This blog will be (mostly) inactive until June 1, 2013. Why? Read on…
I have struggled to find focus for this blog. I know I have not written new posts as frequently as I’d like, but a big reason for this is that I have never settled on a focus for this blog. Is this going to be a collected of far-ranging thoughts? Am I going to focus my content around ministry? Or philosophy? Or theology?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this problem since the year’s beginning. A goal for this year is to grow my readership. But all the advice I can find––and my own intuition––tells me that I need to find a focus for this blog before I spend considerable time each week writing new posts.
A few days ago, an obvious solution hit me, and I’ve celebrated it like it was a Nobel-Prize-winning idea: focus the blog on helping college students deal with the spiritual and intellectual challenges of college.
Why is this an obvious solution? Because I’m a campus minister, and my thoughts do not stray far from helping college students grow in their faith.
Time for Change
I need to redesign and refocus this site. So I am setting aside the next two months to do that. What do I plan on doing?
- Looking into a new design.
- Developing a new site layout and navigation.
- Reworking old and relevant posts around the new focus.
- Moving or removing old and irrelevant posts.
- Planning future series and posts.
- Possible rename the blog.
So expect to see a lot of changes on the blog over the next two months. But I will not be posting any new posts until June 1, 2013. I am going to develop new content and rework older content. (For this reason, many of my older posts will begin to disappear.) All the new and recycled material will begin appearing after June 1st.
What are the goal of the new site?
- Help college students mature in their faith.
- Help college students deal with the intellectual challenges to their faith (i.e. apologetics).
- Provide some reflections on college ministry (for other ministers).
- Provide some resources for parents of college students (or soon-to-be college students).
I hope that any regular readers I might have would continue to read the blog regularly. Even if you aren’t a college students, I think you’ll find the content helpful.
