Making a Blogging Restart

So this is my first post in a long time. Looks like my previous post was in April. That is close to three months ago. There is not much of a point of having a blog that is posted to every couple of months.

I have had a love hate relationship with this whole blogging thing. I will post faithfully for a couple of months and then I will not have a single post for months. I enjoy it. Just maybe not enough.

You can make all the excuses in the world, but when it comes down to it, you do what is important. It is not that I don’t have enough time, it is just that I have not made this a priority. There is family. There is a church I pastor. There are all the things that come up in life. But you will always make time for what is important.

For all my best intentions, intentions alone are not enough. It would be easy to just give up and leave the blog behind. But I believe that it is important not to give up. It is not time to dwell on the past, but to learn from the past.

Every time I make a commitment to make this thing work, it takes off. But then for whatever reason I simply give up on it. So we are going to give it a go again. Today I am making a blogging restart. We are going to make this thing work this time.

As we move forward, here is the strategy. There are essentially three places where I am going to be posting. There is greaterthings.today. This is my primary ministry site focused on discipleship. There is philressler.com. This site is focus on other things, particularly my interests in technology and WordPress. Finally, there is our church website which is gs4nj.org. The church site will be more of an informational site moving forward where while the discipleship material has migrated to Greater Things.

We will see where this all goes from here. So if you are reading this, thank you for following in spite of all the inconsistent posting.
