Putting this thing on ice

This blog appeared in June 2007.  At the time it seemed blogging was something that most of the 6 billion-ish inhabitants of the planet would shortly be doing, so I might as well jump in earlier rather than later.

In these 4 1/2 years I have never really figured out why I was keeping at this blogging thing.  I’ve considered focusing on a specific area of interest – such as my Christian faith, or science, or the intersection of faith and science – but have rather chosen to blog about whatever was on my mind on any given day.  That worked for me the first couple of years, but lately I have gradually lost interest.  Or maybe its just laziness, or a general re-ordering of priorities, or the feeling that my face-to-face relationships matter more than my need to let the world know what I think of the latest news or online debate,

Whatever the reason(s), with my blog posts down to one every couple of months, I have decided to put Philgrim’s Blogress on ice.  Maybe it’s permanent.  Maybe someday I’ll feel inspired to resurrect it.  Meanwhile I’ll leave it online for the foreseeable future – just don’t expect fresh content.

Thanks to those of you who have dropped by from time to time over these years to read my musings, especially those who have provided feedback.

“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
The LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”’

- Numbers 6:24-26

    Hey Phil–sad to see you go, but also admire your courage to do this. I know, it’s just a blog, but still…

    I continue to feel compelled to carry on, even though I’m posting less than ever.

    Anyway, take care. I’ll see you on Facebook.

    Fairy snuff – sleep well little blog.

    I plan to stop when I’ve run out of things to say.

    Well I’ll miss reading your thoughts … but glad to have had the chance to get to know how you’ve “progressed” over the years …
