Minor Thoughts is a joint creation of Joseph Martin and C. Adam Volle. If you have any questions about the site, you can email Joe.
We started our first blog, The Theocrats, after noticing that the “blog thing” was starting to look popular. We wanted to get in early and see what all of the type was about. So, we did. Adam wrote our first post on June 4, 2004. Theocrats was our attempt at writing about the Christian life and what having King God was really all about. It was a good first attempt at blogging, but it didn’t work out quite the way we’d hoped.
So, we started a new blog here at Minor Thoughts. We’ll observe the world around us, ask questions, and look for answers. We don’t have all of the answers, even though we sometimes act like we do. We’ll do our best to find them and, along the way, we’ll tell you our biases and do our best to keep open minds.
We host the Minor Thoughts web site on a Joyent Shared Accelerator.
