90 posts and counting – I think Maximize My Life is here to stay. Excitement at how many people are reading on almost every continent captivates me every time I check my Google Analytics.

To everyone that reads, to everyone that supports – thank you.
Requesting Your Patience
In another life, I am a law student with responsibilities that make maintaining this blog tremendously difficult sometimes.
Over the next 2 weeks (Monday May 14 – Friday May 25) I will be doing my first set of exams in this final 2 years of my (5 year) program. 6 exams, 8 subjects, on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 2 weeks.
There may be some turbulence on the blog. I ask for your patience in the following areas:
I will not be as available to respond to comments and emails. I will respond as soon as possible, just not instantly.
I should have enough content to last me 2 weeks. If I run out, post late, or have to skip a day however, please bear with me.
Please note also:
1. There have been changes to the site:
I have changed the commenting system. This is to improve the conversation. You may tag your friends on Facebook and Twitter directly. Test it out!
2. I would love to hear from you:
How may I improve this blog? How may I serve you better? What are the burning issues central to your life that I am not addressing? I would love to hear your feedback – how you have been finding the content, the focus and message of this blog. *EMAIL ME

From the Don’t Waste Your Life Campaign to the new Man Up Campaign, the boys over at Reach Records seem to be clocking a 24 hour shift to both share and personify their message that young people (especially men) can and should be unashamed about their faith.
