Hi everyone,

I am planning on updating the home/front page of oc.net after all these years...started doing it in 2010, and never finished, but I have some moderate adjustments I am mulling over that wouldn't be too time intensive.

At any rate, I am planning on adding some feeds of popular Orthodox blogs similar to alltop.com (but not overkill; maybe the "top 5."

Would users please recommend the Orthodox blogs that are currently their favorite?

I am aware there are plenty of previous threads on the topic of blog recommendations, but blogs go inactive, new ones come, etc. so I want to get the latest recommendations.

The top 5-10 I will aggregate on the front page. This helps those blogs get more traffic, and helps us with search engines and also provides a convenience to our users here. Thank you.

In Christ,
Anastasios

That would be cool if OC.net has a blog depicting pictures and stories

Definitely Mystagogy by John Sanidopoulos. That's really the only one I follow on a regular basis. Byzantine TX isn't bad either.

In Christ,

How about Robert Araraki's blog? I've found it very useful.

Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy from Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick

His Roads from Emmaus is also worth mentioning. As is Fr. Joseph Huneycutt's Orthodixie.

Robin Phillips's blog is one of several I used to read a lot. The archive of his old posts is here, and he currently blogs here (with SALVO magazine). He was a Calvinist some time ago, but wrote quite a few articles questioning the underpinnings of Calvinism, and eventually he became Orthodox sometime in 2013 (I think). He talks a lot about social and cultural issues.

Does this qualify as a blog?

http://theorthodoxchurch.info/blog/news/

If so, it's a must.  It has all the latest news on Orthodox everywhere.

Hey, that's my priest! I love his blog. I started reading it a long time ago, before I started attending his parish. Tongue Before I even lived in this state, in fact.

Hmm, well what do you know... I didn't realize oc.net had a front page. I've only ever accessed the forum here.  Apparently there is also a dictionary that is 403 Forbidden and some articles.  Good to know.

Yeah, that priest does sound familiar... Now if only I could remember what he looked like since it's been so long. Wink

I'm starting to think it's all just a likely story, Nephi. Tongue

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!

As far as the dictionary being 403 forbidden, it's because of hackers putting spam in. Someday, I would like to restart it...we'll see.
