Welcome to the new home of Mere Orthodxy. We are still under a bit of construction, and probably will be for some time. We have nearly five hundred posts that will have to be categorized. However, we are excited to finally have them imported from our previous site and to be over here at MereOrthodoxy.com.
We at Mere O are immensely thankful to a number of people who made this site possible. In particular, I (Matt) am incredibly thankful to friend and blogger extraordinaire Stacy Harp, founder and owner of the fantastic service BlogforBooks. In an act of the sort of ridiculous generosity that is charachteristic of her, Stacy offered to pay for a site design for Mere O. What you see before you is the fruit of that gift. I speak for all the guys at Mere O when I say “Thank you” for the immense blessing.
Not only did Stacy agree to pay for the design, but she agreed to enlist the immensely talented and creative Natalie Jost. Natalie’s sense of style is incredible–for hours of fun viewing incredible designs, first visit her site, and then look through her portfolio. Natalie put up with long delays as we guys attempted to sort out what we wanted–we are absolutely thrilled with her work and extremely thankful for her patience.
On a personal note, this marks my return to the blogosphere as well. I have been absent for over a month now working on various projects. Work, marriage, a crazy project to write me a book have all consumed me, but nothing has kept me away from blogging like my new hobby: Firefly. We borrowed the DVD’s, watched them all the way through, and then immediately watched Serenity. My wife and I are officially “Browncoats”–reviews and further thoughts will follow. In the meantime, sign up for a potential season two here (I will!).
However, I should point out as “thanks” to Stacy, I have finally fulfilled two more reviews for “Blog for Books.” There are more coming, but I am closer to being caught up on my obligations. I would highly encourage you to check them out here and here. As always, I’d love to hear thoughts and feedback on them.
We are immensely excited about our new home, and we will commit to providing the same level of content our readers are familiar with–esoteric, unengaging and irrelevant to your life. Or something like that. We would continue to encourage you to join with us in our pursuit of all things Good, True and Beautiful.
