It’s tough, because you’ll read something great, and then immediately think why didn’t I write that.
Then you think how can I copy that, but in a way that no one catches on?
My blog reader is full of posts I’ve clicked the star icon on…and resisted the urge to plagiarize. If you’ve been in need of some really quality blogs (or your ego is a bit too big, like you’re the best blogger ever), then you need to check out these excerpts from blogging nirvana. (Yeah, I’m “easing” back into blogging by blatantly copying other peoples’ blogs. Get off my case.)
The best of the starred items in my reader from the last couple of weeks.

I could pretty well list everything Seth Godin writes, because I could literally put a star next to every blog post he publishes. It’s probably better if I just go to his blog instead. But this particular gem stood out. Do you catch the relevance to our Christian culture that seems sooo ready pander to the lowest common denominator?
Why the church looks like our waistlines: we’re overindulging on spiritual comfort food.
If you don’t read Desiring God because you have an allergic reaction to John Piper, then you’re missing out on lots of other great writers who contribute to his site.
Nicole as usual tells it like it is on Modern Reject. Somehow, I have to plagiarize this…
This guest post from Ben Emerson on Prodigal Magazine is one of my favorites on that site…including the posts I’ve written for them. How many of your invite friends over, without giving your bathroom at least a once-over? How many of you would let your friends come over and scrub your nasty toilet?
Love Zack’s perspective at The American Jesus as something of a counterpoint to God’s tolerance.
What gems and pearls of bloggy wisdom have you starred, bookmarked or blatantly plagiarized lately?
