear it, does it make any sound?  If you post something that is never seen by anyone, does it do any good?

I say this mostly in jest.  Realistically I knew that only a handful of people would ever visit my blog.  I tend to be fairly idealistic though and envisioned that I would have more and better posts, more participation, etc.  The reality is that I have spent little time at this, and what time I have spent has mainly resulted in several yet-to-be-published drafts.  And I am amazed at the quantity and the quality of LDS-authored blogs.  There are literally thousands of great blogs out there with very talented and insightful writers.

My main hope in starting a blog was to be able to exchange ideas and to learn from the perspective of others.  I have been surprised that a few have visited and commented here, and I hope they will continue to do so.  While I enjoy the writing process, I hope that eventually I will have more discussion-oriented posts and that more dialogue will occur.
