Well, I’m soft-launching my new blog here on Christmas Eve (of all times), although it’s not really new. We know that I’ve been blogging for years over at http://chrisridgeway.blogspot.com. It’s had several names (blog names always feel somewhat dispensable), including “To Have Mine Match” and most recently “Jesus Under Plastic.” This time, it felt right to move to a whole new platform—so I’ve got my own WordPress 2.9 install all spiffed up now and my own new domain: www.theodigital.com.
My domain www.chrisridgeway.net will direct here soon, and I still plan to keep personal news and family and friends with me. But because I’ve spent the last 1.5 years focused on the intersection of digital media ecology and theology, I didn’t want to stop when the degree did. This name gives me a space to think and do theology as a digital native, and simultaneously try to do that in the missional conversation.
There’s still a lot of stuff not right on here (Feedburner isn’t working properly, tags aren’t correctly implemented, I have some introduction pages that I need to write, and I’m not too excited about the webcam pic on the left). But this is good enough for now.
Also, Merry Christmas. :)
