One of the highlights for me of the recent T4G conference was the 2012 Band of Bloggers meeting that was held on the campus of Southern Seminary. Owen Strachan did a fantastic job leading a panel discussion about the state of blogging among the “Young, Restless, and Reformed.” Panelists include Justin Taylor, Collin Hansen, Tim Challies, and Timmy Brister. I really benefitted from this conversation. If you are a blogger, you likely will too.

Hi Denny — what would the highlights of this panel discussion be for you?
I thought Colin Hansen’s knowledge of trends in print vs. digital media were very insightful. He has his finger on the waning pulse of major print media, and I learned a lot from that. I think Tim Challies is very knowledgeable in this area as well.
The guy I came with (who is not a blogger) was bored by these topics. To me, they were fascinating. So there’s a lot of this that I think would mainly be of interest only to bloggers.
What did you think about it?
How kind of you to ask! I’m actually blogging it for the next three weeks.
Three weeks?! Wow! They only talked for an hour.
