Rediscovering the Benefit of Blogging

In May, 2011, two months into writing this blog, I had been writing and publishing three e-books in the theology and spirituality genre while simultaneously writing as many as five blogs: three related to theology and spirituality, and two devoted to writing and photography. Additionally, I was doing magazine management consulting work for a publishing client.

Something had to give. Of the three options, I chose to discontinue the five blogs. This freed up enough time and relieved enough stress to enable me to complete my project for my client and to publish all three of my manuscripts as Amazon Kindle, PubIt! and Smashwords e-books.

For months after that, I’d been focusing on just about everything but writing and blogging. It wasn’t until July of this year, when, as a result of all the hype about the discovery of the Higgs boson, which reignited the how-the-universe-got-started debate, that  I started reading Brian Greene’s The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos. Some of the scientists, stepping way beyond the boundaries of the physical sciences, asserted that their discovery proved that there no longer was a need for a God to create the universe, the “God Particle” (presumably, the Higgs boson) created the entire universe.

 

That was all the impetus I needed to jump into the fray with my new blog, God Seen in His Universe. It is a great     opportunity to combine my love for theology and my love for astronomy and cosmology with the awe-inspiring    photography of an international host of land-based and space-based telescopes to demonstrate how contemporary scientific discoveries continue to reveal the unfolding of God’s grand design for the universe.
