The Changing Box

Warning, serious stuff here. Okay, I need to level with you faithful Boxers out there. I'm getting a little burnt out. Before you go into a mild panic, no I'm not going to shut down TBNN, I'm just going to change the way we do things here a little bit.

My life is busier and only getting busier, and I'll be honest, some days I really struggle to find something funny to write about, and other days I just don't have time. I started this blog as a hobby, not a business. We sell no advertising here, so I cannot devote a huge amount of time to it. If we were racking in the dough each month off of commission then things would probably be different. If anyone out there reading this would like to contribute a large sum of money to support me doing this every day then we'll talk. But since that's probably not going to happen I must change things a bit. So on days when the creative juices are less than stellar (in my opinion) the 30 minutes to an hour it takes me to write, find/design images and post could be better spent doing other things I need to do. All that being said here's the deal...

Like I said, I'm not shutting down the blog, just changing the way we do things here. As far as I know Elder Eric and Brother Slawson will continue their regular Tuesday and Saturday postings respectively. Dr. Bill will appear on occasion as he gets inspired. I can say that I will probably still be posting at least two times per week. So you should at least have 4 articles a week coming your way. So from this point on you can expect there to be some days (other than Sundays) where there are no posts. But in the same respect, there will probably still be weeks where you get a post every day, it just depends on what's happening. Also, for those of you who are used to new posts being up every morning, that might change too. The timing of new posts will probably vary from this point on.

For those of you who have counted on TBNN for your daily spew of coffee on the computer screen, might I suggest perusing some of our archives. I'm assuming most of you haven't read every single article ever published here. If you have, we'll try to come up with some kind of award for you. But, if you look over on the sidebar you'll see a link for a "Providential Article." Press this little magic link and you be instantly transported to a past article, providentially selected. Read, laugh, comment, email them to your friends, etc.

For those of you who have counted on TBNN for your daily rant about Calvinism and the Reformed Faith, might I suggest golf.

Last night, the Union University Proclamation group sang "Nearer My God To Thee" arranged by Slawson. It was awesome.

What? you mean you don't get kickbacks from all the wonderful products you review on these pages? You know; like the personal Jesus ticket, Build your own belief system, the smallest Purpose Driven Life, and my personal favorite, the Self Taser. And here I've been buying these, thinking it would help you out. Oh well.

Peter Kirk said...

Tom, aren't there always kickbacks in the Kingdom? For every satirical post that you sow, you will reap 100-fold, 60-fold and 30-fold in satirical posts and comment rants. Truly I say to you, you have received your reward. ;-)

Wait just a minute- golf requires some skill.

Ranting and raving do not. HAHAHAHA

Whatever you do, Tom, we know that you'll be doing it by His grace and for His glory.

Golf requires skill? Not according to the golfers I know.

No sweat, Tom. I'm busy and don't blog every day, so I'm with you. I don't know how you've been keeping it up every day. I'll look forward to spewing coffee all over my monitor whenever you get the inspiration and opportunity.
