I began my first post at Andy Unedited with these words: "To write a blog, you need to have an interesting personality or provocative opinions. I have neither."
Nine years and over four hundred blogs later, it's still true. My kids nicknamed me Eeyore. I reckon I have the emotional range of a turnip. And I am at my most passionate when it comes to commas.
Although February 12, 2016, is my last day at IVP after over forty years as a full-time employee and thousands of IVP books published, by the good graces of folks here at IVP, I shall continue Andy Unedited. I will, however, now don the guise of a guest blogger.
I have enjoyed the opportunity to inflict such opinions as I have on an unsuspecting public. So if there are topics you think I should address, continue to let me know. Books, ideas, publishing, writing, history, editing, leadership, scholarship--all these and more continue to be important to me, and I think important to society.
But blogging needs one other element--fun. And as long as that lasts, so shall Andy Unedited.
