Welcome to Frosted Echoes!

Frosted Echoes is a personal web log by a prolific notetaker named Robert. This site follows the POSSE "Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere" model, which is described as “a content publishing model that starts with posting content on your own domain first, then syndicating out copies to 3rd party services with permashortlinks back to the original on your site.”

Before the ascendency of social media, the blogosphere used to be referred, in a derogatory way, as an echo chamber. The "echoes" in the site name refers, in a positive way, to the fact that this blog pulls in thoughts from other independent blogs as well as social media accounts and major publishers. This project is an effort to celebrate the earlier days of blogging. The site focuses on faith, noise, technology and adjacent topics.

Reverberations From Around The Internet is a roughly weekly Frosted Echoes newsletter that captures some of the thoughts circulating on the internet along with some personal reflections. It's free and you can check it out by subscribing with your email address. Since this blog is self-hosted, I'm the only one that sees your email address and it won't be shared.

Frosted Echoes is powered by the open source publishing platform Ghost and is hosted on Digital Ocean.
