Blogging: An Apology


Yes, it's been a while, but there we are. Things aren't what they used to be between us back in the early days and we've kind of drifted apart, I suppose. Life and stuff, you know. It's just like...

Look at the dwindling number of posts over the years. 

It's not as if I've neglected you altogether. There's been the occasional post. Recycled articles, holiday snaps, wedding anniversary stuff, event publicity. But that's not real blogging. We both know that. 

I dunno. Been kind of busy, I guess. Rome and Venice with the Mrs, church work, governor responsibilities, dizzying round of concerts and things; Coldplay, From The Jam, The Tempest. Meetings. There's always the meetings. 

And I've got a volume and a half of John Owen to get through, absorb and turn into a paper by September. Read and speak on Vols 13-16 of Owen. Saying 'yes' seemed like a good idea at the time. Here's the low-down: on Reading John Owen

It just isn't happening for me right now. Bloggers' block. Like writers' block, but for wannabes.

'Are  you the Exiled Preacher' they ask. Maybe once I was. Who knows?

I hope at some stage, probably after your conference, you will write a blog for the layman giving helpful hints about reading John Owen. I've tried a couple of times and given up. I even started the Kapic, Taylor version on Kindle but got distracted. Best wishes.....
