It’s a new year and that means some new changes here at Defending Your Life. First of all, we’ll be switching up the tenses of these blog posts from third person to first person. Writing about yourself in the third person is really difficult and impersonal. Plus, it’s no surprise that I/we (meaning Brad and I) are writing all these posts, so moving forward, we are going to stop pretending to write about “them” and instead write about us. Mostly I (Dana) will be writing and updating the posts, but we’ll let you know when it’s Brad or Jeremy or some other third party writer.
Secondly, as we’ve mentioned in a couple of the podcast episodes (which I’m sure you all are completely up to date on, right?), we have added some additional sections to this site! Take a look around, but most noticeably, we’ve added some of the projects we are working on (Brad’s memoir project, my #ForcedJoyProject), more in depth details about Brad’s Complete Treatment, and a Community section to keep you all connected with what we are working on. You’ll also notice a couple new sections that we’ll be implementing moving forward (Profiles in Courage and Fundraising efforts by friends and family).
With the podcast, we closed out the year with over 50 episodes! We are currently adding an intro/outro to all the published episodes (or season 1, if you will) and hoping to get them up on iTunes soon for even easier listening capabilities.
And last but not least, we are officially on social media! What’s a blog/podcast/website without a social media presence?? This is a big way on how we can stay engaged with all of you (especially when we don’t have time to update the site), so do us a favor and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
