It’s been said that absence makes the heart grow fonder but, in this case, I’m guessing that it’s just made you wonder what I’ve been up to since my last update. Ever since the launch of my new blog, Time Out for Digging Out with Julie Albin, I’ve been wanting to create a separate podcast for the longer personal essays that were the trademark of my former newsletter. The thought of making this change was a daunting one but, in May, I took a deep breath and purchased the equipment that was needed to make the change. Although the learning curve associated with switching from a PC to an Apple computer was steep, I now have the ability to edit existing—and record new—podcast episodes at home using Garage Band.
The next time you enter my name in the search box of the iTunes store, you will notice that stories published through 2010 appear as part of a new podcast titled Finding the Message in the Mess of Everyday Living. You will also see that Time Out for Digging Out is now listed as the audio version of my blog. Although it will take a while to get caught up, I have uploaded two episodes to give you an idea of what the new format will sound like.

As always, your feedback is welcome and appreciated so please let me know if there is something that I could be doing differently to improve my message or ministry. Two heads (or a a few hundred) are definitely better than one as we put every system to the test until the good is better and the better is best.
