One Year On...

Reasons and Opinions was born this time last year. Those of us who founded it thought long and hard about a name (at one point we considered bloggy-woggy-- no joke!). Originally intended as a group blog among some friends, it gradually evolved (not by my choice!) into a solo adventure. But now, a year later, and after more than 300 posts, the time has come to shift directions a little. I have become a contributor on an excellent Catholic group blog, Vox Nova, and most of my blogging energy is now spent over there. Frankly, I have no time left to do any original blogging here any more, and most of my recent posts have simply been cross postings from Vox Nova.

With that in mind, I'm going to put Reasons and Opinions on hiatus for a while. I'm still blogging-- just over at Vox Nova. Frankly, I just don't see the point in continuing to cut and paste every post over here. I won't say this is the end, as I may well come back here at some stage in the future. For now though: it's been a fun ride, I've learned a lot, and I'm grateful to all of you who bother to waste your time reading my random scribbles. Actually, I have no real idea who reads this! So, if you would like to provide any general feedback, positive or negative-- now is the time to do it! And if you don't want to comment here, just send me an e-mail. Most importantly: bookmark Vox Nova. Do it now!

All the best,

Morning's Minion.

I appreciated your postings as the opinions of a Catholic whose political views reflected the totality of Church teaching.

Your decision to put the blog on hiatus is understandable, although regretable. Due to the volume of Vox Nova postings, your entries tend to get swept away faster than I would like.

I am afraid Vox Nova is going over the top.It may be fun but it seems to have turned into a mid level B.S. session.Save your thoughtful articles for your own Blog,where they will recieve a quieter but more thoughtful reading.

I could see it would eventually come to this when you went over to Vox Nova, but I do appreciate your views. I agree with the first poster that Vox Nova moves almost too fast sometimes.

ah, what a shame! over the year, i have followed your and your cobloggers ramblings with much pleasure. indeed, on occasions, i even felt compelled to contradict your thoughtful, if misguided elaborations. i'm afraid, it just won't be the same on some big blog site. your closer friends will certainly miss the homely feel of bloggy-woggy (btw, a much better name!). but, 'nuff moaned, enjoy the big wide catholic world, but do post the occassional restaurant review (from where are you ordering in these days? and which high-brow food temples have you recently enjoyed?) and don't forget that there are non-catholic angles out there. yours truthfully, kalle anka
