Last week, I was able to share some exciting news about the Armstrong family’s future. (If you missed it, go and check out the update.) Things are moving fast and furious around here, so I thought I’d provide another brief update.
We did it, everyone!
With my new job, one of the big things we’ve been working on figuring out is where to live. Recently, we travelled to Nashville to start looking, and I’ve got some good news:
We found a place!
We’ll be living in a lovely apartment in Franklin, Tennessee, about 25-30 minutes away from the LifeWay offices when the traffic is halfway decent. Franklin is a beautiful town, so I couldn’t be happier to live there. The apartment we’ve chosen is close to shopping, restaurants, and a health clinic, so it’s ideal for Emily (whose epilepsy prevents her from driving). The kids are (mostly) excited, though there are some mixed emotions what with saying goodbye to friends and all.
When does the move happen? Soon. Very soon, in fact. Lord willing, we will be arriving Thursday or Friday of next week, which gives us a full week to settle in before I start my new job.
My new (interim) blogging schedule
Speaking of moving and settling in, let’s talk about my schedule for a second. Specifically, my blogging schedule. As you probably know, I am a daily blogger. Every single day, there’s something new here, whether it’s curated content (“links I like”) or original material (articles, reviews, podcasts). For the last four years, I’ve run a daily curated content post, as well as an original article, unless something prevented me from doing so. Starting today and at least through the end of August, what you’re going to see is something like this:
- Monday: Original content
- Tuesday: Links I like
- Wednesday: Reading Writers [Podcast]
- Thursday: Links I Like
- Friday: Original content
- Saturday: Weekend reading
- Sunday: Short devotional content
On Mondays and Fridays, I may still include an edition of “links I like”, but that has yet to be decided. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you may see a link to a post I write for The Gospel Project blog, or another site, such as For the Church or Christianity Today’s The Local Church.
This new schedule is going to really help me manage my own expectations on my time and output. Knowing I only have to worry about a few key pieces of content each week here goes a long way to making this transition an easy one for me and my family.
That’s it for the latest update. Look for more news as it happens.
