The tsunami of emails expressing their support and understanding has not abated at all! Many also express sadness, which I very much share. For me the blog was my “baby” which I “raised” for 16 years, and now this child of mine will go away. Of course I feel sad, even if I am now 100% sure that this was the right decision.
This being said, I really hope that we all can stay in touch. So I will, once more, list all the options I can think of now.
Right now I see three options which I can offer to you all:
- I will keep the emails [email protected] and [email protected] and I will check them at least once every few days or so. Feel free to contact me for any reason after March 1st.
- To my absolute amazement, after asking my Patreon supporters to cancel their pledges (which, quite reasonably, many did), some readers actually signed-up (when I saw that, my jaw dropped and I could not believe my eyes!). Well, quite obviously, the very least I can do is to remain available on Patreon for questions and other forms of interaction (video Q&As maybe?) on Patreon at until the very last patron cancels his/her pledge. And, frankly, I cannot even begin express my gratitude to those who so kindly extended their help to me and my family in spite of me having to close the blog.
- There is the Saker telegram channel (https://t.me/TheSakergroup) which you can join and that, unlike Patreon, will not cost you a penny! I do not personally run that channel (and that is very good, as I don’t have the energy for that right now), but I trust the person who does and we can stay in touch there too!
Finally, if somebody wants to create some other option, say a Discord channel, or any other possible “meeting place” – please let me know and I will announce it here.
Next, on the issue of archiving the blog.
My two awesome IT gurus are working on various options and testing various things. I will announce here what we have come up with when we have more than plans. Please stay tuned.
And, no, I have not forgotten about the Q&A :-) I am still getting questions. I am now thinking of recording it next week.
Love and thanks to all
PS: one more thing, I have now added a PDF version (made by a friend) of my “Christian Vignettes” to the subdirectory you can download all my books from (for free, obviously!): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1jp58_kKo2zwaENyNUfWa59YJPP-oE7O5
