Torn between two blogs

So, I’ve been dumping some of the old entries into Blogger over the past few days, and I gotta say…I love it. Dang, this is easy. A HECK of a lot easier than Rapidweaver.

So, what was I doing not doing this a long time ago…like, maybe two years ago?
Sheesh.

Did I mention that sometime take a long time to make crucial decisions?
It’s an issue.

So, now the debate in my head is what to do with all the old blog entries from the old blog. They’ll hang out in cyberspace as long as I let them, I suppose. But I’ve already dragged them along once before (moving from iBlog to RapidWeaver…) and I’m really not thrilled about doing that again.

I supppose I will probably do it “hit and miss”…maybe importing some that seem especially important to keep around.

If there are any old entries near and dear to *your* heart….let me know.

We’ll see how this goes….EF

Eric Folkerth is a minister, musician, author and blogger. He has been Senior Pastor of Northaven United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas since 2001. During his tenure, church membership has grown almost 30 percent, and a completely new church facility (sanctuary and education building) has been constructed. Northaven is a leading progressive Christian congregation in the Southwest. Northaven is an eclectic collection of gay and straight families, artists, musicians, theater folks, academic theologians, lawyers and judges (go figure), socially conscious community activists, people who don't "check their brain at the door," and a wide array of others who either see it as their "last chance" inside the "institutional church," or their first trip back in decades. Eric is an avid blogger and published author.  Eric is also an award-winning singer-songwriter, who performs throughout Texas and the Southwest. He's an engaging live performer whose first CD was released in 2000. His songs have won honorable mention in both the Billboard and Great American song contests; and he's been a finalist in the 5th Street Festival and South Florida Folk Festival songwriter competitions. Eric is also a leader of Connections, a unique band comprised of United Methodist clergy and layfolk from throughout North Texas. Connections performs "cover shows" of artists like Dan Fogelberg, Chicago, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and others. Their shows draw crowds of between 300 and 1,000 fans, and they have raised more than $240,000 dollars for worthy charities. Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He's a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named "best judge" by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County. She was re-elected for a third term in 2010. They have the world's best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy. (As always, if you like this post, then "like" this on Facebook by clicking the box below, so others can see too...)

  1. I think you'll find that it works quite well. I've been using blogspot for a couple of years. From what I've heard from people who have used other hosts for their blogs, it's more reliable and easier to work with than most.If I had known you were going to have a new blog address, I would have included a link to it in my Splash Award. But I've updated your blog address in my blog list, and I hope some of my readers look at what you write.

  2. Thanks, David. I am certainly finding this to be true so far. The interface is just FAR easier to use than the box-based software I was using. As with many life decisions, I end up thinking "why didn't I do this months ago?!"
