A new year ...

... a new blog. Out with the old and in with this, the new.

This will be a blog based around the theme of five. Lists of five things, five bits and pieces, five snap shots, five thoughts on different subject matter (a book of the bible, a film, an issue etc.), five questions. It's intended to give some structure and focus to my blogging.

Why five? Here's five reasons:



  1. it was going to be seven, but I'm not sure I'd always have seven things to say about any given topic;

  2. three is not quite enough to say anything of significance, and would sound too much like the old three-point sermon formula;

  3. five fits nicely between seven and three;

  4. it's a neat, round number that goes well with our decimal/metric system of life;

  5. I have five fingers on my hand.

So, let's see how it goes.

Oh, and happy new year!

(P.S. Would you believe someone had already taken the blog address for "andysfive" forcing me to use the number "5" rather than the word? And they haven't touched it for two years!)
