SouthernGospelBlog.com becomes Southern Gospel Journal
For most of this website’s existence, I have wished that I had picked a different name. “Blog” was a cool term eight years ago, much like “social media” is now, and something else will be in a decade. The term suggests an amateur and often short-lived personal opinion column, not a reliable news source taken seriously by its staff and readers. So, three or four years ago, I decided that I would rename this site if I could ever find the right name.
That day has arrived. Today, SouthernGospelBlog.com becomes Southern Gospel Journal.
Where “Blog” feels increasingly dated, “Journal” feels timeless, businesslike, and professional.
Several new columns and other changes have been planned to coincide with this rebranding. Several have already been rolled out, including the introduction of the CD Interviews column and the return of the Songs From the Books of the Bible column. Other changes should be announced in the near future.
Welcome to Southern Gospel Journal!
