Now what?

Every blogger has to face whether their blog has reached an end point. This can be for a variety of reasons. Two of the most common reasons seem to be: 1) The blog has come to a natural close, and 2) The blogger has moved beyond the blog's purpose. Obviously, my posts have tapered off. I have moved much further along in my post-Mormon journey, and I need to do some assessment as a writer.

It's time to grapple with the existential "whence, why, whither" questions related to this blog. So, dear blog followers and casual readers alike, please give me some feedback. I need to re-tool this blog or end it. This is an open invitation for you to leave your comments and suggestions about subject, focus, tone, design, or anything else you'd like to write. You can be nice or mean, diplomatic or blunt. I deal with all types at work every day. I'll be looking forward to your feedback. And if I don't get any, that will be a sign of its own.

And, since it is the season... Happy Pride!


  1. I like this blog -- you bring a dynamic and unique perspective to making a transition away from or beyond Mormonism that I haven't found other places. Sometimes I don't read every post because of the length so maybe you can split posts into two or more shorter posts?

  2. After 5 years and and some 225 posts, I stopped writing my moho blog, concentrating instead on professional and personal blogs. It wasn't that I didn't have anything more to say: there are always current events that I could respond to, but I was getting very little feedback from my 17 "followers," and I felt that if no one was listening, it wasn't worth the time. I know that's a little egocentric, but it's how I felt.

    Anyway, I also decided to read fewer blogs so cut down on the blogs that I follow. Your blog made the cut, so keep that in mind as you decide what to do.

  3. My sincere thanks to you all for the feedback, both here and privately. More feedback is always welcome.

    In the next few weeks, I'll be deciding what to do about this blog. In any event, this blog will be stay here as an archive.
