Thanks to my friend Tim, I have an updated look for my blog. It’s still in the works, but I’ll be working out the kinks over the next few weeks. Enjoy.
Summer is always a hard time for me to blog. My schedule is inconsistent– traveling, seeing friends, and doing a bunch of youth ministry stuff– and so blogging gets put on the backburner. All that to say that this week I’m planning a comeback.
For the next 30 days I’m going to focus on writing. My goal is to write 100 words each day. 100 words is not very much, but if I try writing a little bit every day I will end up accomplishing more if I had not tried.
You should check out my wife’s blog, Simple Joys of Home. It’s brand new, and it’s already getting more hits than mine. If you read it, you’ll see why. Each post is an insight into why I married her.
It will mostly consist of short posts about organizing tips and funny family stories– all flowing out of her deep love for God and family. If you really want to know me, read her blog too– she’s my other half.
Two blogs to sample the gospel goodness.
- The doctrine of regeneration creates a culture of humility (Ephesians 2:1-9).
- The doctrine of justification creates a culture of inclusion (Galatians 2:11-16).
- The doctrine of reconciliation creates a culture of peace (Ephesians 2:14-16).
- The doctrine of sanctification creates a culture of life (Romans 6:20-23).
- The doctrine of glorification creates a culture of hope (Romans 5:2).
Our shortcomings and our failures stare us out of countenance, and then are we painfully weak. But this also is the highway to strength: ‘When I am weak, then am I strong.

My are my blog statistics for the year, from December ’09 to December this year.
Gospel-centered blogger Jared Wilson gave us in the blogosphere a good word on our craft.
“The integrity that matters is the integrity that you incarnate.”
Dr. John MacArthur writes about the impact of the web on our culture, and it’s sobering:
Meanwhile, the ease, immediacy, and affordability of Internet publishing has leveled the playing field between pundits and the proletariat. Anyone can start a blog, for free. Anyone with a computer (or cell phone) and an Internet connection can instantly broadcast his every opinion worldwide. Novices and scholarly authorities alike can employ the same media. Those who are most adept at gathering an audience are the ones who are being heard, not necessarily those most qualified to speak.

I’ve been re-working my blog almost all day today. It’s even caused me to start learning about HTML, which I never thought I’d do.
For now, my blog is complete. I hope it’s more readable and still pleasing to the eye.
…For My Blog.
This new theme is based on the minimalist idea that less is more.
Any comments or suggestions?
I’m starting over. Welcome to my new blog. After learning how cheap it was to get my own domain name, I decided I’d go for it. So here you are at my own personal website– www.ericdurso.com.
For the next few posts, I will be revisting some of my older articles I wrote for my former blog, and reposting them here. I hope that the change won’t confuse all my followers (all 8 of you) and that this will end up being a change for the better. Come, look around, and leave some comment feedback. What do you think?
