Caffeinated Thoughts has been silent for a few weeks, and I wanted to take some time to explain why. 

I needed a break. As many of you are aware, I launched The Iowa Torch almost one year ago, moving the Iowa political coverage we used to publish here, over there. Caffeinated Thoughts shifted to provide commentary on culture, current events, faith, and politics. 

So for the past year, my writing focus has been news articles. However, my schedule has also changed in the past year, considerably impacting the amount of time to write. So I have to budget the time I have well. 

I was also feeling burnt out. I want the writing I do here to be thoughtful and challenging. That is hard to do when you feel burnt out.

I needed a break, so I took one. I apologize for not warning you. During this time, I considered whether or not I should continue Caffeinated Thoughts. 

The answer is yes. I do want to see this platform continue, so I’m publishing at Caffeinated Thoughts again. Today there will be a piece from John Hendrickson that follows this update. Tomorrow, I have a piece scheduled that I hope you enjoy and find challenging.

I want to be realistic. My goal is to publish 3 to 5 articles weekly, and I don’t mean from just me. I’m always looking for contributors. The more contributors we have, the more articles I can publish. So if you want to write about politics, culture, and faith from a conservative Christian point of view and can write well, drop me a line at shane@caffeinatedthoughts.com. I can’t pay you, but I can offer you a platform.
