Wayne’s Random Thoughts Is Now “Dad in the Middle”

So, I got a little bit a grief about the name of blog today from Dave Wakerly over on his blog [Kid Inspiration]. Here is what he had to say:

Love this post from Wayne Stocks brilliant random thoughts blog, which is what you call your blog before you realise there are approx. 18.7 million with the same title. :) (Man, I really know how to build up and tear down in one sentence)

I appreciated the link to my post and also the good natured ribbing about the name of my blog.  I have been meaning to come up with something for a while, and his post inspired me to try something new today.  So, I am pleased to announce that I am changing the name of this blog (for the time being) to:

Announcement: Plans for the future of “Wayne’s Random Thoughts” Blog

To those of you who frequent this site, I wanted to update you on my plans – at least as they now stand.  I never really had a plan when I started the blog other than sharing my thoughts about God, the Bible, Children’s Ministry, etc.  Since sometime in March, I have posted a new article every day (with a couple of exceptions), and I have really enjoyed it.  Unfortunately, I am now at the point where keeping up that schedule takes up too much of my time.  So, for the near future at least, I plan to cut back a little.  Here is what I am thinking:

1. I have been posting my chapter-by-chapter synopsis of Tedd’s Tripp’s book Shepherding A Child’s Heart on both Sunday and Thursday.  I think I am going to cut out the Sunday post and just post a new entry each Thursday.  That will leave Sunday as a day off for church and spending more time with the old family – seems appropriate.  I may occasionally post on Sundays, but as of right now, I’m not planning on it.  I have other books for which I am planning similar series once we’re done with Shepherding a Child’s Heart.

2. I still intend to post an entry in the Monday Morning Prophecy each Monday.  I may go to en every-other-Monday schedule at some point, but I’m not planning on that for right now.

3. Tuesday is still ogoing to be reserved for The Blog Patrol a weekly round up of the best blog entries from the blogs I review. This is a popular feature on the blog which I’m not intending on changing it anytime in the near future.

Wayne's Random Thoughts is moving!

So, I’ve only been doing this blogging thing for a few months now, but I decided it was time to move the blog.  I’ve started a “mirror blog” here!

While I like the features of WordPress.com, I’ve decided to move the blog over to my own homepage.  I’m also really excited about the new layout over there.  Let me know what you think.

I apologize for any inconvenience, but I decided it would be easier to make the switch now then wait several months down the road.  I am still learning the ropes with the new blog, so I’ve decided to run them as “mirror sites” for at least a week or so until I get comfortable with the new site.  After that, I will leave the old content here so that links will still work, but only the new site will reflect the new content.

Thanks again.

Wayne
