Long ago, when printers still made books using paper and ink, we began a blog called Colophon because it appeared at the end of our web site and told people something about what made up our lives as nuns. Four and a half years later, it has become unwieldy – probably because contemplative nuns let their keyboards run away with them, given half the chance. Not only that but the blog engine we used has been superseded technically and it’s now possible to craft a typographically more attractive site without finding that Internet Explorer users are facing a blank screen. The world has changed, and so have we.
Advent is a time for new beginnings, so we have archived our old blog and begun this new one which you can get to either by coming straight to this address or, after the week-end, by going through our community web site. The RSS feed has been burned with Feedburner, so we’ll see how that works out.
Our web site makeover is nearing completion (quiet alleluias from Digitalnun) and should be online within 48 hours. There are bound to be teething problems but patience is often described as being the fourth Benedictine vow. Maybe we’ll end up making Benedictines of all our readers.
