Blog Directions

I am soliciting advice from you my readers.  Over the last two weeks or so I have been posting parts of a paper that I wrote and was reading a shorter version at the North American Patristics Society.  So I want to ask would you rather I keep posting stuff like this every once in a while?  Or were the posts too long, too technical (maybe not for you all, but maybe for someone stumbling on to the blog), took too long to post the whole paper, etc.?  Please let me know what you all think.  I want to keep writing about my research interests; but I also want to post about spiritual lessons from the saints, spiritual practices, monastic lessons, and other Christian topics.

So what would you all like to read about?

I can start summarizing the things I am reading for academic purposes and trying to pull some life lessons or interesting connections between different religious studies sub-categories.  I can re-tell the stories of the saints that I have read about and read about.  I can also post on devotional-ish stuff.  Like my previous post on blogspot, called Lamenting with Job.

Let me know and I will try to post more on those topics.  Also if you have any questions about the early church or religious studies stuff, ask them in the comments or send me a  question on twitter or email or try to send me a message telepathically (it might work, I doubt it, but give it a try) and I will try to answer it or direct you to a book or article that answers the question. 

Thanks for reading and your comments in advance.
