When I started this blog just over six months ago I had no idea what to expect. Unlike most areas of my life, there was not a clear direction or goals. I was not convinced that the internet needed yet another blog, but at the same time I needed an outlet for my musings on faith, science, reason, Ignatian Spirituality and Teilhard de Chardin that was not being met in family or church circles. So I took the plunge into the blogosphere.
I had the same trepidation that many first-time bloggers do; that my thoughts would disappear into the great internet void and no one would read them. I was very pleasantly surprised when I first started getting some hits and good comments. Eventually, I found other fascinating blogs (please check out the links on the right side of this page!), traffic picked up and I was getting into a routine. I had a fantastic time “meeting” other bloggers and learning other perspectives.
My initial goal was to follow my inspiration and post something at least six times a week for the first year. Alas, the reality of a demanding job, fatherhood and other commitments starting taking its toll. In part, due to the advice of a couple of my blogging friends, I am going to try to set aside some more time for myself (thank you Julie and Lynda!). As a result, while I am going to continue blogging, it may be closer to two to four posts a week rather than six. Hopefully there will be improved quality to make up for the lower quantity 🙂
