Great! Thank you. It looks like he has a number of great links to other blogs as well.

Pious Fabrications by US soldier and convert from Catholicism, David P. Withun. I found it a very useful exposition of the Orthodox faith. Some of the Catholic commentators complain that his conditions for an Ortho-Catholic reunion are too harsh.

I'll 3rd Fr. Stephen's blog.

But I go to a lot of Orthodox blogs and they're all quite different.  Do you want theology only?

I'm afraid I'm mostly familiar with Ad Orientem, Ochlophobist, and ROCOR Unity, although for various reasons there's less content on them of late.

Fr. Hierodeacon Samuel's (I think that is his name) blog is, in my opinion the best out there. The problem is that he is no longer posting because of ill health (so keep him in your prayers) but I would highly recommend going through the archives and reading older stuff he has posted. He has posted many good homilies and other spiritual writings which he has translated. My Spiritual Father told me that people should read his blog for spiritual benefit. http://ishmaelite.blogspot.com/

I loved reading his blog when it was active.  I've wondered about him.  Does anyone know how his health is?  His blog has been quiet for some time.

I've started a new blogsite:

http://adayinthelifeoftheyouthdirector.blogspot.com/

A melting pot of my own random thoughts, stories, experiences, and quotes from smarter people than myself. The posts are intended to be light-hearted and humorous; just something to enjoy while explaining "A Day in the Life of the Youth Director."

For anyone interested, please enjoy!

Although I don't follow many individual blogs- which maybe I could start to do- I try to keep up with diocesan things, so I check goarch.org from time to time. The Church of Greece site is also good. Fabulous music!

Also, Bad Vestments is a good blog. Because it has, well, bad vestments. Wink

Yes, these are great.

The Ochlophobist shut down a while ago.

Not an Orthodox guy, but the badvestments blog is great.
