This is a revived blog. It started out as a blog in my native language Afrikaans. For a few years it was quite active. There were many other Afrikaans bloggers who liked to argue about the topics I discussed.
But then things changed. Many of those bloggers went away and it became quite. My interest to blog dwindled. So, for a number of years the blog went quiet. However, I decided not to delete it. The funny thing is that even though I did not place new content, it kept on receiving traffic.
Then, a few years ago, I decided to write a book. I also decided to use self-publication to publish it. That means I need to promote it somehow. I could start a new blog. However, if the current one already receives some traffic, it may be a good idea to revive it. Since, the book was written in English, the blog needs to be in English now. So now the revived blog is English. It still has the Afrikaans content. Most Afrikaans speaking people are bilingual anyway.
So the purpose of the current blog is mainly to promote the book. However, since my book covers so many different topics, I hope to address various topics. Of course I may also discuss topics not related to the book. Hopefully, it will excite some debate, because I enjoy that. 🙂

Hallo, het nog nie van jou geloofs-woere gelees nie (gaan nou), maar dog sal jou solank ook van mhy blog vertel wat oor oa. ook geloofsake gaan. Aan die begin ook lank en aanhoudend deel geneem aan ‘n teologiese debat. Ek het ook gevoel, soos jy se, mense wil nie hoor nie!
Ek was bietjie afwesig van die blogosfeer met ‘n 6 weke vakansie in SA en baie werk na my terugkeer. Ek was nogal verbaas om te sien hoe die algemene trant van jou woernaal verander het. Toe lees ek hier en nou maak dit heeltemal sin. Ek dink dis great dat jy ‘n apologetiese standpunt in neem hier, veral teen wêreldse onkunde oor God. Ek vind ook nogal dat op my woernaal meer begin fokus op my Christenskap. My apologetiese fokus is egter om Christene te help en inligting te gee om hulle te bewaar teen valse leeringe wat die kerk betree.
Hou gerus my woernaal ook dop vir inligting wat dalk vir jou opbouend kan wees.
