Daily Inspiration hits 300 posts

{ Tags: None \ Aug19 }


Daily Inspiration just hit 300 posts with the article for August 16 2011. I almost missed it since articles have been posted in advance some days ago. Your Daily Inspiration has been around since 2008, but I have been sparing in its use because when I got it for free it had only 250MB free space. Recently however the amount of free space was raised to 750 MB. That means that I can be more regular in posting without worrying too much about space.

I started Your Daily Inspiration as an exercise.

By allowing a bible text given in the liturgy to interact with my memory of other liturgies attended and of other bible passages studied, I try to see how it resonates with the passages I know and with the passages that have begun to make sense in my life. It is my hypothesis that the interaction would confirm previous knowledge and create a ready store of “bible-links” in my memory that would help me understand other passages.

From there, it developed into a blog about the daily Mass readings. Right now, it has sections on the following:

  • Daily Readings
  • Weekly Overview of the Readings
  • Bible Reading Tips
  • Saint of the Day

The website also affords me with a lot of materials that supplement the articles I already write for the Bible Workshop and Res Biblica. The articles also help me with the daily homilies. Blog posts at Your Daily Inspiration are mostly from 300 to 500 words, and are written "out-of-the-box" so to speak. Sometimes I write about the first reading; at other times I write about the gospel. The material I write depends on whether I have blogged about a first reading or gospel selection before. Whenever I have written about the first reading or the gospel in a previous occassion, a new post will carry a link to it. In this case, the reading selection that is "new" is discussed. If both readings are "new", then I pay more attention to the first reading. And so on…

If you happen to visit Your Daily Inspiration, you’d find that I don’t have posts during the months of January to May or June. The months following Christmas allow me more time with Res Biblica and the Bible Workshop (these days, that also includes the podcast site). But once I make a final adjustment to Your Daily Inspiration — an adjustment that will definitively reduce my use of image files uploaded into the website — then I might just make sure those months are also filled up.
