I will be redesigning the site over the next few days. Though I’m a programmer, I don’t have much experience with with CSS or HTML and this site has been like a new toy. I like toys — I like to tinker with them and see what I can make them do. Sometimes I like to bend toys and sometimes I like to break them. I now know what I don’t like and the site will begin to look more like something that I do like. Simplicity and restraint are the new keywords.
Simplicity and restraint are also the new keywords for the site’s contents. I work long hours at the office, have few breaks, and I simply cannot compete with good sites like Instapundit or Little Green Footballs for breaking news or instant analysis. The original purpose of this site was to discuss current events from a Christian perspective and to chronicle the daily Christian life. I now want to remake this site to reflect my original purpose.
If people like this site, they will come, and I do not need to concern myself over whether I have 10, 20, or 100 visitors on a particular day. It is my hope that my Christian musings will form the basis for a book in 18 months or so. I need to get back to thinking of this site as a repository for serious writing rather than as a platform for becoming the next Glenn Reynolds. God knows what he wants for this site and I have to listen to his voice, not my ambitions.
