Some people have wondered why they haven’t seen more posts from here lately so I thought I’d take a moment to separate the truth from the fiction.
No, I have not accepted a 7 figure sum to sell the site and move to a tropical paradise to sip on coconuts drinks by the beach while swinging in a hammock. If it was offered, I’d take it. Even for way less. I repeat: I’d accept waaay less. I could always start a new one!
No, I have not run out of things to write about. The truth is that I have over 20 post titles and subjects ready to explore. Besides, if you read at all on any kind of regular basis, you’ll never run out of things to write about.
Ok, the truth is that I’ve been insanely busy. I recently finished a big paper for school that took some time to write. I had a few seminars to present here and there. And I’m currently away at Camp Meeting (google it) for two weeks and don’t have access to wifi. I’m actually typing these words from my iPhone while laying back in my bed. See how much I love you!!
As soon as I get some good access and a few free minutes I’ll begin putting some more stuff out. Thanks for those that have asked. Sorry to report that the absence is not for any exciting reason.
I’m still waiting on the 7 figure buyout
I’ve been a fan of YouVersion ever since they came out.
What’s not to like? They offer online access to a huge amount of different Bible translations: 209 versions in 75 languages, to be exact. You can easily bookmark your reading and share it online via Facebook or Twitter. They have YouVersion apps for every conceivable device out there.
Here’s a nice blurb from the site in case you’re not too familiar with the background of the site and app:
YouVersion and the Bible App were created by a team at LifeChurch.tv in Edmond, Okla., to help increase access and engagement with the Bible. Featuring more than 100 versions and many languages, YouVersion was created to help people with busy, on-the-go lifestyles read the Bible at any time and in any place. Since its creation, YouVersion has remained in the top five downloaded apps in the reference category and is the No. 1 downloaded Bible on iTunes.
Two years ago they introduced some great Bible reading plans that were received to much fanfare. And finally, very recently, they release several new features that I’d like to highlight:
In the U.S we celebrate Thanksgiving today. It’s a day in which, amongst other things like eating, we give thanks.
There are no gifts that are given. There are not many cards that are promoted for this day. Flowers are not bought. I assume Hallmark and card makers hate this day because they can’t make money from it. It’s just family, friends, food, and thankfulness.
I just upgraded to Standard Theme 2 on Modern Ekklesia. While things may not look different at all on the outside of the blog, there’s some new functionality that has been added. And if you’re thinking of getting into blogging, here’s a few reasons why this is the perfect time to jump in.
1. Awesome support. This one is big for me. I’ve been blogging for almost two years now, but I still consider myself a newbie. Especially when it comes to blogging on a self-hosted WordPress blog, which is a little more technical. But there is a great group of guys that provide support for the Standard Theme. When I upgraded from v. 1, I experienced a little hiccup on my blog, which was due to user error. From the Support Forums, they patiently helped me figure out what was wrong. They do it very quickly and in a very professional manner.
2. Social media icons options. This will make your life much easier. For example, you can now change the size of your social media icons with a click. If you want them small, fine…if you want them larger, click, and you’re done.
