Well, first off, let me clarify: I’m moving blogs. I’m unapologetic about any confusion.
A while back, I was asked if I would ever want to write at The Blazing Center. After some long, thoughtful conversations (and by this I mean Facebook messages that were thoughtlessly snarky), I’ve decided to make The Blazing Center my blogging home.
I first started writing a Tumblr page named counterculturing. years ago. That turned into me purchasing a domain name and moving web platforms, all while trying to discipline myself as a writer. I have never really tried to grow this blog with monetezation or SEO or any of the other bloggy stuff. Part of this is because I don’t like the nature of the beast, but the honest truth is that I’ve never been good at the back-end of blogging. Making this switch allows me to focus on writing more instead of all the hassle that goes into getting it from my fingers to your screen. Coming off a quasi-hiatus felt like an appropriate time to make a move, as the boxes were already packed up for me here. I plan on periodically keeping this page updated, serving as something of a hub for the various outlets at which I have written and hope to write—but as far as new content goes, you won't find my regular blogging here.
It might seem pretty insignificant to most of you, but I’m pretty excited about the opportunity. And, as an added benefit, you’ll get exposed to awesome writers like Stephen and Mark Altrogge, Barnabas Piper, and some other guests occasionally featured on the site.
It’s been a fun run, counterculturing. I came up with your name pretty aimlessly, and I just didn’t want to spend money on a new domain. But you were always good to me.
If you’re interested, you can read what I wrote at The Blazing Center earlier this month about treating depression with the concoction of medicine and the gospel: “What Zoloft is Teaching Me About God”
