New Site, URL, and Other Updates

Here’s a few updates as i’ve been wrestling with ideas for the past year or two.  First things first.  You’ve probably noticed a makeover.  I want my site to look less like a blog and more like a website.  Since my writing is so scarce, I don’t want to give the wrong impression that blogging is the primary purpose of the site.  It’s not.  My site is intended to be a resource rather than a place to keep updated on various items.  I’ll be continuing changes as I move forward and I welcome any suggestions you might have.  Since it’s a WordPress.com site, the sky is not the limit in terms of customization.

Second, i’m going to be changing my domain to http://www.michaeljfelker.com really soon.  I won’t bore you with all the reasons, but let’s just say that I made some expensive mistakes in getting my domain registered and some more expensive mistakes when I switched over from Blogspot.  The only reasonable solution was to do away with Apologetic Front and register my domain with WordPress.  Since i’m already paying for this site annually, I might as well go through them with my domain to save money.  With that said, I just like the idea better of using my name rather than some kind of website title.  Plus, I never really liked Apologetic Front and i’ve never been great at thinking of names.

Third, i’ve been experimenting with audio/video and utterly failing.  I watch and listen to my past video and podcast attempts and I just can’t justify putting material out at that quality.  So that’s why you haven’t seen much from me lately (in addition to the fact that I don’t have much free time).  But now, i’ve got a pretty nice video camera, green screen, mics, and the best software possible.  Now, it’s just a matter of trial and error before I can put out something that i’m proud of and can put my name on.  Why settle for anything less?

Last, while I will continue to put out material related to Jehovah’s Witnesses, that will not be the only subject I cover.  Islam, Mormonism, and Catholicism have equally confronted me of late.  But I still have quite a bit of studying to do in these areas before I feel comfortable enough posting material and subjecting it to scrutiny.  There’s so much misinformed noise out there on the internet and I don’t want to stoop to that level.
