Block and Share

I’m grateful for the discussions that have been taking place in response to my post about advertisements and ad blocking. My priority is to have serious discussions and a good user experience. And so here’s my suggestion for how you can maintain that while also expressing your appreciation for my blogging: SHARE What makes the [Read More...]

Do What You Already Do, Publicly

Donna Yates recently offered this challenge to other academics, and I wanted to share it, since it gets at the heart of what it means to be an academic who blogs, or has a Twitter account, or who is otherwise active on social media: So, dear reader, I challenge you to evaluate your normal routine.

Corinthian Confession

Some students in my class on Paul and the early church tried setting up a Twitter account, to tweet what the church in Corinth might have tweeted. They didn’t do much with it (at least, not yet), but even the couple of tweets that are on there are amusing. [Read more...]

Interesting Posts Elsewhere: New Location!

But I think there is a solution which may be acceptable to those who've enjoyed that sidebar or RSS feature. [Read More...]

RSS Graffiti and TwitterFeed

Those of you who connect to my blog via Facebook (whether on the Exploring Our Matrix page or my own personal profile) or Twitter will have witnessed some of the inadequacies of the NetworkedBlogs app, which has been offering dead links on some occasions and duplicate postings on others. I have deactivated the NetworkedBlogs syndication [Read More...]

New Pages at Exploring Our Matrix

Some of you may have experienced slow load times or error messages on this blog in the past. The cause was apparently my sidebar widget which shared interesting posts elsewhere.
