Here I sit, reading through the new Beliefnet site, pondering and enjoying the new features, eagerly awaiting upcoming enhancments and the finishing touches. I think the rest of the members are going to be delighted with the new site once they figure out what they can do with it. It's going to be a change, for sure - and as creatures of habit, getting stuck in our ruts, there's going to be some grumbling. My prediction: the grumbles will last until they find out how much easier it is to do things that we used to have to know code for or know how to work around a software system to do.
I also predict that this won't be a space I use that much. I have a space on LiveJournal that I seldom think about using. I was never all that much of a hand at journaling things (writing diaries). I suppose I should, considering who I am and a lot of the things that I never say; it's just not me, though. I'm typically quiet and reserved - I love people, I love the interaction that comes from being with people, and I enjoy conversation. It's just that my private thoughts, my personal moments, are things that I treasure inwardly, in that most inner-point that we all have.
Anyway, four more days until the tentative opening of this site to the general membership. Gods, I only hope they are all as excited about the new format as I am!
