Homily Podcast



Welcome to My New Blog

August 3rd, 2009, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

I first started a blog in 2005 and have been a faithful user of the Xanga platform since then. Over the years I’ve noticed that Xanga seems to have fallen by the wayside as far as mainstream blogging platforms go. However, a recent event convinced me that it was time to migrate. I sent a link from my blog to my Archbishop and he wrote back that the firewall at the chancery had blocked the entire Xanga domain as “obscene.” Well…

I decided if I was going to move, I’d go all out. So, I registered this new snazzy domain (Shawn is the Irish version of John and I take John the Baptist as my principal patron saint) and got my self-hosted WordPress site all up and running…including the much demanded homily podcast. As you can see, I still have only the very basic standard WordPress theme and have much work to do. I’m debating about migrating over all the old posts from Xanga, but that could be a chore. We’ll see. Thanks for visiting and stay tuned.

    I had some major trouble with my updating today and reloaded the whole thing. WordPress is powerful, but sometimes you can break things.
