What the Future Holds for this Site

My efforts to keep you informed last month were not nearly as good as I thought, or intended, them to be it seems.  Please accept my apologies for that.  Recently, I announced that I was transferring a large portion of this blog to a new site called Marketplace Christianity.

This process ended up involving much more than I had anticipated, but I was exposed to many new tools and blogging concepts that I might not otherwise have had a chance to experience.  During all of this, it seems some of you sent the dogs out to find me.  Thank you.  It’s nice to know I was missed.

What Happened to The Christian Entrepreneur?

Let me just take a moment and explain what’s been happening for those who are not aware.  In November of last year, this blog was renamed to The Christian Entrepreneur.  While I still blogged about topics like social media, blogging, and small business the focus of the blog was primarily helping entrepreneurs apply Biblical financial principles to operate and grow their businesses.

God kept expanding the vision of what he wanted me to do with this site.  He wanted me to stop restricting the blog to just entrepreneurs.  The vision was to explore how His principles from the Bible work for leaders, managers, employees, and in the marketplace where we spend most of our time and money too.  So the new site was launched to focus solely on this topic.

What to Do with What’s Left?

The past three weeks I’ve spent launching Marketplace Christianity and the social media accounts for it.  This involved carving out a huge chunk of posts from this site, re-editing them, and transferring them.  Now that this process is completed, what do I do with what’s left?  Where do we go from here?

There was a surprisingly large number of posts left after this process.  Thinking back on how two separate communities had developed around this site, I shouldn’t have been surprised.  The remaining posts fall under either blogging or business with a few in social media or general announcements.  Is this what I want to write about going forward?  Yes, but there’s also many more topics.

Those Who Don’t Learn From History …

So am I about to go down the same road again with divergent topics?  Perhaps.  It’s likely as we travel down this road that I’ll announce the launching of another website and go through this process again.  I’ve already have a few ideas in mind.  Until then, I will be writing about topics that interest me and hopefully you too.

I will be sharing more of myself and you will see that reflected in my writing and this site’s design.  There will still be religion, but hold onto your hats because it will likely be controversial.  I’ll still share with you interesting blogging and social media tips I discover.  There will still be posts about small business.  Finally, there will be whatever happens to be in my head from politics, news, sports, movies, and music.

It should be fun.  I hope you’ll share the journey with me.

So, my blog feed should no longer include this site, but should be MPC from now on?

I would think so, David. Any intersection of religion and money will be posted there. I don’t know what the mix of posts will be here between the various topics, so they may or may not be of interest to your readers.

That’s one thing I like about blogging, flexibility. You can make and break your own rules at any time. ;-) But, if you don’t have flexible readers and supporters … you might want to ease them into the transition. Life is all about balance, if you ask me … since there’s a comment box, I guess you did. :-)

Whatever you choose, even if you change down the road, I’ll be here!

Once you have readers, and especially commenters, it becomes a little more painful to be flexible. When I started blogging almost a year ago, I thought I would be writing to myself quite some time before anyone ever paid any attention. Fortunately, I found several great people almost immediately. Unfortunately for them, they have had to put up with my blogging learning curve. I’ll figure it out one day. ;)

P.S. I’m always asking you.Thanks for all the support.

You know I’ve found bloggers to be so supportive, and that might be due to the learning curve we all experience. :-)
