« we are ready for grace | Main | theology brewed in an african pot »



Your journey is very similar to mine and I am also very glad to still have a blog. Pretty dusty, a place for the last few years where I have placed slightly longer pieces but like you I hope to be more active there, while missing the comment community that made it feel more social


We love to see it!

I enjoy reading your blogs.
As I'm on Facebook anyway because of the running club, I tend to follow Facebook profiles and pages as opposed to signing up to lots of emails. I've given up posting much on Facebook because:
- it noticed that I was doing a lot of posting (for different organisations);
- made me sign up to a security protocol;
- which promptly decided that I was doing too much posting;
- deleted most of my posts in the summer of 2021 as spam; and
- kept locking me out of Facebook on the basis that my account might have been hacked.

ah the golden days of blogging?!… thanks for your dogged faithfulness to a platform
and a certain kind of conversation…


Thanks for checking in - comments! Joy! Good to hear from you all.

This has been really interesting to read for me, as I've been mulling about starting a blog for ages, and been strongly encouraged to in the last month by separate people. This has been another push to do it!
