The work of a blogger is never complete! And that’s one of the things that is so wonderful about blogging (and being creative in general) – we’re always growing and learning. This week I discovered some things I can do with my theme that I didn’t even know were possible, and I tackled some housekeeping issues with the blog that have been loitering in the back of my mind for some time.
Changes I’ve made this week:
- Added a Top Menu (at the very top of the page)
- Added a Social Media Menu (top right)
- Reorganised Categories (in the right sidebar)
- Added an Audio Widget (also in the right sidebar)
I realise these changes are going to make the homepage look a little ‘busier’ at first, but I’m hoping you’ll easily adjust to the changes. I’m not going to do a Facebook and endlessly add new boxes and features so that visiting my blog becomes really confusing. I expect the changes I’ve made to make navigation and engagement easier.
This Week’s Posts
I was a little anxious about posting this week’s Thursday Theology post, as I knew it would lead to impassioned discussions among my fellow theologians and Christian friends over the free will issue. Nevertheless, I’m glad to keep expressing those aspects of the Christian worldview that I struggle to accept and believe, and I’m grateful to everyone who encourages me to voice my beliefs, and to everyone who thinks deeply about the problems I raise.
On Friday I posted my first Friday Philosophy post, entitled ‘Is Everything Made of Water?’ and was grateful for the warm response that post received. Next Friday the series will continue with a look at a big idea by Pythagoras, and don’t worry, I won’t be getting mathematical on you as maths isn’t exactly my area of expertise!
My Week in Review
It’s been a truly wonderful week, by God’s grace. I was happy and motivated every day and managed to get a lot done. I even went swimming, which always feels like a chore but is great exercise and very refreshing. I’ve given up Coca-Cola completely, and have stopped sweetening my hot drinks with sugar, these dietary changes being made partly to acknowledge the Lenten season and partly for health reasons.
There has been no news on whether I will be able to get an Assured Tenancy Agreement for my present accommodation, but after much prayer I remain convinced that God wants me to stay here and so I’m trying to ignore the practical uncertainties, trust God, remain prayerful, and focus my attention on living well.
Oh, and I spent a big part of the week recording song six of my T.E.N. Project. I’m really excited about this one; I feel as though it’s the best of the project so far. I had no idea what it would sound like when I started to put the song together, but it all came together well and is sounding absolutely rocking. Release date is 10th March!
Be assured that you’re in my prayers – every Sunday I spend some quality time on my knees to the Lord reaching out to Him on behalf of my friends, family, acquaintances, and followers. I wish you all a wonderful week and thank you so much for reading, I appreciate you!
