Welcome to the new blog…

I have moved Standing on My Head from Patheos because I wanted to get away from the increased commercialism at that site. I also wanted to return to the more personal and relational style that I first had when blogging. As the readership increased at Patheos we lost the personal contact. I had to close the comments box because there were simply too many comments to moderate and too often commenters were using my combox as their soapbox.

Having a subscription gateway helps us return to that smaller, more personal blog. The main blog posts will still be free for everyone to read. My archived material will still be lodged at Patheos and will also be free. However there will be a donor-subscriber section here. Check it out here to see what is reserved for donor-subscribers.

My blog, writing and speaking is my contribution to the New Evangelization. I encourage you to subscribe to help keep me blogging. Your subscription fee helps me pay for the design and hosting costs of this website, and helps the Longenecker family budget.

Thanks again for visiting and God bless you.

I’m in, Sign me up!
