But all this is now in the past. What of the future? I can honestly say that I have come close to shutting DET down in periods of low blog activity (i.e., high offline activity). But I have never done it because I always saw some kind of a future here. That hasn’t changed. I have been very excited this past year to move DET into a more collaborative format where a number of different angles and perspectives can find their voices in the theo-blogosphere (check out the about page for more). So I heartily recommend the contributors page to any of you who have not yet read it (and even if you have, go read it again), and check out some of the new contributor’s posts (each contributor has a category tag in the list on the left sidebar). What’s more, be sure to leave them comments of encouragement, appreciation, and / or – even better – critical engagement!
So on this 6th anniversary of DET’s founding, I want to issue a hearty thanks to all those who have read and commented over the past six years, and who continue to read and comment. I look forward to the conversations that we will have in year seven!
And if you raise a glass tonight, raise it once for good ol' DET!
