Good news! Facebook has restored links to The Master’s Table FB page and my personal profile. I was incredibly frustrated but honestly didn’t figure there was anything I could do. Someone, somewhere, looked at the issue again and determined this WordPress blog was not malicious and that I wasn’t spamming my friends. Praise the Lord and thank you Facebook Help team!
Thank you everyone for your patience while I fumed. I will try to make it worth everyone’s while by posting some God honoring, Christ centered blog posts over the weekend.
UPDATE: This issue has been resolved.
So my issues with Facebook continue unresolved but there is a twist. Back when I first signed up with Facebook, late in 2008, there was an input field for a website. Those links still appear on the sidebar, or the about section, of my profile. I tried The Master’s Table link, which is displayed, only to receive an error message about that link violating FB’s community standards. But the link to my original URL, clarkbunch.wordpress.com, still works. Why I have two blogs is a long story but the fact that I can link to one but not the other makes it that much more interesting.
Update: Issued resolved, links have been restored.
I’m having a bit of a tiff with Facebook. It’s probably not enough to make me give it up for good but at this time I am unable to post links to this blog. I always link new blogs on the Mater’s Table Facebook page and occasionally, though not very often, link from my personal Facebook profile. I was hoping to spread a little Happy Monday cheer but Facebook rejected the post and claimed it violated their community standards on spam. They also removed all links to this blog from the Master’s Table FB page. That page has 178 followers. It was created for several reasons but perhaps the biggest thing at the time was so that I could post links each time a new blog post was up without constantly irritating my Facebook friends. Every new blog post was linked from the FB page and like I say only occasionally from my own profile. Currently the only links on the Master’s Table FB page are to Paul Wilkinson’s Wednesday Connect posts. Continue reading
That’s Mom and I at a Braves game in 2013. This will be the Braves last season at Turner Field, so we may try to get in one more this summer. Continue reading
Yesterday I updated the blogroll. That’s a list of blogs that I read and you might enjoy as well. Beneath the blogroll is another list of links. Rather than blogs those are resources useful for Bible study, research and passage look-up. Some of those sites I use on a regular basis, others “as needed.”
Speaking of websites I use, check out the new look of Our Daily Bread. The interactive calendar feature makes finding a particular devotion easier than before, and you can now login and post comments.
Managing a healthy blogroll is something of a lost art. Now that blogging has integrated with social media I sometimes question the value of a good blogroll myself. It used to be that having a good list of blogs and websites others could click to, and being linked to from the blogrolls of others, increased your chances of being viewed and considered a useful destination.

Paul Wilkinson is the author of Thinking Out Loud and Christianity 201. You’ve met him here before and from time to time I pop in on either of his blogs. This is just a friendly reminder to check in at least weekly on the Wednesday Link List, even when I don’t mention or link to it.
