The (Not So) Return Of The 30 Day Challenge

Confession time.

I haven't really started yet. The sudden freedom of summer kinda came back to bite me and I have taken on more projects than I can apparently chew at the moment with an (almost) full time job. So for now I'm putting my crazy project on hold, though I certainly still intend to complete it before the summer is out.

On the good news front, the project which has been demanding a fair bit of my time is coming along swimmingly. I may or may not have mentioned before that I am building a new web-site for Seana's karate school, and I should have all the design work done by the end of the month; still have to work out some hosting details and such before I can commit to an official launch date. So! In lieu of exciting commentary I'm sure would have arisen from my breakneck read-through of the Bible, I shall instead offer up some screen caps and such of the site design for you to lay into and express dissatisfaction with the design!

(Seriously though, I'll probably need some testers and such to break the site before I put it up all the way. There shouldn't be much to break, but if it can be broken, or if it is just borked in its design, I'd like to know before I put it up for the rest of the world to see)

With that out of the way, please allow me to leave you with something I think you will enjoy:


There are more over at The Shiznit

Blogging The Bible: 30DC Redux

Right, so it is now May, and we have another 31 day month. Time for the return of the 30 Day Challenge! School is over and summer has begun, so this time around I'm shooting for something highly ambitious: to read the entire Bible by the end of May.

Given the scope of this project, I'm not planning on blogging about what I read every day; I do need some time to do other things, like work and socialize. I will, however, periodically give updates on how far I have read and share some of the interesting things that I stumble across/occur to me as I wind my way through the month. I might work out a schedule as I go along, just to give the project some structure, but I will at least commit to once a week posting.

Also, I do realize that this is not the best way to read the Bible, and in the interest of honesty I want to make it clear that this is a stunt. The best way to read the Bible is to take your time and reflect on the passages that you read, something I will not have the luxury of doing when I am trying to burn through 40+ chapters a day. That does not mean that there is no value in this project; I will be the first to admit that I don't engage with this text nearly as much as I should and this could be a way to get back into the habit, albeit at a slower pace once I finish.

So, wish me luck and happy reading!
