Where I Blog


It was a massive undertaking, but after numerous technological struggles, I have a new blog home that contains all the blog posts I have ever written for public consumption and the comments left by all you lovely people! (Well, since September 2005, anyway, when I first moved to Typepad and lost all the comments in Blogger and Haloscan. Remember those good old days?)

Someone asked, do you really want all that old stuff on the Internet? There are probably some now awkward posts, and they may eventually disappear, but my children — my young people — have told me they value the family stories, and we don’t want to lose them.

I hope you’ll change your feeds or links or whatever else you may have for me. It’s still called Reflectionary, but the address is my very own name. So welcome to marthaspong.com. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Personal History, Where I Blog

Personal History

Moving posts from old blogs is hard. I can’t erase a marriage entirely. It intertwines with holidays, dogs, children, travels. But re-reading old stories is … hard.

Like all the other parts of this life change, it’s going to take some time.

What to keep

To those who have already put me in a feed reader at this address, I apologize! You will be seeing a lot of posts moved one at a time. LP and I had a big discussion about what to keep and what to discard, topically, and I’m taking it one post at a time.

Though not one *day* at a time, because the goal is to get OFF Typepad as soon as possible! Blogger, however, doesn’t like it and is demanding word verification on each “new” old post I move.

I’m moving sermons, or most of them, and lectionary reflections, and I suspect I will move dog stories and children stories and so forth. But there are seven years worth of posts on two blogs (and a period when I wrote on both of them), and I think I will run out of steam and be less fully inclusive as I move backward in time.

Anyway, thanks for your patience. (And if you’re impatient, feel free to ignore me until the move is over.)
