Some changes to the blog…

Posted by on Oct 18, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Thanks for reading this blog. For the last year I have been posting on Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning, and have been happy with the response – almost 20 000 page views this calendar year. But the frequency of posting is eating into my time a little too much – more particularly, it is slowing the progress on the 3 new book projects that a spoke about a few posts ago. This is to alert you that while the blog will continue to operate (this is definitely not a closure notice), posts in the foreseeable future, won’t be as frequent. As usual when a new post is up, I will send...

Orlando and Singing: Insights from other blogs…

Posted by on Jun 17, 2016 in Blog | 5 comments

You have heard enough of my voice in recent posts, so I thought I would do a cut and paste from two other blogs to vary the diet. The first is a brief response to the Orlando tragedy, the second asks why people aren’t singing in church anymore (and do you agree with that sentiment? Are people singing at your church?) Hope you find them helpful. On the Orlando Massacre (Jesus Creed) From Archbishop Justin Welby: In the wake of the appalling attack in Orlando, I’ve released this joint statement with the Archbishop of York John Sentamu: “After Sunday’s attack in Orlando, as Christians we must...

On the one hundred and first blog post…

Posted by on Apr 22, 2016 in Blog | 1 comment

This is the one hundred and first post since this blog started in late August 2015. I thought that justified a bit of an update on the blog and some reflection on how it has been going. For those who like facts and figures, after the first 100 posts the site has had 18 216 page visits 10 484 different visits (many would be repeat readers, so I don’t know how many different people this represents) Visits from over 150 countries, with 74% of visits coming from Australia, followed by New Zealand (6.7%), USA (5.3%), South Africa (3.6%) and the UK (2.6%). The most viewed post is Same Sex...

Some great posts…

Posted by on Jan 10, 2016 in Blog | 2 comments

From time to time I like to refer our readers to some great posts on other sites… though always hoping that they will still keep looking at this site. So what are some recent posts that I have enjoyed? Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed blog recently ranked this post on being on the wrong side of history as their post of the year. Now there are some great posts on that site, and I wouldn’t necessarily have rated this as number 1, but it is an intriguing read and argues back strongly against the emotional manipulation present in ‘you will be on the wrong side of...

Blog Reflections: Most and least successful posts and all that…

Posted by on Jan 8, 2016 in Blog | 2 comments

With the new year moving along steadily, I thought it as well to write up some reflections on the life of this blog in 2015. For most of the year it lay dormant – an idea brewing and developing. Starting it was on my list of goals for 2015, and with the help of Ben O’Reilly, a domain name and basic site had been built early in the year. True, the domain name was not my initial choice – but the trouble with a name as common as Brian Harris is that more obvious choices like brianharris.com and brianharrisblog.com were already taken. So brianharrisauthor.com it is – a...
