Programming Notes

Okay. I think that my blog posts from this week need further explanation and clarification (and backpedaling).

My name is Jeff. I pastor a church in northeast Ohio. Shortly after I began that pastorate, I started this blog. It ended up being a way for me to process those early years of ministry, and to nurture a love of writing at the same time. Over the years, the blog has evolved and changed, from "adventures of a fresh-faced pastor" to emerging church fanboy to Serious Writer wannabe to...whatever it is now.

I began anonymous, although many family and friends were readers when I started. Now I have some church members who read and the blog is even listed on my church's website, so whatever. I figure what you see is what you get nowadays...I haven't changed really anything in response to that fact.

At times it feels like I'm speaking to an empty theatre, I won't lie about that. The big moment where everybody was writing and reading blogs has passed, it seems. It's been suggested that I land some guest-blogging gigs elsewhere. Perhaps I could invite some people to do the same here.

So am I staying? Sure, I'm staying.

Oh, and the "365 Albums" thing that I want to resurrect? I really had good intentions about that, but the pacing that I'd have to keep up with really is a bit insane. Don't get me wrong, I love music, but an album a day is too much. But I tell you what I will do...I'd like to take the spirit of that idea and apply it to something more manageable. So maybe I can covenant with those of you (if anyone) who loves the Pop Culture Roundups (haha, you're silly) to listen to no less than 3 new albums a week. That's doable. Totally doable. Much more doable than that other crazy thing.

So you're stuck with me, I guess. I can't not write. I hate quitting things.

Thanks, as always, for reading.
