I joined Patheos in January 2013, and I’ve been writing here ever since. That’s nine years – a respectable tenure by any standard.
Patheos offered me a new home when I departed Big Think, for which I’m grateful. They’ve always respected my editorial independence and never sought to steer me away from writing about whatever I please, and I’m grateful for that as well.
However, the time has come to move on. I’ve accepted an offer to join a new media platform that launches in January 2022. I can’t say any more than that just yet – the curtain hasn’t risen on this particular stage – but believe me, I’m filled with excitement!
If you want to be notified when the new site goes live, you can sign up for e-mail notification here. Note that Pale Blue Studio isn’t going to be the name; that’s just a placeholder.
My last day on Patheos will be December 14. After that, this blog will be frozen. My understanding is that it will remain available indefinitely as an archive, including the comments. My old posts will also be imported to the new site, although regrettably the comments can’t be transferred, because it uses a different, incompatible commenting system.
This isn’t my last post! I still plan to publish my year-end wrapup, and maybe one or two other things as the mood takes me. But I wanted to put this news out there as soon as possible. As any good writer knows, building anticipation is the main thing.
Until then, if you’d like to stay in touch, send me a friend request on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter. Better yet, check out my Patreon, where I’m publishing my novel Commonwealth and possible future writing projects. I hope to see you there!
