A year ago I embarked on a journey to put my pen to the page and write what I was thinking. And you entertained the thoughts I was writing. Not everything I’ve written has been worthy of your attention. But you read anyway. Sometimes you commented. Other times you deleted my thoughts and dismissed them into your online trash folder. Either way you became ears listening to the words that I needed to voice. Thank you.
After using free space, free services, and free software to test the waters of writing, I decided to put some skin in the game and purchase a permanent home for my thoughts: www.AshtonStewart.net
I’ve spend some time moving into my new home and now I think I am settled enough to invite you over for a visit. I hope you’ll stop by from time to time to catch up on my latest musings. Maybe even stay long enough for a chat by leaving your comments. All of my posts from the last year have made it to my new home. So feel free to search though old material.
One of my favorite new features for this site is connection it will have to my Church family. I will link my sermons to the site every week. Much of the content that I write will directly serve to help spiritually grow the members of Warrenton Christian. But I think you will benefit as well.
You will from time to time have the chance to hear from some of my friends who will stop by for a visit. Another new feature will be the presence of guest posts written by guest authors who will write content uniquely for you. I think you will enjoy some of the guests that will bring thoughts for which they are more qualified to write than I am. If you’re ever interested in sharing your thoughts in a guest post on my site, shoot me a message and I’ll be glad to see what we can do together.
Maybe you’re wondering, “Ashton, why would you spend money on a space to write after you’ve not written anything for three months on your free site? Where have you been?” And that’s certainly a valid question to ask! Since my last post on February 18, 2013, I have been incredibly busy:
*My family and I just moved into our newly purchased home (I’ll share about that later).
*I just wrapped up a men’s mentor group with a group of guys in my Church (this will certainly be a post soon).
*I’ve been reading a ton of books (Keep an eye on my Book Notes page)
*I planted a garden. (So many lessons learned from growing stuff)
*I’ve been developing www.AshtonStewart.net
What Do I Do Now?
Since this will be the last post that will ever go out from the old address: ashtonstewart.wordpress.com, maybe you’re wondering if you’ll continue to receive all of the latest posts I write.
If you are an email subscriber, meaning you entered your email on my page and you receive my latest posts in your email inbox, you should continue to receive updated posts. I was able to move my email subscriber list to the new home. You might want to go ahead and enter your email address at the bottom of my new site just in case so you don’t miss out.
If you are a wordpress.com blogger who follows my site from your dashboard, I was not able to make the move with your contact information. So if you want to continue to receive my latest posts, you will have to go to my new home and enter your email address at the bottom right corner of the page.
I’m FIRED UP about writing more content this summer for you. I hope you enjoy your visit to my new home. And if you get a chance, give me a shout out in the comment section below any post at my new site and let me know what you think of the new place.
