If you ever said to yourself “Self, I wonder what that RandomlyChad sounds like, you know, in real life.”

Well, wonder more:

YouTube Video

For those that have been asking (you know who you are), that was my first ever vlog! I know it’s not an “accent” piece, per se–but it was fun. And yes, I know the front-facing camera on the iPhone pretty much sucks. Deal with it. 😉

Do you have any questions for me, anything you’d like to know, or any other voices you’d like to hear? Let me, and maybe there’ll be a sequel someday.

Peace out, and God bless,


Good afternoon! Welcome again to the new (I was going to say improved, but it’s a work in progress) Internet home of RandomlyChad.

Today being Wednesday, it’s time for another edition of Random Wednesday Haterade. Today’s victim is none other than Matt Cannon, who I’m sure you know as the @seekingpastor.

What’s he seeking? No one really knows for sure. 😉 Maybe, like Bono, he still hasn’t found what he’s looking for. 😉 But I digress.

You came here expecting some “hate,” and intend to give it to you. Without further ado, here are the six reasons I “hate” @seekingpastor:

Good morning, America! I’m so glad to live in you. I have much, and much to be thankful for this 4th of July. And I am. Very thankful that I have the freedom to stay up all hours of the night working on this blog (it moved, hope you noticed), and the freedom to go right back to bed. It’s a holiday (here in a America), which means I don’t gotta go to work today. And I’m very thankful for that!

So without further ado, goodnight, America! I’m going back to bed. Thanks for giving me the freedom to sleep in today. I’ll catch up with you later at the buffet.

Regular posting will resume Monday.

Today has been a lazy, hang-out-with-the-family kind of day. It’s been restful, relaxing, rewarding to enjoy some repose together.

As I reflect back upon the previous week, here are some posts that brought a measure of rest to my soul:

Hands down the funniest reflection on Genesis (do “funny” and “Genesis” normally come together in your mind? Nevertheless…) I’ve ever read was Ben Emerson’s take on Genesis 49: Famous Last Tweets. Imagine Jacob tweeting his last words to his numerous, numerous spawn, and you’ll just scratch the surface of just how good this post is.

The best blogging advice of the week I read was Jeff Goins’s piece on The Overlooked Secret to Influencing People. His secret sauce? Just ask. That’s it. As easy, and as hard, as that.

The best series on writing goes to author Rachel Held Evans, who spent a whole week dishing on the trade, and craft, of writing.

Best series on parenting goes to Adam McHugh, who turned his blog over to guest posts by introverted parents (of which I was honored to be one).

The post I had the most fun writing this week was Speed Bumps on the ‘Roamins’ Road.

What did you read, or write, this past week that moved, touched, or refreshed you?
