This is something I have been putting off for sometime, but with the email last week informing me that I have only 30 days left for my dotMac membership I need to make a change. I don’t want to pay the £70 to renew, and using WordPress for the Advent Blog, I enjoyed the format and features much more than iWeb. I don’t have to do a near overhaul to make simple changes (I have meant to add the blogs of folk from the UK Bloggers Meeting – octomusings, Turbulent Cleric, and connexions – but I didn’t want to do the work on iWeb) and I haven’t figured out how to add tags. I also find the format easier on WordPress than Blogger. I have discussed making a change since the said Meeting in January and thought Lent is as good a time as any. So here I am.
I don’t foresee too many changes in the format, though now reading many more blogs and receiving questions from Americans on British issues and from British people on American issues (in particular, the presidential race). Being inspired by Richard Hall and Paul Martin, I want to comment on those things. My sister has taken an active interest in American politics, which I think is fantastic. She has some insightful thoughts that I hope she will let me post here. Inspired by Pam, I want to comment more on theology. And following Dave, I hope to speak on church life and family with the balance he provides (I don’t share is his interest for cycling!). For those who read my blog for Savannah stories, there will be those, too.
My old blog from Blogger will remain, but I haven’t figured out what to do with the post from iWeb/dotmac. I do apologise to those who have been following me for 2 1/2 years and my switching blogs. This should be the last!
