Between being busy with grad school, becoming a father, and spending a lot of time on Twitter, I didn’t have much time to keep this venerable old blog going. To be honest, though, I didn’t have much desire to either. I’m sure I’ll come back here some day, but I felt the need to start with a clean slate. So…
You can now find me blogging, sans pseudonym, at
Strike the Root! 🙂
Life’s been busy, and it’s only going to get more so. I’m up to my eyeballs in graduate research and my first child is due August 25. Consequently, I’ve backed off blogging a bit. I haven’t stopped, nor do I intend to. However, my posting frequency has been too low to really sustain an active readership. To make up for this I’ve been syndicating content (with permission, of course). I intend to continue doing so, but I find myself in need of original content. A recent comment has made me keenly aware that Catholic content is sorely lacking. When Shaun Pierce got too busy to maintain Powerblog! by himself, he put out a call for co-bloggers and found able help in Jim Powers. So I am following suit.
Are there any devout Catholics who’ve thought about blogging or established Catholic bloggers looking for a bigger soap box out there? If so, drop me a line. It’s a non-paying gig, and all applicants will be vetted and go through a trial period if accepted. I can’t just let anyone write here, ya know. 😉
I’ve been told umpteen times that my blog loads too slowly. To remedy this, I’ll be playing around with different themes for a while. As that happens, functionality may come and go, but the content will always be there (barring a destructive database goof).
Yours truly made a database blunder and had to recreate two posts as a result. Apologies to the two commenters on Jerry’s post.
