A Hundred Posts, A Thousand Comments

I’d say that Exploring Our Matrix is off to a pretty good start here at its new location on the Patheos site. Today it reached a hundred posts and exceeded a thousand comments.

While I think that this suggests that all is well, milestones like this provide a good opportunity for reflection and feedback.

So if you have any thoughts on what you like about Exploring Our Matrix as you’ve come to know and love it, what you could do with less of, or what you would like more of, please leave a comment and let me know!

    @James, Yes, I have a comment. I understand that your specific field is literature, and that’s why a lot of posts deal with historical criticism and interpretation. I would like to see some posts that deal with textual criticism, paleography, Septuagint studies, nomina sacra, dead sea scrolls and so on. What do you think?

    Some of those might best be accomplished by guest posts by scholars who work primarily in some of those fields (e.g. DSS and LXX studies) to an extent far beyond what I myself do…

    @James, That is one way to go, do you ever have guest posts? But what I actually had in mind was not necessarily a write up from you yourself, but that you might point to or quote an article from someplace else that talks about a new manuscript find or new theory proposed for the nomina sacra for example. Then let the discussion ensue, provided that this was a popular thing for your readers. Just a thought.

    Certainly I’ll try to post new and interesting things that are in any way related to Biblical studies. Do you know Jim Davila’s Paleojudaica? He tends to round up the news related to Biblical studies pretty effectively.

    Perhaps you can share a bit of your work in NT Christology or Burial stuff? Also I thought the posts you wrote on memory and orality were very interesting.

    @496dc4799dc4a8fdc5ecdfba70dbb89c:disqus , just try and stop me from blogging about those topics! :-)

    @Sabio:disqus , I did! :-)   I’m not sure whether counting them “counts” or not, but it has taken longer than expected to get the blog’s archives moved over here, and so in particular because of that, I wanted to share some older posts. Too much, huh?
