A season of fresh starts

{cough} So … much {cough, cough} dust in these parts (push away cobwebs}

It’s been more than a year since I blogged so there’s a fair to middling chance there isn’t a soul left around who particularly cares that I’m jumping back into the game.

I had spent so much time writing for my day job that I really had no interest at all in blogging anymore. There were other considerations, of course. Blogging had changed so much since I started back on MSN Spaces in 2005. Over the years, I was still posting what were essentially ephemeral glimpses of the flotsam and jetsam in my rather eclectic brain while so many other bloggers were getting into niches, planning their posts and marketing their blogs.

It seemed like so very much work to me.

So I bailed.

But, this is a season of fresh starts.

I recently started a new job and returned to seminary.

And that brings me to why I’m dusting off the blog.

There’s no better time to start blogging again that during the 31 Days project. It’s a chance for bloggers – even us lapsed bloggers – to delve more deeply into a topic by writing on the topic every day in October.

I’m a day late, but that strangely fits perfectly with my theme. Rather than a planned set of prewritten blogs, I’ll be writing a series on 31 days in the life of a seminary student – who also happens to work full time and takes care of the family. Along the way, I’ll talk more about why seminary, what I plan to do with a degree and the seminary journey so far.

I hope you’ll stick around. Feel free to look at past posts, but don’t judge my broken links. My blog has had a long history that has taken more than one rabbit trail – the latest of which lost many of the photos that accompanied the posts. I will get back to them one day, but tonight I have a couple of videos to watch and about 300 pages of reading to finish.

And, no. I’m not exaggerating.

But, that’s a day in the life of a seminary student.
