Changing Times . . . and Shorter Posts

If you have been following this blog, you may have noticed that the posting rate has been slowing down. Here's why: I have a new job with a longer commute and different scheduling requirements. I like the job quite a lot, but it allows me less personal time for activities like blogging. I guess if I have to choose between blogging and feeding my family, I'll always choose the latter.

I want to continue to write God-honoring content on THEOparadox, so I'm going to try to shift away from the dense, deeply researched articles I've been writing and go for brevity, profundity and perhaps a little wit. We'll see how well that works. There are still some longer articles in the queue that might show up from time to time as well.

Most of the new posts will be written on my phone, and I'll try to add original photographs as a bonus for those of you who continue to read. I may also be a little slower in responding to comments, but will do my best to respond within a day or two when appropriate. Interaction with readers has been one of my favorite aspects of blogging. Don't hesitate to leave a response, even if it's a challenge to what has been written in a post. Iron sharpens iron!

A hearty thanks goes out to all who have read, followed and commented on this blog. I hope you will enjoy the changes.

The picture is a sunrise on the St. Johns River, taken one block from where I now work. Our God has created such magnificent things! But none of them are as glorious as Himself.


  1. "Most of the new posts will be written on my phone..."

    This is your new calling.

    Best to you and your family. We'll be waiting for your next post.

  2. Eddie,

    Ha! My new "calling" :)

    Thanks for the encouragement.


  3. Wow, Derek, I'm with you on daily routine has changed such that the more terse and (hopefully) pithy posts are becoming the rule. I've always enjoyed your writing, and I'm looking forward to what comes next!

  4. Blaine,

    You have mastered the art of the short yet deep post. I've never been disappointed with a visit to your site. Thanks for the kind words.


  5. No no, let the family starve. Send the kids out to work in a mine or something. Sheesh, dont go away. We need your balance.

    all said with affectionate jesting

  6. David,

    Don't worry, I'm not going away. I'm just going to try to be more succinct. On the other hand, in a couple of weeks I'll be posting a very long excerpt from your recent exchange with Terry Tiessen. That was great stuff and I want to have it documented here on THEOparadox for posterity.
