we have a few other ys staff who blog. but until now, mine has been the only blog that “represents” ys in some way. now our publisher, jay howver, throws in with ysOpenBook.com. it’s a behind-the-scenes look at ys publishing in particular, and the world of publishing in general; plus jay will have some personal stuff and youth ministry stuff, i’m sure. jay’s a great writer and thinker, and tracks literally hundreds of blogs (FAR more than i do). so it’s great to have him in the fray. check it out, bookmark it, add it to your bloglines or other reader.
