New Blogging Format for 2019

Over the past several months, I have been following a set format for my blogging articles: Miscellaneous Mondays, Tuesday Newsday, Wednesday Wisdom, Thursday’s Top 10, Family Fridays, Suffering Saturdays, and Sermon Synopsis Sundays. That will all be changing starting January 1. While I will still write about many of these topics, they will not be on specific days. Nor will I be blogging on Sundays very often.  I am reserving Saturdays for recommended blog articles that I have read throughout the week.

What can you expect from my blogs in 2019? That is an excellent question. I still believe that I am finding my spot in the blogosphere, and seeking to settle nicely into an area that I am comfortable in and one in which I can be at my best. That being said…I am hoping to get out at least one book review a month and continue to write on current events while bringing in biblical principles to shed light on such matters. Occasionally, I will also be writing to expound on a Scripture passage, such as the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, a Psalm or Proverb, etc.

My plan is to continue to blog every weekday and, as I mentioned before, to recommend blogs on Saturdays and rest on Sundays. May this year be a year of happy blogging and happy reading as I do want to thank each of my readers who continue to follow, like, comment, and share.

Book Reading Plan for 2019

January 6, 2019 will mark the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt’s death. As some of you know from previous posts, I am very much a TR fan. That being said…this year’s reading plan is going to be all about Teddy. I have a host of biographies that I will be Image result for A Bully Father bookreading, including his own autobiography. Having already read Robert Morris’ trilogy on Roosevelt’s life, I will be reading individual events about him this year including his time on the River of Doubt, the Spanish-American War (Rough Riders), and his safari in Africa. I will be starting January 1 with A Bully Father: Theodore Roosevelt’s Letters to His Children by Joan Peterson Kerr (forward by David McCullough) and the aforementioned Autobiography.

On top of these biographical moments of TR, I will also be reading many of his works, including American Ideals, The Winning of the West, and America and the World War. My hope is to read one of his works every month and do a book review on each one, so stay tuned throughout the year.
