It was been far too long since I’ve had a new King for a Week around here. King for a Week is turning into King for a Month or more. Somehow it just seems to skip my mind. But today, because of the insistence of some friends and their reminders that I really do need to update this feature, I’m nominating a new King for a Week. If you’re new to these parts you should know that King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers…or sometimes just because I really like them. It is simply a way of introducing my readers to blogs that they may also find interesting and edifying. Every now and again I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making the readers of this blog aware of other good sites.
The new King for a Week is Take Your Vitamin Z, a blog owned and operated by Zach Nielsen. The blog is something like a Jr. version of Justin Taylor’s Between Two Worlds, but with a greater range or variety in the articles. Zach scours the Internet and finds all kinds of interesting articles to point to. They range from theology to music, from comedy to consumerism. I try to check his headlines each morning before I post A La Carte as I often glean some interesting news from his blog. He has a ridiculous man-crush on John Mayer, but if you can see past that, I’m sure you’ll come to enjoy his blog as I have.
In the coming days (and/or weeks) you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to look around.
