Turn the Lights Back On–A Blog Reawakening

It’s been a while.  But it’s time to come back.  Turn the lights back on.

This blog has never been about my personal life, and it’s not going to be.  But in resuming blogging, I will say this: it has been a busy 2010-11 for me (I think in terms of school years as a college prof).  In the final year of my doctorate, I have had teaching, comprehensive exams, dissertation research, and dissertation writing on my plate.  I still have a bit to go.  It has been a big help to take some pressure off by cutting some things from my life in order to care well for my family.

I also took some time to think through the issue of social media self-promotion.  I’ve tried to avoid that in the past by not making this blog about me, but I became concerned about this issue some time ago.  I continue to think about it, but I can say very quickly that writing on a blog can be a good way of exercising leadership that, hopefully, glorifies the Lord and blesses his people.  I want to write more about this and plan to do so soon.

I can’t lie, though.  I’ve been itching to return for months now.  So here we go.  Starting Monday, I’ve got a bunch of good content for you.  In the tradition of my New England Puritan forebears, this is a blog reawakening.  This is exciting to approximately twelve of you.  But no worries.  The lights are back on, and that’s what matters.
