Spectrum Perspectives: Singular Spectrum, This Year
Last week we gave you guys an update on what we had been doing for the summer. This week, we thought we would talk a little bit about our vision for Singular Spectrum and the way it fits into God’s plan for our lives right now. We also would love to hear from you guys about what you’d like to see from the blog. In fact, we’d love to just hear from you, the readers, in general. Post a comment: let us know what you’ve been doing the past few months, and let us know what you’d like to see us do with this blog.

I’ve said several times throughout the existence of this blog that the primary reason I write is that I can’t help but do otherwise; there are words inside of me that have to spill out somewhere, and if somebody on the internet finds some value in what I’d be writing anyway, it’s so much the better.
I don’t know when exactly it happened, but at some point last year I realized that people did find value in at least some of my posts. I realized that I do, at times, have an effect on people’s lives through the seemingly trivial act of just writing down my thoughts. It follows, that I now carry responsibility for what I write. That’s not always a comfortable feeling for me, but at the same time it’s something in which I rejoice.
This year, I’d like to do a better job of knowing our readers. I want to hear your stories just as you hear mine. In the comments below, let us know: who are you? What kind of things do you like? What brings you to Singular Spectrum, and how can we better serve you through this little corner of the internet for which we are the caretakers? I want to hear from you. We all do.

When we started Singular Spectrum, it was a way to keep in touch with two of my best friends. They fled to the far corners of the country and it seemed like a good way to keep the distance from coming between us. What began as a simple experiment with three friends, however, has grown into something more, and now we have almost 90 registered followers keeping up with our assorted ramblings and musings. And as the Spectrum has expanded to include you, my friends, so too has my vision for it. Now, I’m not just here to shoot words back and forth to the Adams. I’m here for you guys, to tell you about what’s important to me and to discuss what’s important to you, to hopefully encourage you with my writing as much as you all encourage me by reading and supporting the crazy endeavor of three friends out to glorify God and write about things that matter. So thank you so much for joining us and making this blog something greater than I ever expected it to be. I’m looking forward to spending more time with you.

Well, it’s been over a year since we started this blog. We started it as an experiment. And so far it’s been a great one. It’s been a little rough at times, and I apologize for that. But it’s been great. In the next year I would like to see us grow more, as a trio, writers, in readers, and most importantly; spiritually. I think in this last year we have already grown so much, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for this next year. My purpose in this blog is to emphasize the Gospel, Jesus, hope, love, and faith. I want to continue to challenge our readers to grow, as I grow. Because you, as the readers, are in it with us. I pray this blog continues to challenge and grow each and every one of us. God is good all the time. Let the next part of this adventure begin.
