We’re moving

We just got to the end of Biblio’s Blood on Instagram (the story so far) and I’m getting ready to start a new series. I have to say I’m really excited about the Christmas holiday, as it’s going to be all about Biblio’s Blood, including moving to a new domain! Between now and then I was thinking about running through all of the Matty’s Paradigm material again, but I’m pausing to think for a moment. I love sharing Matty’s Paradigm on Instagam because it’s a safe, friendly place where I can relax and let it out in the form of a casual conversation. Instagram is non-judgemental and supportive. Not like Twitter.

Matty’s Paradigm has been slowly bubbling away for many years until a year ago I began blogging it. Twitter immediately became the battleground where all of the issues and ideas have been subjected to hard fighting. In some ways it is reminiscent of wrestling with God, perhaps like what Jacob experienced in Genesis. Wrestling perfectly summarises Twitter, but I have to give it its dues: there is no better forum for ideas. I feel like Matty’s Paradigm is being rigorously stress tested. It’s been a year of fierce battles and huge success, so in the run up to Christmas I’m going to chill out. I have decided to begin to pull together all the material I have that is based on my life in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Wake Forest University. I hope that you’ll enjoy it.
