Website 101: Part 1

I am itching, just itching I tell you, to get back to the more meaningful, personal writing that I’m guessing you’d rather read just as much as I’d rather write.

However, I do want to make sure that we are all on the same page about this website: my vision for it and how it all works. There are specific purposes and meanings behind several elements, and I just want to make sure you know them!

For instance, the address. You’ll note it is not: “” Why? Because, this is not about me. This is about a revolution, a new way of looking at life.  Ok, actually not a new way. Just a return to the oldest way – the way the ancient words of scripture encourage us to look at life.  This is about a community of savorers, a community of people who want to encourage each other to hold on to the good.

That picture is to show you exactly where to correct this issue.

If you want to receive an e-mail when I post to the site, enter your e-mail address on the sidebar, right where that lovely red arrow is pointing. Then click the box that says “Get Blog Notifications”.

Hope that’s as clear as mud. If not, leave a comment and I can actually comment on your comment (another feature I am excited about because I couldn’t do that on CB!) and hopefully we can figure this thing out.
