Site Update: It’s been a battle, and we sustained a few losses

Note from CM: I’ve completed the process of migrating our site to a new hosting platform. I learned I’m a complete philistine when it comes to the behind-the-scenes workings of our site. I also learned that instructions could be clearer for the process, especially for imbeciles like me. We lost several days of comments in […]

New Year’s Odds & Ends

Happy New Year! Just a few notes today on this first day of 2018… First of all, a hearty “thank you” to all you who read and comment here at Internet Monk. This remains a vibrant community of conversation. If you read regularly but don’t comment, I’d like to invite you to join in. We […]

Sorry for the delay…

  Yesterday was a travel day and I’m running late in posting… Hang in there, folks, Internet Monk is alive and well. But just like my wife always says, I’m a little behind!

Site Update: Conversations in the Great Hall

This morning, we introduce our new Internet Monk banner. We’ve been having a little trouble with the code the past day or two, so I’ve included the art in today’s post while we work on it. The banner at the top of the post will appear during the daytime hours and the one at the end will […]

Thank you for supporting Internet Monk

Thank you for your support. I really mean this. Internet Monk is a labor of love. We who write have “day jobs” and contribute articles to the site as we can. I, Chaplain Mike, oversee the iMonastery and do my best to take the lead writing responsibility. None of us gets paid, nor do we […]

Let’s take a break today. I think we need it.

Today, we’re going to take a break from conversation here at Internet Monk. This is a “no comment” post. Why? Because on Friday there were too many comments that simply do not fit with what we are trying to do here. I was very busy Friday and Saturday and so did not follow the discussion […]

Site Update – Feb 25, 2014

As you can see, we are out of Maintenance Mode and back online now. Unfortunately, we lost a few of our most recent posts in the process of moving to a new web host. I will be working to restore those today. I may not, however, be able to retrieve all of your comments. Sorry […]

Site Update – Feb. 2014

As most of you know, we’ve had some major changes around Internet Monk this winter. Foremost among them was the departure of our friend and mentor Jeff Dunn. Jeff and I met around the time of Michael Spencer’s death. He had helped Michael with his book, and when Michael knew he would be leaving this […]

Meet The Team

As Chaplain Mike shared yesterday, he is stepping back from day-to-day writing duties here at the iMonastery in order to focus on his two “real” fulltime jobs. When we talked recently he said needed time to eat and sleep as well as work. I told him that was a personal problem and suggested if he […]

Internet Monk Makes the New York Times!

I received an email from Shawn Askinosie today. Shawn is a criminal defense lawyer turned confectioner. His company, Askinosie Chocolate in Springfield, Mo., makes highly regarded bean-to-bar artisanal chocolate with 10 percent of the profits shared with the company’s cocoa farmers in Ecuador, Honduras, the Philippines and Tanzania. He was interviewed by an opinion page […]
