My dive into blogging: music, technology, saving money


Still here

Never thought I’d let so much time slip away between posts. All is well, I am happy to report. My dive into blogging has been a tremendous asset in my latest work assignment. As I blogged in a previous post, I can really relate to the lyrics in that Stevie Wonder song “As,” where Stevie sings about God knowing exactly where he wants you to be placed.

I have been placed in some very challenging places since my “downsizing” at the Chicago Sun-Times, and I know I have grown in ways I would not have had I remained there. Sure, I’ve picked up some job skills. Doubt I would have squeezed in going back to school while I was at the paper. But my biggest growth has been spiritual. And it’s made me re-evaluate what I want to blog about.

Yep, I’m thinking of starting up a new blog about my spiritual journey. So as not to pull a bait-and-switch on those interested in my passion for music, tech and saving money, it’s only fitting that I talk about my walk with God in another forum.

I’m mulling over how I’ll approach the new blog now, and I’m not abandoning this one. I just feel called to devote what little free time I find myself with lately to something that may help people in a more meaningful way.

Just wanted everyone to know I’m good, and looking forward to more blessings.

Even more interesting than what this former editor got right, however, are the things that he and almost every other visionary completely missed — and one of the most important was the way that the…
