As you can see, I've been tinkering with design for Balsbaugh7.
As a part of that, I will be gradually removing the "Thinking about" sidebar item by taking an item off the list, making brief comment on it in a short blog post and then labeling it. Let me know if there's anything you were particulalry interested in at some point.
I'm also thinking about a platform for a new web-site that would be a thinned out version of this one, leaving out the family stuff and just dual posting most of the rest - education, commentary, scripture, music, etc.
Balsbaugh7 wouldn't change at all, but techno-Sabbatarian would offer a more professionalized version of the content for those who read but feel like they are peeking in on a family meeting and so feel weird commenting. (That's not in the least a suggestion for my sisters and mother to stop commenting! That's been the #1 benefit of having this blog, and the reason I wouldn't want to run only a disincarnate idea blog.)
I also wouldn't mind if technoSabbatarian becomes more widely read someday (like when I write a book and need to promote it :-) so I'm thinking of soft-promoting techno-Sabbatarian by using it rather than Balsbaugh7 as my link when I comment on other more widely read blogs.
There's no content there yet. But if you want to check out the design, go to www.technosabbatarian.blogspot.com
As a bonus, you can also see the final five blogs I decided upon!
After you take a look, let me know what you think.
●Any comments on the idea of doing this in the first place?
●Any comments on the banner design?
●www.technosabbatarian.blogspot or www.techno-sabbatarian.blogspot? (hypen or hyphen-less)
●What on Balsbaugh7 would work well there and what makes this feel more like a family blog (that I also want to run)?
I'm working on a welcome post that I will also have some questions about in the next couple days, so if you want to contribute, start thinking about what the principles of techno-Sabbatarianism should be.
