I have decided to re-brand. I’ll no longer actively blog or podcast from here. All of my content from 2015 and select items from the archives have been moved to Struggling for Purpose.
The reasoning for the re-brand is two-fold:
1. The Jesus Geek brand is fractured. There are 2 Christian hip-hop artists who use the name “Jesus Geek”. There’s a dead .com domain whose owner has not responded to any of my requests to purchase it. There’s a dead podcast with a similar name. And apparently a dead tech missionary group that used “jesus geek” in their branding too.
2. A .info domain no longer carries any authority. It’s simply not a trusted TLD and a .com carries more authority. It would take a mountain of SEO to overcome the negative effects of having a .info TLD.
I’m going to miss Jesus Geek. It was my online identity for such a long time. I still have my old Twitter account kicking around that I use to occasionally mention my current online projects but it sits mostly unused.
Maybe one day if I can buy the .com I’ll revive the Jesus Geek brand but for now it will just sit here collecting digital cobwebs.
