Originally I re-started this website so that people could track my progress on a blow-by-blow basis of my ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. But it occurred to me that once the campaign was over, it’d essentially be a “dead” site. After all, it’s not like I’m going back to Tanzania to go again anytime soon. I don’t really want this site to end up like that. I started cantateop.org way back in 2010 in Mexicali as a way to communicate with friends and family and I shut it down when it ate up too much into my study time. All that content is archived somewhere, but it’s also dated (I was still four years from ordination).
Rather than let it go fallow, I’ll update the site with new content regularly so that it’s interesting and may have some benefit to others. If it becomes untenable, or if it doesn’t have enough readers, then I’ll make a decision then. But in the meantime, I hope that I can wax more theological than experiential. If you’re reading this text on the site, you’ve already noticed that the DONATE buttons are gone (I closed the funding portal weeks ago), and that the design is no longer focused on Kilimanjaro. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll still be hanging in the out-of-doors whenever I can.
Be certain to let me know if you like or don’t like what you see and/or read. It’ll help me gauge the direction of the site, and where I think I should put my focus.
God bless as I embark on a new direction.
