Anthony W. Brooks
I want to start off by apologizing for my absence. It has been over a week since I’ve typed at any length, but with the election and a crazy work schedule I found no time to wander about “dem internets” or type on the keyboard to any extent. I know that you will forgive me because you are a kind and compassionate audience.
Because of the recent lag in productivity I will be adding a position to the blog that will ease my load and give new and exciting content to the blog. This position is that of the Associate General Editor that will certainly share the load of responsibility. Cynthia J. Welborn is a married woman who is pursuing her degree in writing. She has a confident prose and will contribute her voice in the areas dealing in women’s issues and piety. She and her husband, Brandon, are about to celebrate two years of marriage.
Her responsibilities include editing all content before publication and contributing posts weekly to the forum.
Some thoughts on this, that, and the other thing
This is the reason I chose Cynthia: she is a woman. There are many things she can speak to that I can’t. Also, she is skilled in writing and has a good sense of humor, bonus. Also she is a native Texan that lives less than an hour from me. Put aside the fact we are blood related, which we are, she benefits literally nothing from writing and editing this blog. She has the credentials, she will do it for fun, and it will benefit all parties involved.
That being said, she has been writing since we were children. Hundreds of pages of short stories and essays, she loves it. She has never been published before and I want to help her be read. This is an opinion blog, so we tend to stay at the bottom of the intellectual food chain; she can say what she wants and not be in danger of being blacklisted.
The other thing is, I needed the help. Y’all, we’ve been growing at a phenomenal rate and I want to continue releasing content, but it is becoming too much. There isn’t much that will keep me from writing when I have the time, but I never have the time. I have 42 blogging titles ready to write in my file but I have no time to write them. She will help free up my time by editing.
Soli Deo Gloria!
