Welcome to the NT Gateway Weblog

Welcome to the new weblog for the New Testament Gateway. I've been inspired to set this up by Jim Davila's fine Palaeojudaica weblog at http://paleojudaica.blogspot.com/, not least because of a comment he made in that recently that it would be helpful to have more people doing the same kind of thing. I've very much enjoyed reading his blog over the last few months and while I doubt I will be able to do as good a job as he, I am nevertheless encouraged to try something similar myself.

I've also been conscious recently of having struggled to find the time to update the New Testament Gateway as regularly as I used to do and as regularly as I would still like to do. Having a weblog as a sister for the NT Gateway proper will enable me to combine several operations into one: (1) I will use the blog instead of the clunky Logbook , which has always been something of a bind to keep up to date. Often when I add a new link, I have to make three separate changes, to the main index page, to the logbook and to the page in question -- and this is pretty cumbersome. (2) I can replace the newsletter service with this blog; (3) I can have a means of getting out important new links much more quickly. For a long time the Featured Links site was updated monthly. Recently, alas, I've not had the time to do that. I think -- I hope! -- a web log will enable me to push out new and interesting links more regularly. But I think overall the web log will enable me to add a new dimension to the NT Gateway and I hope it will be a welcome addition. Please let me have your suggestions for the web log; please continue to send in your new links; and of course keep on sending in those reports of broken links.
