Today in 1993 the first website went online. Also, today in 2005 I (officially) started blogging.
I started out on Blogger, moved to WordPress and now I manage four or five different blogs on a regular basis.
Surprisingly my first post was a little future telling:
So I gave in. I got myself a blog. I’ve been fighting this for some time, and I don’t really know why. Maybe it was because I hate fads — even though I love being on the cutting edge of everything. Is it just me or is that really ironic?
And despite what it may look like, this is actually my first posting on this blog. All the earlier entries are simply postings of my old columns that people seem to want to continue to read.
Anyways, I’ll start posting my weekly columns/random thoughts and maybe a podcast in the future.
I’m very intriguied by the whole podcast idea. If you haven’t heard anything about it, check out podcast.net to find a listing of what’s currently out there. I’m sure I’ll jump on that bandwagon as soon as I can find enough content to post a weekly show (sounds like my dream of writing a book). There’s so much I want to do — and so little time and content.
Well, so there you have it. I’m live in the blog world.

As my time, schedules and interests evolve so does publishing online.
There’s no telling what the next eight years will be bring (or even 80) but I’m looking forward to it.
Thanks for joining me on the journey.
PS: I’ve had the privilege of being on Power Talk several times in the last few months. Always enjoy getting the opportunity.
This week we talked with Steve Knight and Phil Shepherd about issues facing the Church and how we can regain the trust of those outside the walls of the church.
