New Subtitle: “Southern Gospel’s Positive Blog”
After reading and taking into consideration all the comments in last week’s open thread, I changed the subtitle of this blog for the first time since it was launched. For the last 14 months, it’s been “Beyond the Headlines: Southern Gospel News and Analysis.”
I liked the idea of naming the blog “Southern Gospel’s Positive Blog,” but didn’t want to go ahead with it unless I saw that the other leading bloggers were okay with it. Once David Bruce Murray posted his comment that indicated he didn’t really mind the idea, I decided to go ahead with it.
Just to be perfectly clear, I don’t mean this as a criticism of other blogs. They choose to take a critical/analytical approach to commenting on this genre. I choose to approach this genre as a fan first and a commentator afterwards. I enjoy this music, and I hope some of that gets reflected in my posts. Other blogs do what they do, and do it well; while this subtitle does reflect how this blog is different, it’s not to say that it is better, just that it is aiming for a different target.
