Because Easter is all about resurrection, right?
Today is Easter. Today is the day Christians around the world celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It seems only appropriate that I would participate in a resurrection of another sort.
Those who have known me for a significant length of time would know that there was a time when I blogged, a lot. Those who have known me longer than that know that writing has been a significant part of my life since at least Middle School. That hasn’t been the case, recently, however. It’s long past time for me to change that.
So here I am, writing again. I’ll be writing a lot more in the future, too. For now, I’ll do it here, on Medium. I’ll probably end up moving to my own site, eventually (more on that in the future).
Why are you writing again?
Fair question. For a long time, I did’t feel as if I had much to add to the writing already being done. Let’s be honest — there is a ton of writing out there, on every subject imaginable, and social media has been it easily accessible to anyone. I started blogging in 2006, and the landscape of internet content has changed immensely since then.
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all of that noise. It’s easy to let your own voice get drowned out, even when you believe your voice worthy of being heard.
Then there’s the fact that I’m not a reactionary person. I don’t feel a compelling need to add my hot take to the endless stream of unsolicited opinion. I’ll answer when asked, and I’ll speak when I’m ready.
Now, I’m ready.
What will you write about?
Frankly, I’ll write about whatever I want. :-)
Broadly speaking, I can guarantee I’ll be sharing thoughts about my Christian faith, and how it intersects with my life, work, and leisure. I’ll probably weave some sports in there, too (soccer!).
Right now, I’m writing because I need to, and because I hope my insights and experiences will be helpful to others, like you.
I can’t make any promises, but if you think you’d like to stick around and see how things go, please do.
This should be interesting. . .
