My thanks to the wonderful folks at Starmometer, who recommended GannsDeen.com as one of its seven religious blogs to visit for Holy Week. Truth be told, I visit Starmometer relatively often to keep track of what’s happening in Philippine entertainment. Between that blog and PerezHilton.com, well, I get my daily fix of voyeuristic, none-of-my-business content. LOL

Considering I’ve tried to keep the new website relatively clean of preachy content, choosing instead to focus on blogging about Christian music and how God works in my life, I am honored to be part of that list of seven. It’s definitely not boring to be a Christian; best affiliation I’ve ever had, I tell ya. ;) As regards gospel music, well, to each his own. Personally, I love gospel music, but I’ve found God speaks to us using many genres; for instance, I remember having a particular epiphany while listening to to Sonic Youth’s I Am Hell from the Beavis and Butthead Do America soundtrack, and that sure as heck isn’t gospel music. LOL God can use a variety of mediums to speak to us; it’s up to us if we want to listen.
There are many great Filipino-Christian blogs out there, and you can find some of them in the sidebar to your right. For insightful, generally non-preachy content, try locals Tainted Song, RefineMe.org, and Roca Cruz (Kitchie Nadal’s manager); you may also find international blogs Journey Inside My Mind, Bene Diction Blogs On, and What in Tarnation fascinating reads.
Thank you again, Starmometer! :) Mabuhay kayo, at sana manalo ulit si Cheryl Burke!
