How Pondering "Bloggernacle" Made Me a Believer

As many of you probably know, the Bloggernacle or Bloggernacle Choir is what many in the LDS blogging community call the Mormon portion of the blogosphere.

Over the past few days, I have been pondering why that became the go-to name for Mormon blogging and why it happened to stick. After all, members of the Bloggernacle are very creative, intelligent, skillful writers. Couldn’t we have done better?

Finally, I decided to see if, off the top of my head, I could pick a winner. I enlisted my friend and fellow writer Eric D. Snider to help me with the brainstorm session and here's what we got:

The Nursery
The Pearl of Great Blog
Journal of (Online) Discourses
Do As I’m Blogging
Blogohemla
General Blogference (with messages from the General Blogthorities)
Blogham City
The RameBlogtom
The Blog of Mormon(s): An Online Testament of Too Much Free Time
Governor Bloggs
Willie and Martin Blogger Company
The Blogtrin and Coveblogs
The enZine

As you can see, we could do much worse than calling our online community the Bloggernacle. I guess it just proves that Christopher "Grasshopper" Bradford was inspired. I now know the Bloggernacle is true.

How about you? Can you come up with any that rival these or Bloggernacle itself?
